  Remember this football hero on the right?                                 Of course that's convicted thief of his own possessions OJ, and that image is from his star turn in HBO's classic pre- Ballers series 1st and Ten. Let's not even go there. Instead we will go there with another cancelled celeb - Roseanne. She happens to have played some football herself. Ever heard of Backfield in Motion ? Roseanne and her teenage son played by Johnny Galecki (was he cancelled? Who can keep up) move to a small town where football reigns supreme. When Roseanne's son joins the JV team, she organizes a mothers vs. sons football game. Hilarity ensues. Especially because, you guessed it, Tom Arnold has a lead role as well! Roseanne and Tom at it again! Up for some classic TheArchive football hijinks before the big game ? Line up for Backfield in Motion only on TheArchive .

Super Bowl Sunday or HBO's 1st & Ten?

     This post was originally published on (9/7/21) and updated on (2/10/22) . Why not both? With the Rams favored to handily overtake the Bengals, why not get into some classic football hijinks from TheArchive ? Super Bowl Sunday is a lot of fun, especially as we anticipate the sheer insanity of Los Angelenos as they celebrate the victory. So keep the fun going with the 1980s HBO throwback land O.J. Simpson starrer, 1st & Ten . However the Rams-Bengals matchup plays out, there’s 80 episodes of OJ slicing and dicing his way through jokes and jocks. So punt whatever else your binging and get down with 1st & Ten ! HBO has long been ahead of its time featuring the antics of American Football on and off the field. Before Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson’s star turn in HBO’s Ballers or the hard-hitting docuseries Hard Knocks , 1st & Ten had its own run with the sport and its players. Funny enough, if you're a fan of Apple’s Ted Lasso , you may also recognize
