    NBC (ended 1997)
    The first time a football game was ever aired on television was October 1, 1939 when an experimental NBC affiliate aired a game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Brooklyn Dodgers. In 1955 NBC became the third over-the-air national home of the NFL (after ABC and DuMont) when they were the exclusive broadcaster of the Championship Game until 1963. From 1960-1961 select NBC affiliates also aired games involving the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Colts. From 1970-1997 NBC aired all Sunday afternoon games involving AFC teams, before that package moved to CBS with the start of the 1998 season. Football would later return to NBC in 2006, although as a different program: Sunday Night Football.moreless

    WWE Saturday Night's Main Event has returned to NBC this March after a 13-year hiatus. In the mid-1980s through early 1990s, WWE fans would scour the television listings each month - making sure they didn't miss the highly anticipated special that replaced network staple Saturday Night Live on occasion. When Jon Lovitz, Dennis Miller and Dana Carvey weren't performing comedy sketches, WWE Superstars were squaring off in matches that often took on a pay-per-view feel. The show's original theme song was "Obsession" by the band Animotion, but by the time the first run of the series ended in 1992, the music was changed to a generic theme.moreless

    Welcome sports fans, to a new era in televised football. Contracts are up, NBC is trying to replace the legendary MNF with a sharp-looking new SNF and things will not be the way they were before. NBC will be fielding a bus of an analyst (Jerome Bettis), the insightful ex-wide receiver Cris Collinsworth and the imperturbable Bob Costas. It might also be worth mentioning that they will be featuring the tried and true, heavy-hitting commentating power of Al Michaels and John Madden. Throw in the power, speed and strength of the NFL's top teams and Sundays should prove to be an exciting night of big hits, hard falls, and spectacular football.moreless

    The top long-distance triathletes compete at the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, every year for the opportunity to become crowned as the best Ironman-distance athletes in the world. The event was started in 1977 by Judy and John Collins after a discussion with other endurance athletes to determine who is more fit -- open water swimmers, cyclists or runners. The race would combine all three disciplines into a single competition. Three existing races -- the2.4-mile Waikiki Roughwater Swim, the 112-mile Around-O'ahu Bike Race and the 26.2-mile Honolulu Marathon -- were combined to create the first Ironman race on Feb. 18, 1978. Fifteen people showed up in Waikiki, receiving simple instructions on a few sheets of paper. The last page read, "Swim 2.4 miles! Bike 112 miles! Run 26.2 miles! Brag for the rest of your life!" In 1981, the race was moved to Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The low-key race gained worldwide prominence after the 1982 race was televised on ABC's Wide World of Sports. Viewers watched as Julie Moss succumbed to the demands of the race and lost her lead. Her struggle to continue on toward the finish line inspired others to travel to Kona and compete. As the Ironman brand grew to encompass an entire triathlon race series, the Kona race was established as the world championship. The race attracts the top Ironman triathletes from around the world. It also brings in numerous amateur (age-group) competitors who train hard to qualify for the race with other race results. Qualifying for Kona is similar to the prestige of a marathoner qualifying for the Boston Marathon. The field in recent years now numbers almost 1,800 participants, pro and age group. The race is broadcast live on the official Ironman website while the edited highlight program is broadcast on NBC later in the year.moreless
