Battle of the Network Stars

Hard for people who did not grow up in the 70's to understand just how popular the Battle of the Network Stars was. Mental Floss has a nice recap of the "games".

I will also say that Gabe Kaplan beating Robert Conrad in the 100 meter dash "race-off" was one of my favorite moments. Kaplan was a good athlete (very good pick-up basketball player) and he didn't hesitate to accept the challenge from Robert Conrad (who if you watch the clip was sneaking puffs from a butt just prior to the race - it was a different time them).
