Forgotten Sitcom - Phyl and Mikhy If you remember this short-lived CBS citcom you have a great memory and ought to report to the nearest trivia contest. Phyl and Mikhy was about two athletes (one American and one Soviet). The Soviet, Mikhail Orlov, was a decathlete who defected to the Unites States to marry Phyllis Wilson, a star athlete from Pacific Western University. The show starred Murphy Cross as Phyllis (Phyl) and Rick Lohman as Mikhail (Mikhy). Jack Dodson played the head of the school's alumni association. Michael Pataki played a blundering Soviet consulate official assigned to get Mikhy back to the USSR. It was a typical fish-out-of-water sitcom that played upon Cold War politics and the defector's comical adjustment to life in western society. Only six episodes of Phyl and Mikhy aired, beginning on May 26, 1980 and ending on June 30. The fact that the United States had announced its boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympics probably made this show even more far-fetched than it already was.

1985 NBA Draft Lottery Conspiracy Many NBA fans steadfastly claim that the league's first draft lottery, held in 1985, was rigged. Prior to 1985, the two teams that finished in last place in the NBA's two conferences used a coin toss to determine which of the bottom-feeders would pick first overall in the collegiate draft that summer. This practice led to the accusation that some teams that had little hope of being competitive were deliberately tanking games to get in on the coin toss. To make tanking a less attractive proposition, the NBA instituted a 'draft lottery' in 1985 in which the seven teams that did not qualify for the playoffs had an equal chance of getting the first overall pick. In 1985 that selection would obviously be used to choose Patrick Ewing of Georgetown University who had led the Hoyas to three berths in the NCAA final in four years. Even before the draft was held there was scuttlebutt that the NBA would rig the draw so that the New York Knicks, the team with the biggest TV market, would get the #1 pick. The lottery was held at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. CBS televised the lottery between halves of a playoff game. As this clip shows, it was a very simplistic lottery. Seven sealed envelopes, each containing a team's logo, were put into a transparent sphere drum. The drum was spun. Commissioner David Stern selected the seven envelopes one at a time for the one to seven draft slots in that order. Almost immediately conspiracy theorists argued the draw had been rigged in favor of the Knicks. The fourth envelope tossed into the drum contained the Knicks' logo. It ended up with a bent corner because it was tossed into the drum more strongly than the other envelopes. Some cynics even claim the Knicks' envelope was frozen so Commissioner Stern would select the coldest envelope first! Others point out that the law firm responsible for overseeing the fairness of the lottery had a financial interest in the Knicks. Interestingly, the team that ended up with the seventh pick, Golden State, had the worst record in the NBA in 1984-85. In previous years they would have gotten no worse than the second pick. David Stern has always scoffed at the idea that the 1985 lottery was rigged. Watch for yourself and decide if anything was amiss.
