Playing a football game at 33 1/3 RPM?
April, 1, 2014

April is a brutal month for football fans. College football and NFL games won't return for another six months. Free agency is mostly over. Even the draft has been pushed back to May this year. What does that leave for a pigskin-starved individual to do on a Sunday afternoon? Well, if you have a record player you're in luck.
On April 19, better known as Record Store Day to the vinyl obsessed, Microfiche Records will offer one of the hundreds of special releases only available on this special day. "RPM Turntable Football - A Two Player Game Played at 33 1/3" is exactly as it sounds -- a vinyl record narrated by Jay Grainer and Barry Dingle who together will call the action using something called "RPM Decagonaphnoic 10 Groove Sound Technology" while you keep score. The first player to 50 points wins.
The Record Store Day website says only 1,000 copies will be made available so finding one may be a game in itself.
