RollerGames - 1989 When pro wrestling experienced a resurgence in the 1980s could roller derby be very far behind? In 1989, RollerGames debuted in syndication in 96 percent of American TV markets. This clip is a preview of a match. It usually aired in the wee hours of the morning or on Saturday afternoons. It was roller derby with a twist. The track was a figure eight that featured a "wall of death". A live alligator pit in the track's "infield" was featured in the opening show. (Honest!) Teams in the six-team league included Hot Flash, Maniacs, and Bad Attitude. Despite halfway decent TV ratings--especially among the high school and university demographic--the show lasted just one season because its producer went bankrupt.

Perfect Strangers Season 1 Intro Perfect Strangers is an American sitcom that ran for 8 seasons from March 25, 1986 to August 6, 1993 on the ABC television network. Created by Dale McRaven, the series chronicles the rocky coexistence of midwestern American Larry Appleton (Mark Linn-Baker) and his distant cousin from eastern Mediterranean Europe, Balki Bartokomous (Bronson Pinchot). Originally airing on Tuesdays for the short six-episode first season in the spring of 1986, it moved to Wednesdays in prime time in the fall of 1986. It remained on Wednesdays until March 1988, when it was moved to Fridays. The show found its niche there as the anchor for ABC's original TGIF Friday-night lineup, though it aired on Saturdays for a short time in 1992.

Oldest Recording Gets Digital Treatment It's scratchy, but a newly digitized recording made on a Thomas Edison-invented phonograph in 1878 captures the oldest playable American voice and the first-ever recording of a musical performance, according to experts.

George Davis - Vanishing Baseball Superstar George Stacey Davis was one of the finest shortstops in Major League Baseball history. He enjoyed a 20-year MLB career from 1890 through 1909. Blessed with a strong arm and an excellent batting eye, Davis was a perennial star for the New York Giants during the late 19th and early 20th century. A switch-hitter, Davis compiled 2,688 career hits and 615 stolen bases. He still holds the Giants' club record for the longest hitting streak (36 games). So valuable was Davis to the Giants that he became one of the controversial figures in the war between the National and American Leagues when he jumped to the Chicago White Stockings of the AL in 1902. Once Davis' playing career ended, he coached Amherst College's baseball team, managed a bowling alley, and sold automobiles for a time. Then he vanished. For decades many noteworthy baseball historians rated Davis as the best player not in the Hall of Fame--and no one seemed to know what had happened to him. In 1968, Lee Allen, the historian at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, wrote an article for The Sporting News in which he asked for any information about Davis' later years and death. A woman claiming to be Davis' niece replied. She put Allen in touch with Davis' estranged sister who suggested Allen should check the records of state hospitals in Pennsylvania. Allen eventually found Davis' death certificate. He had died in a Philadelphia mental institution in 1940 at the age of 70. He had lived there for six years, suffering from the effects of syphilis. Records showed his wife paid $41 to have him quickly interred in a pauper's grave. In 1998 Davis was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame by the Veterans' Committee. For the only time in the Hall of Fame's history, no living relative could be found to accept a deceased inductee's plaque at the induction ceremony, although 50 fans from Davis' hometown of Cohoes, NY were present. The purchase of a handsome headstone for Davis' previously unmarked grave was financed by the Society for American Baseball Research shortly after Davis was enshrined in Cooperstown.

Shirley Temple - Stand Up and Cheer In 1934, 20th Century Fox signed six-year-old Shirley Temple to a movie contract after seeing her in a few "Baby Burlesque" comedies made by a low-budget film company. Temple's first film for 20CF was Stand Up and Cheer. The plot is far-fetched and hokey: The federal government appoints Warner Baxter as Secretary of Amusement with the goal of making Americans smile their way through the Great Depression! This lackluster film, comprised mostly of second-rate vaudeville acts, is almost unwatchable until little Shirley and Jimmy Dunn make their appearances and rescue what would otherwise be a stinker of a movie. Here are the eight minutes of Shirley's scenes from this historically important film. (In Shirley's autobiography she admits to having a huge crush on Dunn. You can tell the feeling is mutual. Really, who couldn't love little Shirley?)

Johnny Owen - Boxing Fatality This is the concluding segment of a BBC documentary on Welsh boxer Johnny Owen. Owen died from injuries he suffered in a world bantamweight championship fight versus titleholder Lupe Pintor of Mexico on September 19, 1980. Owen's scrawny appearance--and his nickname the "Matchstick Man"--belied the fact he was a scrappy battler with a 25-1-1 record who held the Welsh, British, Commonwealth, and European bantamweight championships. The title fight took place in front of a hostile crowd of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. Before, during, and after the fight, Owens' handlers and the Welsh fans who had travelled thousands of miles to support Owen were routinely pelted with cups of urine thrown at them by the Hispanic fans. Nevertheless, Owen surprised everyone by putting on a competitive fight. Some writers had Owen ahead after eight rounds, but he was tiring. In the ninth round he was knocked down for the first time in his pro career. In the fateful twelfth round, Pintor floored Owen again. Owen rose and a few seconds later was knocked unconscious by a Pintor straight right. A blood clot formed on Owen's brain. He never regained consciousness and died 45 days after the fight. He was 24 years old. Owen's family held no grudge against Pintor and encouraged him to continue his boxing career. When a memorial statue to Owen was about to erected in his hometown of Merthyr Tydfil, Wales in 2000, Owen's father insisted Pintor perform the official unveiling. Pintor obliged.
