Throwback Thursday: Battle of the Network Stars [Video]

Last week, I was watching CNN's special on the 70's and saw a clip of one of my favorite television shows from childhood.  Who else LOVED Battle of the Network Stars?  I could not get enough that show.  So, I started digging through YouTube and found some awesome clips from the running relay, the dunking booth and, of course, the tug-of-war!  Check these out.  They're hilarious, campy, borderline sexist, but so much fun!

The WBKR Pudding War [Video]

Over the last few years, Jaclyn and I have squared off in a variety of ridiculous games based on the card game WAR!  We've played with water (as inspired by Jimmy Fallon).  We've played with cans of whipped topping.  And we've played with eggs and flour (that was disgusting and I felt like a chicken cutlet).  This year, we've decided to pull of the 6-packs of pudding cups.  And, we wrangled Amelia the Intern to play with us.  She had no idea what was about to hit her.
