Dire Straits' Walk Of Life video ...

    ... I noticed that when they play the video for Walk Of Life on VH1 Classic, they don't show the original video that had all the mid 80s sports highlights. I assume its because Dire Straits didn't have the rights to them and the sports leagues cracked down at some point. Or maybe not. All I know is they rarely show that version which was once a MTV staple.

    Of course with the miracle that is YouTube, that kind of shit can be found again.

    Here's a SJ game. Identify all the players in the video.

    Here's the rule to keep it going ... only one sports clip per post allowed.

    I'll start. Towards the end of the video, Rolling Fingers and Ted Simmons embrace at the mound after the Brewers clinched an '81 playoff spot.
