Lou Gehrig Streak Reaches 2000 Lou Gehrig's remarkable streak of consecutive MLB games played reached 2,000 during the 1938 season, as this playful publicity photo shows. Early in the 1939 season the streak would end in Detroit at 2,130. Two years later Gehrig was dead from ALS at age 38.

Our Gang - Porky Eugene Lee played Porky in 42 Our Gang movies from 1935 through 1939. Born in 1933, Lee was spotted by a Hal Roach talent scout in Dallas who thought Lee resembled established Our Gang star Spanky McFarland, who also came from Dallas. Someone associated with Roach dubbed Lee 'Porky,' and he became part of the Our Gang troupe at age two. Porky's character seldom said more than one or two lines per movie. Still, it was Porky who first said 'Otay!' instead of 'Okay!' although Buckwheat seems to be more famous for its use. Porky had the good fortune of being part of the heyday of the Our Gang shorts. However, his career with the troupe came to an abrupt end when he grew five inches in 1939--and the not-quite-six-year-old was nearly as tall as 11-year-old Spanky. He was replaced by Mickey Gubitosi in the troupe. For a while Porky distanced himself from his childhood acting exploits, even to the point of legally altering his name to Eugene Gordon Lee. As an adult, Lee had a successful career as an educator. Lee had a change of heart in later years and embraced his fame as Porky. He frequently attended cast reunions and conventions. He even manufactured and sold Porky-themed memorabilia. Lee died of brain and lung cancer a few days before his 72nd birthday in 2005.

The Kraut Line During the 1930s and 1940s, the Boston Bruins' offense was geared around its famous 'Kraut Line' of Bobby Bauer, Milt Schmidt and Woody Dumart. All three hailed from Kitchener, Ontario which had (and still has) a large German population. The line helped Boston win Stanley Cups in both 1939 and 1941. During the Second World War, the threesome's moniker was changed to 'the Kitchener Kids' because, as hockey historian Brian McFarlane noted with understatement, 'Things German weren't too popular.'

The Terror of Tiny Town One of Hollywood's true curiosities was The Terror of Tiny Town (1938)--an all-midget musical western! The cowboys ride Shetland ponies and enter the saloon by walking under its swinging doors! Many of the cast members would also play Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz in 1939.

Gay Stories Magazine This is the cover from the May 1939 edition of Gay Stories magazine. I somehow suspect the title would have a different connotation today.

N.Y. Yankees Fire Red Barber - 1966 Red Barber was one of the great baseball broadcasters of all time. He began as the radio voice of the Cincinnati Reds in 1934. He became the Brooklyn Dodgers' lead broadcaster in 1939 and held that position until 1953 when he fell into disfavor with Dodger management over salary demands. The New York Yankees quickly hired Barber to work alongside Mel Allen beginning in 1954. The two men had contrasting styles but they meshed well together. Barber was the restrained southern gentleman while Allen was exuberant and bombastic. Barber's tenure with the Yankees ended suddenly at the end of the 1966 season--largely because he had the courage to report the truth. The Yankees, owned by CBS at the time, were a last-place team in 1966. During a home game on Thursday, September 22, only 413 fans were scattered around the cavernous ballpark to watch the Yankees play the visiting Chicago White Sox in a makeup game. The TV cameramen were under strict instructions from CBS media relations not to follow foul balls into the sea of empty seats. Barber, though, took it upon himself to paint the scene with words. "I don't know what the paid attendance is today," he said, "but whatever it is, it is the smallest crowd in the history of Yankee Stadium...and this crowd is the story, not the game." That game was the first for CBS executive Mike Burke as team president. A week later, Barber was invited to a breakfast meeting where Burke abruptly told him that his contract wouldn't be renewed for 1967. Barber was so stunned by the news that he rose from the table and left the restaurant without speaking. Barber had fully expected Burke to reaffirm his importance to a rebuilding team. Barber retired from sports broadcasting altogether. He died in 1992 at age 84.
