Thinking about how WWE does the Old School Raws every once in a while, does anyone think the NBA or NFL should follow suit with something similar for a game or two? Not only do the throwback uniforms, but also strip down all the graphics to something similar to how it was 20 or so years ago, not keeping them up forever, no continuous crawls, etc. Anyone else think this would be cool?

I think it would be funny if UFC did an old school night in terms of reinstating the old rules for one night. I could just imagine the surprise when someone hits his opponent with a roundhouse kick as they're trying to get back on their feet. Of course something like this would kill any progress they have made as both a company and a sport since the days when they had the "human cock fighting" stigma.
I have a podcast "Nothing's Funny with Jeff & Josh". We have a Halloween episode up as of today (October 31st appropriately enough).
I had thought that the Red Sox did this a couple years back but I wasn't able to find anything. They had throwback everything. The p.a. system and video screen were turned off. Ticket prices were lowered to what they were back then. The concession stand only sold cracker jacks. I believe they even turned off the dugout phones to the bullpens. I'd have no problem with teams doing that a couple times a year.
