ABBA Happy New Year Since many people will be out celebrating tonight, I wanted to be the first to wish everone a very Happy and Safe New Year! This is the version that most people just call: 'ABBA around the piano'. Actually, 'Happy New Year' is a song from their 1980 album, 'Super Trouper'. The song's working title was humourously called 'Daddy Don't Get Drunk On Christmas Day'.

Connors Vs Borg 1976 Two minutes from the 1976 U.S. Open men's final between Jimmy Connors and Bjorn Borg. This was the second of only three years when the U.S. Open was played on clay courts at Forest Hills. Personally I like these old matches better than today's tennis. The server wasn't as dominant and the players had to craft the points back then.

Moses Walker Predated Jackie Robinson Everybody knows that Jackie Robinson was the first black major league baseball player, right? Wrong--by 63 years! Moses Fleetwood (Fleet) Walker, a barehanded catcher, played 42 games for the Toledo Blue Stockings of the American Association way back in 1884 when the AA was a major league. Walker's presence on the team created considerable controversy. Walker was subjected to death threats and snubbed by his own teammates. His brother Welday joined the team for a while too, appearing in five games as an outfielder. However, with owners, players and fans all showing open hostility toward blacks, the major league moguls made a 'gentleman's agreement' not to sign any more black players after 1884. This tacit pact stood until Jackie Robinson took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers on opening day 1947.

Roger Bannister Great Britain's Roger Bannister was the cover subject of this issue of Sports Illustrated. Bannister was being honored as SI's first-ever Sportsman of the Year for famously shattering the four-minute mile in May 1954 with a time of 3:59.4. People tend to forget that Bannister only held the world record for a few weeks. Australia's John Landy whittled the record down to 3:58 flat in June 1954.

Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx Origin Popular folklore says that if an athlete or team appears on the cover of Sports Illustrated, something negative often happens to the subject shortly thereafter. The alleged SI 'cover jinx' began with this November 18, 1957 issue. It proclaimed the University of Oklahoma's football team--a squad that was riding a fantastic 47-game winning streak--was unbeatable. Guess what happened in their next game? Notre Dame scored a late touchdown to upset Oklahoma 28-21.

Walter Cronkite Announces LBJ Death Here's something you've probably never seen before: the clip of Walter Cronkite announcing the death of former president Lyndon Baines Johnson on January 22, 1973. Cronkite, the consummate professional, gets the bulletin via telephone and seamlessly incorporates it into his live news broadcast.

Definition This excellent Canadian game show ran for 17 years on CTV from 1973 to 1990. Two teams of two competed. The object of the game was to solve a pun by adding letters to the board. (Many of the clever puns were submitted by viewers.) You might recognize host Jim Perry from his work on American game shows. The smooth-voiced announcer is Dave DeVol who holds the world record for the longest tenure as a TV weatherman. Oh yes: the 26th letter of the alphabet is "zed" in Canada.

Gigglesnort Hotel Here is a fun segment with B.J. and Blob from one of the best and most remembered Chicago children's shows (although it was eventually syndicated to other markets) - Gigglesnort Hotel. Even though it was seen for many years after it was produced, the show was only in production for 3 years - 1975, 1976, and 1977. In Chicago, it aired on Sunday mornings on WLS Channel 7.

Sergeant York Movie Poster A very attractive poster for the 1941 Gary Cooper movie Sergeant York. (I've always thought conscientious objectors should be made to watch this excellent film.)
