Grantland Rice Story - Pgm GRS-33

May 27th, 2010

In this week's installment of "The Grantland Rice Story, a mid-fifties Thesaurus syndicated sports show, Jimmy Powers narrates Rice's thoughts on the influence of television on sports.  The guest on program GRS-33, "TV and Sport", is Asa S. Bushnell, the Commissioner of the Eastern Intercollegiate AA and Director of the NCAA's tv legislative body.  They talk about how the NCAA limits television airings of college games to "save the sport".

Changed a bit since then, hasn't it?
