My first husband (gag) liked football, and he especially liked the Jets and Joe Namath.
That's not to take anything away from that team...they can't choose their fans
but I always preferred a good book or a good movie to watching football.
Now, basketball, gymnastics, ice skating, or hockey... I'd watch anytime.
Eva, you're probably too young to remember ABC SPORTS...host Jim McKay... the Thrill of Victory, the Agony of Defeat...those were the good old days of sports programs. Somehow they just don't have the same appeal now that they did then. ABC Sports set the standards for Olympic Games coverage, and then NBC got into the bidding wars when they saw how ABC had made the Games so popular with Americans.
Dick Button as the voice behind the Ice Skating Championships...Button had no equal in that arena.
