Milli Vanilli-Girl Im Gonna Miss You Milli Vanilli was a pop/dance music project formed by Frank Farian in Germany in 1988, fronted by Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus. The group's debut album achieved high sales internationally which earned them a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1990. The act became one of the most popular pop acts in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, their success turned to infamy when their Grammy was revoked after it was revealed that the lead vocals on the record were not the actual voices of Morvan and Pilatus. In 1998, ten years after Milli Vanilli's initial debut, Pilatus was found dead in a Frankfurt hotel of an apparent drug overdose.

Gunilla Hutton-Nat King Cole Romance Gunilla Hutton was the Swedish singer/dancer who was the second actress to play eldest sister Billie Jo Bradley on Petticoat Junction. She was also a regular on Hee Haw for many years; her character was appropriately named Nurse Goodbody. Less well known is Hutton's involvement with Nat King Cole. At age 20, she began a romantic tryst with the legendary singer, who was 47, while she toured with his show. Had the public learned about it at the time (1964), the interracial affair and their age difference would have been a major scandal. Still, Cole was prepared to divorce Maria, his wife of 21 years, but ill health entered the equation. Cole was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Knowing he had only a short time to live, Cole opted to stay with his wife instead of Hutton.

United States Football League Sports history has shown that it is very difficult for nascent pro sports leagues to challenge old, established ones. Nevertheless, there are entrepreneurs always willing to try. From 1983 through 1985 the United States Football League existed as a spring/summer league. The USFL was the brainchild of David Dixon, a New Orleans antique dealer. In 1980, Dixon commissioned a study by Frank Magid Associates that found promising results for a spring and summer football league. He'd also formed a blueprint for the prospective league's operations, which included early television exposure, heavy promotion in home markets, and owners willing to absorb years of losses—-which he felt would be inevitable until the league found its feet. The USFL secured television contracts from both ABC and ESPN. The league also was able to sign several collegiate stars--most notably Herschel Walker who was still an underclassman. Mostly, however, the public responded with yawns. Television ratings and overall attendance were below expectations. Teams often spent far more than the proposed $1.8 million salary cap to land big-name players. In three seasons, 23 different teams played under the USFL banner. The Breakers were a typical USFL franchise, operating in three different cities (Boston, New Orleans, and Portland) over the three years. Teams typically wallowed in debt. The San Antonio Gunslingers were in such dire straits that some players, whose pay checks had bounced, were exchanging their complimentary game tickets for food and were boarding at the homes of sympathetic fans. The USFL was dealt its death blow in a courtroom in 1986 when it won an antitrust lawsuit versus the National Football League--but the jury awarded the USFL only $3 in damages. Still, some USFL innovations were evenutally adopted by the NFL. These included the two-point conversion, the use of instant replay to assist officials, and a salary cap.

Our Gang - Dorothy DeBorba Dorothy DeBorba was a regular in the early talking period of the Our Gang comedies. Recognizable by her Mary Pickford-type curls and hair ribbons, DeBorba was sometimes referred to as 'Echo' because she liked to repeat other characters' comments--or at least try. Years later DeBorba opined that the boys in the troupe always got the best lines. Yet she uttered some of the funniest lines in the long history of the Our Gang comedies. DeBorba's famous dialogue occurs in 'Love Business' when she tries to repeat the romantic lines lovesick Chubby was practising. Chubby: 'Oh, my darling, can you hear the pleas in my whispers?' Dorothy: 'Darling, I can hear the fleas in your whiskers.' Chubby: 'If love is like a rose, I will pick my rose in a bud.' Dorothy: 'If love is like a rose, I will stick my nose in the mud.' Chubby: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to trip and dance.' Dorothy: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to rip my pants.' DeBorba appeared in 24 Our Gang comedies from 1930 to 1933. She died from emphysema at age 85 on June 2, 2010.

Baseball Hitting Famine 1968 This 1968 issue of Sports Illustrated discussed the 'hitting famine' in Major League Baseball. The offensive dearth reached its depths during the 1968 season, which baseball historians rightfully call 'the year of the pitcher.' That season Don Drysdale set a new record for consecutive shutout innings pitched. Bob Gibson's ERA was a ridiculous 1.12. Carl Yastrzemski won the American League batting title with a mere .301 average. The decline in offense can be traced back to 1962 when MLB allowed teams to raise the pitching mound beyond its rulebook height of 15 inches, if they so desired. (It was done as a knee-jerk reponse to the the big home run season of 1961.) However, the new height of the mound gave the pitchers a huge edge. The mound at Dodger Stadium was reputedly 20 inches high in the heyday of Sandy Koufax and Drysdale. The decline in offense adversely affected attendance. The hitting famine era ended when the pitcher's mound was reduced to its modern height of ten inches in 1969.
