Farrah Fawcett plays Gayle Roberts, a former model and Sports Illustrated cover girl who wants to be taken seriously as a broadcast journalist She's a co-anchor on an all-sports network along the lines of ESPN. Ryan O'Neal plays "Downtown" Bobby Tannen, a man whose talents have always been overshadowed by his self-destructiveness. A star receiver on the Jets' Super Bowl champion team back in '69, Bobby is famous mostly for wasted talent. He once quit football to marry and manage the career of a juggling stripper. His return to the NFL was cut short, first when he punched out a reporter and then when he ended up in jail for tax evasion. Now. he's a 42-year-old pizza delivery man.
But the on-camera death of Gayle's co-anchor leaves an opening at RSCN. Mr. Rappaport (Lane Smith), a Ted Turnerish cable mogul, spots Bobby on "Where Are They Now" and immediately tabs him as the new co-anchor.

Good Sports - Laureus World Sports Awards - Netflix
The Laureus World Sports Awards is an annual award ceremony honouring individuals and teams from the world of sports along with sporting achievements throughout the year. It was established in 1999 by Laureus Sport for Good Foundation founding patrons Daimler and Richemont and supported by its global partners Mercedes-Benz and IWC Schaffhausen. The awards support the work of Laureus Sport for Good, which supports over 100 community projects in around 40 countries. These projects aim to use the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage, and prove that sport has the power to change the world. The name “Laureus” is derived from the Greek word for laurel, considered a traditional symbol of victory in athletics. The first ceremony was held on 25 May 2000 in Monte Carlo at which Nelson Mandela gave the keynote speech. As of 2018, awards are made annually in eight categories, with a number of discretionary categories irregularly recognised. The recipient of each award is presented with a Laureus statuette, created by Cartier, at an annual ceremony held in various locations around the world. As of 2018, the ceremonies have been held in eleven cities around the world, and are broadcast in at least 160 countries. Swiss tennis player Roger Federer holds the record for the most awards with six. A number of awards have been rescinded, namely those presented to American cyclist Lance Armstrong, American sprinter Marion Jones and Canadian amputee sprinter Earle Connor, all of whom were subsequently found to have doped.
