14. Who were the well-known sportscasters covering the Super Bowl game near the end of the movie?
From Quiz The Great "Heaven Can Wait" from '78
Answer: Curt Gowdy and Al DeRogatis
Gowdy and DeRogatis were the main NBC football broadcasting team through much of the 1960s and 1970s, and Gowdy covered some of the great moments in sports history, including Ted Williams' home run in his final at-bat, and Hank Aaron's 715th home run, passing Babe Ruth. Gowdy covered every odd-numbered Super Bowl from 1967 to 1979 - plus, of course, the Super Bowl in "Heaven Can Wait."
Gowdy and DeRogatis are never seen on camera, but two well-known broadcasters who do appear in the movie are Dick Enberg, who does the locker room interviews after the Super Bowl, and Bryant Gumbel, uncredited, doing a television sportscast.
