Ann Meyers Ann Meyers made sports history in 1979 when she inked a deal with the Indiana Pacers, becoming the first female NBA player. She didn't last long. She was cut before the regular season started. Her signing was widely considered to be a publicity stunt. Red Auerbach of the Boston Celtics commented, 'I know Annie, and she's a nice girl, but this is reminiscent of Bill Veeck signing that midget.'

The Twilight Zone In my opinion, one of the top series of this genre ever produced for television, the original TZ aired from 1959 to 1964. Rod Serling invited viewers to submit a script. He was flooded with over 14,000, and actually got around to reading 500 of them, but only two were any good, and he couldn't use them because they didn't fit with the format of the show. CBS originally wanted Orson Welles as the narrator/host, but the producers felt that he asked for too much money. I just can't imagine anyone but Rod Serling narrating this series, it was his baby from the start. He made up the phrase 'Fifth Dimension' to use in one season's opening narration, stating that he wanted to go one beyond the four known dimensions. A reporter once asked him what the fourth dimension was, (given the first three are length, width, and height). Serling supposedly answered, 'I don't know. Aren't there four?' Hey, if he thought so, that would have been good enough for me!

USS Forrestal Burns- July 29 1969 This is clipped from Trial by Fire: A Carrier Burns, a 1973 film produced by the United States Navy about the devastating 1967 fire aboard USS Forrestal off the coast of Vietnam. The film is unique in that it was produced from actual footage of the fire and emergency response efforts, both successful and unsuccessful, taken by on board cameras. Due to the first bomb blast killing nearly all of the specially trained firefighters on the ship, the remaining crew, who had no formal firefighting training, had to improvise. Though there were many firefighting tools available on the Forrestal, including emergency respirators, the general crew was not trained in their use and so were unable to use them correctly. In response to this tragedy, recommendations made were: development of a remote-control fire-fighting system for the flight deck, development of more stable ordnance, improvement in survival equipment, and increased training in emergency response and fire survival. This film has been used to teach new recruits firefighting and emergency response lessons learned in the mishap.

Patches - Dickie Lee 1962 I have an old friend that I have not seen in a lot of years. He named his first daughter Patches because he loved this song so much. She would be about 40 years old today.

Righteous Brothers - You ve Lost That Lovin  Feeling According to Wikipedia "The Righteous Brothers started their career on Moonglow with two moderate hits: "Little Latin Lupe Lu" and "My Babe" in 1963, as well as two albums. Both songs received airplay, but their first major hit single would be "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" on the Philles label in 1965. Produced by Phil Spector, the record is often cited as one of the peak expressions of Spector's Wall of Sound production techniques. It was one of the most successful pop singles of its time, despite exceeding the standard length for radio play. Indeed, according to BMI, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" remains the most played song in radio history, estimated to have been broadcast more than eight million times. A little known fact is that Spector used Cher (of Sonny & Cher fame) as a backup singer on this and other recordings." Whatever...I still get goosebumps listening to it... Ronnie

Stella Walsh Gender Controversy Stella Walsh was one of the first female Olympic heroes--but she could never shake the accusations that she was really a man. The masculine-looking Walsh was born in Poland in 1911 and came to the United States before her first birthday. Naturally gifted at sports, she won track and field contests sponsored by a Cleveland newspaper that were supposed to lead to a place on the 1928 American Olympic team. However, the immigration laws of the era said Walsh could not become an American citizen until the age of 21. She toured her homeland in the early 1930s and became hugely popular. She competed for Poland at the 1932 summer Olympics in Los Angeles and won gold in the women's 100 metres. At the 1936 Olympics she finished second to Helen Stephens, who, ironically, had to undergo a medical examination to prove she was a female. In November 1980, television station WKYC was heavily criticized for airing a story that questioned Walsh's gender. A month later the 69-year-old Walsh was murdered in a botched armed robbery at a Cleveland mall. Through a court order, WKYC obtained the coroner's report to vindicate their earlier claims. It said Walsh had male sex organs, no female sex organs, and both XX and XY pairs of chromosomes.

Battle of Passchendaele 70th Anniversary Survivors of the appalling First World War Battle of Passchendaele gather at the site 70 years later in 1987. (For my money, the First World War was the most dreadful conflict in human history. Imagine, a battle to gain five muddy miles that cost 250,000 casualties!) Sixteen thousand Canadians were among the killed or wounded.

Eye Guess 1968 This is an 8.5-minute clip of an NBC game show, Eye Guess, that ran from 1966 through 1969. (This particular episode is from 1968.) Hosted by Bill Cullen, this daytime program tested contestants on general knowledge plus their abilities to memorize. The first part of the clip is the bonus round for a winning contestant. The second half is the actual game part: After observing a board containing the answers to eight upcoming questions for eight seconds, the contestants had to choose the location of the answers when the corresponding questions were asked.
