Frazier vs Zyglewicz  1969 On April 22, 1969, world heavyweight champion Joe Frazier put his title on the line in Houston against hometown favorite Dave (Ziggy) Zyglewicz. Ziggy, a huge underdog, gamely decided to take the fight to Frazier. Ninety-six seconds after the opening bell the contest was over. The vanquished Zyglewicz's wife later told reporters it was akin to "entering a Volkswagen in the Indianapolis 500."

ESPN Reveals 1973 King-Riggs Match was Fixed Confirming many people's suspicions that have lingered for 40 years, an expose on ESPN.com this week showed strong evidence that Bobby Riggs deliberately lost his famous Battle of the Sexes tennis match to Billie Jean King as a way to erase his gambling debts with organized crime. The 55-year-old Riggs had throttled Margaret Court, the world's top female tennis player, in a televised match on Mother's Day 1973 6-2, 6-1. Four months later King, the defending Wimbledon champion, beat Riggs in surprisingly easy fashion 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 before a big TV audience and more than 30,000 fans at the Houston Astrodome--despite being a 5-2 underdog at Las Vegas sports books. When one views the Riggs-King match with a critical eye, Riggs played passively and listlessly--not remotely the same way he played against Court in May. Riggs' shots were soft and usually placed directly at King. Riggs, the 1939 men's Wimbledon champion, whose serve was impeccably accurate, also double-faulted at four critical points in the match--including set point in the first set. Several all-time male tennis legends, including Don Budge who achieved the Grand Slam in 1938, expressed doubts about the honesty of the match, but their doubts were dismissed as wounded male pride at the time. According to the ESPN story, Riggs was anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 in debt to the mob. A witness, now 79, who was close to the mob, told ESPN he had overheard the discussions regarding the fix. Riggs came up with a two-part plan: In exchange for having his gambling debts expunged, Riggs would goad Court into a TV match with sexist comments knowing full well he could beat her soundly. He would then purposely lose to King as a way for the mob to make a killing in wagers on King at long odds. Riggs died in 1995 at age 77. King was among the last people to speak to him.

Vanishing TV Character - Simone the Dog Does anyone remember the pooch the Partridge Family had during the show's first season? It was called Simone. (Apparently one of the sitcom's creators had a male dog named Simon, so he just feminized the name for the female TV dog.) Simone only appeared in a handful of episodes. Most famously, in an episode titled But The Memory Lingers On, Simone and the human Partridges are sprayed by a skunk that climbed aboard their bus during a picnic stop. Even though Simone vanished without explanation after just a few episodes, its caricature lived on: The family band's logo (which appeared on Chris Partridge's drums) showed the forgotten dog throughout the four-season run of the show.

JFK and Jackie on Home - 1957 Home was an NBC daytime program billed as the "weekday women's magazine of the air." It was hosted by Arlene Francis during its three-year run from 1954 to 1957. Created by Home magazine, it was basically a follow-up to NBC's Today show. In this clip from an April 1957 episode, Arlene interviews Senator John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie, although the focus is more on how the latter copes with being the wife of a U.S. senator. This clip shows what is supposed to be a typical morning for Jackie: walking the family dog, shopping, going to the dry cleaners, etc. At the end of the clip JFK offers some advice that rings true 58 years later.
