GRAPHIC=MEN'S FINAL FOUR The N-C-A-A Tournament has become


part of American culture. Filling out
a Bracket, of course just for the fun
of it, has become as much a part of
March Madness as the Games themselves.

It could be argued and most
likely successfully that the true
beginning of the phenomenon that is the
Big Dance came back in 1979. That
Year's National Championship game
featured Indiana State and Larry Bird
taking on Magic Johnson and Michigan
State. The Spartans won the title in a
game that is still the highest rated
Championship game ever.

The Coach of Indiana State that
season Bill Hodges spoke at the Roanoke
Valley Sports Club. Hodges
currently resides in the Star City and
the game is still one with fresh
memories.

this is your week.

The much anticipated documentary
simply titled "Dale" is now in
theatres.

Unfortunately, catching the movie
in Virginia will be as tough as

catching Earnhardt on the track.

The closest screen to us is the
GTC Cinema in Danville.

OQ=...NEWS 7 SPORTS." << Unlike the movie 3 that ESPN
(END SOT) produced several years ago - DALE - has


the backing and support of the
Earnhardt family.

It is appropriately narrated by

another legend - Paul Newman - and it
features film and video footage that is
so rare - even some family members
hadn't seen it before watching the
film.

DALE JUNIOR

For fans of the intimidator -
perfection isn't a bad way to describe
it.

Racing is naturally a big part of
the documentary - but a majority of it
focuses on Dale the person and his life
off the track.

BITE OF DALE SR.

The Martinsville Speedway was
always one to Dale's favorite places.
Over the years - he won six races at
the track - but more than that he he
developed a strong friendship with
track president Clay Campbell.

BITE OF CLAY CAMPBELL

If you have trouble catching the
movie in a theatre is will be released
on DVD this fall. Mike Stevens News 7
