Battle of the Network Stars hosted by Howard Cosell..

Flipping through channels last night, I came across this old series.

For those who have never seen it, most of this series was pre-cable and the stars from the various shows of each network would get together once a year for a network HTH competition.

A lot of perky nipples being shown last night..

Man I always loved me some battle of the network stars

Usually would be summer fare so it was always kinda cheeky and semi stupid

But that was the beauty of it. The worlds greatest sportscaster acting like these dumb kayak competition was Ali-Frazier 3

Great memory but what channel? Haven't ever seen anything other than the first runs

Eta: loved me some kristy mcnicholl, of course she became a lesbian I think

This thread isn't complete without the Gabe Kaplan-Robert Conrad race.

Loving this show on ESPN Classic.

The introductions of the stars by Cosell alone is worth the time and energy to record this.

I went to see LSU play USC in 1984 (85?) and stumbled upon the filming of Battle of the Network Stars on the Sunday following the game at Pepperdine. I saw Howard C. and watched a relay race where Kim "Tootie" Fields blew a big lead and then we left for the beach.
