    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Bob Costas: Sorry about what happened Telly.
        Telly Savalas: I don't think I am Howard. I mean I hate to say, I'm a sore loser. The Strategy is still paying off. Now I'd rather play against ABC the weaklings than NBC in the tug-of war.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Telly Savalas complains that a grievous error occurred in the baton race that later cost NBC a 2 second penalty. He, of course, fails to point out that all 3 teams had run out of their lanes which is a disqualification.

      • Ron Howard and Mackenzie Phillips were co-stars in the classic "American Graffiti" (1973) They also starred in the sequel "More American Graffiti" (1979)

      • NBC's Captain Robert Conrad explodes after his team is dropped from first place to second in the running relay, due to a protest by Kojak himself, Telly Savalas. He challenges ABC Captain Gabe Kaplan to run it off in a one-on-one race. Kaplan wins, meaning ABC keeps the first place position. I was rooting for Bob, but I think that quick cigarette he had cost him the race. He took it like a man, but when will people ever learn...
