Guess The Game…
…From The Scoreboard
Today’s scoreboard comes from Christopher Hickey.
The premise of the game (GTGFTS) is simple: I’ll post a scoreboard and you guys simply identify the game depicted. In the past, I don’t know if I’ve ever completely stumped you (some are easier than others).
Here’s the Scoreboard. In the comments below, try to identify the game (date & location, as well as final score). If anything noteworthy occurred during the game, please add that in (and if you were AT the game, well bonus points for you!):
Please continue sending these in! You’re welcome to send me any scoreboard photos (with answers please), and I’ll keep running them.
Dallas Texans @ Oakland Raiders at Candlestick Park 9/24/1961. Dallas won 42-35.
Dallas Texans at Oakland Raiders, Sunday September 24th 1961 at Candlestick Park. Texans win, 42-35.
obviously texans at oakland so 1960-1962. game score implies could only be 1961.
september 24, 1961
dallas texans at oakland raiders
interesting is that it looks like both teams scored 8 points in final 4:45.
Sunday Sep 24, 1961, Dallas Texans 42, Oakland Raiders 35. Candlestick Park.
That’s the one and only Bob Coolbaugh scoring on a 28 yard pass from Tom Flores (Oakland would convert a two-point conversion to take a one-point lead but Dallas would score again to win – with a two pointer of their own – 42-35). Presumably Dave Grayson’s obvious face mask infraction was penalty-declined.
September 24, 1961 Candlestick Park. Oakland’s coach was Marty Feldman. Not *that* Marty Feldman.
