About a year and a half ago, I wrote about how I had made a vow that I would not replace our old TV with a new flat screen TV until it died.
Well, I broke my vow.
The old TV was a 32″ Toshiba tube TV. I purchased it in early 1997 for around $800 from Best Buy. At the time, I had been out of college for just under a year, and this was a great TV for my roommate and I. Pretty much everybody else in our age group was sitting at a 27″ or lower.
We enjoyed the heck out of that TV, and our apartment was the de facto hangout place for our friends. Not just because of the TV, but it made watching movies, watching TV, and most importantly, playing video games, a total blast. We played a lot of Madden football (Madden ’98!) and NBA Live ’97. Lots of great times!
