Spectacular Knockout Cardona-Avelar 1982 This may be the most devastating knockout ever suffered by a boxing champion defending his title. On March 20, 1982 Mexico's Antonio Avelar was making the second defense of his WBC world flyweight championship. His opponent was Colombia's Prudencio Cardona. Cardona, age 30, had competed in the 1972 Olympics and was thought to be past his prime. Nevertheless, Cardona delivered a knockout for the ages in the very first round to win the crown. This is Spanish commentary of the short fight. Skip to about 2:10 to get to the surprising and sudden finish.

Bomb Destroys CA Flight 11 - 1962 On Tuesday, May 22, 1962 a deadly act of madness caused Continental Airlines Flight #11 to be blown out of the sky. Eight crew members and 37 passengers perished. To date it is the worst airline disaster ever to occur in the skies over Missouri. The doomed flight departed Chicago's O'Hare Airport at 8:35 p.m. for Kansas City, MO. At the last second, Thomas G. Doty arrived at the departure gate. Although the airplane doors had been closed--and airline policy prohibits doors from being reopened--the doors were improperly reopened and Doty was permitted to board the aircraft. The flight was absolutely routine until the plane approached the Mississippi River. At that point the pilot informed air traffic control that he was deviating from the planned course to avoid severe thunderstorms in the area. In the vicinity of Centerville, IA, the radar image of the aircraft suddenly disappeared from the scope of Flight Following Service in Waverly, IA. It had nothing to do with inclement weather. At approximately 9:17 p.m. an explosion occurred in the right rear lavatory resulting in separation of the airplane's tail section from the fuselage. The remaining aircraft structure pitched nose-down violently, causing the engines to tear off, after which it fell into uncontrollable gyrations. The fuselage of the Boeing 707, minus the aft 38 feet, and with part of the left and most of the right wing intact, struck an alfalfa field on the ground. Most of the fuselage was found near Unionville, MO, but the engines and parts of the tail section and left wing were found up to six miles away from the main wreckage area. Of the 45 individuals on board, 44 were already dead when rescuers reached the crash site. One passenger, 27-year-old Takehiko Nakano of Evanston, IL, was barely alive when rescuers found him among the wreckage, but he later succumbed to fatal internal injuries. Another victim, Fred P. Herman, was a recipient of the United States Medal of Freedom. In their investigation of the crash, FBI agents discovered that late-arriving passenger Thomas G. Doty, a married man with a five-year-old daughter, had purchased a life insurance policy from Mutual of Omaha for $150,000, the maximum available. He further augmented that coverage with a flight insurance policy worth another $150,000 that he purchased just before departure. Doty had recently been arrested for armed robbery and was to soon face a preliminary hearing in the matter. Investigators determined that Doty had purchased six sticks of dynamite--at 29 cents apiece--shortly before the flight. An examination of the wreckage determined that Doty's dynamite bomb was detonated in the lavatory. His motive was purely financial: His wife and daughter would be able to collect $300,000 of life insurance. His widow attempted to collect on the insurance, but when Doty's death was ruled a suicide, the policies were voided.

Hulk Hogan Meets Johnny Carson - 1982 In the early 1980s, pro wrestling was a regional enterprise with only a niche following. In 1982, Sylvester Stallone recruited Hulk Hogan to portray the role of Thunderlips in Rocky III, elevating Hogan to a new level of stardom and introducing him to a wider audience. This amusing clip is the 28-year-old Hogan's first appearance on The Tonight Show in June 1982. At that time, Hogan was employed by the American Wrestling Association (AWA). He had been with Vince McMahon Sr.'s World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF) from 1979 to 1982 but was fired for accepting the role in Rocky III. When Vince McMahon Jr. took over the reign of the WWWF (and shortened its name by one W to the WWF), Hogan was brought back into the organization in late 1983 and groomed to be its champion. (Excuse the two minutes of music and NBC promos in the middle of the clip.)

Scofflaw - Prize-Winning Prohibition Word During America's Prohibition years, violations of the Volstead Act (which outlawed the sale, transportation, and manufacture of alcoholic beverages) were widespread. In 1924, an ardent Massachusetts prohibitionist named Delcevare King offered a $200 prize to anyone who could create a new word that would heap shame the lawless drinkers and those who enabled them. Two entrants--both from Massachusetts--named Henry Dale and Kate Butler each came up with the same winning word: scofflaw. It was clever a combination of the verb scoff (meaning to mock, deride or ridicule) and, of course, law. Dale and Butler split the $200 prize. The word did catch on and, over the years, scofflaw has expanded its meaning to encompass those who willfully break any law--not just liquor statutes.

Peggy Fleming - 1968 US Olympic Trials Nineteen-year-old Peggy Fleming officially earns her spot on the 1968 Olympic figure skating team with her free skate at the US championships at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. (The event doubled as the national Olympic trials.) Note the balletic quality of her performance. A short time later Fleming would win the Olympic gold medal in Grenoble and the world championship a few weeks after that in Geneva.
