As with several other videos in our vintage library….we have to apologize for the audio quality of this video….as the problem was imprinted back in 1984…..when it was recorded….however, it is our opinion at ImaSportsphle that our viewers can always turn down the volume…..and still rekindle wonderful memories of the time and event recorded…..and anyway….the sound ain’t that bad.
