In 1971, during the halftime show of a game between the NY Jets and the Patriots, my dad's high school marching band performed. My dad, a trumpet player, had a solo in the show. He asked me if I could find video of that performance. Can anyone point me in the direction of where that could be found or who could possibly provide it in a physical format?

In an attempt to cut the cable cord, I'm using NFL Gamepass this year. My favorite feature so far is the ability to switch between the televised broadcast audio to the home and away teams' radio audio during the game. (I only get the tv audio on rewatch.)
So who should I listen to? Is there a Vin Scully equivalent I'm missing out on? Or is there a tv broadcast pair that I should always listen to, no matter what?

I'm not a big NFL fan but have joined a pool "cause I have to". I figure if I can get basic stats: offense/defense/QB rankings, injuries...I won't embarrass myself too much.
Any help would be appreciated.

I've been searching the net for days now trying to find a way to become an authorized NFL jersey reseller, to no avail. Who should a prospective retailer deal with? Nike or the NFL? What are some authorized distributors a prospective retailer/reseller could buy from?

I'll be in the Outer Banks the weekend before Thanksgiving ... I'm assuming that local television comes from somewhere in NC and that I'll get Tampa Bay @ Carolina on the local FOX affiliate? Or are the local affiliates from Southeastern Virginia (which, I assume, would show Eagles-Redskins)?
My real question is ... what are my chances of seeing the Cardinals-Falcons game? And is there any way to "find" the Falcons game online if there is no chance that it will be shown in the OBX? Are there any restaurants/bars in the OBX that might show lots of games?

A few months back, I said to some friends "would't it be great to watch the Steelers in the Superbowl while we are on vacation in New Zealand?" I didn't really expect it to happen given we were losing to the Pat's at the time... now I need to figure out where to watch it. [more inside]

The Acela has wifi, and I'll have my laptop. I will also have my Droid phone. Is there any way for me to watch the game live? Thanks.

Obscure Product Filter: I'm trying to locate a lamp from my childhood. It featured an nondescript Philadelphia Eagles player (kind of in this style
, but three-dimensional) wearing a green uniform. It had to be from the 80s or very early 90s. If possible, I'd like to find somewhere that I could buy it.

American Football rules question: If the quarterback overthrows a pass to a receiver in the end zone and the ball bounces off the field goal post and is then caught by the receiver (the ball never hit the ground nor is the receiver out of bounds). Is the catch fair?

Football (American) strategy question:
You're down 15 and score a TD with about enough time left to kick-off, try to force the other team to punt, then get the ball back with a chance to tie. Why do all teams opt for the extra point rather than the 2-point conversion? [more inside]
