Bruins-Flyers Rivalry The 1970s provided excellent hockey for NHL fans. One of the best rivalries was the Boston Bruins versus the Philadelphia Flyers. The two teams met in the playoffs four times in five seasons. In 1974, the upstart Flyers surprised the favored Bruins in six games to win the Stanley Cup. Two years later, in 1976, Philadelphia beat the Bruins in five games in a semifinal series. A year later Boston avenged the earlier defeats with a four-game sweep in the semis. (The victory was so decisive it got Boston's Brad Park and Gerry Cheevers on the cover of Sports Illustrated on May 9, 1977.) The following year, 1978, Boston again convincingly beat Philadelphia in five games in a semifinal. The 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs featured these two teams meeting in the postseason, a conference semifinal, for the first time since 1978. The Flyers won in seven games after losing the first three.

Patterson-Rademacher fight 1957 The 1950s are often described as the golden age of boxing--when depth and talent were supposedly at their finest in the sweet science. People tend to forget that the heavyweight division was rather weak for much of the decade. Contenders for the world heavyweight title were so scarce that Pete Rademacher, the 1956 Olympic gold medalist, got a coveted shot at world heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson's title in his pro debut! Having won the heavyweight laurels in Melbourne in 1956 by scoring three knockouts in his only three bouts, Rademacher, a Washingtonian, somehow persuaded the powers that be that it would be a great idea if he could fight Patterson in Seattle' Sick Stadium in a unique amateur-versus-pro matchup. Patterson agreed if the promoters could guarantee him $250,000. They did--so the fight was set for August 22, 1957. Surprisingly, Rademacher did well in the first two rounds, pressing the action and even scoring a knockdown with a hard right hand. By the fourth round, however, Patterson's class began to show. He scored one of what would be seven knockdowns of the game challenger. Eventually Rademacher was knocked out in the fifth round. The promotion barely generated financial enough interest to meet Patterson's guaranteed payday. Depending on which source you believe, Rademacher got either absolutely nothing or a laughable $1.75 for his losing effort. Undaunted, Rademacher fought hard-hitting Zora Folley in his next bout--and was knocked out again. Rademacher ended his pro boxing career with a 15-7-1 record. All seven of his defeats came at the hands of world-class fighters. As of August 2015, Pete was still alive and kicking at age 86.
