George Foreman Regains Title at 45 George Foreman was an intimidating bruiser when he won the world heavyweight title by demolishing Joe Frazier in 1973. He surprisingly lost the crown to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in 1974. By 1977 Foreman was out of boxing and was making a living preaching in Texas. With funds getting a little low, Foreman made what many fans thought was a crazy comeback in 1987 at age 38. Much slower than he had been in his prime, Foreman could still hit with great power, though. Now a fan favorite because of his new likable persona, Foreman had a series of comeback wins. He lost a title try to Evander Holyfield in 1991 at age 42. Three years later he was given another shot against new champion Michael Moorer. Trailing badly on the scorecards entering the tenth round, the 45-year-old Foreman shocked the world with an historic knockout blow, as this clip shows. Listen to Jim Lampley's succinct call: "It happened! It happened!" Also listen to the excited, joyous cheering of the pro-Foreman crowd when Moorer hits the deck. It ranks as one of the magical moments in sports history.

Sandie Shaw Always Something There to Remind Me 1964 Sandie Shaw took this song all the way up to #1 on the UK pop charts in 1964, and her version is still the one I like best.

Art Garfunkel as Artie Garr Dream Alone 1959 I think Art's vocal was so perfect on this song. I also think this record should have been a bigger hit. It's a pretty tune. In a better world, Art Garfunkel would have been the Justin Bieber of his day. Only with more talent. And better music. Of course then we'd have missed out on all the great Simon and Garfunkel stuff later on. Actually, I guess it's a good thing he wasn't more successful as a solo artist in 1959, but it's nice that the music he recorded then is still around.

Lets Make A Deal - 1973 This is a full 1973 episode of the syndicated version of the game show Let's Make a Deal. Hosted by "America's top trader, TV's big dealer" Monty Hall, LMAD was fast-paced, goofy and fun. It was quite possibly the first game show to use psychology as its main ploy. Contestants often had to decide whether to keep cash and prizes already accrued or trade them for unknown entities hidden under boxes or behind curtains. The daytime version of LMAD began on NBC in December 1963, moved to ABC in September 1968, and ran until July 1976. In all, more than 3,800 network episodes were produced. Also several syndicated nighttime versions sprang up during Monty Hall's tenure as host and producer. Pretty prize presenter Carol Merrill became famous for her euphonic name. Monty's announcer and assistant Jay Stewart was often involved in presenting "zonks"--worthless gag prizes awarded to contestants who made bad decisions. (As of December 2013, Monty is still with us at age 92. Carol is 73. Sadly, Jay committed suicide in 1989 at age 71.) Check out those 1973 prices and enjoy!

Ian Turnbull - 5 Goals on 5 shots On February 2, 1977 Ian Turnbull, a 23-year-old defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs, set two NHL records that still stand: He scored five goals on five shots in Toronto's 9-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings at Maple Leaf Gardens. No defenceman has equalled the feat and no other NHL player, regardless of his position, has ever scored five goals on five shots. Turnbull scored 22 goals the entire season. Here's his fifth goal--a beauty.

The Rutles Piggy In The Middle Many considered the Rutles' Tragical History Tour more tragic than historical. When it was broadcast on the CBC on April 1st, 1968, it was even shown upside-down. People didn't know what to make of it. I realize now that what the Rutles were saying is that we ourselves should be upside-down when we were watching it. Then it would all make sense. Hundreds of young people all over the world joined me in doing just that. We were all part of something special. In retrospect I think it was all about the peace movement. It's hard to fight when you're upside-down. Mind you, the movie still didn't make sense, but the music was amazing.

Boy Scout Oath Poster This poster of the Boy Scout Oath, obtained from a Nebraska historical webiste, was widely used at Scout functions for decades. Perhaps they still are.

Deacon Jones on The Brady Bunch Deacon Jones died on June 3, 2013 at the age of 74. Jones was undoubtedly one of the greatest defensive players in the history of the National Football League. Had accurate totals of sacks been counted in Jones' era, many fans believe he might still hold the all-time NFL record nearly 40 years after he retired. (One source credits Jones 26 unofficial sacks in the 14-game 1967 season---which would be a single-season NFL record. Sacks weren't officially recorded in the NFL until 1982.) Despite his football prowess, my first memory of Jones comes from this 1971 episode of The Brady Bunch in which he played himself. The plot revolves around Peter being teased by his macho football teammates because he sings with a glee club.
