George Plimpton's Video Falconry

You know George Plimpton, right? Founder of The Paris Review, deputy ambassador to the UN, noted sportswriter, all-around polymath. He was a pretty cool cat.

Anyway, one of John Hodgman’s offhand quips has come to life in the form of George Plimpton’s Video Falconry, an self-explanatory imitation ColecoVision game rendered in Flash.
