On this day in 1963, in the Army-Navy football game, instant replay was used for the first time. To keep viewers from being confused, the announcer told them, “This is not live! Army did NOT score again!”
- Today on Football Sundays you can hear announcers yell, “This IS live! The Lions did NOT score again!”
Speaking of scoring… you can “score” your copy of the “The Best of Dick Purtan & Purtan’s People - Vol. 10” CD right now by clicking on either of the blue CD ads on this website! With only 17 shopping days left until Christmas… don’t wait! It’s a great, inexpensive stocking stuffer (Just $19.99!) for yourself or anyone you know who may have actually enjoyed the show!!!
Proceeds benefit two Michigan Military charities which I am very proud to support - especially on this - the 70th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
