Remember Battle of the Sexes (1978)

I just found this segment from the Battle of the Network Stars Running Relay in 1978. A celebrity mile relay. For those of you old enough to remember this-Priceless! Lou Ferrigno handing off the baton to Valerie Bertinelli? David Letterman on the opening leg? Billy Crystal going toe-to-toe with LeVar Burton on the anchor leg? And Howard Cosell is announcing the race. Why can’t we do this kind of thing anymore? Would stars show up for this? It was so entertaining.
