Oatmeal Swirlers  when I ate it 1990 or so I believe these came out in 1989, but for the purpose of this article, I remember eating it in the early 1990's. Maybe 1990-1992? The best of the Oatmeal world? The Oatmeal everyone seems to remember, a little commercial launched in the early 90s; General Mills Oatmeal Swirlers. Everyone loved Oatmeal Swirlers, at least everyone that could remember them or does remember them and anyone that had them at one point or another in their lives. This was a brilliant oatmeal, the epitome of fun with food it was an oatmeal that not only came with it's own flavoring you could choose (six different flavors in all) But the flavouring packets were also created in such a way to urge you to cut a single snippet off and use them as drawing implements on your oatmeal creating your own artistic expression upon a steaming bowl of mush. I don't care if it sounds horrible, it wasn't; it was AWESOME. From Tic-Tac-Toe played presumably with your evil alter-ego since I assume you're not going to have another person hovering over your bowl playing a rousing game of Tic-Tac-Toe against you in your oatmeal? To happy faces and pretty much anything else you could fathom or at least manage to draw on your warm gruel with your gel incarnation of artful expression the gel delights were many and plenty. Strawberry, Maple, Brown Sugar, Grape, Orange or Milk Chocolate are the flavours that this came in so far as I can remember, this is purely off a decades old fuzzy memory and at the time I wasn't in the habit of obsessively remembering things such as these because I didn't fathom they'd ever be gone and need to be remembered so don't quote me absolutely on the flavours. Never mind that, I'm right about most of them that much I know and another thing I know is that this was an unbelievably awesome oatmeal that should have never been discontinued but was. If one major product General Mills absolutely needs to bring back it's Oatmeal Swirlers Oatmeal and in that interest, I'm bringing attention to a petition I found online. It's small now but I feel perhaps if we spread this around the retro-sites of the internet maybe we can make a dent, maybe General Mills can be shown reason and the era of the Oatmeal Swirler may once more return to us in it's glorious gooey goodness. Please consider taking part and spreading this around! There is a Pension to bring them back! http://www.change.org/petitions/general-mills-bring-back-the-product-oatmeal-swirlers-instant-oatmeal

Egad! Slovakia Beats Bulgaria 82-0 The ultimate beatdown! Here are selected highlights of the first few minutes of a European qualifying game for the 2010 Winter Olympics in which the Slovakian women's hockey team pounded Bulgaria 82-0! At the time there were only about 30 female hockey players in all of Bulgaria. They had played no games in preparation for the tournament. Earlier in the three-team tourney, Latvia had beaten Bulgaria 39-0. To put things in perspective, Canada beat Slovakia 18-0 in the Vancouver Olympic tournament.

Chris Evert vs Tracy Austin 1977 Here are highlights from a highly anticipated third-round 1977 ladies' match at Wimbledon: tiny 14-year-old Tracy Austin--with braces on her teeth and her hair in pigtails--versus defending champion Chris Evert. These highlights are a little misleading as Evert won handily 6-1, 6-1. (Check out Tracy's "Shirley Temple" tennis outfit!)

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.

This Week in Baseball - 1979 Beginning in 1977, This Week in Baseball was a 30-minute syndicated highlight show packaged by Major League Baseball. It ususally aired on stations that had the rights to broadcast MLB games. In its glory years, Mel Allen was the narrator (as he was in this brief clip from an August 1979 episode). With the establishment of ESPN and nightly sports highlight shows, TWIB gradually lost its importance. Over time TWIB changed from a general highlights show to mainly fluff pieces that focused on specific teams or players. To many fans, Mel Allen's death in 1996 was a clear milestone that marked the show's slow, irretrievable decline. It was cancelled in 2012.

1962 WS - Game 7 Highlights One of the most dramatic finishes in World Series history occurred in 1962. In the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 the New York Yankees were clinging to a tenuous 1-0 lead. The San Francisco Giants had the potential tying and winning runs on base. Ralph Terry, who had surrendered Bill Mazeroski's World Series-winning home run in 1960, was trying to retire Willie McCovey for the final out. Can he do it?

1970 Stanley Cup Semifinal - Bruins vs Hawks Before 2013, the most important NHL playoff series ever contested between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins was the 1970 Eastern Division final. Many people considered it to be the "real Stanley Cup final" because the Eastern teams were comprised of the stronger Original Six clubs while the Western Divison was comprised of the expansion teams from 1967. Chicago and Boston had both finished the 1969-70 season with 99 points. Chicago was credited with the top spot on the basis of most wins. Chicago was the slight favorite to win the series--but Boston won the series in surprising four-game sweep. (They would also sweep the overmatched St. Louis Blues in the Cup final.) Here are some highlights of the first three games from the Bruins-Blackhawks series.

9-11 Response - Gander NL The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 showed the dark side of humanity. In contrast, what occurred in Gander, Newfoundland highlighted the finest qualities of humanity. As this NBC clip shows, when the reality of the attacks set in, nearly 40 international and domestic flights scheduled to land in the northeastern U.S. were instead diverted to Gander Airport. For the 10,000 residents of Gander, taking care of "the plane people" suddenly became a collective community project for the next two days. The generosity of the locals left a lasting and overwhelmingly positive impression on the stranded travelers.
