SUPER BOWL III FLASHBACK – GAME INTRODUCTION (VIDEO CLIP)
Posted by Andrew Roman on January 24, 2010
This is the second of four clips I am sharing of the original NBC broadcast of the Super Bowl game forty-one years ago between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Jets.
This is how the actual game broadcast began, following the thirty-minute pregame show.
This one showcases the state of the art graphics and the sponsorship billboard (yes, that means cigarette advertisers). It also features play-by-play man Curt Gowdy talking a bit about Joe Namth’s famous guarantee of victory over the mighty Colts.
We’ve come a long way in forty-one years.
The clip is 2 minutes 45 seconds long.
Fascinating to be sure.
