The Lost Packers Chiefs Super Bowl I Video

It is amazing to believe that Super Bowl one, which was covered by both NBC and CBS was not preserved by anyone. There is some NFL Films footage, but aside from that, neither network had saved a recording of the first Super Bowl (Otherwise known as the NFL AFL Championship Game) And back then, hard to believe I know, but in addition to not being able to pick up but three stations of which you had to hold the rabbit ears just right to minimize the snow on the screen, NOBODY had a Video Recording Device.

So, now the Wall Street Journal says that someone had recorded the game and stored it in the attic. It needed to be restored, and now, perhaps, we might all get to actually see the game that started it all.
Here is the link for a great read.
