TV didn't wear colored clothes and why everything else was just black and white (as we called it in those days.)

He and my Mother laughed and never answered. Imagine my surprise when I saw the first "color" TV! lol

Miami had a punt return touchdown called back. My dad played baseball at Greenville High with Sterling Smith who made the tackle in the end zone. My dad always spoke fondly of the Orange Bowl victory over Miami.


It was ClemZon back then, too...***

these guys, as he was a freshman in '52 after he got back from Korea and grad in '55. It shows yet another reason why i laugh at the traditionalists who argue that we're orange and white and purple should either go away or be minimal.

John Facenda. They used him on everything in the '60's and '70's. Probably some guy under contract to do all of the newsreel stuff back then.
