For all my casino cash

In the giving spirit of the holiday season I'll award all of my casino cash to the first person who can tell me which TWO teams played in the first televised pro football game.

Rules...
1. No google or other search engine can be used... don't be a pussy.
2. My decision is final and binding. If you think you have the correct answer but it doesn't match mine, which is the real one, you're shit out of luck and I don't care how butthurt you are. I also don't care about your so-called proof.
3. Clay can't win. If Clay posts the correct answer first the prize will go to the next person to post it.

Hints...
1. One of the teams still exists today in the NFL
2. Skip Walz was the first tv play-by-play commentator
3. It reached approximately 500 homes.

I WILL tell you if you have one of the two teams right but no award will be given until one poster has both teams correct.

Go casino cash whores!

Inmem is the winner... Philadelphia Eagles vs. Brooklyn Dodgers

The 1930s and the First Televised Game


Ebbets Field Hosts Football History

The now-essential relationship between pro football and television actually began on October 22, 1939. That’s when the National Broadcasting Company earned a spot in pro football history by becoming the first network to televise a pro football game.


Skip Walz

A meager crowd of 13,050 were on hand at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field on that now-historic day when the Philadelphia Eagles fell to Brooklyn’s Dodgers 23-14. The game included play by three future Hall of Famers - quarterback Ace Parker and tackle Bruiser Kinard for the Dodgers and end Bill Hewitt for the Eagles.

Five hundred-or-so fortunate New Yorkers who owned television sets witnessed the game in the comfort of their own homes, over NBC’s experimental station W2XBS. Many others saw the telecast on monitors while visiting the RCA Pavilion at the World’s Fair in New York where it was scheduled as a special event.

According to Allen (Skip) Walz, the NBC play-by-play announcer, only eight people were needed for the telecast. Walz had none of the visual aids -monitors, screens or spotters - used today, and there were just two iconoscope cameras. One was located in the box seats on the 40-yard line and the other was in the stadium’s mezzanine section.

"I’d sit with my chin on the rail in the mezzanine, and the camera was over my shoulder," remembered Walz. "I did my own spotting, and when the play moved up and down the field, on punts or kickoffs, I’d point to tell the cameraman what I’d be talking about."

The television log records of that day say that the game began at 2:30 p.m. and ran for exactly two hours, thirty-three minutes and ten seconds. By comparison today’s games run almost three full hours. Of course there were no commercial interruptions during the 1939 game. There were, however, interruptions of another sort.

"It was a cloudy day, when the sun crept behind the stadium there wasn’t enough light for the cameras," according to Walz. "The picture would get darker and darker, and eventually it would go completely blank, and we’d revert to a radio broadcast." Such an occurrence would create a furor today, but in 1939 it was simply technology at its best.

For some reason I'll always remember the Brooklyn Dodgers, we had a sports Trivial Pursuit game and that was actually a question.

I get bears and eagles mixed up. Just threw up a Hail Mary.

You were on the right track. You had half the answer a couple of times.
