newbie wants to remove date from captured video

Over the last few months, I have taped a lot of football games for my son's team. I am now in the process of editing them and discovered that, the date stamp that I used to think was so handy for archival purposes, has now become an enigma -- it often occupies the very few seconds of footage that I would like to keep!

Does anyone know of a plug-in .. or clever trick to remove/hide the date from tape that I can't re-capture? I have an older analog video camcorder and am using Pinnacle Plus 9 to edit things, if this helps.

The time/date stamp is on the tape? Then it's on the image. No way to 'remove' it. You can mask it with a box or blur it with a filter, but no way to remove it and have the footage underneath be pristine.

Clever trick? Put up 16:9 bars, most of the time that will cover up any time and date stamp unless it's in the middle of the screen.

That's funny - on my plasma TV I usually watch 4:3 programs in "zoom" mode so it chops off the top and bottom and fits the width to the screen. This has the same sort of effect, eliminating all the text crawls, logos and other junk that the networks like to superimpose on the bottom of the screen :-)
