Rainstorm Terminates 1976 NFL-College Game Several years ago I made a post regarding the annual "Chicago All-Star Game"--an NFL preseason contest that pitted the reigning champions versus a team of top collegiate all-stars. Played from 1934 to 1976, it was held annually at Chicago's Soldier Field. The gate receipts benefited various charities. Here's a 10-minute clip from the clash between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the College All-Stars in July 1976. Frank Gifford and Bud Wilkinson are calling the game for ABC. One of the most severe rainstorms you'll ever see at a sports event--combined with out-of-control fans invading the field--caused the game to be terminated late in the third quarter with Pittsburgh comfortably ahead 24-0. With NFL teams becoming less and less willing to risk their promising rookies for the sake of an exhibition game, the 1976 game was the last of the series. It was also the last game that Ara Parseghian ever coached. The former Notre Dame coach had retired after the 1974 season, but he was coaxed out of retirement to coach the College All-Stars in this game.

Hal Roach Interviewed at Age 100 Here's something fun: In January 1992, seven days after his 100th birthday, famous film producer Hal Roach was interviewed on The Tonight Show by Jay Leno. Roach began making a name for himself with silent comedies in the 1920s. Among other achievements, Roach was responsible for creating the Our Gang series of short comedies and for brilliantly pairing Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy together. Roach's mind was still very sharp for a centenarian and his stories were amusing. He died ten months later.

1972 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 4 - All Goals This short clip shows all five goals from Game #4 of the 1972 Stanley Cup finals on May 7, 1972. That Sunday afternoon, the Boston Bruins defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 at Madison Square Garden. (More accurately, Bobby Orr defeated the New York Rangers 3-2.) The win gave Boston a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Rangers won Game #5 in Boston on May 9, but the Bruins won Game #6 3-0 on May 11 to win their second Stanley Cup in three seasons. They did not win another until 2011.

Canadian Hockey Fans Finish US Anthem On November 15, 2014 the Toronto Maple Leafs were hosting the Nashville Predators at the Air Canada Centre. Whenever an American-based team plays in Toronto, both the US and Canadian anthems are performed. This night, the singer's microphone malfunctioned halfway through the Star-Spangled Banner. No problem! The crowd finished the anthem for her!

1939 NFL Game in Color Behold ten minutes of play from a 1939 NFL game in stunning color! The remarkable clarity makes the silent footage look like it was shot last week instead of nearly 80 years ago. It's from a September 24, 1939 game between the Brooklyn Dodgers (yes, there was an NFL team by that name) and the Detroit Lions. The game was played at University of Detroit Stadium and drew an excellent crowd. Despite the score being 0-0 at halftime, Detroit (in blue) won 27-7. A few things to notice: No faceguards on the players. (Brooklyn's kicker has no helmet.) There are a double set of goalposts because the NFL's posts were situated on the goal line in 1939; while the NCAA's were on the end line. The NFL used a thicker ball in that era. You have to love the referees' all-white outfits.

Tim Conway - Dentist Sketch From a 1969 episode of The Carol Burnett Show, Tim Conway hilariously plays an inept, novice dentist in this memorable sketch. Harvey Korman, who plays Conway's first patient, was so overcome by laughter that he literally wet his pants during the routine.

Ball Night Causes MLB Forfeit - 1995 I bet you didn't know there have been 139 forfeits in Major League Baseball history. The most recent occurred on August 10, 1995 when the Los Angeles Dodgers forfeited a game to the St. Louis Cardinals in the ninth inning. It happened to be "Ball Night" at Dodger Stadium--so the crowd was conveniently armed with free autographed baseballs that had been given out to them when they passed through the turnstiles. Three times the crowd reacted hostilely when calls went against the home team, littering the field with baseballs. With the Dodgers trailing 2-1 in the ninth inning, another barrage of baseballs descended from the seats when Raul Mondesi struck out. (Plate umpire Jim Quick's strike call on the 3-1 pitch was, admittedly, horrible.) Crew chief Bob Davidson had enough of the missiles and terminated the game. Here's ESPN's brief report on what happened.

Shirley Temple - Tra La La La From the 1940 comedy-drama Young People, Shirley Temple performs the musical dance number Tra La La La with co-stars Jack Oakie and Charlotte Greenwood. The plot has the film's three stars playing a vaudeville family who choose to retire from the stage and move to a rural New England community to live a normal life. However, their presence is resented by the stodgy locals who dislike showbiz folks--and anything else that differs from their ways. This is the last sequence of the film. It also turned out to be the swansong of 12-year-old Shirley's career with Twentieth Century Fox--the studio she had single-handedly saved from bankruptcy. Her contract was not renewed as her box-office appeal had diminished markedly as Shirley approached her teenage years. Shirley's two co-stars in this movie both died within a month of each other in the late 1970s.
