If you watch it all the way through, they get to a segment concerning the "Swine Flu" epidemic of 1977. Interesting

The instant news world we live in now days creates a certain frenzied, out of control enviroment.

Things seemed alot more relaxed back then.

Don "The Weasel" Fortune.
He was the Kevin Keitzman of the 1970s.
I saw Don in a bar in Canton, Ohio when Len Dawson went into the Pro Football HOF.
Then ten years later I saw him in a bar in Albany, NY, when George Brett went into the Baseball HOF. That's the only two times I've met him in person.

I didn't bother watching sports on TV back then (except Sunday night after the Chiefs game). But I poured over the sports page. I'd spend a half an hour on the box scores of the NFL and MLB games.

What is even funnier is that back then, the only highlights you saw were on Monday Night Football. No highlights Sunday Night. No ESPN. Just 5 minutes of highlights at halftime of MNF. It was like gold. And if they failed to show highlights after a rare Chief win, it ruined the whole night.

I'd take that over listening to boo-ya and all the bullshit on ESPN and Fox Sports and pretty much any of the other sports coverage today. Simple works for me. And I miss Mel Allen on This Week In Baseball. That was good stuff.

As far as the set and clothing styles go, yeah they look cheesey now and we laugh... just like our kids and grandkids will do when they look at the way we do things now in years.

This. Absoulutely this.

It's amazing how no one ever missed Howard Cosell's halftime. Hell, even if you weren't into the game, you wouldn't miss the halftime. God, that seems like a million years ago...........:sulk:

1977. I got all my sports information from the 46 games I attended at Royals Stadium that year. 102-60. Unbelievable season. Unforgettable summer. Crushing October.

Those were the days, like cdcox, spent a lot of time reading the sports section. Always watched the 10pm sports, hardly ever missed it.

Also, it was about that time we got cable and ESPN, when it was actually fun to watch. Oh for the days of Austrailian rules football!

Back in the early 60's there was only one baseball game on TV each week. It was called "The game of the week" I think. Dizzy Dean was the play by play guy and I forget who his partner was. Anybody know?

That would be Kathy Lee Gifford, Kathy Lee Johnson at the time.

I loved that halftime show with the highlights. It was a treasure to get to see all of the teams in a ten-minute span.

There were times when the Chiefs game wasn't shown where I lived, and then the news would just say, "Bills 21, Chiefs 17", and that was it. So I had to wait for the paper the next morning to try to figure out what happened. It was agonizing. I remember getting incredibly frustrated when the news wouldn't show any highlights of the game.

I remember Ned Reynolds of the Springfield News shaking his head and saying, "Well, it was another bad day for the Chiefs", and wishing he'd shut up.

Chiefs coverage really sucked out here in Cal, and that was my only hope, that, and a Brent Musberger update in the middle of the 49ers games.

Don't remember that era. I was raised in the era of Curt Gowdy doing play by play and Tony Kubek doing the color portion. That was amended to Joe Garagioloa and Tony K in the mid 70's.

Great days of baseball.
