Default Historic Sox videos on YouTube

I don't know how long they'll be up, but there are some interesting old videos on YouTube:

Extended clips of a couple of 1970 White Sox-Red Sox games at Fenway Park. Audio from the Red Sox announcers. Luis Aparicio, Carlos May, and Buddy Bradford were in the lineup, with Bart Johnson pitching the first game. The Sox won the second game 22-13, as Walt "No Neck" Williams went 5 for 5 and Bill Melton drove in 4 runs.

Part of the 1972 All-Star Game with an at-bat by Dick Allen and a shot of Wilbur Wood warming up in the bullpen.

1977 opening day vs. Toronto -- the first game in the history of the Blue Jays franchise. Richie Zisk homers in his first White Sox at-bat. (Blue Jays announcers.)

I remember this one (as covered by TWIB at 14:22), Lamarr Johnson sings the national anthem, then gets the only three Sox hits of the game -- two of them homers -- as the Sox beat the A's 2-1 and move into first place. June 19, 1977.

One of the games that the Sox won ugly in 1983, as seen on Sportsvision with Joe McConnell and Early Wynn. And one they blew earlier in the season with McConnell and Ken Wilson on the call. (Where were Don Drysdale and Hawk during those games?)
