Rod Laver Wins 1969 Grand Slam Here are a few highlights from the last set of the 1969 men's singles final at the U.S. Open. Rod Laver's four-set victory over fellow left-handed Australian Tony Roche meant Laver won all four major championships (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open) in one calendar year. No other male has achieved that feat in the Open Era of tennis. Laver's backhand is beautiful to behold. Check out how rough the grass courts were at Forest Hills that rainy year! Grass court players often wore spikes then. The score of the final was 7-9, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. It was the last year at the U.S. Open when tiebreakers weren't played.

1917 Blackboards Uncovered In June 2015 workers doing renovations at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City, OK made a remarkable discovery. When they removed the old-style blackboards to replace them with modern "smart boards" they found that four older blackboards, last used in 1917, were hidden behind them. They were wonderfully preserved. They contained beautifully written cursive handwriting for a lesson about the Pilgrims, arithmetic exercises, a music lesson, and some very good drawings to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. They had been signed and dated by the school's janitor, the last one bearing the date 'December 4th, 1917.' It is suspected that the janitor left the old blackboards as they were as a something akin to a time capsule and then installed the new blackboards on top of them. School officials say the blackboards will be preserved for their historic value.

George Best 1971 Hat-Trick The average American sports fan has probably never heard of George Best, but in the early 1970s, he was probably the best soccer player in the world. A resident of Northern Ireland, Best caught the attention of a scout for Manchester United at age 15 who reported that he had found a 'genius.' Best had incredible balance and could strike beautiful, creative, and powerful shots with both feet. In this clip from September 18, 1971 Best scores three goals for Manchester United versus West Ham United. (The third one is especially spectacular!) Unfortunately Best fell into a hedonistic lifestyle. He once joked that he had spent most of his fortune on booze, women and fast cars--and had squandered the rest! Best became an alcoholic and died way too young at age 59 in 2005.

Rhonda Fleming on Whats My Line - 1955 Beautiful red-headed screen star Rhonda Fleming is the mystery guest on an episode of What's My Line? from April 10, 1955. Clearly panelist Bennett Cerf is thrilled by her presence. Apart from the obvious reason, Cerf often wrongly guessed Fleming was the mystery challenger on several earlier episodes when she wasn't.

Helen Wills - Tennis Champion Tennis player Helen Wills (later Helen Wills Moody), a California girl, captured the U.S. National Championship at Forest Hills at age 17 in 1923--the second-youngest female to manage the feat at that time. In an era when male sportswriters believed that being a female sports champion and being a beauty were incompatible, Wills proved them wrong. Wills' natural good looks turned heads wherever she played and won. She won often. The fact that Wills captured 19 Grand Slam singles tiles between 1923 and 1938 also enhanced her popularity. One writer said of Wills that "every male between the age of six and 60 was a little bit in love with her." In a six-year period from 1927 to 1933, Wills won every singles match she played without dropping a set! Standing about 5'7" with a muscular frame, Wills rarely showed emotion on the court and was dubbed Miss Poker Face. The nickname was coined by a New York sports journalist named Ed Sullivan. (Yes--that Ed Sullivan!) Charlie Chaplin, an avid tennis fan and a fan of attractive women, said the most beautiful thing on Earth was watching Helen Wills play tennis. Wills struck the ball with great power from an irregular stance: Her body faced forward rather than to the side when she made contact with the ball. Late in her life, Wills was asked if the modern, larger-faced racquets would have improved her game, she said, "No, I always struck the ball in the middle of my racquet, so I don't think a larger size racquet would have made any difference." Wills lived to be 92 years old, passing away on New Year's Day 1998.
