Jane Blalock Cheating Controversy In 1972, 27-year-old Jane Blalock was suspended by the LPGA for cheating. Blalock was accused of shenanigans when she marked her ball. Specifically, Blalock was thought to be replacing her ball slightly ahead of the marker. Blalock sued the LPGA. She did not clear her name, but her lawsuits were responsible for the LPGA being deemed in voilation of federal antitrust laws. Years later Blalock issued a vague apology, but she did not specifically admit any wrongdoing. Despite winning 27 career LPGA titles, Blalock has not been inducted into the LPGA's Hall of Fame.

Alex Haley Plagiarism Scandal 1978 In 1978, Alex Haley, the renowned author of Roots, came under fire in a plagiarism lawsuit launched by fellow author Harold Coulander. Haley claimed he had spent a decade researching his heritage for his historical novel, which in 1977 was adapted as a wildly successful TV miniseries. That same year he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and the Spingarn Medal for the book. A year later his reputation was forever marred. Courlander went to the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York to charge that Roots was substantially plagiarized from Courlander's own novel The African. Courlander's witnesses included Michael Wood an English professor at Columbia University and an expert on plagiarism. Wood opined in a report that the evidence of plagiarism in Roots was 'clear and irrefutable' and that the copying of passages was 'significant and extensive.' After a five-week trial in federal district court, Courlander and Haley settled the case, with Haley making a financial settlement of $650,000 and a statement that 'Alex Haley acknowledges and regrets that various materials from The African by Harold Courlander found their way into his book Roots.' Haley claimed the appropriation of Courlander's passages had been unintentional. Haley orginally maintained he had never heard of The African, much less read it. Shortly after the trial, however, Joseph Bruchac, an instructor of black literature at Skidmore College, came forward to swear in an affidavit that in 1970 or 1971--five or six years before the publication of Roots--he had discussed The African with Haley and had given his 'own personal copy of The African to Haley.' In a later interview with BBC Television, Judge Ward stated, 'Alex Haley perpetrated a hoax on the public.'

Benny Hill Before cable television we only had the three networks and channel 50 uhf. Then there was CBC channel 9 Windsor, Canada. Withe the Winter Olympics coming up in a few days I know what channel I'll be watching most. Channel 9 used to be only in the Windsor area now it is National. It stirred up a few people to say the least.

Steffi Graf SI Cover 1989 Fraulein Forehand, the great Steffi Graf, was the cover subject of this issue of Sports Illustrated from 1989. Armed with a powerful inside-out forehand and a classic slice backhand, Graf dominated tennis for a little while--capturing a rare grand slam in 1988. Despite SI deeming Graf to be invincible, Monica Seles was on the rise and would soon rival the formidable German for supremacy in women's tennis.
