Heidi Game Debacle
What does a little girl in braids who lives in the Swiss Alps have to do with football? Well on November 17, 1968, she proved to have quite an impact on one particular NFL game. When fans came back from a commercial break to watch the end of a game that was running long, they instead found Heidi in her movie starting at it’s previously scheduled time. That programming choice changed how football is watched to this very day.
