Pete Maravich Dies at Age 40 The greatest college basketball player in history was Louisiana State University's Pete Maravich. He still holds the career NCAA scoring record despite playing in an era when freshmen were ineligible and there was no three-point line on the court. In a 1973 Sports Illustrated interview, Maravich championed proper diet and exercise. He said, 'I don't want to die of a heart attack when I'm 40.' On January 6, 1988 Maravich collapsed after a session of pick-up basketball in a church gymnasium. The cause of death: heart failure. He was 40 years old. Maravich's last words were, 'I feel great.'

Halifax Explosion On December 6th of 1917, the worst pre atom bomb explosion in history occured in Halifax NS. Two ships, the Imo, and munitions ship the Mont Blanc collided in the Halifax harbor, and within 10 minutes, the Mont Blanc was ablaze, and the explosion took place about 25 minutes after that, at approx. 9:05 AM. The top picture was taken about 15 to 20 seconds after the blast from 21 kilometers away, The bottom picture is 2 days following the devastation, with the Imo shipwrecked in the harbor about mid picture. It is estimated about 2000 lives were lost, and without the help of train dispatcher Vince Coleman, who lost his life in the blast, more would have died as a passenger train from here in Saint John was expected to arrive in Halifax momentarily. Mr. Coleman sent a warning via Morse Code stating, "Stop trains. Munitions ship on fire. Approaching Pier 6. Goodbye",and would not stop until he recieved a message back from the train. Mr. Coleman saved about 300 lives, but lost his own due to his heroism.

Christmas Truce 1914 One of the most remarkable incidents in history was the impromptu truce that took place on the Western Front on Christmas Day 1914. Beginning late on Christmas Eve, the entrenched British and German troops began serenading each other with songs and carols. By the next day a full truce was on, with soldiers and officers from both sides fraternizing and exchanging gifts. There was even an international soccer match played with teams comprised of warring soldiers. On December 26, 1914 the First World War started again. How sad. Ninety-four years later, in 2008, soldiers from the same opposing regiments reenacted the famous Christmas Truce in the same location.

Stanley Cup Engraving Error 1981 The Stanley Cup is unique among major sports trophies in that the players, coaches and management of the winning teams have their names engraved on it. The engraver who did the job in 1981 needed a proofreader. Look how he misspelled 'Islanders.' Eleven other engraving errors have been made on the Cup in its long history.

Canadas Most Famous Photo Here's a good question for this website's regulars: What's the most famous photograph in American history? Is it the flag-raising at Iwo Jima? Is it the VJ Day kiss in New York City. Is it Lee Harvey Oswald getting shot? How about the grieving girl at Kent State? There are probably a dozen photos that merit consideration. In Canada we have no such debate. This is it: Frank Orr's photo of Paul Henderson celebrating his series wining goal in Moscow in 1972. Orr got rich from its countless reprints.
