For all of you who have thrown a felt football

There are reports that Norman Sas, the man who invented electric football, has passed away.

As kids, we had a couple of these in our house; and you just haven't lived until you've tried to throw a Hail Mary with a felt football, a plastic quarterback, and a receiver that you could time with an hour glass.

Not familiar with electric football, you say?  Take a gander, here.
