On Sunday, February 2nd, the Kansas City Chiefs will face the San Francisco 49ers in Superbowl LIV (that’s 54 for you non-Romans).
Superbowl I (one) was played way back in 1967, almost television pre-history.
And only one person is known to have recorded the game. He’s dead now and the family wants to publish the tape.
But, the big mean NFL claims rights to the game and the tape and is threatening to sue if the tape is released to the sports crazy public.
One fan is now crowdfunding to make a documentary about the tale of the tape.
He thinks that if the story gets out, the publicity will be enough to shame the NFL into allowing the tape’s release. (His Kickstarter page reminds folks that the NFL has sued churches for having Superbowl watch parties.)
While the all-or-none target is a modest $50,000 to make the film, the top stretch goal is $750,000 to buy the tape from the owners.
