    By the way, one of the best competitive shows I've ever seen (no celebrities) was on ESPN once. A fire-fighter's challenge, where they did events based on stuff you have to do when you are a firefighter -- carry hose up four flights of stairs, etc. With different divisions for age, and so on.

    Sounds like the New York State Volunteer Firefighters Competition. This was one of ABC's Wide World of Sports' "annual events" (along with, e.g. a Harlem Globetrotters game, the St. Moritz toboggan run (how many victims will the Shuttlecock turn claim this year?), the World Lumberjack Championships (from Hayward, WI), and the World Wrist Wrestling Championships (from Petaluma, CA)).

    Could be. It was much more recent than WWoS (i.e. post-TiVo) and international (some firehouses from Canada, which is not surprising for an event taking place in New York).

    Whatever the event, it was a fine show of athleticism by everyone (young and old, men and women).

    It could have been the annual World Police & Fire Games, which is a big deal.

    Found it: SCOTT Firefighter Combat Challenge®

    Apologies for the hijack -- you can carry on complaining about celebrities now.
