41. NFL Today intro music, circa 1983 http://bit.ly/P3uOx
42. Monday nights, 7:30pm Ch 9, Redskin Sidelines, with the late, great Glenn Brenner cracking one-liners with Old #9, a special guest from the team and a live studio audience.
43. Grainy video of Riggo jumping rope and running gassers at training camp long after everyone else has left the field.
44. Never will get used to 'Indianapolis Colts' and 'Bmore Ravens' -- its the Baltimore Colts, damn the Irsays.
45. George Allen licking his thumbs in anticipation of yet another running play for a beat-up but tireless Larry Brown.

46. DC 20 used to Play Redskins' Saturday Night (or something like that) where George Starke and other Skins players showed up at a bar (I mean a real, oldschool smokey type of bar) and talk football.

47. The old MNF theme music. "Da-duh-duh-da! Dada-da-dada...." Epic.

48. Howard Cosell. Yeah, I said Howard Cosell. The man was incredibly bombastic and knew next to nothing about football, but he always made those telecasts entertaining. He and Dandy Don had some awesome mini-spats in that booth. Roone Arledge was a marketing genius...
