Eiffel Tower Jump 1912 I haven't seen this clip in years! On February 4, 1912, an Austrian tailor named Franz Reichelt decided to test a homemade parachute by jumping off the Eiffel Tower. A camera crew was there to film the event.

Franz Klammer 1976 Winter Olympics By request, here is a mere portion of Franz Klammer's downhill skiing run (with commentary from Austrian TV) that earned Klammer, the local favorite, the men's downhill skiing gold medal at the 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria. This clip really doesn't do justice to Klammer's run. He appeared to be on the verge of crashing several times--yet he still won the race.

1978 World Cup Soccer Fix The 1978 World Cup tournament was held in Argentina during the era when a brutal military junta ruled the South American country. Fearing for their safety, two of the world's best players (Holland's Johann Cruyff and West Germany's Franz Beckenbauer) both boycotted the tourney. The most controversial match pitted the host Argentines versus Peru. The Peruvians were already mathematically eliminated. Argentina had to win by at least four goals to overtake Brazil in the pool standings and qualify to meet the Dutch in the final. Peru put forth an effort so dismal in a 6-0 defeat that the Peruvian players bought newspaper ads in Lima to insist the match hadn't been fixed. Years later, after the junta was toppled, documents indicated that about $50 million was paid by the Argentine government to top Peruvian soccer officials to get the desired result. Argentina defeated Holland in the final.

Funeral of King Edward VII This is a still photo of the funeral of Great Britain's King Edward VII in London on May 20, 1910. It brought together a remarkable collection of European royalty never before or afterward assembled. Mourning the 'uncle of Europe' was the new British king, Edward's son, George V. In addition, there were eight crowned heads in the procession: the German Emperor, plus the kings of Norway, Greece, Spain, Bulgaria, Denmark, Portugal, and Belgium. There were about 30 European princes among the mourners too--including Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. His assassination in 1914 was the powder keg that triggered the First World War. Most of the royalty present at Edward's funeral met inglorious ends as many European monarchies crumbled during the war or shortly afterward.

North American Soccer League The North American Soccer League was supposed to be the 'next big thing' in sports. It lasted 17 seasons but it failed to dislodge the traditional team sports from their longtime perch as fan favorites. The league began in 1968 with the merger of two small pro leagues and lasted until 1984. At the peak of the NASL's popularity in the late 1970s, it had 24 teams. The New York Cosmos (who featured Pele and Franz Beckenbauer on their roster) sometimes drew 70,000 fans to Giants Stadium. However, the league average never exceeded 15,000 fans per game and some teams struggled to draw 5,000. By its last season, the NASL had dwindled to nine teams. By the time the final NASL game was played between the Chicago Sting and Toronto Blizzard, only three teams were solvent. To Europeans, the NASL was perceived as soccer's version of an elephants' graveyard where players long past their primes could extend their careers for sizable money. The Euro stars, despite their diminishing skills, accounted for large chunks of teams' payrolls that could have been better spent fostering North American talent. Traditionalists were also put off by the NASL's gimmicks to Americanize the sport: a liberalized offside rule, game clocks that counted downward instead of upward, penalty shootouts to break ties, and a crazy points system that rewarded goals scored as well as wins. In the end, the NASL managed to alienate traditional soccer fans while failing to attract new ones.
