Watch the entire 1980 Phillies Championship Parade in all its 80's glory

Watch the entire 1980 Phillies Championship Parade in all its 80's glory

I stumbled upon a pretty rare YouTube gem this afternoon which is the entire broadcast of the 1980 Phillies Championship Parade on PHL17. Some of you old heads may remember this day rather well, but many of you probably weren't even born yet when the Phillies first took their first float ride down Broad Street. This video gives a remarkable look back at what things were like in 1980.

The parade took place on October 22nd, 1980. I was about a week away from being born. A few observations:

- Announcers and reporters on PHL17 included Bob Bradley, Howard Eskin, Dan Baker, Gene Hart, and Sid Doherty, before Harry Kalas takes the mic for the ceremony.

- God bless television of today. We like to mock whichever host or announcer annoys us a little too much every game, but look at the footage from this telecast and compare it to the camera quality and angles we have today. We're downright spoiled.

- 10-20 people deep in center city according to the telecast

- The victory celebration at the end of the parade took place at JFK Stadium, the long destroyed venue perhaps best remembered for hosting Live Aid back in 1985.

- The shots of the Philly skyline barely look recognizable. No Comcast Tower obviously, but also no Liberty Place I or II. Or any tall building really. What a different city.

- At around 21:30 or so in the video, the crowd breaks through the barriers in center city and starts running down Broad Street alongside the Phillies on the flatbeds. This is by far the best part.

- Former umpire Eric Gregg joins the telecast around the 30:30 mark

- Johnny Callison, a Phillies great who your father probably told you about having a great cannon, joined the telecast around 43:30

- Del Ennis joins around 49:00

- Harry Kalas takes over the announcing duties at JFK Stadium around the 57:15 minute mark

- I think one random Phillie is wearing an Eagles hat

- The players -- including Mike Schmidt, Larry Bowa, Pete Rose, and Tug McGraw -- start taking the mic around the 1:05 mark.

- Tugger and Michael Jack the best speeches. Both keep it short and sweet but Tugger takes a little jab at New York which was kind of funny.

Tonight's lineup: Cesar Hernandez in, Maikel Franco out vs. Yu Darvish

Pete Mackanin continues to play musical chairs with his logjam of infielders.

Tonight, Cesar Hernandez returns to the Phillies' lineup playing second and leading off. He sat against lefty Clayton Kershaw and will face righty Yu Darvish tonight. Hernandez has fared better against right-handers (.293) than southpaws (.279). He leads the team with a .359 OBP this season.

Maikel Franco will take a seat tonight. Franco has been much better over his last 10 games. In that span, Franco is 15 for 35 (.371) with two homers and seven RBIs. His average for the season is still just at .232.

J.P. Crawford will take over at the hot corner and bat seventh. Crawford has been sort of up and down since his call up, but his patented control of the strike zone has certainly translated at the big league level. The rookie is hitting a modest .256 so far but has an OBP of .340.

Here is the rest of tonight's lineup:
1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
2. Freddy Galvis, SS
3. Odubel Herrera, CF
4. Rhys Hoskins, 1B
5. Nick Williams, RF
6. Aaron Altherr, LF
7. J.P. Crawford, 3B
8. Jorge Alfaro, C
9. Aaron Nola, P

And here's how the Dodgers will line up against Nola:
1. Chris Taylor, CF
2. Corey Seager, SS
3. Justin Turner, 3B
4. Cody Bellinger, 1B
5. Curtis Granderson, RF
6. Chase Utley, 2B
7. Yasmani Grandal, C
8. Andre Ethier, LF
9. Yu Darvish, P
