i believe this show (ABC) started sometime in the early 60's. i can rememeber as a kid watching it every sat. afternoon. during the winter it was mostly winter (duh) sports and summer time had mostly summer (double duh) sports.
it seemed to build towards a crescendo every fourth year with the olympics.
i don't know when it exactly happened but now i consider sports one of the most boring (except for award shows) events(?) on TV.
baseball is boring, football stinks. golf, (who cares) auto racing has lost it's flair, (the driver's are all yuppie types now, what happened to cale, junior, richard, mario, aj, gordon, parnelli, etc.) tennis? gimme a break. heck even pro(?) wrestling has become a perverts glory. (haystacks calhoun, mountain of a man)
what's this got to do anything? i dunno, i'm feeling a little melencholy this am. i think i'm scared of gettin old!!!!

You didn't mention HOCKEY! or SOCCER! I love both. :) Try those sports. And, the only way to stop the aging process, is to stop aging, and there is only one way to do that, and nobody wants to do THAT! Have a good day :)

high school ball (sports) is still worth watching.

High School sports are very political. From who the son of the coach is to which sport is considered most mocho. In the area I live, the better athletes are those on Intermeral teams. Kids that play because they enjoy the games and respect talent free of biased opinions and favoratism. Half our high schools basketball team just quit for the above reasons. Some say Pro Football players are over paid. I say, try walking with a cane at age 35 after numerous operations with another 40 years of pain to look forward to. Have you seen Joe Namath's face lately?

joe namath was a 400K bonus baby out of college to play pro football yet he was unaccecptable for military service because of his "bad" knees. as for his face, booze.

Hey, If I had to put up with years of constant knee pain I would drink too! Better than getting hooked on pain killer narcs.

Saw Joe Namath on Monday Night football a few weeks ago. The less said the better.

I told you before, you've got to keep your blood sugar at an even level. Here's how it works, your gloucose level rises and you do dumb things of a political nature. It drops down and you become melencoly and uninteresting. What you aught to do 1) change your routine, 2) change your political affiliation, 3) Get yourself a $32.00 brand name coffee pot and some of that hand-picked, by Juan Valdez, columbian mix. 4) don't mess around with anything else from columbia unless she's a green card carrying legal immigrant who is of legal age. Now, do these things and I predict that in no time, you'll be slinging phrases around like, a) Man that coffee is big league, or b) Man, ole G.W.Bush can carry the ball for me anytime, And, c) Man, I scored big time with my new friend from down south. And, after a while, you'll wonder why you allowed yourself to ever be so negative.......gfp

My sentiments exactly! Haven't watched a sports event (except an occational rodeo) in years. I used to have an uncle that was a professional gambler. His best advice to me was to never bet on anything besides rodeo and grade school football. The kids don't know the meaning of profit, and livestock don't take bribes.

I agree with you Steve , sports stink ! I don't understand anyone geting paid for playing a game . Kids play games , and don't get paid and it is a better game . I think all players of all sports should make NOTHING , and should go out and get a real job . They can play sports after working a full eight hour day if they want .

Just think of the industry that has built up around those guys tackling each other on an open field. Must be tens of thousands of jobs that will stay right here in America.

I did read somewhere that the horses and bulls are forming a union though, if they succeed we might seea change in their attitude--
