Bo Jackson

I NEVER Played Tecmo Bowl

... But I Know I Was a BEAST!

If you owned a Nintendo ... then you know Bo Jackson was the single GREATEST player in the history of Tecmo Bowl ... but BJ wouldn't know ... 'cause he's NEVER played the game.

Bo just appeared on SportsCenter to discuss his Bo Bikes Bama charity event ... when anchor Robert Flores brought up Jackson's UNSTOPPABLE digital alter-ego from the NES classic.

Side note -- Seriously, Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson was insane ... fast ... couldn't be tackled ... his speed only matched by digital Lawrence Taylor ... just check out the clip below.



Anyway, when asked about the game ... Bo replied, "To be honest with you, I’ve seen a kid play that game once ... I have never played that game."

He continued, "I still have the ‘Tecmo Bowl’ cassette, in a box somewhere in one of my storage places or in the attic. But I’ve never played the game.”

Bo doesn't know ... in fact, Bo has no idea.

I don't know whats saddest. The fact that I remember playing Tecmo Bowl and I remember lighting up Bo Jackson using Ronnie Lott or the fact that I watched the entire TMZ Tecmo Bowl video!!!!

For the Record, that video clip was actually of Super Tecmo Bowl, the follow up to the Original Tecmo Bowl.... And LT was a beast in the Original, but not as much so in the 2nd version.

FYI - I am pretty sure it was Tecmo Super Bowl that featured Bo Jackson, as the original Tecmo Bowl did not have players rights/permissions.

Don't forget that you had Marcus Allen in the backfield with Bo in Tecmo. Evil HOF backfield.

Wow that brings back memories, Bo was a beast in that game. There was also a long bomb play that I used to use and score just about every time without fail.

I saw him play against the A's before he got hurt. He was awesome, made Mark Mcguire and Jose Canseco lokk like stick figures in thier uniforms. Dude looked like the incredible hulk in a baseball uniform, fast, agile, truly one of the greatest athletes EVER!

Anybody that ever played the game and took the Giants knew that you didn't control LT. You let LT go on his own. He was far better without being controlled. I think I burned through 3 cartridges for Techmo Superbowl. Hey Bo if you have an unopened one send it my way, it's actually worth some money.
