i think one of the elements of the sports + tv experience that has changed the most for me has been the availability of replay. i love it, esp since i miss the obvious, big moments so often.

plus, it officially started being used in 1986, which was a year for many great things... ya know, like me.

Ha! That's my high-school graduation year. Why do you say that replay started in 1986? I remember them having it when I first started watching sports, around 1974. Maybe you mean something different.

ok... i'm semi-off... i think instant replay was officially adopted to the nfl in 1986... but was first introduced in canada in 1955... in my 2 minutes of online research there are iffy factoids about when it entered basketball... but to tell the truth, it's just one of the random facts that i remember from a book someone gave me for my birthday a few years ago... the Remember When series... and there is one for each year that notes gas prices... college tuition... important events... etc.
anyway... i just remember something about instant replay being included in 'my' book...

i do agree tho that sports of yesterday do have an ancient, and i like your term, innocent feeling about them... they just feel so... naked... raw... it's cute.
