A great ESPN special on TV tonight – about the U.S.F.L. – the United States Football League. That “other” league from way back in the 1980s… the “spring time” football league. Remember it? Not up to NFL standards – even with Hershal Walker, Doug Flutie, Steve Young, Sam Mills, Jim Kelly? Coaches like Jim Mora and Steve Spurrier? Owners including Burt Reynolds? That league that Donald Trump almost single-handedly killed?
Good times when there was an alternative.
