My Kind of Skills Competition

The current skills competition is pretty stupid (40% of the vote for wearing a hat?). I much prefer the good ol' style of one-on-one, backyard dueling that was featured on the CBC series Showdown '78, starring Flyers great Rick MacLeish. The only thing at stake was pride. Well, that and a grand prize of TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!

I tried putting these clips on YouTube but couldn't. They're pretty flippin' sweet, and are totally worth clicking on.
