would you be talking about this bad boy?

That's it! Only my set had hand painted players. Oh well, vintage toys is not a hobby I need to add to my budget.

Here's what I did with the vinyl I didn't end up using ---- this is the back side. It's not like I was going to throw them in the trash or anything!

I'll have all pictures posted tonight --- just painted handle and it's drying....

Cheers !

I immediately thought of the old vibrating football game of my youth. However, I live in a football town (college) and in one of the shops I saw a set of larger plastic football players, molded in appropriate team colors. They would probably be about the right scale for your lid, and I'll bet you could find Cowboys and Dolphins themes. If I walk by that store again, I'll try to get the manufacturer's name.

EDIT: Actually, I googled it because it was bugging me: the company is called "Kaske Kids." They make several college teams, and a few pro teams, and then some generic colors. They have Dallas, but not Miami. The Dallas set comes with... wait for it... the Stealers. Here's a link so you can see what I'm talking about:

Kaskey Kids Kaskeykids Black/Gold Vs Blue/White Football Guys: Compare Prices, View Price History and Read Reviews at Nextag

Isn't it funny on this site how some guy's obsession can become our own? I just spent 20 minutes looking for Miami Dolphin action figures.

Reason: Update:

Life happens.........

Get the CO2 bottle mounted, chain it up for safety, install a basket for mugs and small stuff, and it doesn't cool........

Compressor fired right up, sounds like it's running just fine, but none of the coolant lines get cold.

It could always be worse..........

Stay tuned and have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Update: Having a hard time trying to locate a compressor --- I know..... should have plugged it in before all the money was spent, but you know about water under the bridge! I have an A/C person coming out on the 14th to have a look --- Of course we are hoping it's just out of freon, but I wanted to have a compressor here just in case... Got any ideas where I can find one?
