Series Synopsis: When this program aired, Bill Stern was probably the best well-known American sportscaster alive. He was charismatic, dynamic and was well-versed on most sports and it's athletes. This show was fun - the only "bad" thing about it was that Stern stretched the truth and sometimes stretched it BADLY, purely the make the stories much more exciting.
