Gong Show - Man Gongs Self From a 1976 episode of my favorite off-the-wall TV program--The Gong Show--a contestant named Paul Zegler gongs himself (at the request of panelist Jamie Farr)! Folks, they don't make entertaining shows like this anymore!

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 new children are 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 episodes before vanishing from the show without any explanation. 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.

Roger Maris - 61st Home Run Here's a rarity: Red Barber's call of Roger Maris' "asterisk" home run--his 61st round-tripper of the 1961 season. Most people have only heard Phil Rizzuto's radio call. This is the WPIX-TV call.

He was 90. Whitman died of heart failure at Orange Park Medical Center, his son-in-law Roy Beagle said.

ESPN Reveals 1973 King-Riggs Match was Fixed Confirming many people's suspicions that have lingered for 40 years, an expose on ESPN.com this week showed strong evidence that Bobby Riggs deliberately lost his famous Battle of the Sexes tennis match to Billie Jean King as a way to erase his gambling debts with organized crime. The 55-year-old Riggs had throttled Margaret Court, the world's top female tennis player, in a televised match on Mother's Day 1973 6-2, 6-1. Four months later King, the defending Wimbledon champion, beat Riggs in surprisingly easy fashion 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 before a big TV audience and more than 30,000 fans at the Houston Astrodome--despite being a 5-2 underdog at Las Vegas sports books. When one views the Riggs-King match with a critical eye, Riggs played passively and listlessly--not remotely the same way he played against Court in May. Riggs' shots were soft and usually placed directly at King. Riggs, the 1939 men's Wimbledon champion, whose serve was impeccably accurate, also double-faulted at four critical points in the match--including set point in the first set. Several all-time male tennis legends, including Don Budge who achieved the Grand Slam in 1938, expressed doubts about the honesty of the match, but their doubts were dismissed as wounded male pride at the time. According to the ESPN story, Riggs was anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 in debt to the mob. A witness, now 79, who was close to the mob, told ESPN he had overheard the discussions regarding the fix. Riggs came up with a two-part plan: In exchange for having his gambling debts expunged, Riggs would goad Court into a TV match with sexist comments knowing full well he could beat her soundly. He would then purposely lose to King as a way for the mob to make a killing in wagers on King at long odds. Riggs died in 1995 at age 77. King was among the last people to speak to him.
