Pitney Bowes Postage Meter Ad In 1953 running out of postage stamps was apparently grounds for justifiable homicide. No worries! The handy Pitney-Bowes postage meter will prevent office bloodshed.

Notre Dame Four Horsemen 1924 Notre Dame defeated Army 13-7 in a college football game on October 18, 1924. Grantland Rice of the New York Herald-Tribune began his eloquent report this way: 'Outlined against a blue-grey October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds this afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down upon the bewildering panorama spread out upon the green plain below.' Rice's article was terrific, but what really made Notre Dame's Four Horsemen famous was this photograph. Once the victorious Irish arrived back on campus, team publicity man George Strickler posed Harry Stuhldreher, Don Miller, Jim Crowley, and Elmer Layden atop horses borrowed from a local livery stable. The photograph was widely circulated and Notre Dame's 1924 backfield became legendary.

The Polo Grounds The Polo Grounds was the home stadium for baseball's New York Giants from 1883 to 1957. There were actually four stadiums that were called The Polo Grounds. This is the last and most famous. Its horseshoe shape created some odd dimensions. The foul lines ran for a mere 257 feet but the the distant center field bleachers were 505 feet away from home plate. This ballpark was where Willie Mays made his spectacular catch during the 1954 World Series and where Bobby Thomson hit baseball's most famous home run in 1951. Oh, yes: The first stadium was built for polo in 1876, but after the Giants acquired it for baseball in 1883, no polo matches were ever played there again.

The Conqueror- Nuked Many Actors Filmed near the site of contemporaneous nuclear testing grounds, the set was contaminated by nuclear fallout. After location shooting, much dirt from the location was transported back to Hollywood in order to match interior shooting done there. Scores of cast and crew members developed forms of cancer over the next two decades, many more than the normal percentage of a random group of this size. Quite a few died from cancer or cancer-related problems, including John Wayne, Susan Hayward, Pedro Armendáriz (who shot himself to death soon after learning he had terminal cancer), Agnes Moorehead, 'Thomas Gomez' , John Hoyt and director Dick Powell. People magazine researched the subsequent health of the cast and crew, which it published in November 1980. By the time of the article's publication, 91 of the 220 members of the film's cast and crew had contracted cancer, and half of these had died from the disease. The figures did not include several hundred local American Indians who served as extras on the set. Nor did it include relatives who had visited cast and crew members on the set, such as the Duke's son Michael Wayne. The People article quoted the reaction of a scientist from the Pentagon's Defense Nuclear Agency to the news: "Please, God, don't let us have killed John Wayne".

Osceola Flies Again This is Osceola and John Stokes. Osceola was shot in the 1980s and because of that had to have his wing amputated. He would have never been able to fly again if it wasn't for John. I met John & Osce at the American Eagle Foundation in Tenn. where my cousin works. John wanted to give Osce a chance to fly again. It's a beautiful story. The bird on my arm in my avatar is an eagle from the AEF. The AEF is on the grounds of Dollywood in Pigeon Forge.

Ingemar Johansson on Whats My Line This clip is from June 19, 1960. World heavyweight champion Ingemar Johansson appears as a mystery challenger on What's My Line the night before he defended his world heavyweight championship at the Polo Grounds against Floyd Patterson. Johansson had defeated Patterson in an upset in 1959. The rematch was Johansson's only title defense. Patterson won by a fifth-round knockout to regain the crown. (Perhaps Ingo should have been resting instead of appearing on live TV.)

1903 World Series Photo One of my favorite sports photos. It was taken at Boston's Huntington Avenue Base Ball Grounds sometime during the 1903 World Series. Some captions claim it was taken before the first game. Other captions claim it was taken after the seventh game. Notice the fans standing behind ropes in the outfield. This was a common practise in those days to squeeze more paying customers into sold out games. Special ground rules had to be made to deal with batted balls that flew or rolled into the crowd.

Dempsey-Firpo Fight 1923 Quite simply this was the wildest world heavyweight tile fight of all time: Jack Dempsey defends his title versus Argentina's Luis Firpo at New York City's Polo Grounds on September 14, 1923. This edited version of the events doesn't tell the whole story. There were actually nine knockdowns in the first round and two more in the second! In an Associated Press poll in 1950, sports writers declared this bout to be the most exciting sports contest in the first half of the twentieth century.

South End Grounds - Boston This is a photo of one of the great ballparks of the 19th century: South End Grounds, the home of Boston's National League club. Having a short distance to both foul poles and a vast center field, the park opened to great acclaim on May 25, 1888. It was actually the second of three ballparks to bear that name. Nearly six years later, on May 15, 1894, the mostly wooden park burned to the ground during a game. (Police placed the blame on kids playing with matches under the bleachers.) Another 117 buildings in the neighborhood also were destroyed in the fire. The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has a fabulous computerized 'virtual exhibit' on this ballpark based on photographic evidence.
