WTTW Chicago  Max Headroom Pirating Incident During a broadcast of the Dr. Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" on WTTW Chicago Channel 11, on Sunday November 22nd, 1987, at around 11:15pm, a Video "Pirate" wearing a Max Headroom mask broke into the signal and transmitted one of the weirdest, unauthorized things ever to hit the Chicago airwaves. Earlier in the evening on the same day, during the Nine O'Clock News on Channel 9 (Yes, a completely different channel) the Max Headroom Pirate also broke in - although it was for a much shorter time and there was no audio. Needless to say, Dan Rohn (the sports reporter) was a bit flustered. And no, he was never caught.

When Hockey Goalies Wore No Masks This is a photo of Montreal Canadiens' goalie Jacques Plante. It was taken on November 1, 1959, a few minutes after Plante's bare face met a slapshot fired by Andy Bathgate of the New York Rangers. Plante doesn't have a beard--that's congealed blood on his face! Each NHL team only carried one goalie in those days. Plante refused to return to the net unless he was allowed to wear his newfangled fiberglass face mask.

Iroquois Theater Fire 1903 The deadliest fire in American history occurred on December 30, 1903 at Chicago's sparkling new Iroquois Theater. The death toll was staggering: 602. The theater had only been open for 37 days and was ironically advertised as fireproof. A huge crowd of mostly women and children were present for a Wednesday matinee performance of a gala show starring Eddie Foy and featuring a cast of more than 500 extras. The fire began when a spotlight shorted out and ignited the ceiling decorations. Most of the cast managed to escape through a large rear door. However, when that door opened, the new cold oxygen source created a fireball that ripped through the rest of the theater. Many people died because they were unfamiliar with the newfangled lock mechanisms on the theater's doors. Other escape routes were blocked to prevent patrons from sneaking down to more expensive seats. An investigation later showed that fire officials had been bribed to overlook safety concerns so the theater could open for business in time for the lucrative winter holidays. The only person convicted of a crime was a lone man who was found guilty of stealing posessions from the dead.
