Origins of First and Ten

Back in the day, way back, I’m talking ESPN 2K5 days. That’s like 2004. I was working at MCI WorldCom. There were a bunch of us guys with Xboxes. We played some games. Halo, TopSpin, and football. We had LAN parties. We had Xbox Live. And we had an online league for football. We called, or rather, I named it, First and Ten. It went on for two seasons. There was a trophy and everything. I loved it. I’ve never been able to get a group of guys together like that since. Ah, the good old days.
