Quick question: where was the below photograph taken?
A) A high school game in the 1980s; B) The Jaguars-Jets preseason game: C) A contest in which two Hall of Fame quarterbacks are competing?
If you answered C, well, you win a prize. Perhaps you'd enjoy a front-row ticket to the game that almost nobody saw 28 years ago?
H/t to ESPN's Darren Rovell.
Though you can't see them from this angle, this 1985 USFL game pitted the Houston Gamblers vs. the L.A. Express and it featured Jim Kelly (playing for the Gamblers) vs. Steve Young. Here was the AP preview.
As it turns out, it was a pretty decent game that all of, maybe, 1,000 people saw on a gorgeous day at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
‘Tis a pity, because the game was an absolute shootout.
