Ran across this and it was very nostalgic for me. It brought back memories of when I first started watching the NFL in the mid 60's. Back then I really got excited when that opening theme song began playing. I rather liked that marching band type tune at the time.

As an added bonus, here is a recap of the 1967 season, which is the season when the Saints entered the NFL.

I love me some highlights of the "old NFL," so I do enjoy seeing this. Much of that era was before I came of age, and I came of age when the NFL slowly became more about merchandising than football. The theme song that I most remember would be the late '70s/early '80's NFL Today theme. Then Musberger says, "Well, the Saints got their butts beat again this week. Jimmy says Bum's back on the hot seat..." :p

And I like this line from the 1967 NFL highlight video: "The Coastal Division was a paradox. On one hand, you had the two best teams, record-wise, in the league. On the other hand was Atlanta." :p

I'm sad to say that I am old enough to remember that music.
But there has always been a place in my heart for those old NFL Films music scores. This is one I remember humming as a kid...

Yes. Don Criqui did a lot of Saints games in the early years .

Fall of 1970... I was a Freshman at Brother Martin High (...2nd school year of its existence).

Man... do I feel like a dinosaur!

Yes, he called Tom Dempsey's 63 yard kick for the TV broadcast. You could even hear him chuckle a bit before the snap... but seconds later to exclaim while the ball was in the air heading for the goalposts, "I don't believe this!" :grin:

I've been accused many times of having a close resemblance to Don Cruqui, even by my wife. Someday I'll send that woman over the moon.
