Gong Show 1977 All-Star Special This clip from a 1977 "all-star special" episode encapsulates what made The Gong Show so much fun: There's a pointless mini-appearance by an old man with a walker, a deliberately bad singing act, and a creative novelty act. Enjoy!

Buddy Holly Plane Crash This is a photo montage of the plane wreck that killed singers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson (a.k.a. The Big Bopper) early on February 3, 1959. Pilot Roger Peterson also was killed. The three musicians had performed at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA the night before and were headed to Fargo, ND, the closest airport to their next stop on their tour--Moorhead, MN. They decided to leave ahead of the rest of their group because of their dislike of the cold touring bus and to get their laundry done. The ages of the deceased foursome make this tragedy truly sad: Holly was 22, Richardson was 28, Valens was 17, Peterson was 21. Investigators attributed the crash to pilot error (specifically inexperience with the Bonanza aircraft's altitude gauge) combined with bad winter weather. The crash was neither seen nor heard by anyone on the ground. Investigators calculated it occurred about four minutes after takeoff from Mason City's small airport. The charter plane's owner became concerned when Peterson did not report his flight plan after takeoff which he said he would do. The wreckage of the plane was found in a farmer's corn field about nine hours after the crash. All three singers had been thrown from the plane while Peterson's body was trapped in the twisted metal. In a strange and morbid twist, nearly half a century later in 2007 Richardson's body was exhumed to satisfy the curiosity of his son (who hadn't been born at the time of the crash). He had heard wild rumors that his father may have actually survived the crash and had been shot to death! The well preserved corpse of Richardson--with its perfectly cropped flat-top hairstyle--showed that death was instaneous due to countless fractures consistent with an airplane crash victim. Richardson's son spent several minutes "visiting" his father whom he had never known.

Kirk Gibson Home Run - 1988 WS Some baseball fans would argue this is the most dramatic moment in MLB history: It's Game #1 of the 1988 World Series. It's the bottom of the ninth inning. The Los Angeles Dodgers trail the favored Oakland A's 4-3. With two out and a runner on first base, an injured Kirk Gibson, hobbled by two bad legs, makes a dramatic pinch-hitting appearance. Vin Scully and Joe Garagiola provide the commentary.

Sad Final Years of Jerry Quarry Jerry Quarry was an extremely popular heavyweight fighter whose best years unfortunately coincided with the heydays of both Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Quarry was a two-fisted slugger who possessed suprising mobility in the ring. A fine overall athlete, Quarry was a finalist in ABC's Superstars in 1974. His popularity landed him cameo appearances on TV shows such as Adam-12, I Dream of Jeannie, and Batman. However, Quarry's long career in the ring--he had about 200 amateur bouts and 66 pro fights--took a heavy toll. In 1983, six years after his last fight, Quarry and two other boxers volunteered to take neurological exams for a Sports Illustrated feature on the harmful effects of boxing. Although Quarry seemed perfectly healthy and alert, his test results were shockingly bad. By the mid 1990s, pugilistic dementia, commonly known "being punch drunk" had set in. This sad feature on Quarry was shot in 1995 when he was just 50 years old. He was under the care of his brother because he was unable to take care of himself anymore. Quarry was hospitalized in late December 1998 with pneumonia and died of cardiac arrest on January 3, 1999. He was just 53 years old.

Great Blizzard of 1888 Snowstorms have paralyzed major cites for as long as North America has had major cities. The most devastating storm was likely the Great Blizzard of 1888 that crippled most of America's major eastern seaboard cities north of Washington DC and into Canada. What made this blizzard so bad was that it came as a total surprise. In the days leading up to March 12, 1888, there had been unseasonably mild weather. People on the streets of New York City were walking around without overcoats. The "Great White Hurricane," as some folks dubbed it, struck with a fury. Torrential rains began falling, and on March 12 the rain changed to heavy snow, temperatures plunged, and a ferocious wind began. The storm continued unabated for the next 36 hours. Sources vary, but the National Weather Service estimated that 50 inches of snow fell in Connecticut and Massachusetts and 40 inches covered New York and New Jersey. Winds blew up to 48 miles an hour, creating snowdrifts 40 to 50 feet high. The resulting transportation crisis led to the creation of the New York subway, approved in 1894 and begun in 1900. Telegraph and telephone wires snapped, isolating New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington for days. Two hundred ships were grounded, and at least 100 sailors died. Fire stations were immobilized, and property loss from fire alone was estimated at $25 million. Overall, more than 400 deaths were reported.
