'Sesame Street' tradition of athletics
If you were a child sometime in the past 40 years, you most likely grew up watching "Sesame Street."
It was one of the first children's shows on television which not only incorporated learning, but made it entertaining for kids.
Furry puppets teaching children how to read was a new concept 40 years ago, and to this day it's still loved and revered. Nowadays, it's rare to see a home with young children who are unaware of the names Elmo, Big Bird and Grover.
