WSNS Channel 44 - NHL Hockey - Blackhawks Vs. Flyers (Opening, 1978)
Here's something pretty rare - the oldest TV-44 material yet found! The opening for an NHL Hockey matchup between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Philadelphia Flyers.
It starts out during a pre-show commercial break (some interference for the first couple minutes). Includes:
Roper Pilotless gas ranges (Available at Goldblatt Bros. "Home Centers") (only half of the commercial intact)

WSNS-TV 44 Chicago "Hockey" slide with introduction voiceover by Mal Wyman.
Opening sequence and sponsorship slides for Chicago Blackhawks hockey (music is "Are You Man Enough?" by The Four Tops) (opening voiceover by Mal Wyman - sounding a bit different)

Commercial: American Airlines - "Doing what we do best."
Commercial: Budweiser - "Monument Valley" (voiceover by Ed McMahon)
Andy McWilliams introduces Lou Angotti, (love those TV-44 blazers!) his co-host, and talks some pre-game stuff.
