I remember being amped for this game but it being a pretty big disappointment . Did y’all like it?

Anyone remember those horrible Electronic Footbsll games? The stadiums looked great and the miniature players did as well but then you try and play it. You’d set it up and turn it on and the players just went all over the place. I don’t think I ever learned how to play it

Oh and train sets were pretty popular back in the day as well. Toys r us would have 7-8 sets set up high on the walls. I don’t think train sets are even a thing anymore

Fun fact, the theme song to The Littlest Hobo became very popular in England because a travel agency licensed the song for a series of ads.

I’m betting that most of you will not have experienced one of these. I completely forgot about them but just saw one in an old movie.
