Let’s Go to the Videotape

When I was in my 20s and living in New York, I could not get enough sports on television. This was very early in the life of cable television and ESPN. Many places didn/t have cable available, and SportsCenter in those days was a microcosm of what it is today. So, I got my sports from radio talk shows and the 11 o/clock news. I loved watching the highlights, and CBS at the time had a sports reporter by the name of Warner Wolf who always cried, “Let/s go to the videotape.”
