The game was unexpectedly awful, so I'm quite happy to focus on the commercials this year!  Did you catch all the '80s characters in this ad?

Here's who I see:

Mary Lou Retton, Olympic gold medalist

John Ratzenberger, aka Cliff Clavin from "Cheers"

Hulk Hogan, WWF wrestler

Sgt. Slaughter, WWF wrestler



Erik Estrada, aka Ponch from "CHIPS"

Dee Snider from Twisted Sister


Jason Voorhees, "Friday the 13th"

Chucky, "Child's Play"

Teen Wolf

The California Raisins

Slim Goodbody (the guy in the "here's what your insides look like" suit)

Kid, Kid 'n Play ... wait, upon further review, that's Play handing Kid the computer monitor -- so they're both in there

Someone dressed like Madonna

Bubo, the robot owl from "Clash of the Titans"

And Slimer from "Ghostbusters"


Thank you, Radio Shack, for having my childhood burst through the door and carry your store off in the Delorean from "Back to the Future"!
