This Was Us

On February 3, 2000, Americans witnessed a media event that had, until not long before, seemed wholly unlikely.  That day, Vince McMahon, he of World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment) fame, was sitting in front of the cameras to talk about professional football.   What ever happened to football? He asked the cameras, rhetorically. […]
