"Lady Claire" Teaches You Cricket!
A satirical sportscast from The Spartan Scene
Sometime in the early 1980s, the Mayo High School student-produced news program got the idea of turning over the broadcast to the faculty. (It was very possibly an April 1st show.) A handful of willing teachers stepped in front of the cameras but no one was more willing to poke fun of their public persona than Mrs. Van Zant. She took up the challenge of delivering the sportscast but added her own special charm- a primer in the art of cricket!
It was never confirmed, but the talk around the studio was that Claire herself knew nothing about the game and had to rely on her husband Bob to explain it to her. Nevertheless, she delivers the training with quintessential Van Zant flare!
