South End Grounds - Boston This is a photo of one of the great ballparks of the 19th century: South End Grounds, the home of Boston's National League club. Having a short distance to both foul poles and a vast center field, the park opened to great acclaim on May 25, 1888. It was actually the second of three ballparks to bear that name. Nearly six years later, on May 15, 1894, the mostly wooden park burned to the ground during a game. (Police placed the blame on kids playing with matches under the bleachers.) Another 117 buildings in the neighborhood also were destroyed in the fire. The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has a fabulous computerized 'virtual exhibit' on this ballpark based on photographic evidence.

Get on Down and Party Disco music was all about fun. Unlike the protest movement songs of the 60s all people wanted to do was party and have fun, nothing more.

Nancy - Failed Sitcom 1970 This is the opening montage to Nancy, a short-lived sitcom that ran on NBC from September 17, 1970 to January 7, 1971. Here's how Total Television describes it: "Insipid sitcom about the daughter of the President of the United States, who, while vacationing in Iowa, met and married a veterinarian." Renne Jarrett played Nancy Smith. John Fink played Adam Hudson, the vet. Celeste Holm played Abby Townsend, the President's wife's press secretary who also served as Nancy's official chaperone. Despite being featured on a TV Guide cover, Nancy never caught the viewers' fancy. It was yanked after 17 episodes.

Final Ed Sullivan Show - 1971 The Ed Sullivan Show (called The Toast of the Town until 1955) debuted on CBS on June 20, 1948. The first season it aired live on Sundays from 9 to 10 p.m. For the next 22 years it aired on Sundays from 8 to 9 p.m. and became a television staple and a cultural institution. Fondly remembered, The Ed Sullivan Show is arguably the most important entertainment program in television history as it showcased the world's best singers, dancers, actors, musicians, magicians, circus acts, and comedians. (Many classic Broadway performances exist today solely because they were preserved on The Ed Sullivan Show.) Despite Ed's obvious shortcomings as a television host--he was extremely "wooden" as an emcee--the appeal of the show was that it provided something for everybody. One critic aptly declared, "Ed Sullivan can't sing, dance or tell jokes--but he knows who can!" By 1971 The Ed Sullivan Show was in decline, however. Ratings were still generally good, but the all-important demographics showed that younger viewers were no longer watching in sizable numbers. Accordingly CBS unceremoniously applied the ax. The last live show aired on Sunday, March 28, 1971. The performers on that final Sunday were folk singer Melanie; singing duo Tony Sandler & Ralph Young; Danny Davis & the Nashville Brass; mezzo-soprano Joanna Simon; impressionist David Frye; comedian Joey Adams; comedy duo Norman Wisdom and Tony Fane; comedian Lennie Schultz; and sleight-of-hand artist Vic Perry. Sullivan, who hoped to extend his show to at least 25 seasons, had no inkling the March 28, 1971 broadcast would be the last show, so there was no grand finale or tearful farewell. Reruns continued through June 6, 1971. The Ed Sullivan Show was replaced by the CBS Sunday Evening Movie--which lasted just one season. From all accounts, the cancellation of the show deeply affected Sullivan's health and well being. He began exhibiting signs of senility. Paul McCartney recalled encountering Sullivan about a year after the show's cancellation and Sullivan had no idea who McCartney was. Joan Rivers had a similar experience. Sullivan died on October 13, 1974--which was a Sunday--just a few months after being diagnosed with advanced esophageal cancer. He was 73 years old.

Rockwell - Somebodys Watching Me "Somebody's Watching Me" is the debut single by R&B artist Rockwell, released on the Motown label in 1984 (see 1984 in music).[1] The song's lyrics relate the narrator's paranoid fear of being followed and watched. It features former Motown artists Michael Jackson on the chorus & Jermaine Jackson on additional backing vocals. (from wikipedia.org)

Brady Bunch - Final Episode The final first-run episode of The Brady Bunch aired 40 years ago today: Friday, March 8, 1974. It was the 116th installment of the show. Robert Reed (who played father Mike Brady) thought the script was so bad he refused to appear in the episode. Here's the plot: The two youngest Brady kids come up with separate ideas to make a fortune. Bobby acquires a case of hair tonic from a mail-order company and tries to sell the stuff door-to-door at $2 a bottle. Cindy intends to breed rabbits. Bobby has no luck as a salesman. Oldest brother Greg--who is about to graduate from high school--takes pity on Bobby and buys a bottle of the tonic. When he uses it, however, his hair turns a ghastly shade of bright orange! Five shampoos only serve to make Greg's hair even more hideous. Eventually a dye job at Carol Brady's favorite beauty parlor restores Greg's hair to its normal shade of black just in time for his big night where he graduates with honors. (Mike is noticeably absent when the family returns home from the ceremony. He is said to be out of town on business.) Meanwhile, Cindy's rabbit-breeding efforts are in vain because she discovers she has only male rabbits. When Bobby tries to pour his unsold tonic down a drain, he accidentally spills some of it on Cindy's rabbits. Bobby and Cindy agree to make the best of the situation by selling orange rabbits. By the 1973-74 season, The Brady Bunch was in severe decline. The kids were all over 12 years old and the show's original premise of two families merging into one was long gone. In an attempt to appeal to a younger demographic, Robbie Rist was brought in as Cousin Oliver for the final six shows. It didn't work. NBC's Sanford and Son was clobbering The Brady Bunch in the ratings so ABC pulled the plug. The last rerun aired on ABC on August 30, 1974. Still, the remarkable cult following of The Brady Bunch was strong enough to garner three failed reincarnations: The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, The Brady Brides, and The Bradys. A 1988 Brady-based made-for-TV Christmas movie drew enormous ratings.

Name This Umpire You folks are pretty good at identifying major league baseball players. How are you at identifying major league umpires? Can you name this famous arbiter. Two hints: His nickname was 'God' and he is at the top of many people's lists of those who should be enshrined in Cooperstown but isn't.
