Campbell-Hyland 1913 Boxing Photo Normally I don't approve of colorizing black-and-white photos, but this one shows why sometimes it makes a difference. The final bell has just ended a gory May 3, 1913 boxing match in Steveston, British Columbia between welterweights Ray Campbell and Dick Hyland. Each fighter has his armed raised in victory by his respective manager after 15 rounds of what must have been intense action. (Campbell, the fighter on the left, won the decision.) I bet nobody in the crowd was clamoring for a refund.

Fight Scene - The Kid Had the Academy Awards existed in 1921, The Kid, starring Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Coogan, probably would have won the Best Picture Oscar that year. The plot of the movie revolves around Charlie's Tramp character adopting an abandoned child (Coogan) and raising him. In this amusing scene, Charlie's kid gets into a fight with an older bully and does very well. This outcome does not sit well with the bully's older brother who tries to battle Charlie.

Jenny Jones Talk Show Guest Driven to Murder On March 6, 1995, Jenny Jones, the hostess of a TV talk show that bore her name, attempted to shock one her guests. The talk show had debuted in 1991 but had failed to deliver significant ratings until its subject matter became more sleazy starting in 1993. Jones' plan that day was to have a homosexual Michigan man named Scott Amedure admit to having a crush on his neighbor Jonathan Schmitz. Schmitz, a heterosexual, agreed to appear on the program because he had been led to believe that his secret admirer was a female. Unbeknownst to the show's staff, Schmitz had a history of mental illness, so Amedure's revelation weighed negatively on his mind. The media at the time gave a woefully incomplete account of what happened. It portrayed Schmitz as someone who became violent almost immediately. However this clip from the show--which never aired--shows that Schmitz accepted the news as gracefully as could be expected given the circumstances. Only after he received a sexually charged letter from Amedure after taping the show did Schmitz snap. He took some money from his savings account, purchased a shotgun, and fatally wounded Amedure in the latter's mobile home. Schmitz called police shortly thereafter to report what he had done. Schmitz was found guilty of second degree murder and sentenced to between 25 and 50 years in prison. A successful appeal resulted in a retrial--where Schmitz was again found guilty and the prison term was reinstated. Amedure's family won a $25 million lawsuit against The Jenny Jones Show. That decision was later overturned on appeal. The Jenny Jones Show ended in 2003.

Benny Leonard - Sad Last Fight Throughout boxing history many great champions have either lingered too long or have made ill-advised comebacks only to suffer a bad defeat at the hands of a younger, fitter man. Benny Leonard, one of the greatest lightweights of all time, falls into this category. He reigned as world lightweight champion from 1917 to 1925 when he retired from the ring at age 28 at his mother's insistence. A master boxer, the hugely popular Leonard was almost unbeatable in his prime. Leonard lost all his savings when the stock market crashed in 1929 and was forced to make a comeback to earn a living. Starting in October 1931 Leonard won 19 fights and had one draw versus mostly substandard opposition. On October 7, 1932 he was paired against rising welterweight star Jimmy McLarnin--a terrific boxer-puncher who was 10 years younger than the 36-year-old Leonard. This condensed version of the fight at Madison Square Garden shows McLarnin administering a sound beating on the gallant old champ before referee Arthur Donovan wisely steps in to halt the contest in the sixth round. McLarnin would win the world welterweight title within a year. Leonard never fought again, but he stayed involved in boxing as a very capable referee. Leonard died of a heart attack while refereeing a bout in 1947. He was just 11 days past his 51st birthday.

Olympic Boxing Champ Howard Davis Passes It has been announced that Howard Davis Jr., a gold medalist on the vastly talented 1976 American Olympic boxing team, passed away at age 59 from inoperable lung cancer on December 30, 2015. In a TV news interview conducted about two weeks before his death late, Davis claimed he had never used tobacco nor alcohol throughout his entire life. Davis was one of five American gold medalists who dominated the Montreal Olympic boxing tournament. Davis won the Val Barker Award as the most outstanding boxer in those Games. This was quite a feat considering the other American gold medalists were Sugar Ray Leonard, Leo Randolph, Michael Spinks, and Leon Spinks. Davis was a sentimental favorite as his mother died from a heart attack just a week before the Olympics began. Davis won two of his five Olympic bouts in the lightweight division by knockout, but as a professional he seldom displayed punching power, recording only 14 knockouts in 43 fights. Davis' lack of a big punch and generally cautious approach to his bouts made him far less marketable to TV audiences than Ray Leonard or Michael Spinks. Nevertheless, three times Davis fought for pro world titles and three times he lost. His last title fight loss--a first-round defeat to Buddy McGirt in 1988--sent Davis into retirement. Six years later Davis won three comeback fights before suffering a bad knockout defeat as a middleweight which ended his boxing career. His overall pro record was 36-6-1. The other four American Olympic champs from 1976--plus heavyweight bronze medalist John Tate--won at least some version of a world title at the professional level.

