Currently, CSN Chicago is running and old Cubs game against the Philadelphia Phillies from (I think) 1987. Harry Caray and Steve Stone are calling the game. I guess they are broadcasting this in honor of Andre Dawson going in the Hall of Fame this weekend.

If they showed the Eric Show game, I'd record it.

Nice to see the Phillies had certifiable red-asses like Elia and Juan Samuel at the time.

And there's Tom Hume, the guy who taught Mark Prior how to pitch.

I wish there was a way to watch highlights like that and many other memorable moments. I'd love to watch him nail Dawson in the face.

Show was a complete turd. Are you suggesting that just because Dawson was a star Cub player that he deserved to get beaned in the face?

Definitley 1987...Steve Stone has a mullet and two girls in the stands have banana clips in thier moussed hair.

I also spotted several Coca-Cola and Benetton shirts in the stands too.

I didn't enjoy the beaning so much as watching Dawson chase Show into rightfield after he finally woke up. That was an outstanding moment.

Never suggested that at all. He wasn't hurt in the end, so looking back at it, it was incredibly entertaining.

NO way that was Harry broadcasting. He had a stroke that year.

My preview channel showed it was from August 1, 1987.

Ah, the good ol' days. Good times. :cool:

Even if you hate the Cubs, you sitll have to appreciate Dawson. You see this guy and then look at Sammy. What a shame.

(Kudos to the Red Baron also).

Exactly. Andre Dawson is my favorite Cubs player of all time. Nothing but mad respect for him.

It was funny seeing some of those old names.

Also, odd to see no advertising plastered all over the stadium, and the lack of rooftop patios.

It was Harry, he bounced back quickly from the stroke.

He was there; during the game, Harry appeared on camera with Miss America.

Agreed. I loved Dawson growing up and I very excited about him going to the hall.

Dewayne Staats did play-by-play during the middle three innings with Stone. Harry was there for the first three and last three innings.

Way too much Cubbie love here.

As much as I despise the current fanbase and the what the organization has turned into, I have much softer feelings for some of the 1980s northside teams.

Remember, this was before the first night game was played, so all home games were televised on Channel 9 during the day throughout the summer. In grade school and early high school it was routine to have the Cubs games on during the day before watching the Sox at night. I didn't necessarily root for the Cubs, but I absolutely followed them (it was hard not to, as there wasn't necessarily as many choices back then on tv, and you certainly weren't making a choice between the two Chicago teams since they almost always played at different times).

The other aspect was that the Cubs/Sox rivalry wasn't as intense then as it is now. There was no interleague play (this seemed inconceivable at the time), the anti-Sox media bias by the Tribune outlets hadn't quite surfaced yet, the Cubs fanbase seemed palatable at the time, Harry was fun to watch/listen to, and the Cubs in general were harmless viewing for, at the time, a kid who couldn't get enough baseball.

For the record, my comment about the "good ol' days" was just a reference to my life in general at the time (I was 16), and really had nothing to do with the Cubs per se.

But I can't speak for anyone else. :D:

Here's another fun Dawson related video. It's got everything; bats tossed, ejections, a certain favorite umpire, garbage, the white sox, and a joey gladstone look alike! Enjoy! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAKkHxkkCyA&feature=related)

Silky "D" Dan Roan! Great video. Eric Gregg almost got decapitated by the Hawk's third round of bats.

By the way, glad to see the Tribune media engine was in full force in 1991. That sportscast was 5:15 long, and he didn't get to the Sox until 4:19 into the clip. The Sox highlights ended at 4:40.

This was the first year for the new stadium. Seemed like an electric atmosphere at New Comiskey. I wish I was old enough to appreciate the excitement around that team in the very early 90's.

No kidding. I mean, I know the whole Dawson spectacle was a big deal, but 21 seconds of Sox ? Checking the baseball almanac, that 3-2 win over Toronto got them to 50-42, while that Cubs win over the Reds shot them up to 45-48, only games under .500.

Glad to see some things never change, and the inhabitants of the bleachers at the Urinal threw all kinds of **** out onto the field back in 1991 too.

That's a shock that he would be in the middle of it. And Lou was managing the Reds then.

Was this when Harry would still do double-duty by moving to the radio during the middle innings?
