Hey there, fellow Carson aficionado! Isn’t it amazing how we can reminisce about the good old days and watch our favorite classic episodes of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson? Speaking of which, I stumbled upon this fantastic video from January 14th, 1983, featuring Randall “Tex” Cobb, and boy, did it take me back!
In 1983, we had Ronald Reagan in the White House, and the economy was showing signs of improvement after a tough recession. I don’t know about you, but I remember when a gallon of milk was only $1.35, and movie tickets set you back a mere $3.50. Ah, those were the days, right? As for popular culture, we couldn’t get enough of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Flashdance was a must-see at the theaters.
But back to the video! Tex Cobb, who had recently lost a championship match to Larry Holmes, was in high spirits despite his defeat. You’ve got to love that man’s sense of humor, right? We all remember how he never got knocked down and kept hanging in there throughout the match. Johnny, as always, knew how to keep the conversation lively and engaging, and Tex didn’t disappoint with his witty repartee.
During the interview, Tex shared his experience of the fight and how he never felt in trouble but rather in a perpetual state of frustration. Remember how he joked about needing another 20 rounds to win the fight? Classic Tex! And, of course, who could forget his hilarious take on his acting career? Or his response to Dr. Lundberg’s assertion that boxing should be outlawed? Oh, the memories!
So, my fellow Carson fan, why not relive those cherished moments by watching this fantastic video on YouTube? You can find it on the MadlyOdd channel, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy every minute of it. Give it a like and share it with your friends because, let’s face it, we could all use a good laugh and a trip down memory lane.