Montreal Maroons 1924-1938 For 14 seasons from 1924-25 through 1937-38 there were two National Hockey League teams located in Montreal. Clad in the color for which they were named, the Montreal Maroons were created, supposedly, as the city's anglophone team while the older, established Canadiens represented Montreal's French-speaking populace. The famous Montreal Forum was actually built as the Maroons' home arena--not the Canadiens'. The Maroons lost their first game 2-1 to another expansion team, the Boston Bruins, on December 1, 1924, The very next season, however, the Maroons won the Stanley Cup, defeating the Victoria Cougars three games to one in a best-of-five final. (That was the last year in which non-NHL team were permitted to compete for pro hockey's holy grail.) Despite usually being a competitive team for most of their short existence--they also won the Stanley Cup in 1934-35--the Maroons clearly were the city's second choice in popularity. The Great Depression also hurt the team at the gate. The Maroons finished dead last in NHL attendance three years in a row during the 1930s. After an uncharacteristic last-place finish in 1937-38, the Montreal Maroons ceased operations. Their final game, fittingly, was a 6-3 loss to their intra-city rivals the Montreal Canadiens on March 17, 1938. Eleven Maroon players are enshrined in the Hockey Hall of fame as well as five Maroon coaches. Overall, the Maroons finished with an all-time regular-season record of 271 wins, 260 losses and 91 ties. The team's all-time leading scorer, Nels Stewart, held the NHL record for career goals (324) until 1952. He scored 185 of them as a member of the Maroons.

Federer Upsets Sampras - 2001 The only time two of the greatest and classiest tennis champions of all time--Roger Federer and Pete Sampras--ever met in an ATP match was in the Round of 16 at Wimbledon in 2001. Federer was an unknown 19-year-old Swiss player. He was given virtually zero chance to beat the 30-year-old Sampras who had won Wimbledon seven times and was largely considered to be invincible on grass. Nevertheless Federer evenly battled Sampras through five sets and emerged victorious. This clip shows match point and the aftermath. Check out Federer's goofy hairstyle!

Pickles the Pooch Finds Stolen World Cup The Jules Rimet Trophy--more commonly known as soccer's World Cup--was stolen on March 20, 1966. It was snatched from a glass display case at Methodist Central Hall in the Westminster section of London, England when the security guard assigned to keep an eye on it was temporarily absent from his post. England was going to host the quadrennial soccer tourney in three months--and the theft was a huge embarrassment for the country's Football Association. Shortly thereafter Joe Mears, the president of the F.A., received a parcel containing part of the World Cup. It was accompanied by a ransom note from a man calling himself Jackson. It demanded 15,000 British pounds in small denominations or else he would melt down the golden symbol of soccer supremacy. Mears contacted the police who arranged for a detective named Len Buggy to act on behalf of the ailing Mears who suffered from heart trouble. Buggy agreed to meet Jackson at London's Battersea Park at a specified time. Buggy brought a briefcase containing only about 500 pounds but Jackson did not bother to count it. Instead he got into Buggy's car and instructed him to drive aimlessly around London for 10 minutes. Jackson noticed a police van tailing the car. He panicked and attempted to escape on foot. He was quickly apprehended and identified as Edward Betchley, a 46-year-old army veteran. He claimed to be acting as a middle-man for a mysterious fellow he called The Pole. Betchley was the only man who was ever arrested in connection with the crime. He served two years in prison and died shortly thereafter of emphysema in 1969. The World Cup was missing for a week until David Corbett took Pickles--his mongrel dog--for a walk in the Norwich section of London on March 27. Pickles was drawn to a bundle tightly wrapped in newspaper lying near a parked car. Corbett removed the newspaper and there was the World Cup! Corbett immediately contacted police--who promptly interrogated him as a possible suspect. They finally let him go at 2:30 a.m. for lack of evidence. Pickles became a celebrity pooch. He was named Dog of the Year, was awarded a year's supply of dog food, appeared on several British TV shows, and had a feature role in a movie. Pickles was also invited to appear on TV programs in Chile, Yugoslavia and Brazil, but Corbett declined the offers as they would have required Pickles to go through strict quarantine measures and get several vaccinations to travel abroad. Corbett estimates that Pickles earned him 3000 pounds--money he put toward the purchase of a new house. When England won the World Cup on July 30, Pickles was invited to attend the team's private post-match victory party--a gathering so exclusive that even the players' wives were barred by the F.A.! Sadly Pickles accidentally suffocated in 1967 when his choke leash became entangled in a tree.
