Eliot Spitzer Scandal Eliot Spitzer was the governor of New York for a little over a year before a call girl scandal forced his resignation. On March 10, 2008, The New York Times reported that Spitzer had patronized a high-priced prostitution service called Emperors Club VIP and met for over two hours with a $1,000-an-hour call girl going by the name Ashley Alexandra Dupré, pictured here. (Her legal name: Ashley Rae Maika DiPietro, but she was born Ashley Youmans) This information originally came to the attention of authorities from a federal wiretap. Spitzer, a Democrat, had at least seven or eight liaisons with women from the agency over six months, and paid more than $15,000. According to published reports, investigators believe Spitzer paid up to $80,000 for prostitutes over a period of several years while he was the state's Attorney General, and later as Governor. Spitzer first drew the attention of federal investigators when his bank reported suspicious money transfers, which initially led investigators to believe that Spitzer may have been hiding bribe proceeds. The investigation of the governor led to the discovery of the prostitution ring. In the wake of the revelations, Spitzer announced on March 12, 2008 that he would resign his post as governor at noon on March 17, 2008, amid threats of his impeachment by state lawmakers. "I cannot allow for my private failings to disrupt the people's work," Spitzer said at a news conference in New York City. "Over the course of my public life, I have insisted – I believe correctly – that people take responsibility for their conduct. I can and will ask no less of myself. For this reason, I am resigning from the office of governor."

Taiwan Dominates 1973 LLWS The 1973 Little League World Series featured total domination by the team from Tainan City, Taiwan. In their three games not only did the Taiwanese team record three shutouts (18-0, 27-0, and 12-0), they did not even surrender a hit to their hopelessly outclassed opponents. Because there was no mercy rule in LLWS play at the time, in their final two games the Taiwanese players deliberately bunted into outs when victory was assured. Ed Vosberg, who became a much-travelled MLB pitcher (nine teams in 10 seasons), played first base for the Tucson, AZ team that lost to Tainan City in the finals. Vosberg had pitched a one-hitter in his team's semifinal victory versus Birmingham, MI. The dominance of the Tainan City team was so thorough it compelled the Taiwanese ambassador in Washington to issue the following apology: "I am sorry we were so good."

Happy Days - Richie Moves Out West It is pretty much agreed that the heyday of Happy Days was its first three or four seasons. Ron Howard (who played Richie Cunningham) left the show in 1980 after six years. (According to the plot, Richie and friend Ralph Malph had joined the Army.) Nevertheless, Happy Days continued until 1984. Howard returned for a special two-part episode in the fall of 1983. In this moving scene, Richie says his goodbyes after announcing he will be pursuing his dream to become a screen writer in California. Tissue alert! Be prepared!

Cheers - Final Scene On May 20, 1993--after 11 excellent seasons--the terrific sitcom Cheers went off the air. The plot of the final show reunited the intellectual Diane Chambers and the unrefined Sam Malone after six years of separation. The two were supposed to marry (for the umpteenth time) but Sam calls off the wedding at the last minute and returns to his comfort zone--his beloved bar. Barfly Norm cryptically tells him he cannot be unfaithful to his one true love, but Sam (never the brightest penny in the jar) doesn't quite make the connection.

Kirby Puckett with David Letterman Kirby Puckett was one of the most popular and talented baseball players of his generation. He played 12 seasons with the Minnesota Twins from 1984 to 1995, leading them to World Series titles in both 1987 and 1991. In what would turn out to be Puckett's final MLB game, he was struck by a pitch by Dennis Martinez that broke his jaw on September 28, 1995. Puckett was hitting well during spring training of 1996, but woke up one morning unable to see out of his right eye. Suffering from glaucoma, Puckett was forced to retire. He became an executive with the Twins. This appearance on David Letterman's program took place in 1997. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Puckett's final years were marred with accusations of violence, marital infidelity, sexual misconduct, spousal abuse, and other unseemly behavior that resulted in the Twins severing ties with him. Sports Illustrated ran an extremely unflattering cover story by Frank Deford on Puckett in a 2003 issue that chronicled his disturbing "secret life." Wrote Deford, "The media and the fans in Minnesota turned the Twins' Hall of Famer into a paragon of every virtue—-and that made his human flaws, when they came to light, all the more shocking." Puckett died of a cerebral hemorrhage eight days before his 46th birthday in 2006.

Ricky Segall - Killer of The Partridge Family One certain indicator that a TV show is slipping is the pointless addition of a new character. It is especially true when a child is added to a show's cast in a desperate attempt to attract more youthful viewers. Along those lines, who remembers little Ricky Segall on The Partridge Family? For many die-hard fans of the show, Segall is the Partridges' equivalent of "Cousin Oliver"--Robbie Rist's character who is often unfairly blamed for killing The Brady Bunch. The Partridge Family was a top-20 show in both 1971-72 and 1972-73. For reasons best known to ABC, for the 1973-74 season it was moved from its secure Friday night time slot to Saturdays at 8 p.m. where it hopelessly had to compete against All In The Family on CBS. Furthermore, someone at ABC thought the Partridge kids were getting up in years--after all Suzanne Crough (who played youngest child Tracy) was an old lady of ten in 1973--and thus alienating younger viewers. Enter four-year-old singer Ricky Segall who played neighbor Ricky Stevens. Sporting a Prince Valiant haircut, Stevens' shtick was to act cute and warble a kids' tune. (Ricky's father wrote his songs!) Segall appeared in ten of the first twelve episodes in the 1973-74 season before vanishing from the show without any explanation. Only in his first episode did his character have a meaningful role. (New to the neighborhood, Ricky's mom did not like showbiz folks.) The Partridge Family was cancelled after the 1973-74 season with 96 total episodes made. Segall had a spotty TV and movie career after his stint on The Partridge Family. Today he is a married ordained minister with three children. At last report Segall was living and preaching in Canada.

Bell Canada Dieppe Commercial I might as well post the best Canadian commercial ever made: a Bell Canada spot that aired in the 1990s. A young man surprises his grandfather back home in Canada by phoning him from Dieppe. (It might need some explaining to non-Canadians unfamiliar with the Dieppe Raid during the Second World War. Nearly two full years before D-Day, on August 19, 1942, more than 6,000 Allied troops--the vast majority Canadian--were sent on an ill-conceived mission across the English Channel to the French coastal city of Dieppe. They landed on a beach with high tides, baseball-sized rocks that inhibited vehicles, and high cliffs heavily fortified by German machine guns. Their mission was to destroy enemy defenses and communications. It was an unmitigated disaster. Of the 6,086 troops who landed, 3,623 were either killed or captured. Historians argue about the raid's value to this day. Some claim it was a total waste of human life. Others say the costly lessons of Dieppe led to the successful Allied amphibious landings later in the war in North Africa and Normandy.)

Ozzies Girls Does anyone (besides me) even remember the short-lived syndicated sitcom Ozzie's Girls? It aired in 1973. Twenty-four episodes were made. Here was the premise: Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, now empty-nesters, decide to rent their sons' old bedrooms to a pair of college girls named Susie Hamilton and Brenda MacKenzie. (Strangely, Brenda was known as Jennifer for the first few episodes; the name change was never explained.) The show's plots often centered around the parents of two boys now having to cope with two females in their house--mostly Ozzie's difficulties in adapting to a female-dominated home. David Nelson produced the series. Derided by Total Television as a "limp sequel" to The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Ozzie's Girls never caught on. It was not renewed for a second season.
