Dave Hodge Pen-Flipping Incident March 14, 1987 proved to be the final day that Canadian boadcaster Dave Hodge was associated with CBC's Hockey Night In Canada broadcasts. Earlier that same day, CBC had cut away from a crucial match at the Brier (the national men's curling championship--an important event on the sports calendar in Canada) in favor of news programming, irking many Canadians. Later that night on HNIC, CBC did it again--refusing to show the five-minute overtime period between Montreal and Philadelphia to the national audience because it would have preempted the news. As is evident in this clip, Hodge famously couldn't contain his disgust with the network that had employed him for 16 years.

Cheers - Frederick Speaks My favorite Cheers moment: In a memorable ninth-season episode, Frasier and Lillith are concerned that their 11-month-old son Frederick hasn't yet spoken his first word. They jointly agree that their toddler needs proper intellectual stimulation--but Frasier takes him to the bar anyway. When Lillith discovers Frasier and Frederick at Cheers, Frederick dramatically says his first word!

 Saddam Hussein Received Key To Detroit Saddam Hussein directed hundreds of thousands of dollars to a church in Detroit and ended up receiving a key to the city for more than two decades. This is after he became the president of Iraq. Saddam’s bond with Detroit started in 1979 with Reverend Yasso congratulating him on his presidency. The church received a sum of $250,000. Post this donation, Yasso referred to Saddam as a kind, generous and cooperative person. He later on reported that money and power changed the person.

Babe Dahlgren Replaces Lou Gehrig On Tuesday, May 2, 1939, Lou Gehrig did not play for the New York Yankees for the first time in nearly 14 years, a streak that lasted 2,130 consecutive games. Gehrig's final game was two days earlier on April 30. His replacement at first base that day in Detroit was Ellsworth (Babe) Dahlgren a ballplayer who would likely be known to only hard-core fans if not for his connection to Lou Gehrig's "iron man" streak. This short clip is from a 1989 interview in which the 77-year-old Dahlgren recalls the historic game in which Gehrig sat himself out.

Deanna Durbin 1921-2013 It has been reported that Deanna Durbin, who first attained Hollywood stardom as a teen star in the 1930s, has died at age 91. Durbin had been pretty much a recluse since retiring from films at age 29. In 1939, Durbin and fellow teen star Mickey Rooney were presented special Academy Awards for their “significant contribution in bringing to the screen the spirit and personification of youth …” At the time of her presentation, Durbin had appeared in only four films, such was her star power. By the end of the 1930, the Winnipeg-born Durbin had become one of the biggest box-office stars of the period. Accounts circulated that she saved Universal from bankruptcy, although that was not wholly accurate; however, it was estimated that her films' earnings accounted for 17 percent of the studio's revenue during a period late in the decade. During World War II, Durbin was named the favorite of more than 300 different groups of servicemen. Reportedly, she was Winston Churchill's favorite movie star, and the British Prime Minister was allowed to see her films before they were released to the general public in Great Britain. Following crucial British victories, Churchill would celebrate by re-screening her 1937 film One Hundred Men and a Girl, accompanied by brandy and a cigar. Durbin assessed her popularity, especially among older men, in matter-of-fact terms: “I represented the ideal daughter millions of fathers and mothers wished they had.” In 1949, at the height of her worldwide fame, Durbin quit the movie business. The following year, she moved to France and left the public eye. She lived outside of Paris with her third husband, French director/film executive Charles David, who had directed her in Lady on a Train (1945). At the time of her retirement at age 29, Durbin was the highest-paid female screen star in Hollywood and, accordingly, the highest-paid woman in the world.

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.

Latrell Sprewell - Outrageous Quote Former NBA player Latrell Sprewell had a special gift: He could alienate just about everyone with his astonishing lack of responsibility. In 1997, as a member of the Golden State Warriors, Sprewell was suspended for 68 games after he attempted to choke his own coach who, during a practice, had asked him to make sharper passes. As bad as that incident was, Sprewell is probably best known for rejecting a three-year, $21-million contract extension in 2004 offered by the Minnesota Timberwolves. The amount actually was a pay reduction compared to the $14.6 million he was making in 2004-05 as a 34-year-old. Insulted by the offer, Sprewell publicly expressed outrage, declaring, "I have a family to feed... If [Minnesota general manager] Glen Taylor wants to see my family fed, he better cough up some money. Otherwise, you're going to see these kids in one of those Sally Struthers commercials soon." Sports Illustrated's Rick Reilly had a field day with Sprewell's assertion that he could not feed his family on such a salary. Reilly pointed out, among other things, that Sprewell could buy 18 McDonald's franchises with his $8.3-million-after-taxes income. After declining the Timberwolves' extension, and, having once more drawn the ire of fans and sports media, Sprewell had the worst season of his career in the final year of his contract. In the summer of 2005, the Denver Nuggets, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Houston Rockets all expressed interest in signing Sprewell, but no agreements were reached. Sprewell later lost custody of his children, had his home and yacht reposessed, and declared personal bankruptcy.
