Just found a TNA in this. The back glass is a little different but it's definitely TNA. At about 51:30 in the movie they have chimes dubbed in while it's being played lol.

This fantasy football show NFL on NBC with Matthew Berry heavily features a Popeye. Kind of a weird choice IMO.

I just noticed that so far no one put this well-known pic of STEVE McQUEEN, playing a 1952 Gottlieb's SKILL POOL, into this toppic...
It's from the episode "HUMAN INTEREST STORY" of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS, aired in 1959.
