Celebrating the really, really long career of Jeff Feagles
I should have put this in the "General Football" forumn, but I started it with the "Gamer" perspective so I thought it fit here better.

Giants' punter Jeff Feagles announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday. Ordinarily, the retirement of a punter wouldn't get a lot of coverage here, particularly since he didn't play for the Vikings, but this is a big announcement for one simple reason.
Feagles is the last player from "Tecmo Super Bowl" for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (released in 1991) to retire from the NFL. And, for that, the 8-bit flag should be flying at half-staff in the hearts of twenty and thirty-somethings everywhere.
