Musical Interlude: Walk of Life (1985)

Everyone loves watching blooper reels. The British band Dire Straits knew that, so when they needed to shoot a music video for "Walk of Life", off "Brothers in Arms", they created a new version for American audiences, filled with an assortment of flubs from the NFL, NBA, and MLB. There's a quick shot of the late pitcher Tug McGraw, then with the Phillies, whose son, Tim, would go on to forge a career as a country singer.

As we all know, the Houston Oilers later became the Tennessee Titans, and I'm sure you can figure out the rest for your trivia quiz at your next party.
