Came across this old-time radio broadcast featuring game 5 of the 1948 World Series that pitted the Cleveland Indians against the Boston Braves.
What's really interesting about this broadcast is that it really shows how our sensibilities have changed over the past 60 years.
The legendary sports broadcaster, Mel Allen, begins the game suggesting the Indians and Braves are engaged in "tribal warfare" and that if Cleveland kept the Braves "penned up on the reservation" the two teams would soon be "smoking the peace pipe."
Allen also notes that Boston's "chief medicine man" hopes to come up with a potion to ensure the series goes back to his "own wigwam."
Just couldn't imagine Joe Buck talking like that.
