Episode Summary

EDIT
Pottstown Revisited
AIRED:
If there is one film that is among Steve Sabol's favorites, it was Pro Football, Pottstown, Pa. Phil Tuckett had asked to shoot a piece on minor-league football and some of its characters. The "short piece" expanded into a 60-minute special. This special two-hour Lost Treasures episode begins with a re-airing of Pro Football, Pottstown, Pa. (a more accurate description can be found at www.movietome.com, keyword "Pottstown"). Then, NFL Films travels back to Pottstown and gets in touch with some of the minor players on this special minor-league team. The program concludes with the Pottstown Firebirds' 30-year reunion.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • At the beginning of the second hour, Steve Sabol says the Pottstown Firebirds lasted only two seasons. The Firebirds were actually established in 1968 and lasted through 1970. SOURCE: www.pottstownfirebirds.com

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (3)

    • The NFL Network also deleted this program's unused footage of Pottstown Firebirds' owner Ed Gruber, who cornered the underwear market.

    • This episode of Lost Treasures has seen the least exposure on the ESPN Networks. Part of it is because it is two hours long. Then there is the relaxing of the censorship in the second hour. More expletives are passed onto the ESPN Networks' airwaves. The version shown on the NFL Network has deleted 80% of these obscenities.

    • The premiere broadcast of this episode was seen on ESPN 2 as "filler" programming to make up for an NHL blackout.
