Naturally, I will be busy Thursday night eating Chinese food and watching "It's a Wonderful Life."

But if that's not your thing and you get the NFL Network, consider this: At 8 p.m., the channel will rerun for the first time the entire Cowboys-49ers NFC Championship Game from January, 1982, featuring Dwight Clark's famous game-winning catch.

The coolest part: The game announcers on CBS were Vin Scully and Hank Stram.

Even cooler: Beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday, MLB Network will show for the first time Games 6 and 7 of the 1952 World Series, the oldest complete games in MLB's library.
