Christmas Truce 1914 One of the most remarkable incidents in history was the impromptu truce that took place on the Western Front on Christmas Day 1914. Beginning late on Christmas Eve, the entrenched British and German troops began serenading each other with songs and carols. By the next day a full truce was on, with soldiers and officers from both sides fraternizing and exchanging gifts. There was even an international soccer match played with teams comprised of warring soldiers. On December 26, 1914 the First World War started again. How sad. Ninety-four years later, in 2008, soldiers from the same opposing regiments reenacted the famous Christmas Truce in the same location.

Final Day of World War I One of the seldom discussed parts of the First World War was the tragic final day--November 11, 1918. The Armistice had been signed at 5:10 a.m. that day, but would not come into effect until 11 a.m. Accordingly, the fighting continued on the Western Front for nearly six more hours, essentially for no reason. Historians estimate that as many as 10,000 casualties occurred that final day. (About 3,000 were Americans.) This is the final part of a BBC documentary about the final day of the Great War. It is worth watching!

Viktor Tikhonov - USSR Hockey Coach One of the most familiar faces of Soviet Union hockey was the dour puss of coach Viktor Tikhonov who ran the Central Red Army club team and the Soviet National team with an iron fist and almost unchecked success for 20 years. Tikhonov was born on June 4, 1930. As a player, Tikhonov was a defenceman with the Soviet Air Force and Dynamo Moscow clubs, but he wasn't well known internationally until he became the head coach of both the Central Red Army team and the Soviet Union's national team in 1977. At one point Red Army won 13 consecutive Soviet Elite League titles--which isn't all that surprising considering Tikhonov had the authority of a Red Army general and could immediately draft any player into the armed forces if he showed promise. The USSR won eight IIHF world titles under Tikhonov plus Olympic gold medals in 1984, 1988 and 1992. The USSR's national team also won the 1979 Challenge Cup and 1981 Canada Cup. Tikhonov had power over his players' lives and used it to control every aspect of his team. They routinely trained together for 50 weeks per year while living in army barracks. Canadian hockey great Phil Esposito said the so-called Soviet "amateurs" were more professional than NHL players. Humorless and ruthless, Tikhonov was known for his dictatorial coaching style. He exercised control over his players' lives. His expected absolute obedience--or else. His players quietly called him "the last Stalinist." With tongue-in-cheek humor, western media often referred to Tikhonov as "Chuckles." Tikhonov constantly feared his players would defect if they ever got the slightest chance. Anyone he merely suspected of defecting would be left off teams planning to travel outside the Iron Curtain. In 1991, for instance, he cut Pavel Bure, Valeri Zelepukin, Evgeny Davydov, and Vladimir Konstantinov just before the 1991 Canada Cup. All of them had been drafted by NHL teams, and Tikhonov suspected they were flight risks. Even after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Tikhonov stayed on as the national team coach of Russia for a few more years, but the newer players rebelled against his harsh authoritarian ways. Tikhonov mellowed slighty before going into retirement in 1996. After his retirement, Tikhonov lobbied the Russian government for more attention and better financing for the national team. His grandson plays on the current Russian national squad. Tikhonov died in November 2014.

The Hero - Failed Sitcom The Hero was an NBC sitcom that lasted just 16 episodes--debuting on September 8, 1966 and last airing on January 5, 1967. Richard Mulligan starred as Sam Garret. Garret played a Matt Dillon-type TV western hero who was actually a hopeless klutz in his home life. Mariette Hartley played his wife Ruth. Here is the opening montage.

Kodiak - Failed TV Drama Here's an ABC promotional clip for Kodiak, a new 30-minute 1974 police show set in Alaska. Kodiak starred Clint Walker as Cal (Kodiak) McKay of the Alaska State Patrol. Walker had seldom been seen on television since his days on the western Cheyenne, which ended in 1963. Kodiak was doomed as ABC slotted it against NBC's megahit Sanford and Son. Poor ratings caused its cancellation after just four weeks. Here's a tidbit of trivia: Kodiak was the show that replaced The Brady Bunch in ABC's 8 p.m. time slot on Fridays.

(Ghost) Riders in the Sky "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend" is a country and cowboy-style song. It was written on June 5, 1948 by Stan Jones. A number of versions were crossover hits on the pop charts in 1949. The ASCAP database lists the song as "Riders in the Sky" (title code: 480028324), but the title has been written as "Ghost Riders", "Ghost Riders in the Sky", and "A Cowboy Legend". [#2 country, #1 pop, 1949] Bucky Pizzarelli and Don Costa were on the original recording session in Chicago. The song tells a folk tale of a cowboy who has a vision of red-eyed, steel-hooved cattle thundering across the sky, being chased by the spirits of damned cowboys. One warns him that if he does not change his ways, he will be doomed to join them, forever "trying to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies". Jones said that he had been told the story when he was 12 years old by an old cowboy friend. The story resembles the northern European mythic Wild Hunt. The melody is based on the song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home". According to Robby Krieger, it inspired the classic Doors song "Riders on the Storm". The song was also the inspiration for the Marvel Comics Western character "Ghost Rider" later renamed Phantom Rider (not to be confused with the later character named "Ghost Rider").

Bedtime For Brezhnev Poster 'From out of the west they dusted off their guns...to protect the world they knew and the women they loved!' One of my university professors had a copy of this amusing poster for a fictitious movie on his office wall. Check out the supporting cast! As in all westerns, the good guys wore the white hats; the bad guys wore the black hats.
