1975 Rose Bowl Here are edited portions of Southern Cal's game-winning drive against Ohio State in the 1975 Rose Bowl game. Ohio State was leading 17-10 late in the game. After an Ohio State field goal, Southern Cal drove the ball 84 yards for a touchdown, gambled on a two-point conversion, made it, and held on for a dramatic 18-17 win. I fondly recall this game as it was the first Rose Bowl I ever watched.

Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. “It was a beautiful spring day,” recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, “There’s someone shooting at people out there!” She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.

Peter Puck - Episode 1 Peter Puck was a Hanna-Barbera Production that appeared on hockey telecasts in Canada (on Hockey Night in Canada) and on NBC's Sunday telecasts in 1974. The likable animated rubber disk was used to educate neophytes to hockey about the game's rules. (Why this was necessary in Canada is anybody's guess!) Ronnie Schell provided Peter's voice. Here's the first of nine episodes that were made.

Jim Stafford - My Girl Bill From 1974, Jim Stafford gives a live performance of his quirky song My Girl Bill on British TV. This song actually got to number 12 on the US charts and number seven in Canada. From my experience listening to oldies stations, it's rarely heard nowadays. When My Girl Bill was first released, some radio stations banned it for promoting homosexuality. It doesn't, of course, as the last stanza explains.

1975 Sitcom Flop - The Montefuscos NBC was struggling to come up with a successful sitcom in 1975--and they failed again with The Montefuscos. The premise of the show was that three generations of an Italian-American family would gather each Sunday night for dinner at the home of the family patriarch and matriarch. Critics hated the show. One referred to it as "The Monte-Fiascos." Others objected to what they perceived as blatant ethnic sterotyping. Audiences didn't think much of it either. It could not compete with the competition opposite it on CBS (The Waltons) or on ABC (Barney Miller). The Montefuscos was axed after just eight episodes. Here's a three-minute network preview of the first episode of the short-lived series.
