'82 Orange Bowl: darn good presentation

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I purchased this release of the '82 Orange Bowl because not only was I interested in seeing Clemson winning the Orange Bowl and becoming national champions, but also because I'm a fan of the way that college football and other sports used to be covered: simple, spare, and without all the annoying graphics and announcers that characterize today's broadcasts. NBC's presentation on 1/1/82 (two days before my 1st birthday) exemplifies why I feel the way I do, especially in that NBC then had the Proud N, which was (and still is, in my opinion) one of the most outstanding logos that a television network could ever have. Don Criqui and John Brodie also lent a lot to the broadcast, as did Bob Trumpy; the frequent visits to the coaches' boxes were very entertaining as well, because you could see and hear the strategy being figured out.
In short, this is a very good product for the money if you feel as I do that sports on television should go back to being as simply presented as this was on NBC, New Year's Day 1982."
