Classic TV Friday: August 2010 Archives

Robert Urich Had Excellent Control - 1979

| | Comments (4)

Yeah, so this is a pretty loose definition of "baseball video" but screw it. Here are the three reasons why I posted it:

1. Classic TV Friday Doesn't play by your rules.

B. Robert Urich went to Florida State.

iii. You get to see Daisy Duke dropped in a dunk tank.

Deal with it. Watch it. Wish you were born 30 years earlier. Please to enjoy.

Pittsburgh Hosts The First World Series Night Game - 1971

| | Comments (5)
In honor of tomorrow's #HEIST I searched YouTube for happy Pirates memories. This did not take very long. But the one I found is Classic TV Friday material all the way. It's the pregame for Game 4 of the 1971 World Series, aka the first ever WS night game. It includes some of my favorite things: funky intro music, funky Joe Garagiola suits, Curt Gowdy, Willie Stargell and Roberto Clemente. Can you imagine how many days of school/work you'd miss nowadays if they still had the playoff games during the day? Remember this video next time you complain about Fox keeping you up until midnight you provincial doofus. Please to enjoy.
