I’m not sure if I was twelve or thirteen but the best gift and the most fun gift I ever received was an electronic single or two player football game back in 1980 or 1981. I played that battery operated football game every single day of Christmas break and for months afterwards. I got to be pretty good at it which made me want to play even more. I don’t remember when I put it down, it could be because I got so good that it eventually lacked any challenge or that I simply moved on to other interests. It stuck out in my mind because it came as a huge surprise to me Christmas morning, I hadn’t asked for it but it intrigued me and once I started, I was hooked.
