CRADLE OF AVIATION MUSEUM

Definitely one of the coolest places to play Tecmo is among the aircraft housed at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Long Island. Safe to say the jets were firing on all cylinders, and not just Byrd and McMillan.


Rausse wins it

Words from winner Brian Rausse after his big win at LI Retro:

"There's always a few moments that turn the tide of a game and sometimes a tournament.  The defensive stand in that game (Championship Game #1) was big as was the fortuitous BJ Tolliver 30-yard fumble scoop to take the lead in the 2nd quarter.  Your (Danny K's) offense was firing on all cylinders the first half of the Denver-Tampa final and I almost started beating myself up for taking Tampa.  I'm more comfortable with Denver, but think I remembered you like Tampa so I went with them.  Earlier in the game, you had a TD pass over the middle and I had muttered something under my breath that Haddix didn't jump. I am grateful he did that second time.  If I was going to win that game, Haddix needed to be a factor and he ultimately was."
