2003 Masters Tournament Protest In 2003, the National Organization of Women, led by Martha Burk (pictured here), staged a protest at the Masters Golf Tournament because the host club, Augusta National Golf Club, only accepts male members. Burk got more than she bargained for. Enterprising vendors began selling golf balls with Burk's face on them above the phrase 'The Burk Stops Here!' Augusta's city council passed a law restricting protesters to a vacant lot about a mile from the golf course. Counter-protests began, and they begot more protests. Jesse Jackson supported Burk, so a group of anti-Jackson protesters picketed him. A chapter of the KKK--which turned out to be a one-man outfit--supported Augusta National. Weirdos and attention-seekers of all types flocked to the protest site. One man wore a tuxedo and carried a sign that said, 'Formal Protest.' Another man with an anti-feminist slant carried a placard saying, 'Make My Dinner.' Another group called People Against Ridiculous Protests picketed everybody. Perhaps the most noteworthy and creative protester was a gentlemen who loudly passed gas from the window of a moving minivan when Burk began to speak. Pun-loving Steve Rushin of Sports Illustrated comically referred to the gesture as a 'drive-by tooting.'

Jesse Ventura 1998 Campaign Ad In 1998 former wrestling villain Jesse (The Body) Ventura ran for governor of Minnesota. He wasn't exactly a political newcomer. Ventura had been elected mayor of Brooklyn Park, MN in 1991 and served until 1995. However, nobody gave Ventura much of a chance to win the gubernatorial election--but he did, despite only spending about $300,000 on his election campaign. Here's one of Ventura's low-budget camapign commercials that made him the 'governing body' of Minnesota.

Jesse Jackson Paternity Scandal 2001 There's nothing more satisfying than seeing a prominent man of the cloth get caught with his pants down. In 2001, the Reverend Jesse Jackson was the latest in a long line of notable preachers to be caught doing some unholy business with thy rod and thy staff. Jackson, a father of five who had been married since 1962, admitted to fathering a daughter with Karin Stanford in 1999. He was 58 years old at the time. Stanford was the head of Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH office in Washington, D.C. The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition had paid several thousand dollars in hush money disguised as 'moving and contracting expenses' to Stanford. When the story broke, another $40,000 in hush money intended for Stanford was stopped. The scandal drove the omnipresent Jackson out of the public eye for several months, but, as this doctored photo shows, it didn't stop people from cackling.

Bill Gallo Passes at age 88 Bill Gallo, a cartoonist and columnist for the New York Daily News, whose playful characters included that of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner as General Von Steingrabber, has died. He was 88. Gallo, who worked for the paper for seven decades, died Tuesday from complications of pneumonia at White Plains Hospital, the News reported Tuesday. "His death closed a chapter in the storied history of The News," said Daily News Chairman and publisher Mortimer Zuckerman told the paper. "The passing of our great cartoonist, colleague and friend Bill Gallo marks the end of an era." Gallo profiled in ink and sometimes in words most of the great sports figures of the past century, going back to Jack Dempsey, Man O' War, Jesse Owens and Dizzy Dean and his St. Louis Cardinals' Gas House Gang. The latter were his secret heroes, he told The Associated Press in an interview in 2000, secret because he devoted a lifetime at a drawing bo ard to amusing New York's rabidly loyal sports fans.

Condo -  1983 Sitcom Disaster McLean Stevenson's sixth and final sitcom in the space of 15 years was the short-lived ABC show Condo, which aired for four months in 1983. The premise of the show was that James Kirkridge (Stevenson), a middle-aged insurance salesman, was experiencing a gradual reversal in finances. Accordingly, his family had to downgrade their lifestyle so much that he and his wife Kiki (Brooke Alderson) had to sell their rambling, palatial house in the suburbs and downsize. Jesse Rodriguez (Luis Avalos), an upwardly mobile native of the Los Angeles barrio, had recently become a successful owner of a landscaping business, enabling he and his wife Maria (Yvonne Wilder) to trade up to a more upscale neighborhood. Both couples ended up purchasing condominium units right outside a quaint Los Angeles-area fairway, and became each other's not-so-neighborly next-door neighbors. The Kirkridges initially mistook the Rodriguezes as the condo's groundskeepers. When Jesse informed them that he and his clan were in fact owners of the condo next door, weariness and bigotry ensued, mostly from staunch traditionalist James. Kiki, slightly daffy but strong enough to keep James from stepping too much out of line, was a little more accepting of her Hispanic neighbors, but often experienced culture shock causing occasional friction between her and feisty Maria. There was a Romeo-and-Juliet aspect to the show: The older Kirkridge son fell in love with and married the Rodriguez daughter. Condo was rare for its time as it had an animated opening sequence. Disliked by TV critics and viewers alike, Condo was yanked by ABC after just 13 episodes. Marc Price, who played the younger Kirkridge son, moved on to play Skippy Handelman, the Keatons' awkward yet lovable next-door-neighbor in Family Ties.

Jesse James Exhumation - 1995 Notorious outlaw Jesse James was shot to death at close range by Bob Ford, a fellow gang member, on April 3, 1882. Ford had hoped to collect a sizable reward by offing James. Instead, Ford got himself a first-degree murder conviction--for which he was swiftly pardoned--and a place in western folklore. Rumors began almost immediately that James' death had been faked and he was living quietly away from the limelight. In 1995--some 113 years after a bullet entered his skull, James' body was exhumed from its supposed final resting place in Kearney, MO so DNA samples could be matched against those of his living descendants. The tests scientifically proved that the man buried in James' grave was, in fact, Jesse James. Locals cashed in on the exhumation frenzy by selling t-shirts to curiosity seekers that said, "We dig Jesse!"

Luz Long Helps Jesse Owens At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Jesse Owens won four gold medals. His toughest struggle was in the long jump. Owens was the overwhelming favorite to win the event, but he fouled on his first two attempts. A third foul would eliminate him. Germany's Luz Long, the European long jump champion, went out of his way to assist the discouraged Owens. Long (who had set a new Olympic record with one of his qualifying jumps) informed Owens that he could easily qualify for the finals by leaping several inches behind the foul line. Owens followed Long's advice--leaping with at least four inches to spare--and qualified for the long jump finals. In the finals, the Olympic record was broken five times. Owens had the longest leap and won the gold medal. Long was the first to congratulate him. Owens and Long became friends. Long was killed serving with the German army in Sicily in 1943. Long was posthumously awarded the Coubertin Medal for Sportsmanship by the IOC. After the war, Long's widow and son continued to regularly correspond with Owens until his death in 1973.
