ESPN 8-5-17

Post by Patti » Sat Aug 05, 2017 6:02 am

On September 7, 1979, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, an estimated 30,000 viewers tuned in to witness the launch of ESPN. Simultaneously, ESPN debuted its first SportsCenter telecast with anchors Lee Leonard and George Grande. The first words spoken were from Leonard who informed viewers: "If you love sports...if you really love sports, you'll think you've died and gone to sports heaven." The first score Grande announced was Chris Evert's victory over Billie Jean King at the US Open. SportsCenter lasted a half-hour, consisting mainly of videotaped highlights. Following the conclusion of the telecast, the network aired a slow-pitch softball game along with other programming, including wrestling and college soccer.

For this challenge focus on sports...could be a Super Bowl party, cheering on your favorite team, marching in the pep band, the family Thanksgiving football game, kid's sports....anything that makes you think of sports.
