Rainstorm Terminates 1976 NFL-College Game Several years ago I made a post regarding the annual "Chicago All-Star Game"--an NFL preseason contest that pitted the reigning champions versus a team of top collegiate all-stars. Played from 1934 to 1976, it was held annually at Chicago's Soldier Field. The gate receipts benefited various charities. Here's a 10-minute clip from the clash between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the College All-Stars in July 1976. Frank Gifford and Bud Wilkinson are calling the game for ABC. One of the most severe rainstorms you'll ever see at a sports event--combined with out-of-control fans invading the field--caused the game to be terminated late in the third quarter with Pittsburgh comfortably ahead 24-0. With NFL teams becoming less and less willing to risk their promising rookies for the sake of an exhibition game, the 1976 game was the last of the series.

Peter Falk 1972 Emmy Acceptance Speech At the 1972 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Peter Falk won an Emmy for his sensational work on Columbo. Officially, the Emmy was for 'Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Series.' Here is his very amusing acceptance speech, in which he sort of sounds like Lt. Columbo when the detective is flustered.

Salvage 1 - Forgotten TV Show Andy Griffith starred in two memorable TV series--but he also was involved in a few stinkers too. In 1979 he played the central character in a far-fetched ABC adventure/sci-fi series titled Salvage 1. Griffith played Harry Broderick, an eccentric junk dealer with high aspirations. In the series' pilot episode, he and his crew built a rocket to fly to the moon to retrieve the space junk abandoned by the NASA astronauts! Later episodes were a little bit more plausible. (For example, one centered on Broderick's crew trying to find a cache of Confederate gold from the Civil War.) Salvage 1 premiered on January 29, 1979. Not surprisingly, the show never really caught on with viewers, and it was not renewed for the fall season. Nevertheless, ABC tried to resurrect it in November 1979 as a replacement for two other short-lived series. Seven new episodes were made but only three aired before ABC pulled the plug for good.

Vin Scully Reads Grocery List The greatest sports announcer of all time is Vin Scully. (This point is not debatable!) He will retire at the end of the 2016 season after 67 years of calling baseball games for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers. In 1976, a mere 27 seasons into his career, it was suggested that Vin Scully could read a grocery list and make it sound interesting. Well, someone from the San Diego Padres organization got Vin to do just that. Yep, he made it interesting. Here is the audio evidence.

Freddie Prinze - Tonight Show Debut Comedian Freddie Prinze made a sensational debut on The Tonight Show in 1973 as a 19-year-old. He got the ultimate reward when he finished his routine: Johnny Carson summoned the previously unknown performer sit next to him.

Jose Feliciano on Chico and the Man Jose Feliciano made a memorable appearance on the second season of the NBC sitcom Chico and the Man in an episode that aired in February 1976. (The episode was titled "Chico's Cousin Pepe;" Feliciano played Pepe, a blind womanizing guitarist.) The show's writers cleverly ended the episode with a chance for Pepe to play the program's theme song--which, of course, had been recorded by Jose Feliciano!

Gerald Ford WIN Buttons In 1974 after becoming president Gerald Ford's WIN buttons--Whip Inflation Now is considered one of the biggest government public relations flops. The button appealed to the Republican Ford because it put the emphasis on fighting inflation through voluntary citizen action rather than a big government bureaucracy of price controls.
