Jean Vander Pyl Grave Marker Since we've been doing a lot of reminiscing about The Flintstones, I thought I'd post a photo of the grave marker of Jean Vander Pyl (the voice of Wilma Flintstone) at Ascension Cemetery in Lake Forest, California. Notice the small picture of Wilma inset beside the image of the deceased!

1929 Wightman Cup Tennis Here's some great old silent newsreel footage of the 1929 Wightman Cup tennis matches at Forest Hills between the best American and British female players. The focus is on Helen Wills, one of the greatest tennis champions ever.

Connors Vs Borg 1976 Two minutes from the 1976 U.S. Open men's final between Jimmy Connors and Bjorn Borg. This was the second of only three years when the U.S. Open was played on clay courts at Forest Hills. Personally I like these old matches better than today's tennis. The server wasn't as dominant and the players had to craft the points back then.

Margaret Court Wins Grand Slam Here is a historic sports clip: The last four games of the 1970 U.S. Open women's singles final at Forest Hills. Margaret (Smith) Court thumps Rosie Casals to capture the Grand Slam. Only one other female had achieved the feat previously: Maureen Connolly in 1953. Only one woman has done it since: Steffi Graf in 1988. Bud Collins and Billie Jean King provide the commentary. (Check out Bud's trousers! He was always a flashy dresser.)

The Big Parade - Forest Scene One of the great war movies ever made was The Big Parade (1925) starring John Gilbert. This scene, in which the American doughboys steadfastly march through the enemy-infested forest, is still mesmerizing after all these years.

Hillsborough Disaster - 1989 One of the world's most senseless sporting disasters took place on Saturday, April 15, 1989 at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England. That afternoon 96 soccer fans were crushed to death before and during the early minutes of an FA Cup semifinal between Liverpool FC and Nottingham Forest FC. The stadium was a neutral site, but Liverpool had thousands more fans than Nottingham Forest who sought tickets. As is the custom, the two teams' fans were segregated. The Liverpool supporters were generally assigned standing-room tickets on the south terraces--enclosures surrounded by security fences. With the Liverpool terraces already dangerously overcrowded, the situation became exponentially worse when the police outside the stadium, fearing trouble, ordered an exit gate to be opened and 2,000 more fans rushed into the enclosures bypassing the turnstiles. The crush of the crowd caused fans already inside to be pushed and squeezed against the heavy metal fences and die of suffocation. Despite the constant pleas from fans for the police to open security gates to alleviate the pressure, the police on the other side of the fences did nothing. Some fans tried to escape by climbing into an upper deck. Others tried to scale the security fences. About six minutes into the match, the fans in the overcrowded terraces spilled over and through the fences causing the game to be stopped. Most of the fatalities died on the pitch without ever getting to a hospital. A coroner's report suggested that perhaps 40 of the fatalities could have been prevented with quick medical attention. Yet only two ambulances ever entered the stadium while others were stuck in a bottleneck outside the venue. Even with injured and dying fans being brought onto the pitch, most police officers were inexplicably more concerned with preventing rival Forest supporters from entering the field than assisting the injured. Initial reports wrongly blamed drunken and unruly fans for the catastrophe while exonerating the police's actions and inactions. Wildly inaccurate stories about fans pickpocketing the dead and interfering with rescue efforts were published in The Sun tabloid--a newspaper which is largely boycotted in Liverpool to this day. Later investigations indicated that a whitewash of the incident was orchestrated by the police, and rightly placed the blame on a paucity of law enforcement outside the stadium and a lack of police action when the situation on the terraces became dangerous. The ages of those killed ranged from 10 to 72. Eighty-nine of the 96 were males. One 10-year-old who died was the cousin of Steven Gerrard, who would later become Liverpool's captain. Terraces disappeared from most large British soccer venues shortly thereafter.

Patsy Cline Plane Crash - 1963 Patsy Cline, one of the most influential female singers in country music history, was tragically killed in an airplane crash in Camden, TN on March 5, 1963. She was 30 years old. Her last performance had occurred two days earlier in Kansas City, KS at a benefit for the family of a popular radio deejay who had died in an automobile mishap in January. Cline's plane was headed towards Nashville, TN. After a stopover in Dyersburg, TN, the plane, a small Piper Comanche, took off for the final leg of the journey at 6:07 p.m. It vanished about 15 minutes later. Three other performers--Cowboy Copas, Hankshaw Hawkins, and Randy Hughes (the pilot)--also perished. The airplane encountered severe storm conditions which almost certainly contributed to the crash. It was later learned that Hughes was not trained for instrument flying and was likely trying to make an emergency landing on a nearby highway. Instead the plane crashed nose-first into a remote forested area. The wreckage was discovered by a Cline fan early the next morning who had searched for it after hearing radio reports that Cline's plane had likely gone down. The crash site has changed very little in the five decades since Cline's untimely death. According to friends, Cline sensed her impending doom, and made comments as early as September 1962 that she didn't expect to live much longer. Shortly before her death, Cline gave away treasured personal belongings and hastily wrote her will.

Rod Laver Wins 1969 Grand Slam Here are a few highlights from the last set of the 1969 men's singles final at the U.S. Open. Rod Laver's four-set victory over fellow left-handed Australian Tony Roche meant Laver won all four major championships (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open) in one calendar year. No other male has achieved that feat in the Open Era of tennis. Laver's backhand is beautiful to behold. Check out how rough the grass courts were at Forest Hills that rainy year! Grass court players often wore spikes then. The score of the final was 7-9, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. It was the last year at the U.S. Open when tiebreakers weren't played.

Connors-Rosewall 1974 U.S. Open Final Twenty-two-year-old Jimmy Connors showed that experience was no match for youth in the 1974 U.S. Open final. He throttled 39-year-old Ken Rosewall 6-1, 6-0, 6-1 in the last men's final ever played on the grass courts at Forest Hills. Here are some moments from the first and last games of the third set. Connors had beaten Rosewall almost as easily in the Wimbledon final two months earlier. The Grand Slam tourney remained at Forest Hills for another three years, but the surface was changed to clay. In 1978 the U.S. Open moved to its present and more spacious venue at Flushing Meadows, NY with its hard courts. Connors earned $22,500 for winning the 1974 event--pocket change by today's lofty standards.
