Awesome Old Commercial of the Week: The Sports Illustrated football phone

When I was a young teenager, my uncle used to get me a subscription to Sports Illustrated every Christmas.  For the record, I have no complaints.  It was a great gift.  But, year after year I kept hoping the football phone would show up in my mailbox as well.

Sadly, it never did.  I wondered, was he keeping them all?  Did he secretly have football phones stashed throughout his house?

I'm guessing the offer was for first-time subscribers only, so my continually renewed subscription didn't qualify.  SI really should've mention that in the ad though, because I couldn't have been the only extremely disappointed football phone-less kid out there...
