Richie Cunningham - NFL Placekicker It can be an unfortunate or amusing coincidence when someone, quite by chance, has the same name of a celebrity or a fictitious character. Such was the case of of Richie Cunningham, an NFL placekicker who shared the name of Ron Howard's character from the TV sitcom Happy Days. The football-playing Cunningham was born in Houma, LA in 1970--four years before Happy Days hit the airwaves. He attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and did most of the kicking for the school's football team. Undrafted, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in 1994, but released. He was back with the Cowboys by 1997 where he enjoyed an outstanding rookie campaign. In 1998 he kicked 34 field goals to set a Dallas team record. On occasion, a snippet of the Happy Days theme would be played over the public-address system after Cunningham successfully booted a three-pointer. ESPN's Chris Berman, in doing the NFL highlight package, liked to say "Cunningham Potsied the ball through the uprights!" However, being an NFL kicker is a tenuous existence. Partway through the 1999 NFL season, Cowboys released Cunningham when his accuracy on field goals was just over 50 percent. By 2002 he was out of football altogether after stops in Carolina, Cincinnati, Jacksonville and Green Bay.

Boogie - Canadian Disco TV Show This show definitely belongs in a time capsule: Boogie--billed as "Canada's hippest TV Show"-- was a 1970s program produced by City-TV, an independent Toronto station. It was a weekly, low-budget show designed to capitalize on the disco craze. Every week it featured local dancers, disco fashion shows, and a dance competition. R. Paul Godfrey was its host. When disco died, it died too. Boogie was largely forgotten until it was resurrected in campy reruns as Retro Boogie Dance Party in the early 2000s on MuchMusic, a Canadian cable music channel.

Darla Hood on Jack Benny Program On October 30, 1962 the Jack Benny Program featured 31-year-old Darla Hood, who had been the prominent female character in the Our Gang comedy shorts from 1936 through 1943. When this show aired, Hood had a few minor hit records to her credit, was a nightclub singer, and was a mother of three. She performed one of her songs in the first half of the show--but this second half featured a wonderful parody of Our Gang titled 'My Gang' in which Jack played Alfalfa. Of course Darla Hood played...Darla Hood! Enjoy the fun!

1952 Corn Pops Commercial The two stars of The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok, Guy Madison and Andy Devine, promote Kellogg's Corn Pops in this 1952 commercial. The syndicated western ran from 1951 though 1958. More than a dozen feature films were made by combining various TV episodes. Bit of trivia: Andy Devine's very recognizable gravelly voice was the result of an odd childhood accident. He damaged his vocal chords when he fell while he had a stick in his mouth! Although he has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Guy Madison, who died in 1996 at age 74, is largely forgotten in North America. He had greater success in Italy where he stared in low-budget westerns and combat films in the 1960s.

Joe Theismann Injury - 1985 Definitely not for the faint of heart: Washington Redskins' quarterback Joe Theismann's famous career-ending leg injury. It occurred during a Monday Night Football telecast on November 18, 1985 when a trick play went awry and two New York Giants (Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor) tackled him in the backfield. Described medically as a "comminuted compound fracture," the play was voted by ESPN viewers as the most memorable injury of all time. (By the way, "comminuted" means "pulverized"--which is a fairly accurate description of the horrible injury.) Theismann, age 36, never played another down in the NFL. His right leg never healed quite properly; it's slightly shorter than his left leg. Frank Gifford, O.J. Simpson and Fran Tarkenton were in the ABC broadcast booth that night.

Varipapa--who was a household name among bowling buffs--starred in two other bowling shorts during the 1930s. He died at age 93 in 1984.
