Watch this pretty great sports coverage of the 1972 World Series

Despite the sexist opening (although, when you think about it, is it really any more insulting to women than almost everything ESPN offers on any of its platforms?), look at this coverage:

leisurely paced
unhyped (the great Lefty Grove even throws out the "first ball" from the stands)
a well sung Anthem by the Fifth Dimension
ballplayers clearly un-P.E.D.-ed

Ah, the real boys of summer!

PS: Oh, and I used to LOVE centerfielder Bobby Tolan's batting stance.
