Wimbledon Streaker - 1996 A young female streaker, wearing a big smile and little else, pranced across Centre Court moments before the men's 1996 Wimbledon final. The 23-year-old streaker's name was Melissa Johnson. With her courage bolstered by a few drinks, Johnson climbed over a barrier at one end of the court and dashed the length of its periphery--passing in front of finalists Richard Krajicek and MaliVai Washington as they posed near the net for photographs. Johnson, who had been working at a Wimbledon pizza stand, wore only a tiny maid's apron. She was quickly escorted off the court near the Royal Box by two policemen. Both players broke into laughter, as did most of the 14,000 fans. Washington paused a moment and then doubled over trying to contain his laughter. Walking back to the baseline to begin his warmup, the American lifted up his tennis shirt to bare his own chest and received a large ovation. "I look over and I see this streaker ..." said Washington, who lost to Krajicek in straight sets. "Gee, she smiles at me. She had on an apron. She lifted it up and she was still smiling at me. I got flustered, and three sets later I was gone. ... That was pretty funny." Johnson was taken to Wimbledon police station where she was held until the end of the match. A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said "no further action" would be taken. Usually stiff and proper, The All England club was unexpectedly light-hearted regarding the moment. "Whilst we do not wish to condone the practice, it did at least provide some light amusement for our loyal and patient supporters, who have had a trying time during the recent bad weather," a club statement said. A Centre Court spectator, 57-year-old travel agent Peter Goord, said Johnson's streak even drew a humorous reaction from the royals in attendance. "When she got in front of the Royal Box, she lifted it up and showed everything off," Goord said. "The Duke of Kent was laughing like mad. She then ran into the policemen's arms. There was no way she was trying to get away." Wimbledon officials had expressed concern before the opening of the tournament that a streaker might appear--coaxed on by several of Britain's large bookmakers offering odds on it happening. Before the tournament, William Hill bookmakers reduced the odds on a streaker interrupting Centre Court play during the final to 4-1. John McEnroe, doing commentary for NBC, apparently approved of the goings-on. "We need a replay from every possible angle!" he excitedly exclaimed. His broadcast partner, the distinguished Dick Enberg, reminded McEnroe that it was "a family show." Replied McEnroe, "My family would love it!!!"

Michael Jordan - Baseball Career The sports world was stunned by Michael Jordan's sudden retirement from the NBA in 1993. Equally surprising, in 1994 the 31-year-old Jordan decided to pursue a career as a professional baseball player in the Chicago White Sox organization. He spent the 1994 season as an outfielder with the AA Birmingham Barons of the Southern League. Jordan recorded 88 hits in 436 at-bats for a paltry .202 batting average. He had three home runs, 51 RBIs, and stole 30 bases. Defensivley he committed 11 errors and had a .952 fielding percentage. Jordan returned to the NBA in 1995.

Cafe Americain - Sitcom Flop 1993 A ratings disappointment for NBC in the 1993-94 TV season was Café Americain, a sitcom starring Valerie Bertinelli. Bertinelli played a young American woman, Holly Aldrige, who finds a job working as a waitress in a small café in France even though she speaks no French. The cast consisted of an assortment of eccentric characters from around the world who regularly visited the café, generating comedic circumstances. One, Madame Ybarra, a former dictator's wife, was a thinly veiled spoof of Imelda Marcos. Another was Fabiana Borelli, a tempestuous Italian model, and her perpetually jealous Italian lover Carlo. They regularly sparred and reconciled. The show never garnered a following, even with a favorable timeslot change. It was yanked from NBC's regular schedule in February 1994 after just 16 episodes. In May two previously unaired episodes were shown on one night.

Gymnastics Age Scandal - Kim Gwang Suk Some people never age--at least in the world of women's gymnastics. Kim Gwang Suk was a North Korean gymnast who competed at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. She was also at the forefront of the one of the biggest scandals in her sport's history when it was discoverd she was listed as 15 years old for three consecutive years! (At that time, a gymnast had to be at least 15 to compete in senior events; the age minimum was raised to 16 in 1997.) Kim's petite frame fooled everyone, including the folks at FIG, the governing body for international gymnastics. They never did manage to obtain her real age. Nevertheless, the impossibility of Kim being 15 for three years prompted FIG to ban the entire North Korean team from the 1993 World Championships.
