The Fonzie Doll Does anyone remember these? I couldn't a Wiki Reference to this, But did find the picture. This kinda has some history for me growing up. My dad and a friend of his actually scheme on an idea for a Fonzie doll and a few months later it was a reality and they missed out on it. I guess someone beat them to it. Dad was so upset by it that he refused to get me one. That's my memory of the Fonzie Doll

USA USSR 1980 Olympic Hockey It was one of the greatest moments in American sports history--but very few Americans saw it when it actually happened. The 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team was made up of college players. (North American professionals were ineligible until 1998.) The Soviet Union's state-sponsored "amateurs" had dominated Olympic hockey, winning gold medals in 1956, 1964, 1968, 1972, and 1976. In an exhibition game prior to the 1980 Olympics, the USSR manhandled the awe-struck Americans 10-3 at Madison Square Garden. However, in the medal round of the Lake Placid Olympics, the Americans pulled off an enormous upset, beating the mighty Soviets 4-3. Only those Americans who lived close enough to the Canadian border to pick up CTV's feed actually saw the game live. ABC only showed a tape-delayed broadcast later that evening. (ABC did not want to deprive soap opera fans from seeing General Hospital that day!) Watch the last 90 seconds of the game and listen as a young Al Michaels makes his famous call: 'Do you believe in miracles? Yes!' Two days later the Americans defeated Finland for the gold medal.

Muhammad Ali Says I Am King Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali graces the cover of the April 1964 edition of The Ring magazine, modestly proclaiming himself to be 'the king' after his title-winning upset over Sonny Liston in February. After his victory, Clay announced to the world that he was shedding his 'slave name.' He briefly called himself 'Cassius X' before adopting the name Muhammad Ali. Nevertheless, many media folks continued to refer to him as Cassius Clay well into the 1970s.

Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx Origin Popular folklore says that if an athlete or team appears on the cover of Sports Illustrated, something negative often happens to the subject shortly thereafter. The alleged SI 'cover jinx' began with this November 18, 1957 issue. It proclaimed the University of Oklahoma's football team--a squad that was riding a fantastic 47-game winning streak--was unbeatable. Guess what happened in their next game? Notre Dame scored a late touchdown to upset Oklahoma 28-21.

The World At War Intro Theme As a kid growing up I like most young boys was fascinated by war and guns etc. This documentary series by Thames Television UK soon gave me the idea that war was not fun. This in my opinion is still one of the best documentary series and is still as poignant now as it was then. There also was no warning telling you that some scenes may be upsetting.

Buster Douglas Kayos Mike Tyson On February 11, 1990, Buster Douglas scored perhaps the biggest upset in sports history when he knocked out Mike Tyson in Tokyo to win the world heavyweight championship. Douglas was a 42-1 underdog. I sure wish I had placed a few dollars on Buster!

Ingemar Johansson on Whats My Line This clip is from June 19, 1960. World heavyweight champion Ingemar Johansson appears as a mystery challenger on What's My Line the night before he defended his world heavyweight championship at the Polo Grounds against Floyd Patterson. Johansson had defeated Patterson in an upset in 1959. The rematch was Johansson's only title defense. Patterson won by a fifth-round knockout to regain the crown. (Perhaps Ingo should have been resting instead of appearing on live TV.)
