I was only a toddler for the last few years of this show, so I don't remember it. But after watching episodes of this show on ESPN Classic and then later acquiring episodes from a tape trader, I found it quite interesting. I like watching highlight shows and old broadcasts from the 70's because I missed them. It is cool to see how it was before ESPN helped saturate the media with sports. The hosts, Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier, did pretty well but seemed really laid-back and unemotional. That tandem was a staple on TWIPF and CBS broadcasts back then. This was in the days before Madden was on CBS. I remember a successor to this show that they had on Sunday morning in the 80's called "NFL Review and Preview". It was very similar to TWIPF. Does anyone know where you can get copies of that show? I would love to see those again. Anyone with copies can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
