Mike Tyson SI Cover There was once a time when Mike Tyson was a positive force for boxing. He was six months shy of his 20th birthday when he first appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1986 billed as 'Kid Dynamite.' Tyson's story made good copy: He was a tough kid from the projects who was more or less adopted by boxing guru Cus D'Amato and turned into a champion with frightening power. D'Amato also instilled in Tyson a love of boxing history--a rare commodity among modern pugilists. D'Amato died not long afterwards. So did another one of Tyson's handlers, Jim Jacobs. Tyson wed actress Robin Givens, but the marriage was a disaster. Things spiralled downward from that point...

Guest Dies During TV Talk Show On June 5, 1971, Jerome Irving Rodale (pictured here) was a guest on Dick Cavett's prime time talk show. Rodale, a pioneer in organic foods and a longevity guru, had stated he intended to live to be 100 years old. When Cavett began interviewing his next guest (political journalist Pete Hammill), Rodale made a snoring-like sound and slumped over. Cavett thought Rodale had fallen asleep. 'Are we boring you, Mr. Rodale?' asked Cavett. Nope. The 72-year-old Rodale had succumbed to a fatal heart attack. The show was never aired.

Jack Lalanne Passes Today At Age 96 Jack LaLanne, the fitness guru and tireless television exercise-show host who demonstrated jumping jacks and push-ups while touting low-sugar diets and weight training long before they were fashionable, has died. He was 96. LaLanne died of pneumonia today at his home in Morro Bay, California, the Associated Press reported, citing his agent, Rick Hersh. LaLanne, who sometimes referred to himself as the Godfather of Fitness, was a TV pioneer in 1951 when he hosted one of the first exercise programs. His following grew when “The Jack LaLanne Show” was syndicated nationally from 1956 to 1970. The muscular host demonstrated calisthenics while amusing the home audience with his patter: “Ten seconds on the lips and a lifetime on the hips” and “Your waistline is your lifeline.”

Stump the Schwab Here's a clip from a game show that sports fans ought to recall: Stump the Schwab. ESPN featured their in-house stats guru, Howie Schwab, in a sports quiz face-off against an array of challengers. In the 80 total shows made from 2004 to 2006, "The Schwab" as Howie liked to call himself, won 64 times--an impressive 80 percent success rate. Stuart Scott, who served as the show's quizmaster, died on January 4, 2015 from cancer at the young age of 49. ESPN callously fired Schwab from his behind-the-scenes position at the network in 2013 after 26 years of service as part of its broad cost-cutting measures.
