Here's a blast from the past: Phil Hartman (you might remember him from such shows as The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live and NewsRadio) in a commercial for "Ice Hockey," a 1981 video game for the Atari system.

Look at those graphics! You really think you're ready for all that?

Video games have come a long way from the early days. Still, I kind of want to play this one. If it has a season mode, it may even be a better experience than NHL 15!

This week, a Hartman biography by Mike Thomas, titled: "You Might Remember Me: The Life and Times of Phil Hartman" became available. Hartman was fatally shot by his third wife in 1998.
