This Movie Changed NFL Football Forever!
Fear not ladies, this motion picture is an amazing telling of the classic story made for children, and lovers, and lovers of children, but the fact remains, it was responsible for changing the relationship of American NFL Football with television forevermore. In 1968 two AFL teams were playing football and it was being shown across the country on the NBC television network. The day was Sunday November 17, 1968, and the Oakland Raiders were playing the New York Jets in a thrilling football game. The score was close, and either team could pull off a victory . . . and as the clock on the wall ticked 4pm, it was time to begin the Sunday afternoon movie . . . this movie, the 1968 version of Heidi. The network turned off the football feed and started this movie.
In the few remaining minutes of the football game the Oakland Raider miraculously scored two quick touchdowns and won the game . . . and fans around the nation never saw it. Dubbed the 'Heidi Bowl' this game created so much football uproar that all sports leagues soon added a clause to their television contracts requiring all networks to continue showing the game regardless of the time and the score and the already announced television schedule. In fact, the NBC television network, the target of angry football fans, installed a special red telephone, called the 'Heidi phone' that connected the central network control room to the football field so that never again would a previously scheduled show or movie start before the end of an NFL football game. So gals, don't just grab the children when you get ready to watch this inspiring tale of life and love, get dad too and tell him that it is all about the game. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
