The Sting - Poker Game A memorable scene from one of my favorite flicks--The Sting (1973): Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman) proves he's a better poker player than Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). To be completely accurate, Gondorff actually proves he's the better card cheat of the two.

Most Inept Olympic Swimmer At the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, some swimmers from developing countries were given wild card entries even though they were nowhere close to being world-class swimmers. The most famous of the bunch was 22-year-old Eric Moussambani of Equatorial Guinea. Nicknamed Eric the Eel by the British press, Moussambani had only learned to swim eight months earlier. Because there were no swimming pools in his country, Moussambani practised in a lake. He had never seen an Olympic-sized swimming pool until his memorable 100-metres freestyle heat. Moussambani's two rival competitors in his heat (Niger's Karim Bare and Tajikistan's Farkhod Oripov) were both disqualified for false starts, so Eric the Eel was on his own. Here's the clip of his heat--in which he clocked a glacial 1:52.72. The gold medallist in the men's 100-metres freestyle won the event in just 48.30 seconds.

Rock n Rollen Rollen Frederick Stewart, also known as Rock 'n' Rollen and Rainbow Man, was a fixture in American sports culture for about a decade. He became famous for wearing a rainbow-colored afro-style wig and, later, for holding up signs reading "John 3:16" at sporting events around the United States and overseas in the 1970s and 1980s. Stewart, a born-again Christian, was determined to "get the message out" via television. He figured televised sporting events provided the best opportunities. Stewart would strategically position himself for key shots of plays or athletes. Stewart's first major appearance was at the 1977 NBA Finals where he seemed to constantly be on camera. By the time of the 1979 MLB All-Star Game, broadcasters were actively trying to avoid showing him. Undaunted, Stewart appeared behind NFL goalposts, near Olympic medal stands, and even at the Augusta National Golf Club. At the 1982 Indianapolis 500, he was behind the pits of race winner Gordon Johncock. Stewart's fame led to a Budweiser beer commercial and a Saturday Night Live parody sketch. Stewart was briefly jailed by Moscow police at the 1980 Summer Olympics for wearing a red, white, and blue afro wig. By the mid-1980s Stewart's began exhibiting irrational behavior. In the late 1980s, he began a string of stink bomb attacks. His targets included the Orange County Register, the Trinity Broadcasting Network, and a Christian bookstore. The stated intent of an attempted attack at the American Music Awards was to show the public that "God thinks this stinks." Stewart is currently serving three consecutive life sentences for a orchestrating a hostage-taking and attempted kidnapping at a California hotel in 1992. Reportedly, Stewart believed that the Rapture was due to arrive in six days. During the standoff, he threatened to shoot at airplanes taking off from nearby Los Angeles International Airport and covered his hotel room windows with "John 3:16" placards. His next parole hearing is in 2017.

First Goalie Mask - 1929 In 1929 Clint Benedict of the Montreal Maroons became the first goalie to wear a mask in a National Hockey League game. Benedict had suffered a broken nose in a previous game. To continue playing, Benedict commissioned a Boston leather goods company to make an experimental mask for him. The novelty didn't last very long--just one game. Benedict said the contraption obscured his view on low shots. New York Ranger goalie Charlie Rayner wore a partial mask for a few games in 1947 to protect a broken jaw, but he too complained of impaired vision and discarded it. Another dozen years would pass before NHL goalie Jacques Plante ushered in the modern goalie mask in 1959.

We Will Meet Again - WWII Song Along with Lili Marlene, We'll Meet Again, sung by Vera Lynn in the 1940's, were the most popular song(s) of the Allied soldiers during WWII. (My father was constantly singing it for 40 years after the war ended). Here is the song reprised by 29 year old Welsh mezzo-soprano, Katherine Jenkins. (She does not look very much like an opera singer). She has embraced the causes of English veterans of WWII to those presently serving in the Middle East. She performs concerts all over the U.K. for the vets and troops on active duty, along with maintaining the rigorous schedule of an opera singer. She radiates the very essence of the English girl. You will probably know the tune and join in, singing with the crowd at this Cardiff concert. The song is at once, melodic, uplifting, and nostalgic.

Tragic Death of Martha Mansfield Pretty 24-year-old silent film actress Martha Mansfield met an untimely and ghastly end. Mansfield was shooting the film The Warrens of Virginia on November 30, 1923. During some outdoor scenes, while wearing a bulky Civil War-era dress, she took a break in her nearby parked car. Suddenly Mansfield's dress caught fire severely burning all but her neck and her face. Mansfield's chauffeur's hands were also badly burned trying to put the fire out. The cause of the fire is a bit of a mystery. Some claim it came from a match carelessly discarded from a passing car--which entered through the window of the car Mansfield was sitting in. Others think Mansfield was at fault for smoking--although no one had ever seen her smoking before. Whatever the case, she died in hospital 24 hours later.
