Robert Conrad shirtless; take that, Vinny Testaverde!

Robert_Conrad.jpgWhy post this clip from the epic tug of war at the 1978 "Battle of the Network Stars?''

Three reasons:

1. Why not?

2. It gives Robert Conrad a chance to show off his shirtless, 43-year-old physique; let's see 43-year-old Vinny Testaverde try that on national TV!

3. Joel Stein, the guy whose name you see embossed on the screen during the clip, went to high school in Edison, N.J., with Newsday baseball columnist Ken Davidoff, as did current Edison mayor Jun Choi, who once inspired racially insensitive remarks from then New Jersey radio personality and current WFAN morning co-host Craig Carton (see post below), for which Carton later apologized.

Thus does a 29-year-old clip of Frank Gifford and Howard Cosell calling a tug of war neatly tie itself back to the present, completing another strand in the circle of life.

Tell Bob that this is better than cheerleaders.

Good Day. Experience is a good teacher, but she send in terrific bills. Help me! There is an urgent need for sites: Bad education online. I found only this - university continuing Education online. There is a wide variety of distance education online learning programs available some online degrees are fake. Unlimited intelligence relative to freee education online. With respect :o, Paulo from East.

Thank you, so-so.
I am from Islands and now study English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Preschools are a great way to enhance the children with the basic learning tools."

With best wishes :-), Farah.
