NFL Films: 30 years ago in Atlanta

The year was 1991.  The Berlin Wall had fallen two years ealier; the Oscar winners from that spring included Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Bates, Jeremy Irons, and Dances with Wolves among others; Mariah Carey‘s Emotions album was released that fall; and Desert Storm was making news headlines.*

Such is all the prologue you need for what 1991 was like.  Just sit back and enjoy this NFL Films production.

Part of me wishes that I had watched more Atlanta football back in the day so that I could have relished all of that end zone celebration.  Alas.

*I was in fourth grade.  I remember the teacher bringing in a TV to the classroom for us to watch the news.  I didn’t understand the significance if what was happening, but I do remember many of my classmates began to worry about their fathers, who were in the military.
