Super Bowl I

It seems odd, in this era of YouTube, where every video in the world finds its way online and becomes harder than kudzu to eradicate, but even classic programs use to get broadcast once and disappear into the ether without an archived film or videotape copy. But a football fan has come forth with one of the most coveted missing links in sports history: a videotape of Super Bowl I in 1967.

Note how the instant replay boasts the technical miracle of "video tape," much as fans a few years later would marvel at "live via satellite."
