SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, all of the NFL Blitz games are pretty affordable. You can get most of them for less than $10. The new-ish re-release from 2012 is available for $15 on the Playstation and Xbox networks.

NFL Blitz‘s announcer is absolutely incredible. You can listen to a full sound clip compilation here, and it’s worth it, even if its 30-plus minutes. Said announcer is Tim Kitzrow, and as mentioned on the show, Vice Sports had a good article with him about how he only got a couple hundred bucks for his original work.

– Vice Sports also has a neat article about how the hell the game got made with the approval of the NFL.

– No timestamps this week, because hey, it’s a holiday! But there is a special Blooperoonie at the end…
