The Wild World of Sports spawned program “The Superstars” makes its return to ABC on June 23rd.  The cult-classic series is always good for some unique, sometimes awkward, moments.  The YouTube clip above demonstrates just that, as Joe Frazier does his best to prove Al Campanis right, by almost drowning.  Also look for an appearance from ski royalty in Jean-Claude Killy.

As for the updated version of the show, the eight athletes chosen for the show are Bode Miller, Terrel Owens, Robert Horry, Jeff Kent, Jennifer Capriati, Brandi Chastain, Kristi Leskinen, and Lisa Leslie. The eight celebrities who will partner with an athlete are Julio Iglesias, Jr., David Charvet, Estella Warren, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Paige Hemmis,  Joanna Krupa, Ali Landry and Dan Cortese.

Dan Cortese?  For real?  What, Pauly Shore wasn’t available?
