Syracuse vs. Villanova 1980

If you have some spare time before now and this Saturday's game against Nova you might want to check out this video of Syracuse and Villanova from back in 1980 at the Carrier Dome. Both websites suck but you can find it here Better Version or here Full Screen Option . Actually there's so much history and funny things to see here, you should definitely take an afternoon to view it.  It is amazing to see how far things have come from the first season in the Dome. First off Marv Albert is your announcer, and near the end of the game they announce the Attendance at 15,000, then they mention the record is 18,000 and that over 20,000 tickets have already been sold for the St. John's game(a few things have been multiplied and subtracted from that equation) .  There's obviously a lot more and so for those of you who don't have time to watch it I've picked out some highlights, and for those who do watch it this is a preview of its Awesomeness.

Second, Coach Boeheim was still young and in his prime, so he could Survive being eaten by the crowd. ***Note: This may happen if the Attendance record is broken this Saturday. ***

 

The Best Part of this video and something that I at least think would be cool to bring back to the Dome is the cast of characters hanging around or maybe you would call them "Mascots" Such As...

And finally the Wolfman was a big Celebrity Sighting back at the Dome when it first Opened. This takes place Around the 15min mark of the video, coming back from commercial the announcer says "Now that looks like Manley Fieldhouse" Now my history is a little fuzzy but can someone please track down the tape of when Manley Field house was converted into a Gladiator Arena for Mascots. That is how Otto rose to be our sole Mascot isn't it?
