Rodney McCray baseball blooper Some of the best baseball bloopers don't occur at the major league level. Here's a good example: Vancouver's Rodney McCray, in a reckless attempt to catch a fly ball, literally runs through a wall during a Pacific Coast League game in Portland in 1991.

Pitfall Alex Trebek hosted this game show that was taped in Vancouver and later became infamous. The producers of Pitfall had big plans for this syndicated show, assuming it would get picked up by a multitude of American stations. It didn't, and many winners never collected their prizes. Alex also got stiffed. Last I heard he had never received a penny for his work as host and is still bitter about being stiffed by fellow Canadians.

Brian Spencer - Hockey Tragedy On December 12, 1970 Brian Spencer was elevated from the minor leagues to the Toronto Maple of Leafs of the NHL. Prior to the Leafs' game versus Chicago, Spencer phoned his father, Roy, in British Columbia to tell him the good news and advise him to watch that evening's Hockey Night In Canada broadcast on CBC television. When the elder Spencer attempted to watch the game, though, he discovered the CBC affiliates in British Columbia were showing the Vancouver Canucks' home game versus California instead of his son's game from Toronto. Incensed, Roy drove 85 miles to the nearest CBC affiliate in Prince George, BC. Threatening several employees at gunpoint, he demanded the station switch its coverage from the Canucks' game to Leafs' game. The station complied. However, when Roy Spencer attempted to leave the television station, he got into a gun battle with police and was shot and killed. The feisty Brian Spencer spent nearly a decade in the NHL, but descended into a lifestyle of cocaine addiction afterward. He himself was shot to death at age 38 in a drug deal gone wrong in Florida on June 3, 1988.

Barbara Ann Scott Canada's Barabara Ann Scott is photographed doing a 'stag leap' in this photograph from December 1947. Two months later, at age 19, she would win the women's figure skating gold medal at the 1948 Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland. At the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, the 81-year-old Scott was one of the dignitaries who brought the Olympic flag into the stadium.

Wayne Maki-Ted Green Incident On September 21, 1969, the Boston Bruins were playing the St. Louis Blues in an NHL pre-season game in Ottawa. Things got very nasty between Boston's Ted Green and St. Louis' Wayne Maki. This photo shows Maki clubbing Green over the head with his stick. Green dropped to the ice and laid in a grotesque position as if he had been poleaxed--which he basically had been. Green needed three brain operations and a steel plate inserted into his skull to save his life. Maki was suspended for most of the 1969-70 season. Green, to no one's surprise, did not return that season. Nevertheless, after Boston won the Stanley Cup, his Bruin teammates voted him a full share of the team's playoff money. Green's name also was inscribed on the Cup. Green returned the following year and played pro hockey until retiring at age 39 in 1979. He always wore a helmet afterward, a rarity at the time for NHLers. Maki became something of a pariah and was dealt to the expansion Vancouver Canucks before the 1970-71 season. Somewhat ironically, Maki was forced to retire in 1972 after being diagnosed with brain cancer. He died in May 1974 at age 29.

Jenna Talackova - Transgender Beauty Pageant Controversy Jenna Talackova became something of a curiosity when she became embroiled in a beauty pageant controversy. Talackova was originally denied the right to enter the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant on the grounds that she was born a male. Donald Trump, who owns the rights to the Miss Universe Pageant, overruled the initial decison. On May 19, the 23-year-old blonde from Vancouver was one of the final 12 contestants, but failed to make the final five at the pageant, held in Toronto. Another Vancouver contestant, Sahar Biniaz, 26, claimed the crown and advanced to the international Miss Universe competition, but she didn't get anywhere near the publicity that Talackova did. Talackova was one of four contestants named Miss Congeniality. Talackova's lawyer Gloria Allred said that Talackova shouldn't feel too disappointed about not winning. "She's still a winner as far as I'm concerned," Allred said during an intermission. "She won an 'herstoric' civil rights victory and that I think is frankly more important than anything, any victory she would win, even representing Miss Canada." Talackova was born Walter Talackova and under went a sex change operation four years ago. Talackova was the first transgender competitor to seek the Miss Universe Canada crown and, predictably, attracted extensive media coverage.
