Larry Holmes Beats Muhammad Ali On October 2, 1980, Muhammad Ali came out of retirement to try to dethrone reigning world heavyweight champion Larry Holmes. It proved to be a disastrous move. Two years of inactivity had sapped Ali's already diminished skills. Holmes had little trouble dispatching the former champion. Here are the final two rounds of this one-sided affair. You can tell that Holmes actually reins in his attack. The fight is called by Howard Cosell.

Longest-owned restaurant in America question mark Okay, friends, I'm going to try this again, because I just found out that the reason no one could access this post was because of the question mark in the title. Here's a challenge for you. In my community there is a restaurant called Ramon's Cactus Patch, and it's been owned and operated by Ramon Sanchez since 1938. I admit that most of the work is done today by his son Roque (pronounced Rocky) and his daughter Ramona, but Ramon, in his mid-nineties, is still the boss! Can you come up with a restaurant still operating with the same owner for a longer time? Not just the same family, but the same individual. The Cactus Patch has been in its present location since 1962.

Halifax Explosion On December 6th of 1917, the worst pre atom bomb explosion in history occured in Halifax NS. Two ships, the Imo, and munitions ship the Mont Blanc collided in the Halifax harbor, and within 10 minutes, the Mont Blanc was ablaze, and the explosion took place about 25 minutes after that, at approx. 9:05 AM. The top picture was taken about 15 to 20 seconds after the blast from 21 kilometers away, The bottom picture is 2 days following the devastation, with the Imo shipwrecked in the harbor about mid picture. It is estimated about 2000 lives were lost, and without the help of train dispatcher Vince Coleman, who lost his life in the blast, more would have died as a passenger train from here in Saint John was expected to arrive in Halifax momentarily. Mr. Coleman sent a warning via Morse Code stating, "Stop trains. Munitions ship on fire. Approaching Pier 6. Goodbye",and would not stop until he recieved a message back from the train. Mr. Coleman saved about 300 lives, but lost his own due to his heroism.

Nancy Kulp-Buddy Ebsen Feud - 1984 Nancy Kulp and Buddy Ebsen starred together for nine seasons on The Beverly Hillbillies, one of the most popular sitcoms in television history. From 1962 to 1971 Kulp played prim bank secretary Miss Jane Hathaway. Ebsen played the patriarch of the oil-rich, unsophisticated Clampett clan. In 1984 Kulp, a Democrat, decided to run for Congress in her home state of Pennsylvania. She attempted to unseat popular 12-year Republican incumbent Bud Shuster in the state's 9th District. During the campaign, Kulp made an offhand remark that all the surviving cast members from The Beverly Hillbillies were supporting her. Ebsen, a lifelong Republican, wanted to set the record straight: He dispatched a note to Kulp from his California home. It read, "Hey Nancy, I love you dearly, but you’re too liberal for me. I’ve got to go with Bud Shuster." The rift between the two actors was further exacerbated when Ebsen did a radio spot for Shuster in which he reiterated his objections to Kulp's liberal politics. Kulp believed Ebsen's intrusion into Pennsylvania politics was "cruel." Embittered, she terminated their friendship. On election day Shuster soundly trounced Kulp by about a 2:1 margin. Apparently Kulp and Ebsen only reconciled shortly before Kulp's death from cancer in 1991.

Our Gang Publicity Photo - 1926 This is a group shot of the main players from the Our Gang comedies, circa 1926. From left to right are Joe Cobb, Mickey Daniels, Jackie Condon, Mary Kornman, Johnny Downs, and Jay R. Smith. The photograph was taken to promote the Western Weld Patch Repair, represented by the ball on which Mary Kornman is sitting. The man standing behind the Our Gang kids is Clarence E. Dunlop, president of Western States Manufacturing Company of Sioux City, IA. The ball was made to demostrate the company's patching process. You can see the strips of patch rubber running up and down the ball, which is eight feet in circumference. The ball was made from nine old tubes and Western Weld patches. The photograph was issued to dealers of Western States' products. The ball was first publicly shown at the Orange County Fair, with the Our Gang kids making a public appearance to promote the product. The photograph was taken on the lawn directly behind the Hal Roach Studios administration building, which you can see on the left. The big brick building in the back is one of the two stages that were at the studio at that time.

Duane Bobick-John Tate 1979 Duane Bobick was an outstanding American amateur boxing hopeful in the early 1970s. Among his defeated opponents were future world heavyweight champion Larry Holmes and Cuba's superb Teofilo Stevenson. The favorite to win the gold medal at the 1972 Munich Olympics, Bobick was instead knocked out in the quarterfinals by Stevenson. Turning pro shortly thereafter, Bobick won his first 38 pro fights. Although the quality of many of Bobick's opponents was questionable, Bobick did defeat a handful of capable fighters such as Mike Weaver, Randy Neumann, Chuck Wepner and Scott LeDoux. NBC gave Bobick a prime-time fight versus Ken Norton on Wednesday, May 11, 1977 as a means of elevating him to a modern version of the "Great White Hope." With 42 million people watching, Norton dispatched Bobick inside of one round. (I posted that bout on this website several years ago.) After that debacle, Bobick recorded six wins and a loss to South African Kallie Koenetze, so ABC decided to give Bobick another shot at making it big. On February 17, 1979, Bobick was matched against John Tate, an American bronze medallist from 1976 (who had coincidentally also been knocked silly by Teofilo Stevenson) in a live feature bout from Indianapolis on Wide World of Sports. Surely Bobick would fare better this time, right?

Rudolph Valentino Funeral Riot Silent movie heartthrob Rudolph Valentino died from complications of pleuritis on August 23, 1926 at the age of 31. Such was Valentino's popularity that an estimated 100,000 disorderly people lined the streets of New York City to pay their respects at his funeral. The arrangements were handled by the Frank Campbell Funeral Home. The event was a combination of facrce and drama. Suicides of despondent female fans were widely reported. Windows were smashed as fans tried to force their way into the funeral parlor. What can only be described as an all-day riot erupted on August 24. More than 100 mounted officers and NYPD's Police Reserve were deployed to try to restore order. A phalanx of officers lined the streets for the remainder of the viewing. Drama occurred inside the funeral home too. Polish actress Pola Negri, claiming to be Valentino's fiancée, collapsed in hysterics while standing over the actor's coffin. Four fascist Blackshirts formed an honor guard, which was purportedly dispatched by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. Afterward the honor guard was revealed to have been comprised of actors. It was a publicity stunt orchestrated by the funeral home.
