Cool clip Fuzzy thanks for posting. More baseball clips please. As we all know Marla Collins would go on to bigger and better things.

And to think that a mere 5 wins and 14 losses later, Lee Elia would give the world one of the greatest soliloquies in modern history.

That is one beat up looking mic flag in this report.

Ah yes...Chet Coppock. Haven't heard that name in years.

Here's the infamous tirade with Lee Elia:

This was 74th of the 101 damnations the Cubs have gone through.

What about the White Sox?

Does Chet Coppock look like David Letterman's long-lost twin or what??

The ChiSox did not win the division championship until a year later.

$50,000 a day? lol No, that's $50,000 a year for the next 20 years until 2002 for a total of $1 Million.

Found this photo on a MySpace page of a band called "Passion" playing at Saints & Sinners:

The other big question: Which station produced this ad? If WBBM, then its cuts from one slide to another differed significantly from the clunky "fade-out--fade-in" transitions for which New York sister WCBS Channel 2 was famous for decades, from the '50's well to the '80's. But then, practically every Chicago station, I.I.N.M., had RCA TK-27 film chains through which we all saw these slides (and films), and a few by this time may've even gotten the newer TK-28's.

Wow, I want to know what the Intergalatic Robot Show was!

I don't know about the first incarnation of Temptations but during the second go round it was a lesbian bar.

Via the Googles:

Put'n On The Ritz - Best guess is that it eventually became a place called Cafe 22 (the addresses match based on a newspaper article), and was at one point the Lombard Beef n' Barrel. I gave up trying to figure out where the eff this place was.

Inn and Around - Became a nightclub called Temptations, changed names to "Come Back Inn Sports Bar & Grill", then went back to Temptations before closing in 2012. Yelp says there was also a club called Club VIP there at some point.

Saints & Sinners - Apparently next to a cemetery, how lovely. Now housing.

Erik the Red - Now an Irish pub called Blackthorn Pub.

Tovia Club - Now called the Chicago 21 Club. Most definitely no sign of 2-million dollar anything here.

The Vineyard - Looks like the whole shopping center was given a makeover at some point, so it sure as hell ain't there now.

Ships Rail Lounge - Looks like there was some legal bankruptcy mess over the Dolton Lodge; it eventually became the Dorchester Senior Center which, quite honestly, looks like the most depressing senior center ever.

From what I've read, NYC rights to "Her Twelve Men" were held on and off by WOR Channel 9 for years.

Ok, I can do that. :-)

I would love to see the Her Twelve Men bumper art card as a cover photo on the Facebook page. My research says WBBM first showed the film in 1973, so the art card probably is from that date.

Mentioning stuff that Fuzzy purposely tried to edit out: That's a Bozo no-no. ;-)

Seriously though, you're right and I will fix the clip to remove that. I don't like stuff that distracts from the main event. How do you think the poor Starbeat commercial feels when the only comment left about it refers to the .002 second flash of something unrelated at the end. Boo-hoo. ;-)

At the end on the clip, I saw a title card of the 1954 movie called "Her Twelve Men" starring Greer Garson. I might be wrong, but that movie's title card comes from The Late Show on channel 2.
