PostSubject: Battle of the Network Stars- ESPN Classic!   Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:52 pm

Now I am showing my age...but do you guys remember 'Battle of the Network Stars?' When I was a kid, they would show that twice a year! I used to love watching that...the stars from the then "3" major networks competing in many Athletic sports. For you young 'uns, the 3 major networks at the time were ABC, CBS, & NBC. Howard Cosell used to host it. I never knew which team to root for! Anyway, I saw they were showing that this past Monday on ESPN classic, so I dvr'd it. I've seen bits & pieces of it...it was from November '83. So many people there...including a very young Heather Locklear! I also hear they will be airing these every Monday night for a while. I was having too much fun watching this.

This show should come back. Then again, I can't imagine what "stars" they can bring for this...there would probably be quite a bit of reality stars competing. Also, there would be a lot more networks added (Fox, CW, some cable channels).

If you have ESPN classic, check it out! It will blow you away! Smile

Oh! I'll have to check out if I have that channel!
I remember buying a video from someone on Ebay who had recorded the episode where Melissa Gilbert appeared. I still have it somewhere.

Here is a clip of her race against Kristie



It WOULD be cool if they were to do this with all the celebrities now. I would definitely watch! Thumbsup

Jules, I made the sacrifice of watching the video just so I could let you know if that was the same one. Yep - Kristy beat her BIG TIME.

Awww, thanks Lisa! That was so sweet! laugh3

Poor Melissa...then again, in a way, I'm not surprised! Kristy looked a lot more athletic.
