Bannister-Landy Miracle Mile 1954 One of the most famous track-and-field events of all time occurred on August 7, 1954. In May 1954 England's 25-year-old Roger Bannister became the first runner to record a sub-four-minute mile when he ran a 3:59.4 race at Oxford. About six weeks later, Australia's John Landy, age 24, claimed the world record by running the mile in an unheard of 3:58 flat in Finland. The two men would meet head-to-head in the British Empire Games in Vancouver in August 1954 in a race as eagerly anticipated as any in history. Landy had a reputation for establishing an insurmountable early lead in races and coasting to wins. Bannister, however, was known for possessing a strong finishing kick. This rare clip is from the CBC archives in Canada; it shows the entire race. Two things to watch: Look at how the front-running Landy constantly looks behind him to see where Bannister is. Also notice that every activity on the infield came to a standstill as all eyes were glued to the "Miracle Mile" race unfolding on the track.

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!

1909 World Series Scorecard Before electric scoreboards came along, fans who wanted to follow a baseball game closely kept personal scorecards. (Some still do, God bless them!) This skill, of course, required an attention span which is something of a dying trait these days. This scorecard is from the 1909 World Series between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates. Notice how Pittsburgh is spelled without the "h." This is not a misprint. At the time the U.S. Post Office wanted to standardize the spellings all American cities that ended with "burgh" to make them "burg." Everyone complied for a while, but after a couple of decades many cities slowly reverted back to the spelling as it appeared on their charters. Oh, yeah: Pittsburgh won the 1909 World Series in seven games.
