Ramon Santiago - Reverse Triple Crown Any baseball fan worth his salt knows that the rare triple crown is attained when a player leads his league in home runs, runs batted in, and batting average in the same season. No one has accomplished the feat in either major league since 1967 when Carl Yastrzemski did it for the Boston Red Sox. However, Ramon Santiago of the pitiful 2003 Detroit Tigers captured the "reverse triple crown." Huh? A reverse triple crown is when a player finishes last in all three categories (and has enough at-bats to qualify for the batting title). Santiago, the Tigers' shortstop in 2003, had two home runs, 29 runs batted in and batted just .225. Those 2003 Tigers finished with a horrendous 43-119 record to set an AL record for most losses in a season. On the brighter side, Santiago led the major leagues that same season with 18 sacrifice bunts.

Jacqueline Gareau Victory Ceremony On Arpil 21, 1980, Jacqueline Gareau, 27, of Montreal competed in the prestgious Boston Marathon. Gareau took the lead amongst the female runners after seven miles. Accordingly, the television coverage focused on her until the controversial finish. Gareau was shocked to find another runner, Rosie Ruiz, had broken the tape ahead of her. Ruiz was disqualified after an investigation proved that she had started the race, vanished, and then re-entered the marathon course a few hundred meters from the finish line. Despite overwhelming evidence that she had cheated, Ruiz remained utterly defiant--to the point of refusing to return her medal. Gareau was awarded a medal a few days after the fact in a subdued ceremony. Twenty-five years later, at the 2005 Boston Marathon, the 52-year-old Gareau rightfully got her "moment of victory" denied to her in 1980 by Ruiz's cheating. Gareau was allowed to ceremonially break the tape, and was given a bigger medal than Ruiz had gotten in 1980.

Ali-Liston Phantom Punch Fight - 1965 Perhaps the most controversial fight in boxing history: Ali-Liston II in Lewiston, ME on May 25, 1965. Ali (then Cassius Clay) had upset Liston on February 25, 1964 in Miami to win the world heavyweight title. The rematch, scheduled for Boston, was delayed by a few months because Ali needed emergency hernia surgery. By the time Ali had healed, he was tremendously unpopular because of his ties with the Black Muslims. Liston had connections in organized crime. Boston wanted no part of the fight, so it was moved to a high school hockey arena in Lewiston. Rumors that something odd would happen circulated before the fight. Watch Ali's famous "phantom punch" knock out Liston, a man who had never been floored before. Some people think it is a perfect punch. Others think Liston took a dive. Also watch ex-champ Jersey Joe Walcott botch the refereeing. Ali never goes to a neutral corner, yet Liston is somehow counted out. Ali wasn't exactly a one-punch knockout artist. He only had two first-round knockouts in his pro career. Renowned sports writer Red Smith, one of many respected journalists who maintained the fight was fixed, said, "I saw the punch; it wouldn't have crushed a grape."

2011 Stanley Cup Riot Commentary One of the most embarrassing episodes in Canadian history: On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins soundly defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 to win the Stanley Cup in the seventh game of the finals in Vancouver. Disappointed Canucks fans and mindless hooligans (those two terms may be interchangeable) did not accept the defeat well. They laid waste to Vancouver's downtown--much as they did in 1994 when the Canucks lost in the finals to the New York Rangers! The following night on CBC's National News, commentator Rex Murphy bluntly expressed his disgust with the rioters.

Boston Bruins Amazing Comeback On May 13, 2013, one of the most stunning and improbable comebacks in sports history occurred. With under 11 minutes left in regulation time, the Boston Bruins rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the seventh game of their opening round NHL playoff series versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. Boston had only scored three goals in the previous eight periods of the series before rallying. It was wild euphoria for Boston's fans--but utter disbelief for Toronto's fans. This condensed highlight clip shows the Leafs taking a 4-1 lead in the third period, the three Boston goals that tied the game, and the overtime winner by Patrice Bergeron.

1978 Stanley Cup Final - Game 4 OT Today's NHL is faster, more diverse, and probably more skilled, but some hockey fans argue that the passion of the 1970s NHL has not been surpassed. Here is the overtime period of Game #4 of the 1978 Stanley Cup finals at Boston Garden between the hometown Bruins and their longtime rivals the Montreal Canadiens. The excitement in the building is palpable! Dan Kelly--perhaps hockey's greatest announcer--calls the action.

1970 Stanley Cup Semifinal - Bruins vs Hawks Before 2013, the most important NHL playoff series ever contested between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins was the 1970 Eastern Division final. Many people considered it to be the "real Stanley Cup final" because the Eastern teams were comprised of the stronger Original Six clubs while the Western Divison was comprised of the expansion teams from 1967. Chicago and Boston had both finished the 1969-70 season with 99 points. Chicago was credited with the top spot on the basis of most wins. Chicago was the slight favorite to win the series--but Boston won the series in surprising four-game sweep. (They would also sweep the overmatched St. Louis Blues in the Cup final.) Here are some highlights of the first three games from the Bruins-Blackhawks series.

Short Life of Patrick Kennedy For two days in August 1963, the attention and concern of many Americans was focused on the newborn son of president John F. Kennedy, Patrick. Patrick Bouvier Kennedy was born by emergency caesarean section five-and-a-half weeks early at the Otis Air Force Base Hospital in Bourne, Massachusetts. His birth weight of 4 pounds 10-1/2 ounces medically classified him as premature. Immediately after Patrick's birth, he was transferred to Boston Children's Hospital where he died two days later of hyaline membrane disease, following treatment in a hyperbaric chamber. His obituary in The New York Times stated that, at that time, all that could be done for a victim of hyaline membrane disease "is to monitor the infant's blood chemistry and to try to keep it near normal levels." Hyaline membrane disease, now more commonly called respiratory distress syndrome, helped spark new public awareness of the disease and further research. In 2004, the disease had an overall mortality of less than 15%ólower among mildly to moderately premature infants, such as with the Kennedys' infant son. Had he been born 50 years later in August 2013, his odds of survival would have been 95%. Treatment modalities are now widely available in developed countries, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), pulmonary surfactant replacement, and improved respirator technology, that either did not exist or were unavailable in 1963.
