Who else remembers headline news from the 90's?

Who else can still remember watching Headline News in the 90's for and only for the scores on the ticker on the bottom of the screen? Which we did when we didn't get on the internet for streams or even play by plays of games! And when we would make a point to be watching Headline News at 20 and 50 after the hour cause that was when they did the Headline sports segments!

Monday night football, mostly for all the game clips from the weekend. Now days, just google them.

I also remember that the ticker on the bottom of the screen went through the games by conference. But they never updated the database by conference affiliation, so the Aggies’ scores continued to be grouped with the Big West for years, until I finally started turning to the mobile Internet for scores (and maybe longer).

I worked in the SID office and called every four minutes to SportsTicker with the game score. If we were lucky they'd give us one back.

Yeah I remember as a kid we didn't have cable so if you missed a game you had to check the newspaper the next day. Definitely a different time. I remember going to bed wondering who won various games.
