When the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers met at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, for the championship of the National Football League, the temperature was 14 degrees below zero (a steady 14-mph wind created windchills of -46·). But if the Cowboys were bothered by the cold, you couldnʹt tell from the way they were playing. A 50-yard option pass from halfback Dan Reeves to Lance Rentzel put them ahead 17-14, with just five minutes to play. Packers quarterback Bart Starr responded with a long drive that took his team to the Dallas one-yard line. There were 13 seconds left, and Green Bay had no more time-outs. Packers coach Vince Lombardi had already decided not to attempt a tying field goal. Overtime was unthinkable in this bitter cold. No, this game would come down to one last play. With each exhalation creating clouds around their helmets, the players pawed at the frozen ground, trying to gain purchase for their cleats. Everyone on the planet knew Starr would try to run behind right guard Jerry Kramer. The lineman got just enough traction to nudge back Dallasʹs Jethro Pugh, and Starr, slipping in behind him, eked out what remains to this day the most famous TD in NFL history.

In 1999, ABC 2000 celebrated New Yearʹs Day for almost 24 hours covering the worldʹs New Years Eve celebrations as each of the time zones rang in the year 2000. Well, that had to be the most uneventful 24 hours of “event TV” ever. And wasnʹt it wonderful? No terrorist attacks, no power failures, no airplane or computer crashes. Instead, New Yearʹs Eve offered a day of celebratory TV. It was a grand party, and there was no better host than ABC, led by a relaxed, appealingly avuncular and emotional Peter Jennings.Though cableʹs 24-hour newscasts all offered coverage, Jennings and ABC best captured the shifting mood of the day.
