So, let me present it to you like this. from weiyismart's blog

I can still picture myself as a player in the Tecmo Bowl. I've still got that video game. I have the game which I could play on. It's just in a box located in storage. It's iconic. It really makes me feel good to Madden nfl 22 coins have grown men in their 40s telling me"Hey, my cousin and I got into the biggest struggle of our life because we each wanted to be in Tecmo Bowl when we were young. So our parents took the game and my dad locked it up in his tool cabinet. We weren't able to play with it for a whole month since the fight was so intense. I hear it a lot. When I'm at the sports memorabilia exhibitions, there are people who come up with that video game. They tell me, 'I've own the machine that I play it on. My kids play it. My grandkids play it ... and everyone continues to debate who is gonna become Bo Jackson.' Tecmo Bowl ... that was quite a bit of technology at the time. You look at it now and you're like, "Wow this is an old fashioned.'

Have you never participated in Tecmo Bowl?

I have not played Tecmo Bowl. It's the honest truth of God. I have watched people perform it frequently. But I had an idea of what I could do. I knew about what my Tecmo Bowl man could do. It is a pleasure for me to hear people praise me from that game.

Part of your video-game return to Madden is celebrating Nike's legendary Bo Knows campaign. Let us go back to the beginning. How did Bo Knows' brand present the idea for Bo Knows to you?

We came across Bo Knows accidentally. Writers, directors, sketchers -- all of us were sat with a storyboard for our next shoot. We wanted to cut the story down as it was way too long. Everyone was giving their thoughts about this or that. I said, "Why shouldn't this be done? ... Then why should we shift this over here, put this there, then combine it, and cut out about five or six seconds?' They glanced at me and said "Wow. That'll probably work. Someone else across the table looked to me and said "Bo Knows!' Then it stuck. It was not like anyone sat around and thought about it or stayed up all night trying to think of the catchy phrase. It just happened at the war table , discussing shoots.

Before you got an iconic shoe, for instance, the Nike Air Bo Turf, in the year 1990, you launched your first Nike Air Trainer 3, which was later referred to as your shoe. What are your memories about that Air Trainer 3?

So, let me present it to you like this. In 1969 as I was in the first grade , growing up in rural Alabama during winter, it was in the mid-30s outside. And I was required to attend school in barefoot. Shoes were not allowed. I'm not saying this for sympathy or as a sob story. However, I can recall my brother standing a block further away from his home. I'm in front of the door. Our sister was just a block away from my brother. another sister was waiting at an intersection at the bus stop. My sister who was at the bus stop saw the bus top the hill only a couple of blocks away, she would yell her sister. She would shout to my brother, and my brother would shout at me. And then I'd go out the door barefoot. At the point that my brother was able to reach my first sister I'd be able to catch him before he even got there. At the time we made it close to our bus stop, I'm 15or 20 feet ahead of cheap Madden 22 coins my brother and sister. From walking to school in sandals in the winter of '69 to growing older and having a sneaker inspired by my own ... I'm fortunate.
