1978 NHL Playoff Game Ah, the late 1970s when men were men and hockey was entertaining! (Look at how many players didn't wear helmets!) This is a ten-minute clip of a Stanley Cup semifinal game from May 11, 1978 with the Boston Bruins hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at old Boston Garden. Bob Cole of Hockey Night in Canada provides the play-by-play description. The Bruins won the game 6-3 and took the series four games to one.

Shibe Park Another one of baseball's famous stadiums that is no longer standing: Shibe Park in Philadelphia. Built in 1909, it was the home of the American League's Philadelphia Athletics until the team relocated to Kansas City in 1955. The park underwent one name change in its history. It was renamed Connie Mack Stadium to honor the longtime owner and manager of the A's. The National League's Phillies became the tenants after the A's left Philadelphia. It was their home ballpark until 1970.

1964 Notre Dame-Navy Game Here are the condensed highlights of the 1964 Notre-Dame-Navy game played at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. The game is noteworthy for two reasons: It featured a matchup of Navy QB Roger Staubach, the 1963 Heisman Trophy winner, and Notre Dame QB John Huarte, who would win the Heisman in 1964. The game was also noteworthy for being the first of Notre Dame's 43 consecutive wins over Navy.

Kate Smith Philadelphia Flyers Good Luck Charm One of sport's quirky and quaint traditions is the Philadelphia Flyers' use of Kate Smith as a good luck charm. The NHL team has a remarkable record whenever her version of God Bless America is played before games. Here is the late Kate making a surprise live appearance before a game in the 1976 Stanley Cup finals. (It didn't help; Montreal swept the Flyers in four straight games that spring.)

Bill Lee Postgame Interview 1979 Bill (Spaceman) Lee of the Montreal Expos is interviewed on the field after pitching a shutout versus the Philadelphia Phillies at Olympic Stadium on May 30, 1979. The quirky, free-spirited Lee had grown a beard after being acquired by the Expos. Lee was an integral part of the three Expos clubs (1979, 1980, and 1981) that came oh so close to winning the National League pennant.

Worst MLB Team - 1916 Athletics The 1927 New York Yankees are usually considered by baseball history buffs to be the greatest MLB team ever assembled. But which team was the worst? My choice for the worst baseball team (of the 20th century, at least) goes to the pitiful 1916 Philadelphia Athletics. They finished at the bottom of the American League standings that year with an awful 36-117-1 record. What makes the A's horrendous showing so remarkable was that Philadelphia had won the American League in pennant in 1910, 1911, 1913 and 1914--and the World Series in three of those seasons. However, the A's were stunningly upset by the Boston Braves in the 1914 World Series. Miffed owner/manager Connie Mack quickly dismantled his superb team and attempted to restock it with castoffs and college hopefuls. The A's finished last seven years in a row before rebuilding their dynasty in the late 1920s. The 1916 Athletics are of particular interest to me because I'm a co-author of the book shown here: A's Bad As It Gets. (Blame my publisher for the punny title.) It is now available through McFarland Publishers or it can be purchased online via Amazon. Trust me: if you're a baseball fan you'll enjoy it! After the huge number of posts I've made on this website over the years (nearly 2,700) for everyone's enjoyment, I figure I'm entitled to one shameless, self-promoting commercial announcement.

Al Martino passes at age 82 Singer Al Martino, who played the Frank Sinatra-type role of Johnny Fontane in "The Godfather," died Tuesday afternoon at his childhood home. He was 82. Publicist Sandy Friedman, of the Rogers & Cowan public relations firm, confirmed Martino's death in the Philadelphia suburb of Springfield, in Delaware County, but didn't cite a cause. Starting in 1952, Martino was known for hit songs including "Here in My Heart," "Spanish Eyes," "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "Volare."

Eddie Waitkus Shooting 1949 Ballplayer Eddie Waitkus was the shooting victim of an obsessed female fan. Waitkus had broken into the National League with the Chicago Cubs in 1941 but was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1949. Nineteen-year-old Ruth Ann Steinhagen of Chicago had become obsessed with Waitkus as a 14-year-old. When he was traded to the Phillies, she snapped. During a Phillies' road trip to Chicago on June 14, 1949, Steinhagen checked into the Edgewater Beach Hotel where the Phillies were staying. She left a note for Waitkus to come to her hotel room to discuss urgent business. Believing the note to be from a friend of a friend, Waitkus arrived at Steinhagen's room and was invited in. Steinhagen briefly excused herself and returned with a rifle. Steinhagen blurted, 'You're not going to bother me anymore!' Then she shot Waitkus in the chest and calmly phoned the hotel's front desk to report the shooting. Waitkus nearly died on the operating table several times, but pulled through. He continued his major league career until 1955. Steinhagen was never charged with a crime. Instead she was committed to a mental institution. After three years she was deemed sane and released. Waitkus' shooting inspired Bernard Malamud's story 'The Natural.' Waitkus died in 1972, at age 53, of esophogeal cancer. Steinhagen is said to still live on Chicago's north side.
