Our guy Kris "Karl Applecherry" Atteberry tweeted about this earlier today, and then he texted us repeatedly until we watched it. It was worth the pestering. We won't ruin all the suspense and drama, but we will say this about a 20 minute video (note -- it doesn't start until about 45 seconds in, so keep watching) from a 1976 Twins/White Sox game:

*The Twins are rocking their old powder blues.

*Innings move so much faster than they used to.

*There is a Hamm's beer commercial.

*Harry Caray does his postgame standup with an open beer bottle on his desk and calls a pitcher a "handsome youngster."

Full synopsis here.
