New York Islanders Logo 1995-97 For reasons best known to the New York Islanders, in 1995 the NHL team decided to replace their classic logo with this one of a grizzled mariner. The team should have gotten the message when several members of the media laughed at it during its unveiling. When the Islanders played their first game with the new logo in Madison Square Garden versus the New York Rangers, the home team's supporters quickly saw the resemblance to the logo of High Liner frozen foods. The often-amusing Ranger fans began shouting, 'We want fish sticks!' for most of the game. The Islanders reverted back to their old logo in 1997.

Smith Corona Typewriters Smith Corona manufactured quality typewriters for more than a century--from 1886 until 1995--and was very successful at doing so until the advent of personal computers. Smith Corona's directors steadfastly refused to accept the reality that newer technology was replacing typewriters. Instead of embracing computer word processing, Smith Corona kept trying to improve its typewriter which the public had no interest in buying anymore. The company laid of 750 workers and declared bankruptcy in 1995. Smith Corona didn't go completely under, however. It still exists today--ironically as a company that produces parts and technologies for computers.

Jesse James Exhumation - 1995 Notorious outlaw Jesse James was shot to death at close range by Bob Ford, a fellow gang member, on April 3, 1882. Ford had hoped to collect a sizable reward by offing James. Instead, Ford got himself a first-degree murder conviction--for which he was swiftly pardoned--and a place in western folklore. Rumors began almost immediately that James' death had been faked and he was living quietly away from the limelight. In 1995--some 113 years after a bullet entered his skull, James' body was exhumed from its supposed final resting place in Kearney, MO so DNA samples could be matched against those of his living descendants. The tests scientifically proved that the man buried in James' grave was, in fact, Jesse James. Locals cashed in on the exhumation frenzy by selling t-shirts to curiosity seekers that said, "We dig Jesse!"

Ara Parseghian Passes at age 94 Here's a very good tribute to one of college football's great coaches, Ara Parseghian, who died on August 2, 2017 at the age of 94. Parseghian was the head coach of the football programs at Miami of Ohio, Northwestern, and most famously, the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. In fact, Notre Dame, whose team was in the doldrums from 1956 to 1963, hired Parseghian, a non-Catholic of Armenian descent, in 1964 largely because his Northwestern team had beaten Notre Dame four times in a row. Parseghian coached Notre Dame from 1964 to 1974 and compiled a terrific record of 95-17-4. During Parseghian's tenure, Notre Dame was twice voted national champions in the post-season polls.
