Re: Do you remember when your family bought your 1st Color TV....and what brand?

I was 6 or 7 years old. Went from the 19" B & W I'd known my whole life to, I believe, it was a Zenith 27" console with remote, and hidden controls (so cool)....
With the first cartoons I watched, I thought I had died and gone to heaven.... what memories of those wonderful Saturday morning cartoons...

I also remember a few years later at my big brothers house. He had one of those color tv's that needed to warm up, and then the picture gradually faded in.... I had asked if I could watch the Ram game, and he said ok.... so there I was all excited to see my first Ram game of the season. Imagine my surprise when instead of the Blue & White Uni I was expecting to see.... the picture faded in on a close-up of a Ram player jogging to the huddle in this spectacular Blue & Yellow uniform of which I had never seen... WOW! I guess I was about 11 or 12...., but man, I can remember that moment, and that feeling like it was yesterday.
