Atlanta Braves Opening Day 1992 TV Spots (TBS)

Remember when everyone caught “Braves Fever” in 1991 when they went from worst to first in the National League only to heartbreakingly lose to the Minnesota Twins in the World Series? Remember when everyone was “doing The Chop” when Deion Sanders came on board? Remember when TBS provided television coverage for the games with Skip Caray and Don Sutton? Remember rain delay programming featuring The Andy Griffith Show and Sanford and Son?

These are a couple of montages featuring highlights from the Atlanta Braves 1991 “Cinderella Season” teasing the upcoming 1992 opening day on TBS.

TBS Sports: Hawks vs. Bulls TV Spot (circa 1992)

Is it just me or is it a bit of a shame that local TV would resort to selling a telecast based on the merits of the OPPOSING team? I mean, it was Michael Jordan and two-time World Champion Chicago Bulls, but still….

TBS Presents: “10 Days of The Duke”

Remember when TBS started doing these prime-time marathons in the late 1980s? “10 Days of The Duke” celebrating John Wayne, “16 Days of 007” whenever a new James Bond movie came out, “8 Great Hours of Andy” over Thanksgiving. My family and I looked forward to these marathons–even if we couldn’t always get the best reception on our ancient television sets! These eventually led to the postmodern invention of cable networks adopting a single film to show for 24 hours straight on Christmas Day (another Turner invention).

This is a collection of TV spots and bumpers for the John Wayne marathon that debuted in the fall of 1992.
