Durban Sandshark Posted August 14, 2014 Report Share Posted August 14, 2014 At last! At long last! The Los Angeles Summer Olympics 1984 Opening Ceremony is now fully up without having to see just segments and highlights thanks to, who else aptly named SpiritOf84 who recorded it on Knoxville's ABC affiliate WATE 6 TV! Just in time for the 30th anniversary (can you really believe that it's THAT long) All live from ABC with Jim McKay and Peter Jennings (RIP to both) on that Saturday afternoon from Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum--even with the commercials to look back on. Did you even notice that Brooke Shields, Kirk Douglas (in a Seattle Mariners baseball cap) and Linda Evans were also in attendance? Maybe we could see full non-American broadcasts later. Great time to dedicate this to Todd/LA84! The Introduction, Fanfare, Welcome, Reagan's, Samaranch's and Ueberroth's Arrival, and the Star-Spangled Banner. I wonder is this the only time we got the Olympic rings made of balloons. Oh yeah, there's Jet Man Bill Suitor that a certain fictional NCIS(?) character became infatuated with since: It's that marching band again! They're definitely good! After that we get to see the artistic presentation that the marching band formed (continental) America with the pioneer days with manifest destiny going on. Aaron Copeland is all over this: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
