Jim Joyce - Missed Call Fallout About a year ago I posted a photo of teary-eyed veteran MLB umpire Jim Joyce whose blown call at first base with two outs in the ninth inning cost Detroit Tigers' pitcher Armando Gallaraga a rare perfect game on June 2, 2010. Amazingly, Joyce became something of a folk hero for admitting his mistake and accepting the criticism that followed. Here is an excellent inteview that Joyce conducted with MLB.com six days after the blown call in which Joyce expresses his astonishment about the support he had received.

Canadian Tire Albert Commercial - 1984 Canadian Tire is a huge chain of stores in Canada that sells automotive products, household items, sports equipment, gardening supplies...you name it. This 1984 commercial became very well known. The message is simple: Buy your hockey equipment at Canadian Tire and you'll rise from the last kid chosen at a pickup game to a superstar. (Funny note: For a while it was not uncommon for NHL fans at games in Canadian cities to chant "Albert! Albert!" when the home team was playing poorly.)

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.)

Tennis Romance - 1974 Some historians point to 1974 as the year when pro tennis made its first major impact on the sports world. Adding to the allure of the game was a romance between the top male player in the world and the top female player: Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert. Each won at Wimbledon that summer and a wedding date was set for November. Alas, their relationship fell apart. Jimmy has been married to Patti McGuire, Playboy Magazine's 1977 Playmate of the Year, since 1979. Chrissie has had three marriages end in divorce.

Cincinnati Reds Comeback - 1972 NLCS The ballgame isn't over until the last man is out! That adage proved to be very true in the fifth and deciding game of the 1972 National League Championship Series. The Pittsburgh Pirates, the defending World Series champs from 1971, led the hometown Cincinnati Reds 3-2 going into the bottom of the ninth inning. Reliever Dave Giusti entered the game to shut down the Reds. As this brief clip shows, the Reds would not be denied. Johnny Bench tied the game with a leadoff home run. Tony Perez singled and was replaced by pinch-runner George Foster. Another single by Denis Menke advanced Foster to second base and drove Giusti from the mound. He was replaced by Bob Moose. Cesar Geronimo flied out to Roberto Clemente in right field, which advanced Foster to third base. Darrel Chaney popped out. Hal McRae, pinch-hitting for Reds' pitcher Clay Carroll, stepped into the batter's box. Moose uncorked a wild pitch. Foster scored and the Reds were on their way to the World Series. Nobody knew it at the time, but Roberto Clemente had played his last game. He died in a plane crash on New Year's Eve. Bob Moose met an untimely end too: He died in a car crash on his 29th birthday in 1976. By the way, do you recognize the radio announcer? It is Al Michaels.

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.

1971 ASG - Reggie Jackson Home Run The first MLB All-Star Game I ever watched was the 1971 contest from Detroit. Reggie Jackson came to the plate in the bottom of the third inning against Dock Ellis. Reggie connected for a titanic blast that hit a transformer atop Tiger Stadium's right field roof.

Montreal Expos Last Home Game September 29, 2004 was a sad day for baseball fans in Canada. The Montreal Expos played their final game at home. They would relocate to the District of Columbia in 2005 and become the Washington Nationals. Some 31,000 nostalgic people showed up to see the Expos lose 9-1 to the Florida Marlins. This is a CBC News report about that last game at Olympic Stadium.
