Before video games and the likes of John Madden and Tecmo Bowl captured the fervor of young football fans everywhere, there was that familiar buzz.
Chris LeMay has spent his life getting to know everything there is about the unmistakable rattle that comes with the classic Electric Football Game.
Chris is the founder of the Electric Football Museum, working with curations that have been displayed everywhere from the Football Hall of Fame to the Smithsonian and beyond.
