What did Andrew Salciunas find in the vault today? He pulled out audio from the first ever Red Zone broadcast, brought up bad memories of the World Series being canceled, played Bo Jackson’s first-ever homerun, and more. Here was the playlist from today’s visit to the vault.
First Ever Red Zone Broadcast
Andrew forgot this one in the vault yesterday, so he pulled it out today. Yesterday marked the anniversary of the first-ever Red Zone broadcast. Red Zone premiered on September 13th, 2009. And now so many fans join Scott Hanson as he brings you through every NFL game and every scoring chance. Anthony is not a big fan of it. But he still admits it changed the way people watch Football. And to honor the occasion, Andrew pulled the audio from that first broadcast out of the Vault.
World Series Canceled in 1994
Today in 1994 Bud Selig announced there would be no World Series because of the strike-shortened season. It is not a happy memory, but it is one that everyone remembers nonetheless. The 1994 season never saw an end. And to mark the sad memory, Andrew pulled some audio from Bud Selig’s press conference, where he tried to say it wasn’t about greedy owners, out of the Vault.
Bo Jackson’s First Home Run
On this day, Bo Jackson hit his first-ever homerun. Bo is known as one of the most athletic human beings who ever lived, period. He played two-sport at a fairly high level. And in 1986 he hit his first home run as a professional baseball player. So Andrew grabbed the audio of that first home run out of the vault.
Marshall Faulk Breaks an NCAA rushing record
At this time in history, Marshall Faulk broke the single-game NCAA record for rushing yards as a freshman. Since that time several players have gone on to break the record Faulk set. Andrew found the audio of when he broke that record in the vault and played it for us today.
Happy Birthday Larry Brown
It is also Larry Brown’s Birthday. Best known here as the Sixers coach in the Allen Iverson era. Brown and AI always had a slightly contentious relationship. brown could be tough on AI. But despite the occasional drama, AI did seem to appreciate him. Andrew grabbed some audio of AI praising his coach from the vault to honor the legendary Sixers coach.
