WFLD Channel 32 - Chicago Blitz Vs. Tampa Bay Bandits (Promo, 1983)
Here's a promo of an upcoming game between the Chicago Blitz vs. Tampa Bay Bandits of the now-defunct United States Football League (USFL), to air Saturday, April 2nd at 7pm.
From this, we learn that George Allen was the Blitz' head coach and that John Reeves was the Bandits' QB. The play-by-play was by Doug Buffone and Lorn Brown (the latter of whom also handled play-by-play for Chicago White Sox radio broadcasts). (Spoiler / Time-Travelling Gambler Alert: The Blitz would win the game, 42-7.)
Voiceover by Jim Barton.
This promo aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, March 20th 1983.
