Jack Dempsey Vs Jess Willard This is the last half of the first round of Jack Dempsey's title-winning effort against huge world heavyweight champion Jess Willard. The date was July 4, 1919. The site was Toledo, Ohio. Watch as Dempsey lands a perfect left hook that sends Willard crumbling to the canvas. The brave champ rises and gets knocked down six more times before he's saved by the bell. (There was no neutral-corner rule or mandatory eight count in 1919.) Incredibly, Willard survived two more punishing rounds--without being knocked down again--before quitting in his corner at the end of the third round. Men were men back in those days!

Bill Kennedy at the Movies Willard "Bill" Kennedy was an American actor, voice artist, and the host of the long-running (Detroit based television show) Bill Kennedy at the Movies. CKLW-TV in Windsor, Ontario. In 1969 he moved to WKBD-TV in Southfield, Michigan and continued hosting the show until retiring to Florida (1956-1981)....The format of his program was to feature a vintage movie during which Bill would give pertinent information & and provided anecdotes about the actors, directors and about the production of the movies he showed, etc. Also, Kennedy's voice is heard doing the opening narration of the television series Adventures of Superman!

WORLDS FIRST RONALD MCDONALD Who was the world's first Ronald McDonald? In October 1963 Ronald McDonald made his television debut in a costume far from the one we all know and love. The world's first Ronald McDonald was played by Willard Scott who had several years experience of being a clown starring as Bozo the Clown. It may be speculation, but some give Willard Scott credit for creating Ronald McDonald. Not only was 1963 a good year for Ronald, McDonalds also sold it's billionth hamburger.

Willard-Johnson Fight 1915 This is must-see footage for boxing fans: Jess Willard's heavyweight title victory over reigning champion Jack Johnson on April 5, 1915 in Havana, Cuba. For years Johnson claimed he had thrown the fight for a $50,000 payoff. However, I believe the film shows 'White Hope' Willard's knockout victory to be totally legitimate.

Ronald McDonald Back In The Day Willard Scott created the character of Ronald McDonald for a Washington DC franchise in 1963, at their request. His costume looks kinda creepy compared to todays version of Ronald. A paper cup for a nose? C'mon!!! And check out the food tray on his head.

Willard Hershberger - Baseball Suicide The only active major league baseball player to commit suicide during a season was Cincinnati Reds' catcher Willard Hershberger. The 30-year-old Hershberger was in his third season as a backup catcher for the Reds. Often moody, Hershberger was a loner who was extremely critical of his own play. When regular Reds' catcher Ernie Lombardi was injured during the 1940 season, Hershberger took over, batting a very respectable .309 and playing well defensively. On July 31, though, the Reds blew a late lead against the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds. Hershberger blamed himself for the loss and became sullen. The Reds then travelled to Boston where they lost both games of a doubleheader to a weak Boston Bees team on August 2. Afterwards, Hershberger met with Reds' manager Bill McKechnie to discuss personal problems. The next day, when Hershberger failed to appear at the ballpark, a search of his Boston hotel room found Hershberger dead in a pool of his own blood. He had slit his wrists with a razor. (There was a history of suicide in the family: Hershberger's father had killed himself in 1926.) Manager McKechnie never elaborated on the personal issues he had discussed with his troubled catcher.

Heavyweight Champion Jess Willard This photo of boxer Jess Willard was taken in Havana, Cuba in 1915. (The 6'6-1/2" Willard is the chap in the center.) When this photo was taken, Willard was about to challenge aging Jack Johnson for the title on April 5. Willard, who was considered enormous by the standards of a century ago, won the coveted crown by stopping Johnson by a knockout in the 26th round of a scheduled 45-round outdoor fight contested at a racetrack under the scorching midday Cuban heat. Men were men back then!

Boxing at Yankee Stadium - 1923 When New York's Yankee Stadium opened in 1923, it was the most spectacular sports facility of its age. Besides baseball, other events took place at The House That Ruth Built. Here's a photo of a 1923 boxing match--probably one of the preliminary fights on the undercard of the Jess Willard-Floyd Johnson heavyweight bout that attracted 63,000 spectators. (I can't imagine paying for one of those seats far away in the outfield bleachers. You'd be hard pressed to see anything!)
