I had one of these. Never did figure out where the "fun" was supposed to come in. The men were mounted on rubber pads that had small "teeth" on the bottom. You hit the switch and the field started vibrating. W O W !

We had one of these when I was growing up. There were four of us boys, and we would sit around and play for hours! Sometimes we would throw 'obstacles' in there too. One time we even tried to play it with Transformers!
Ah, simple times....

either expat had one as an adult, or some of you guys are older then i thought. football, imho, is always stupid.

I know some of you young whipper-snappers haven't gotten around to learning cipherin' yet but if you can work out where the "47" in my handle comes in you might get close. Then, there are pictures on my web site!

I Googled for Expat's website but didn't really have a clue as to what it might consist of so I was having trouble finding anything. But then I added his age and I was given the links to the articles about the 47 million year old fossil they found recently. Seemed appropriate, somehow. 😉

Never had one of these and I don't think I'd know what to do with one if I had one. I'm not much of a sports person either.

Expat - 47 is my alma mater's (Pomona College in California) "magic number", so I just thought you were super cool. But if you're not, well, I can't help you there.

If a 1939 Plymouth isn't cool enough for you, I just can't help it. Sorry it wasn't a woodie. :coolsmile:
