ROLLERBALL and MST3K have a mutual Intro (and I have too much time on my hand)

Just happened to notice the tag-line in the original poster for Rollerball and suddenly I couldn’t help myself (keep in mind that that opening phrase isn’t exclusive to either one of them):

In the not too distant future
War will no longer exist
But there will be Rollerball
And guys with iron fists
Jonathan E. works for Energy
A captain of the Houston team
He did a good job getting all the goals
But his bosses didn’t like him
Cause his fame was getting bold

We’ll send him teams that’re dirty
The worst we can find (la-la-la)
He’ll have to sit and watch them as
They hospitalize Moonpie (la-la-la)
Now keep in mind Jon can’t control
Where the games begin or end (la-la-la)
Because the rules are all made up
By evil John Houseman

Rollerball countdown!
Three (look out)
Two (get ready)
One (my head’s in the way)

If you’re wondering if he really wins
when the movie has its final scene (la-la-la)
Be happy that it’s Rollerball
And not Soylent Green
Rollerball with James Caan!

I recently saw an episode of THE BIONIC WOMAN where Houseman played the villain and suddenly remembered that Lindsay Wagner played his daughter in THE PAPER CHASE movie. Talk about a weird reunion for THE BIONIC WOMAN.
