Former Pro Football quarterback Joe Namath starred in the is offbeat 1978 TV series.
Joe Casey was a washed-up pro basketball player turned history teacher and coach at Waverly High, in Eastfield, Wisconsin. It was questionable who was more inept, Joe in the classroom (he knew nothing about history) or his team, the Waverly Wonders, on the court.
His team included: Faguzzi, the fumbling "Italian Stallion"; Tate, so shy, he wouldn't take a shot; Connie, the cute tomboy who was the best player on the team and Parks, the fast-talking con artist. Linda Harris was the attractive Principal and George Benton the crotchety former coach, known affectionately as "old prune face."
