Pretty soon after this airing Orlando signed with the Nets, and the Bulls got the 6th pick in the 1989 draft as compensation, that pick was used on Stacy King who was traded to the Timberwolves in 1994 for Luc Longly who was traded for the Sun's 16th pick in the 1999 Draft where Ron Artest was selected, Ron Artest was traded in 2002 for Jalen Rose, Jalen Rose was traded in 2003 for Antonio Davis, Davis was traded with Eddy Curry to the Knicks for their picks in 2006 (#2) and 2007 (#9). In 2006 we drafted LaMarcus Aldridge traded him for Tyrus Thomas and Viktor Khryappa, then in 2007 we used their pick to net us Joakim Noah linking them all the way back to the 1981 Draft when the Bulls drafted Orlando. Take that KEVIN BACON! Comment posted by esmooth99 on Saturday, June 7th 2008 at 7:00pm.

Funny they had Orlando wearing that Bulls jersey considering that Chicago had switched to the current design the previous season. Perhaps this was a rerun of a commercial earlier in Woolridge's career. Comment posted by HamptonRoadsTVFan on Wednesday, September 9th 2015 at 9:32am.

Hold the presses - we started getting a difference of opinion in the WMAQ alumni group as to who the VO person actually was. I am trying to sort it all out but it seems likely that it is actually Jerry Mitchell, and not Henry "Hank" Cooke. More details as they become available on these FuzzMem stations, and on FuzzyMemories' Overnight.
Aha, Henry Cooke. How long was he with WMAQ? Ditto for Lorry Young.
As for Lee Hanna - he was brought in by parent network NBC to 'MAQ in 1976 to try to lift the station from last place, after propelling NYC sister station WNBC Channel 4 to the top with its 2-hour "NewsCenter4" newscast. Alas, for a variety of reasons, Mr. Hanna's tenure at WMAQ didn't work out and he was gone by 1978. Ron Powers, in the 1980 edition of his book "The Newscasters: The News Business As Show Business," had a section about Mr. Hanna's ill-fated WMAQ foray in his chapter of the ups and downs of WNBC's "starship newscast."
For some unexplained reason I received the Mork and Mindy game from some program that was giving all the kids toys for Christmas because so many apparently were poor (we weren't so I don't know why they included all kids). Anyway it was a card game and one of the creatures on the card was called oopadoo and we would call one of our dogs that.
