1967 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 3 OT The year 1967 was Canada's centennial, so it was somewhat fitting that the two Canadian NHL teams would meet in that year's Stanley Cup final. The 1966-67 NHL season was also the last year of the old six-team league; the following season the league would double in size to 12 clubs. Here are some highlights from the two overtime periods from Game #3 at Maple Leaf Gardens. It seems from another world: NHL players with no helmets, two barefaced goalies, no advertising on the boards or on the ice, and end-to-end excitement in a critical game! Bill Hewitt and Brian McFarlane call the action. The Toronto Maple Leafs would beat the Montreal Canadiens in six games to win the Stanley Cup. Toronto has not even been in the Cup finals in all the years since 1967.

Garo Yepremian Super Bowl Blunder Super Bowl VII in January 1973 pitted the invincible Miami Dolphins against the Washington Redskins. Miami went into the game undefeated--and came out that way too. However, the game was closer than it should have been thanks to the unforgettable and comical blunder made by Miami placekicker Garo Yepremian. As this clips shows, Yepremian's field goal attempt was blocked. He then picked up the ball and tried to make a pass (albeit an illegal one). As you can plainly see, the Cypriot-born kicker had no clue what he was doing. Yepremian died recently at the age of 70.

Canada Beats USSR - 1955 IIHF Tourney The International Ice Hockey Federation has been holding world championship tourneys since 1908. Prior to 1977 the events operated as strictly amateur tourneys much like the Olympic Games once did. Canada typically sent local teams to the IIHF championship and still routinely dominated the tourneys against European national teams. In 1954 the Soviet Union sent a team to world championship for the first time and surprised Canada 7-2 to win the title in Stockholm. With the tournament being held in West Germany in 1955, Canada sent its national amateur finalist team--the Penticton (BC) Vees--to regain national honor. Nine teams competed in the round-robin event. Both the Soviet Union and Canada were 7-0 going into their meeting, so the winner would get the gold medals. The crowd in Krefeld, West Germany included numerous Canadian military personnel stationed nearby along with boisterous German locals who hated all things Russian. The Vees--led by the three Warwick brothers--won handily, 5-0. The Canadian team only allowed six goals in eight games. Here is about a minute of silent newsreel footage of the last game--including two Canadian goals. There's a terrific monument in Penticton that honors the 1955 Vees. History does repeat itself: Sixty years later Canada won the 2015 tourney by defeating the Russians again by five goals. This time the score was 6-1.

Andrew Shaw Disallowed Headbutt Goal From Game #2 of the 2015 NHL Western Conference finals, Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Blackhawks 'scores' an overtime goal against the Anaheim Ducks with a creative soccer-style header. It was a play that few fans had ever seen before--and many wondered if it was a legal way to score a goal. It's not. By rule a goal cannot be scored if the puck is deliberately directed into the net with anything other than a player's stick. The goal was properly disallowed. However, many fans think the rules ought to be amended to allow such a play to count as a legitimate goal. Chicago won the game with a goal that actually counted in the third overtime period. This clip is from Hockey Night in Canada's coverage of the game.

1985 NBA Draft Lottery Conspiracy Many NBA fans steadfastly claim that the league's first draft lottery, held in 1985, was rigged. Prior to 1985, the two teams that finished in last place in the NBA's two conferences used a coin toss to determine which of the bottom-feeders would pick first overall in the collegiate draft that summer. This practice led to the accusation that some teams that had little hope of being competitive were deliberately tanking games to get in on the coin toss. To make tanking a less attractive proposition, the NBA instituted a 'draft lottery' in 1985 in which the seven teams that did not qualify for the playoffs had an equal chance of getting the first overall pick. In 1985 that selection would obviously be used to choose Patrick Ewing of Georgetown University who had led the Hoyas to three berths in the NCAA final in four years. Even before the draft was held there was scuttlebutt that the NBA would rig the draw so that the New York Knicks, the team with the biggest TV market, would get the #1 pick. The lottery was held at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. CBS televised the lottery between halves of a playoff game. As this clip shows, it was a very simplistic lottery. Seven sealed envelopes, each containing a team's logo, were put into a transparent sphere drum. The drum was spun. Commissioner David Stern selected the seven envelopes one at a time for the one to seven draft slots in that order. Almost immediately conspiracy theorists argued the draw had been rigged in favor of the Knicks. The fourth envelope tossed into the drum contained the Knicks' logo. It ended up with a bent corner because it was tossed into the drum more strongly than the other envelopes. Some cynics even claim the Knicks' envelope was frozen so Commissioner Stern would select the coldest envelope first! Others point out that the law firm responsible for overseeing the fairness of the lottery had a financial interest in the Knicks. Interestingly, the team that ended up with the seventh pick, Golden State, had the worst record in the NBA in 1984-85. In previous years they would have gotten no worse than the second pick. David Stern has always scoffed at the idea that the 1985 lottery was rigged. Watch for yourself and decide if anything was amiss.

Death of Don Drysdale Announced Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale--who became an excellent broadcaster in his post-baseball-playing days--died suddenly on July 3, 1993. As part of the Los Angeles Dodgers' broadcast team, Drysdale's colleagues became alarmed when he was uncharacteristically absent for the team's game in Montreal that night. Drysdale was found dead in his hotel room. He was a few weeks shy of his 57th birthday. A coroner estimated he had been dead for about 18 hours. Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully knew about Drysdale's death but was told not to mention it on the air until Drysdale's wife had been informed. Here's how Vin Scully calmly informed the viewers back in LA about the sad situation. In contrast Scully's announcement is followed by Chicago White Sox broadcaster Ken Harrelson's emotional announcement that same night.

Bowling Stars - Billy Welu vs. Johnny King (Part 2 of 2) "Bowling Stars" was a filmed, syndicated TV series that aired in the 1950s pitting two top professional bowlers in a three-game match, with the winner decided by total pinfall. The final frames of the second match and the entirety of the third match were shown. This week's episode shows reigning champion Billy Welu against Johnny King. "Whispering" Joe Wilson, who was the original play-by-play voice on the early "Championship Bowling" episodes, calls the action. Originally telecast in 1957 from Faetz-Niesen Recreation Center* in Chicago. *More recently known as Ridge Bowl.

It Takes Two - Forgotten Game Show NBC came up with a new idea for a daytime game show in 1969 called It Takes Two. Three teams of celebrity couples participated. Each team member had to provide an independent numerical answer to a question asked by host...Vin Scully! (Scully is the greatest baseball announcer of all time; this point is not debatable.) Each team's two answers would be condensed to an average. A contestant, often located in an NBC studio in another city, would then guess which couple came closest to the true answer. If he/she were successful, a prize or cash would be awarded. It Takes Two debuted on March 31, 1969 and ran until July 31, 1970. Its airtime was supposed to be weekdays at 10 a.m. across the country, but many NBC affiliates shuffled it around on their schedules in favor of local programming. Here's a ten-minute clip from a 1970 episode. It Takes Two was briefly revived in 1997 on The Family Channel and was hosted by Dick Clark.
