Subject: 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!
