Ian Turnbull - 5 Goals on 5 shots On February 2, 1977 Ian Turnbull, a 23-year-old defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs, set two NHL records that still stand: He scored five goals on five shots in Toronto's 9-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings at Maple Leaf Gardens. No defenceman has equalled the feat and no other NHL player, regardless of his position, has ever scored five goals on five shots. Turnbull scored 22 goals the entire season. Here's his fifth goal--a beauty.

This Week in Baseball - 1979 Beginning in 1977, This Week in Baseball was a 30-minute syndicated highlight show packaged by Major League Baseball. It ususally aired on stations that had the rights to broadcast MLB games. In its glory years, Mel Allen was the narrator (as he was in this brief clip from an August 1979 episode). With the establishment of ESPN and nightly sports highlight shows, TWIB gradually lost its importance. Over time TWIB changed from a general highlights show to mainly fluff pieces that focused on specific teams or players. To many fans, Mel Allen's death in 1996 was a clear milestone that marked the show's slow, irretrievable decline. It was cancelled in 2012.

Heavyweight Champion Jess Willard This photo of boxer Jess Willard was taken in Havana, Cuba in 1915. (The 6'6-1/2" Willard is the chap in the center.) When this photo was taken, Willard was about to challenge aging Jack Johnson for the title on April 5. Willard, who was considered enormous by the standards of a century ago, won the coveted crown by stopping Johnson by a knockout in the 26th round of a scheduled 45-round outdoor fight contested at a racetrack under the scorching midday Cuban heat. Men were men back then!

1994 Aeroflot Plane Crash Scandal One of the strangest--and most preventable--air disasters in history was Aeroflot Flight #593. On March 23, 1994 a Russian International Airlines Airbus A310-300 crashed into a hillside of the Kuznetsk Alatau mountain range, Kemerovo Oblast. The jet was en route from Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport to Hong Kong's Kai Tak International Airport with 75 occupants aboard, of whom 63 were passengers. Most of the passengers were businessmen from Hong Kong and Taiwan who were seeking economic opportunities in Russia. There were no survivors. No evidence of technical malfunction was found, but cockpit voice and flight data recorders revealed the bizarre reason for the crash: The 12-year-old daughter (Yana) and 16-year-old son (Eldar) of pilot Yaroslav Kudrinsky were present on the flight deck. Eldar apparently had unknowingly disabled the autopilot's control of the aircraft's ailerons while seated at the controls! Yana was also recorded saying, "Daddy, can I turn this?" The aircraft had then rolled into a steep bank and near-vertical dive from which the pilots were unable to regain control in time to prevent the crash. Unlike Soviet planes with which the crew had been familiar, no audible alarm accompanied the autopilot's partial disconnection. Because of this they remained unaware of what was happening until it was too late. The plane slammed into the hillside at high speed before the crew could return the controls to autopilot. As a job perquisite, Aeroflot pilots, once per year, could take their family members on a flight free of charge and even have them present on the flight deck--but having them sit at the controls was absolutely against regulations.

Kirby Puckett with David Letterman Kirby Puckett was one of the most popular and talented baseball players of his generation. He played 12 seasons with the Minnesota Twins from 1984 to 1995, leading them to World Series titles in both 1987 and 1991. In what would turn out to be Puckett's final MLB game, he was struck by a pitch by Dennis Martinez that broke his jaw on September 28, 1995. Puckett was hitting well during spring training of 1996, but woke up one morning unable to see out of his right eye. Suffering from glaucoma, Puckett was forced to retire. He became an executive with the Twins. This appearance on David Letterman's program took place in 1997. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Puckett's final years were marred with accusations of violence, marital infidelity, sexual misconduct, spousal abuse, and other unseemly behavior that resulted in the Twins severing ties with him. Sports Illustrated ran an extremely unflattering cover story by Frank Deford on Puckett in a 2003 issue that chronicled his disturbing "secret life." Wrote Deford, "The media and the fans in Minnesota turned the Twins' Hall of Famer into a paragon of every virtue—-and that made his human flaws, when they came to light, all the more shocking." Puckett died of a cerebral hemorrhage eight days before his 46th birthday in 2006.

Ricky Segall - Killer of The Partridge Family One certain indicator that a TV show is slipping is the pointless addition of a new character. It is especially true when a child is added to a show's cast in a desperate attempt to attract more youthful viewers. Along those lines, who remembers little Ricky Segall on The Partridge Family? For many die-hard fans of the show, Segall is the Partridges' equivalent of "Cousin Oliver"--Robbie Rist's character who is often unfairly blamed for killing The Brady Bunch. The Partridge Family was a top-20 show in both 1971-72 and 1972-73. For reasons best known to ABC, for the 1973-74 season it was moved from its secure Friday night time slot to Saturdays at 8 p.m. where it hopelessly had to compete against All In The Family on CBS. Furthermore, someone at ABC thought the Partridge kids were getting up in years--after all Suzanne Crough (who played youngest child Tracy) was an old lady of ten in 1973--and thus alienating younger viewers. Enter four-year-old singer Ricky Segall who played neighbor Ricky Stevens. Sporting a Prince Valiant haircut, Stevens' shtick was to act cute and warble a kids' tune. (Ricky's father wrote his songs!) Segall appeared in ten of the first twelve episodes in the 1973-74 season before vanishing from the show without any explanation. Only in his first episode did his character have a meaningful role. (New to the neighborhood, Ricky's mom did not like showbiz folks.) The Partridge Family was cancelled after the 1973-74 season with 96 total episodes made. Segall had a spotty TV and movie career after his stint on The Partridge Family. Today he is a married ordained minister with three children. At last report Segall was living and preaching in Canada.

Our Gang - Pay As You Exit Here's the full 1936 Our Gang short comedy titled Pay As You Exit. The gang puts on something akin to Romeo and Juliet--with a strongman act by Spanky in between! Look for former gang member, the slimmed-down Joe Cobb, as the audience member who doesn't want to pay his one-cent admission price.

1978 Stanley Cup Final - Game 4 OT Today's NHL is faster, more diverse, and probably more skilled, but some hockey fans argue that the passion of the 1970s NHL has not been surpassed. Here is the overtime period of Game #4 of the 1978 Stanley Cup finals at Boston Garden between the hometown Bruins and their longtime rivals the Montreal Canadiens. The excitement in the building is palpable! Dan Kelly--perhaps hockey's greatest announcer--calls the action.
