Absolutely classic montage of old video from WEWS here.

First, see clips of Cavs management sitting around a table on a conference call during draft night when they select Austin Carr (and notice the gorgeous Cavs pennant display in the background.)

Then check out glimpses of the old Cleveland Arena (cool for all us youngsters who never saw it).

And, finally and most importantly, watch Bill Fitch talk to the American Dairy Princess, who gives Fitch a certificate for 71 gallons of milk. Just priceless.
