Jesse James Exhumation - 1995 Notorious outlaw Jesse James was shot to death at close range by Bob Ford, a fellow gang member, on April 3, 1882. Ford had hoped to collect a sizable reward by offing James. Instead, Ford got himself a first-degree murder conviction--for which he was swiftly pardoned--and a place in western folklore. Rumors began almost immediately that James' death had been faked and he was living quietly away from the limelight. In 1995--some 113 years after a bullet entered his skull, James' body was exhumed from its supposed final resting place in Kearney, MO so DNA samples could be matched against those of his living descendants. The tests scientifically proved that the man buried in James' grave was, in fact, Jesse James. Locals cashed in on the exhumation frenzy by selling t-shirts to curiosity seekers that said, "We dig Jesse!"

Jim Joyce Blown Call Incident It was one of the strangest feel-good stories in sports history: On Wednesday, June 2, 2010, Detroit Tigers' pitcher Armando Galarraga was one out from pitching a rare perfect game. Cleveland Indians' batter Jason Donald hit a ground ball to the right side of the infield. First baseman Miguel Cabrera moved toward second base to field the ball. Galarraga ran from the pitcher's mound to cover first base. Cabrera's throw to Galarraga beat Donald to the bag by about three-quarters of a step--but Jim Joyce, a highly regarded 22-year MLB veteran umpire, incorrectly ruled Donald safe. Galarraga retired the next Indians' hitter for a 3-0 shutout win, but Joyce came under immediate fire for missing the call that cost Galarraga a perfect game. Death threats were sent to his family members in Oregon. MLB Security provided extra protection to Joyce and his umpiring crew. However, Joyce did a remarkable thing: he publicly and candidly acknowledged his error and tearfully apologized to Galarraga in the umpires' room. Galarraga handled the situation incredibly well, telling Joyce that "we're all human." The next afternoon, Joyce was working home plate. Tigers' manager Jim Leyland sent Galarraga to the plate to present the lineup card to a teary-eyed Joyce (see photo). The crowd loudly cheered both Joyce and Galarraga. The dynamics of the situation completely changed: Joyce was then widely hailed as a hero for owning up to his mistake. He received hundreds of letters and emails of support from people from all walks of life. When Joyce's umpiring crew arrived in Philadelphia for their next series, they were applauded at the airport.

Barbara Ann Scott on Whats My Line Former Olympic and world figure skating champion Barbara Ann Scott (accompanied by her pet poodle Pierre!) was the mystery guest on this episode of What's My Line from April 17, 1955. Scott was performing in an ice show at the time. As the first Canadian to win a world figure skating title, Scott was a much beloved person in Canada until her death in 2012. She was one of the flag bearers at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. This was the first time the one-question-at-a-time rule was used for the mystery guest segment.

Concentration Final Episode - 1973 On March 23, 1973 the memory-based game show Concentration ended its hugely successful run of nearly 15 years as an NBC daytime program. In this clip host Bob Clayton bids a kind farewell to the show's loyal fans. Clayton hosted the show from 1969 to 1973. It had previously been hosted by Hugh Downs from 1958 through 1965. Clayton was the show's announcer when Downs was the host. Jack Barry, Art James, and Bill Mazer all hosted the show in the years between Downs' and Clayton's tenures. A few months into 1969, Ed McMahon replaced Clayton--which proved to be an extremely unpopular decision. When ratings started to tank, Clayton was brought back as host. Clayton died of cardiac arrest in 1979; he was only 57. Interesting bit of trivia: Concentration was the last game show to employ an organist to provide live music.
