Orphan Trains The Orphan Train was a social experiment that transported children from crowded coastal cities of the United States to the country's Midwest for adoption. The orphan trains ran between 1854 and 1929, relocating an estimated 200,000 orphaned, abandoned, or homeless children. At the time the orphan train movement began, it was estimated that 30,000 vagrant children were living on the streets of New York City. Two charity institutions, The Children's Aid Society (established by Charles Loring Brace) and The New York Foundling Hospital, determined to help these children. The two institutions developed a program that placed homeless city children into homes throughout the country. The children were transported to their new homes on trains which were eventually labeled 'orphan trains.' This period of mass relocation of children in the United States is widely recognized as the beginning of documented foster care in America. Two future governors (John Green Brady of Alaska and Andrew Burke of North Dakota) were orphan train passengers.

North American Soccer League The North American Soccer League was supposed to be the 'next big thing' in sports. It lasted 17 seasons but it failed to dislodge the traditional team sports from their longtime perch as fan favorites. The league began in 1968 with the merger of two small pro leagues and lasted until 1984. At the peak of the NASL's popularity in the late 1970s, it had 24 teams. The New York Cosmos (who featured Pele and Franz Beckenbauer on their roster) sometimes drew 70,000 fans to Giants Stadium. However, the league average never exceeded 15,000 fans per game and some teams struggled to draw 5,000. By its last season, the NASL had dwindled to nine teams. By the time the final NASL game was played between the Chicago Sting and Toronto Blizzard, only three teams were solvent. To Europeans, the NASL was perceived as soccer's version of an elephants' graveyard where players long past their primes could extend their careers for sizable money. The Euro stars, despite their diminishing skills, accounted for large chunks of teams' payrolls that could have been better spent fostering North American talent. Traditionalists were also put off by the NASL's gimmicks to Americanize the sport: a liberalized offside rule, game clocks that counted downward instead of upward, penalty shootouts to break ties, and a crazy points system that rewarded goals scored as well as wins. In the end, the NASL managed to alienate traditional soccer fans while failing to attract new ones.

Lets Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn When stories started to circulate in 1957 that the Brooklyn Dodgers were going to relocate to Los Angeles, this Phil Foster song was released to plead the case of the Brooklynites. It didn't work.

Bare-Faced Goalie Harry Lumley Struck by Puck From an April 7, 1959 Stanley Cup playoff game between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Garden: Bruins' goalie Harry Lumley is struck in the face with a rising backhand shot from Dick Duff. Two of Lumley's teeth are knocked out and a gash is opened around Lumley's mouth that required seven stitches to close. Lumley continues to play for about half a minute until the puck is frozen before seeking medical attention. (Lumley's face must have been a gory sight; check out the horrified female spectator near the Boston bench covering her eyes!) Lumley returned to finish the game. Men were men back then! Foster Hewitt provides the commentary.

Lumpy Rutherford - Teachers Daughter Climax We recently lost Frank Bank, the actor who played Clarence (Lumpy) Rutherford on Leave It To Beaver. Here is the climactic moment of an episode titled Teacher's Daughter that first aired on January 7, 1961. In this one, Wally is dating pretty Julie Foster, who happens to be the daughter of one of his teachers. Wally and Julie break up--so Wally assumes his grades from Mr. Foster will take a beating. Conversely, Lumpy starts dating Julie with the expectation of his grades moving higher. Will it happen? Let's see...

Citizen Kane - Final Scene This is the final scene of what many film critics consider the greatest movie ever made: Citizen Kane (1941). The movie begins with the lonely death of Charles Foster Kane (based on the life of William Randolph Hearst) in his vast gated mansion. Kane's dying word was "Rosebud!" A reporter wants to know the significance of the word so he tracks down and interviews colleagues of the deceased great man. Kane's life is shown in retrospect from childhood until his death. Kane's mother had run a boarding house in Colorado. She acquired the deed to a mine in lieu of payment from a boarder. The mine provided enormous wealth for young Kane who lived a life of privilege and became famous as a mud-raking newspaper baron and a scandal-plagued failed political candidate. So what's the significance of Rosebud? It was the name of his sled he had when he was an ordinary child. It means everything...or nothing at all. It's up to the viewer to decide.

Cincinnati Reds Comeback - 1972 NLCS The ballgame isn't over until the last man is out! That adage proved to be very true in the fifth and deciding game of the 1972 National League Championship Series. The Pittsburgh Pirates, the defending World Series champs from 1971, led the hometown Cincinnati Reds 3-2 going into the bottom of the ninth inning. Reliever Dave Giusti entered the game to shut down the Reds. As this brief clip shows, the Reds would not be denied. Johnny Bench tied the game with a leadoff home run. Tony Perez singled and was replaced by pinch-runner George Foster. Another single by Denis Menke advanced Foster to second base and drove Giusti from the mound. He was replaced by Bob Moose. Cesar Geronimo flied out to Roberto Clemente in right field, which advanced Foster to third base. Darrel Chaney popped out. Hal McRae, pinch-hitting for Reds' pitcher Clay Carroll, stepped into the batter's box. Moose uncorked a wild pitch. Foster scored and the Reds were on their way to the World Series. Nobody knew it at the time, but Roberto Clemente had played his last game. He died in a plane crash on New Year's Eve. Bob Moose met an untimely end too: He died in a car crash on his 29th birthday in 1976. By the way, do you recognize the radio announcer? It is Al Michaels.
