Branch Rickey on Whats My Line Branch Rickey, one of baseball's greatest minds, was a mystery challenger on What's My Line on September 13, 1959. Rickey had twice revolutionized the game: He introduced the farm system in the 1920s. He also signed Jackie Robinson to a contract, effectively racially integrating the major leagues. Rickey's proposed Continental Baseball League never got off the ground, but it did prompt the exisitng major leagues to grant expansion franchises.

Radio Contest Death On January 12, 2007, Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old mother of three from Rancho Cordova, California pictured in the photo below, was found dead in her home by her mother. It was only a few hours after she had tried to win a Nintendo Wii game console on a radio contest. KDND 107.9 FM's Hold Your Wee for a Wii contest involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. The cause of Strange's death was determined to be a rare condition known as water intoxication--basically when too much water is consumed by a human being. Civil charges against the radio station were filed by Jennifer's family. They were eventually awarded $16.5 million in the ensuing wrongful death lawsuit. Everyone connected with the contest was fired from KDND. Oh, yeah...Strange did not win the contest.

Musical Chairs Game Show I haven't thought about this show for years: Musical Chairs. It was a short-lived music-based game show on CBS that ran for four months in 1975. It is somewhat culturally significant because its emcee, Adam Wade, was the first black game show host.

The Immaculate Reception The most talked about play in NFL history was the 'Immaculate Reception' in a 1972 Steelers-Raiders playoff game. Franco Harris caught a last-minute touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw. Under 1972 NFL rules, an offensive player could not legally catch a forward pass that had been last touched by a teammate. To this day a debate rages about who last touched the ball before Harris. Was it Jack Tatum of the Oakland Raiders or Frenchy Fuqua of the Pittsburgh Steelers? Judge for yourself.

The Pointer Sisters JUMP (OOps, I deleted by accident the first time!)This Pointer Sisters video of 'Jump' was released prior to the 1984 Summer Olympic games, and included footage of athletes competing in track and field events. The song was the second of four Billboard Hot 100 top 10 singles in a row for the sisters in 1984, and peaked at #3 in July. It also appeared on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart and reached the Top 10 in the UK, peaking at #6. The song netted the group a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1985

Steve Smith hockey blooper On April 30, 1986 Steve Smith of the Edmonton Oilers committed the ultimate hockey gaffe--he scored on his own net. Hey, it was only the deciding goal in the seventh game of a Stanley Cup playoff series!

Patrick Stefan Hockey blooper This is almost unbelievable. Patrick Stefan of the Dallas Stars fails to clinch a Stanley Cup playoff game with an empty-net goal that anyone's grandmother ought to be able to score. Worse, his gaffe turns into a tying goal for the Edmonton Oilers. (Dallas did eventually win the game in overtime, however.)

Rodney McCray baseball blooper Some of the best baseball bloopers don't occur at the major league level. Here's a good example: Vancouver's Rodney McCray, in a reckless attempt to catch a fly ball, literally runs through a wall during a Pacific Coast League game in Portland in 1991.

Match Game Sign Change The popular game show Match Game had a quaint tradition: A big deal was made when the year came to an end because the title of the show had to change. Accordingly, a new sign was introduced with great fanfare. This is the first such celebration as Match Game '73 became Match Game '74.

1924 Olympic Hockey Tournament The inaugural Winter Olympic Games in Chamonix, France in 1924 featured a hockey tournament that was far from competitive. The two North American teams handily crushed all European opposition. The eight-team event had Canada in one four-team pool and the United States in the other. The Canadians, comprised of amateur players solely from Toronto, won their first three games by ridiculous scores of 30-0, 33-0, and 22-0 versus Czecholslovakia, Switzerland, and Sweden respectively. The Americans were having an equally easy time vanquishing Belgium, France and Great Britain by a combined score of 65-0. In the semifinals Canada thumped Great Britain 19-2 while the United States whipped Sweden 20-0. Canada beat the US 6-1 in the gold-medal match. None of the champion Canadians ever played pro hockey. Canada's performance was so daunting that at the 1928 Winter Olympics, the Canadians were awarded an automatic bye to the finals while the other 10 teams battled each other to see which nation would get the honor of being pummelled. Switzerland emerged from the pack as the challenger--and promptly lost 11-0 to a team wholly comprised of students from the University of Toronto.
