You could say it's the best American football game on the Jaguar, but is that saying much? Find out in this episode, along with the id Software connection, a Super Bowl prediction, and what the heck this game has to do with distant-future generational starships.

Also included is feedback from Kevin, some storytime, and a couple surprises. Hopefully not the terrible kind of surprises.

This shows an inexplicable completed pass for the Bengals (brown helmet, white jerseys) in instant replay. The yellow crosshairs are fixed to the ball's position.
