Monday Night Football Ad from Sept. 10, 1984

You know I’m a big fan of old TV Guide ads, and this being a Monday, I thought I would share this old TV Guide ad from 1984 for the game on September 10 of that year between the Washington Redskins and the San Francisco 49ers. ┬áThe 49ers beat the Redskins in a 37-31 thriller in a battle between Hall of Fame QB’s Joe Montana and Joe Theismann.

You’ll also notice how liberal the advertising for alcohol was back in the days before the government intervened and put the kibosh on it. ┬áBud Light was the official sponsor of Monday Night Football, and took almost half the page with their beer ad.
