  1. Every once in a while I poke outside of TecmoBowl.org and am inspired by other online communities. In the past, you either just sort of made a first post somewhere random, or a "Hi there" post wherever you felt to. Thus, if you're new here, or even if you've been here since day one, feel free to say "Hi " in this thread. If you're new to TecmoBowl.org, you might do yourself a favo by looking over our New Members Thread for valuable information and descriptions about what this forum has to offer. And while you're at it, why not add yourself to the TSB Players Map? We'd like the Players Map to eventually help Tecmo Super Bowl fans be able to see who is in their area for starting up a tournament, or just finding a new bud to play a game.
  2. I've been watching Star Trek Deep Space Nine lately. Can just stream them at points while I'm working from Amazon Prime
  3. I think i'm imagining World Cup soccer as well when I make this statement. I can't think of any hockey event that I'd prefer to watch. I'll watch the shit out of the USA play in the World Cup and pretend I know what's going on. If my only two choices were some random soccer game or random hockey game I probably would turn off the TV.
  4. It's not like I've never watched hockey before. In fact, I've attended an NHL in person. I've never actually been to either a NFL or NBA game in person. We have a high school level team here in Lincoln. Those are fun to go to on the occasion I score tickets for them. I just don't really care about hockey at all. To be honest, I'd probably rather watch soccer on TV and I don't care about soccer either.
  5. Was a great read. Would recommend if you ever used this console. This was THE THING back in the day and shifting to nestopia in online tecmo was a hard sell for years given how good this emulator was.
  6. Pretty stoked about this. Would love to not store 8 crt tvs in my basement
  7. Reality TV? If anyone's spending their time watching that they need to get out more. I'm really into Fargo though....with all the snow and ice that's sort of like the NHL playoffs. Otherwise, I never grew up playing nor watching hockey. It gets cold here but there aren't enough ponds here and it doesn't stay cold enough for ice to form. I just really will never care about it though our back and forth is fun.
  8. They're a company that makes the majority of their money on subscriptions (around 2/3rds). They are bleeding money because people are cord cutting and people not interested in sports are no longer obligated to pay for ESPN when they do pay for online subscriptions. Why would I wait around to watch a highlight on a show if I can just pull it up on the internet?
  9. Looks like the Jags were on the same page with me. Considering they're the Jags, I'm not sure I should feel smart.
  10. I wasn't aware the NHL was still in business. Bully on them!
  11. View File TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 25 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017.

  12. The MVP of the entire tournament might have been @arncoem and his universal remote. Switching TVs from Coax to AV so we could use more Retrons = Legendary.
  13. Here's a writeup from Jimmie. I had spent time with him early and had no idea he was sick. Great guy. http://thebig1070.iheart.com/onair/jimmie-kaska-36883/retro-esports-a-day-at-the-15725875/
  14. As a note, if one of your upcoming wedding photos isn't successfully recreating your avatar, you're doing it wrong.
  15. No reason you can't do this now...makes you seem like an elite daylight drinker. Glad we got to continue our annual running into each other after being fingered by the Madison Airport security tradition alive!
  16. I don't necessarily know a lot of the new guys so I'm having a hard time putting together nicknames/names I try to put a face to a name when I can. Thus, if you're going to be in attendance, drop a line here. Please say hi, especially later in the day when I have been eliminated Also, I'm going to forget people's name just because I don't see them enough. I'll try and fight through my natural tendency to be embarrassed by this. Matt (Knobbe) (I am on the left. On the right is Josh (Coconuts) )
  17. I didn't know Odell owned Husker gear!
  18. I have a Coconuts Instagram filter
  19. In Wisconsin this is known as Bontempo-ing
  20. This is a replica of the shirt Flo lost his virginity in
  21. This is amazing. Thanks for sharing
  22. when you look under the joystick control panel do the controllers show up? If windows recognizes them, they should work. Should look something like this (this isn't the same controller)
  23. Did you get hooked up?
