So did anyone get the chance to watch the Super Bowl I rebroadcast last weekend? I would have myself but I had to work nights all weekend long.
From what I gathered about it, the word “rebroadcast” is kind of a stretch since the NFL Network people basically had to cull together footage of the plays from about a dozen different sources and then splice in an archived radio call. I don’t have any idea what kind of footage they would have used though. Was it archived TV videotape (some of which is apparently floating out there somewhere)? Was it the slo-mo NFL Films clips we’ve all seen a hundred times? Was it some grainy black-and-white 8mm film from some fan in the stands? Was it plays simulated by Madden 2016, or God forbid, Tecmo Bowl? Was it some weird combo of all of the above? And how well did it all flow together with the radio call synced up?
I’ve long considered this one of my TV “holy grails” (even if the result does end up only having a smidgen of actual TV footage at best), so what kind of experience was watching it for the fan? Was it awesome, meh, or don’t even bother?
