    Fans of NES and the 1986 World Series (Sox-Mets-Buckner)

    If you enjoyed RBI Baseball on the classic NES, and if you loved the 1986 World Series (Buckner's foibles), or if you just enjoy bizarre stuff on the Internet, WATCH THIS:

    http://www.sandiegoserenade.com/2006...e_6_reena.html

    "So last week had the first day since I've been keeping the blog that I missed an entry. I felt bad about this lack of discipline, and no doubt you were upset as well. I wanted to post the little project that I was working on that diverted my attention from posting about music. I decided that I wanted to enter this YouTube Cybersmack contest and 2in $25,000 for creating the best internet viral video, so I decided to re-enact Game Six of the 1986 World Series in RBI Baseball, my favorite video game of all time. Game Six is one of the most surreal, unbelievable displays of sports in history, and hopefully now that the Sox have emerged victorious in the World Series, it can be seen more as an utterly stupifying comeback, and less of a devastating choke job.

    So this took a long time, and I heard more of the RBI theme music in those hours than a man ever should. But I also learned a good deal about the game. Namely these two things:

    -Vin Scully is a great announcer. During the 20 minute plus bottom of the tenth, the other "color man" in the booth chimes in for about 3 different comments, one of them just being "Golly!" The difference between a run of the mill broadcaster and a hall of famer is very apparent, but I cut most of the color guy out because of time constraints.

    -Secondly, the blame that Bill Buckner has taken for this loss over the years is just shockingly high compared to the Red Sox pitching staff. They are the true people who choked the game away. Obviously Buckner made a terrible error, but they put the Red Sox in an unbelievable position, one that you can't imagine any of today's modern super-closers ever ending up in.

    Without further ado, here is the video: The 1986 World Series Game 6 Re-Enacted in RBI Baseball. Unfortunately it is about 6 minutes longer than the three minute YouTube contest limit, but I hope that people enjoy the video even if it doesn't result in a major cash payday for yours truly."

    strawberry hit so many HRs in that game. My first baseball game. I would keep his "career totals" in a checkbook my mom gave me to write in. Every time I'd hit a HR with darryl, I'd write the number (which as a 6 year old I just decided to start at 500) one above the one that I had down before it. Darryl hit over 800 homeruns, maybe I'll break out the RBI someday with my son and see if we can get him to 1000. Oh darryl

    Mike Scott's split-fingered fastball was unhittable in RBI. Nasty, nasty stuff.

    Ellis Burks was unbelievable. He and Eric Davis were the best Power/Speed combo players in the game.
