1935 Pittsburgh Crawfords The 1935 Pittsburgh Crawfords, champions of the Negro National League, are considered one of the greatest baseball teams ever assembled. Five Hall-of-Famers played on that club: Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Judy Johnson, Cool Papa Bell, and Oscar Charleston. Nodody can say for certain how the Crawfords would have fared against major league teams, but it's safe to assume they were better than the Pittsburgh Pirates that year. The Pirates were a fourth-place club in 1935.

Country Superstar Eddy Arnold dies at 89 Eddy Arnold, whose mellow baritone on songs like 'Make the World Go Away', made him one of the most successful country singers in history, died this morning May 6,2008, days short of his 90th birthday. Arnold died at a care facility near Nashville. His wife of 66 years, Sally, had died in March, and in the same month, Arnold fell outside his home, injuring his hip. Arnold's vocals on songs like the 1965 "Make the World Go Away," one of his many No. 1 country hits and a top 10 hit on the pop charts, made him one of the most successful country singers in history. Folksy yet sophisticated, he became a pioneer of "The Nashville Sound," also called "countrypolitan," a mixture of country and pop styles. His crossover success paved the way for later singers such as Kenny Rogers. "I sing a little country, I sing a little pop and I sing a little folk, and it all goes together," he said in 1970. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1966. The following year he was the first person to receive the entertainer of the year award from the Country Music Association. The reference book "Top Country Singles 1944-1993," ranked Arnold the No. 1 country singer in terms of overall success on the Billboard country charts. It lists his first No. 1 hit as "It's a Sin," 1947, and for the following year ranks his "Bouquet of Roses" as the biggest hit of the entire year. Other hits included "Cattle Call,""The Last Word in Lonesome Is Me,""Anytime,""Bouquet of Roses,""What's He Doing in My World?""I Want to Go With You,""Somebody Like Me,""Lonely Again" and "Turn the World Around." Most of his hits were done in association with famed guitarist Chet Atkins, the producer on most of the recording sessions. The late Dinah Shore once described his voice as like "warm butter and syrup being poured over wonderful buttermilk pancakes." Reflecting on his career, he said he never copied anyone. 'I really had an idea about how I wanted to sing from the very beginning,' he said. He revitalized his career in the 1960s by adding strings, a controversial move for a country artist back then. 'I got to thinking, if I just took the same kind of songs I'd been singing and added violins to them, I'd have a new sound. They cussed me, but the disc jockeys grabbed it. ... The artists began to say, 'Aww, he's left us.' Then within a year, they were doing it!' Arnold was born May 15, 1918, on a farm near Henderson, Tenn., the son of a sharecropper. He sang on radio stations in Jackson, Tenn., Memphis, Tenn., and St. Louis before becoming nationally known. His image was always that of a modest, clean-cut country boy. 'You cannot satisfy all the people,' he once said. 'They have an image of me. Some people think I'm Billy Graham's half brother, but I'm not. I want people to get this hero thing off their mind and just let me be me.'

The Corvair in Action  1960 Chevrolet Promo Film Ralph Nader will be running for President again this election. His only claim to fame was taking this car off the market back in the 60s. I only bring this to your attention because one if not two generations have no idea who Ralph Nader is. Google his book that took this car off the road Unsafe at Any Speed and you will find so many saying Nader was wrong.

Lucille Ball in Roberta This is a shot from the 1935 black and white movie starring Irene Dunne as a deposed White Russian princess who has become a famed Parisian couturier. Dunne is the partner of "Roberta" (Helen Westley), who passes away, leaving her half of the business to American football player Randolph Scott—who of course knows next to nothing about the gown business, and couldn't care less anyway. Keep an eye out for a blond Lucille Ball as a fashion model. . .

Denver Broncos Vertical Striped Socks The most hideous sports uniforms of all time may have been donned by the American Football League's Denver Broncos in 1960 and 1961. The ugly mustard-colored jerseys were awful, but the true eyesores were the stirrup socks with vertical stripes. They were the idea of Dean Griffing, the Broncos' general manager, who insisted the unique socks made the players look taller. Perhaps, but they also unquestionably looked silly. The media derided them as 'clown socks.' So reviled was the hosiery that when the Broncos' uniforms got a complete makeover in 1962, more than 8,300 people attended a ceremony in which the socks were tossed into a large bonfire. A few pairs escaped the flames, though. One set is on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Some players retained their socks as keepsakes. An authentic pair is apparently worth $500 on the sports collectibles market.

Ivan Dixon of Hogans Heroes Fame dies at 76 Actor Ivan Dixon, who brought the problems and promise of contemporary blacks to life in the film "Nothing But a Man" and portrayed the levelheaded POW Kinchloe in TV's "Hogan's Heroes," has died. He was 76. Dixon died Sunday at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte after a hemorrhage, said his daughter, Doris Nomathande Dixon of Charlotte. He had suffered complications from kidney failure, she said. Dixon, who also directed scores of television shows, began his acting career in the late 1950s. He appeared on Broadway in William Saroyan's 1957 "The Cave Dwellers" and in playwright Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking 1959 drama of black life, "A Raisin in the Sun." In the latter, he played a Nigerian student visiting the United States, a role he repeated in the film version. While not a hit, the 1964 "Nothing But a Man," in which Dixon co-starred with Abbey Lincoln, also drew praise as a rare, early effort to bring the lives of black Americans to the big screen.
