ill be the first to admit that i would enjoy the sports stuff much more

but its a very limited horizon for me

since i dont care one flip about anything in sports, except my three teams

braves, packers and badgers

i have lots of this stuff already

and the ones i really would want, probably dont exist

the lombardi era games

and the lombardi movie

lombardi-legend in granite

at least with tv stuff

theres always another one to chase, when the current one is done

I did a few sports trades during the Summer, I got them for me, but also my family because I thought they would get a kick out of seing them. For me I didn't like it as much as I do TV trading because I don't know many of the players and so on. BTW, the AFC Chapionship I am sending you my Uncle went the game and I showed it to him and he remembered so much about it and he hadn't seen it in 30 years. For him it brought back a lot of memories, but for me it was just another game.

Something that really annoyed me about the old games is the time clock missing. The game seemed to drag on because I didn't know how much time was left.

You are calling legendary announcers like Curt Gowdy, Dick Enberg, Jack Buck, Don Criqui, Pat Summerall, Howard Cossel, etc ... boring?

I feel sorry for this younger generation.

To quote Mr Enberg .... Ohhhhh Myyyyy!

Don Criqui was DRY, and Summerall Didn't do CBS games until 79/80, I'm talking about in the mid 70's

Some were more exciting than others, I didn't really learn all there names so I can't tell you which ones I think are less exciting than the others. They all knew what they were talking about, but they seemed to be talking to each other more than talking about the actual games.

wrong my friend

Summerall did color in the early 70's (1970 in fact)

he did play by play as early as '74 and in fact did the Championship game from '74 and '76 before becoming CBS' lead play by play guy in 1978.

Criqui is one of the voice's I identify the NFL with from the 80's, a fixture on NBC broadcasts.

GF, I'm pretty sure Gowdy did the '75 AFC Championship game (I have that game in excellent condition myself) He was one of the most accomplished play by play guys of that era who's talents crossed over to many sports - World Series, Final Four's, The NFL, college football, the olympics.
He truly was one of the legends of broadcasting. He passed away last year

I remember Gowdy from American Sportsman and of course the 72 Olympics at Munich. His call during the Israeli massacre is one of the memorable in all sports. Staring at the camera and uttering "their gone, their all gone". Great voice, never tried to take over. This was the day of the true announcer, not a ex jock looking to make a buck. Way back when in football they had true announcers. Van Patrick in Detroit, Harry Wismer, who became owner of the titans before they changed their name to N.Y. Jets. The Giants had Marty Glickman and him I could have lived without.

Quick story on Summerall. Many moons ago I find myself in a elevator with him, about 1975 and I thank him for giving me one of my two favorite sport moments. One Thompson's homer against the Dodgers and I tell him "I don't know if you rmember on that snowy winter day in Cleveland when we needed a win to make the playoffs, no superbowl then and with seconds remaining, the markers obliterated, you kicked what is called a 50 yard field to give us the game. Snow and wind and you put it through the uprights" He looked at me as I struck up the conversation, smiled and said "I remember it too. I still see the kick. In those days only road games were televised as home games were blacked out till the sell out rule took effect. Everyone heard much radio.
Glickman drove me crazy on radio. "Connerly hands off to Webster, who slashes of left tackle, escapes so and so and moves forward and is finally dragged down" Then he said he picked up 2 yards, figured at least 7 the way he described it.

Harvey:

I think it was Jim McKay who gave that report from the 1972 Olympics.
