1924 Olympic Rugby Final You may have to watch this clip through the appropriate link. Nevertheless, here are a few minutes of the gold-medal rugby match from the 1924 Paris Olympics. It was the fourth time rugby had been part of the Summer Olympics. In 1924 only three countries entered teams: the United States, Romania, and France. In the round-robin event, France crushed Romania 61-3. The Americans blasted the Romanians 37-0 to set up a championship encounter against the French. The host French showed great animosity against the American team (that was mostly made up of students from Stanford University). The French refused to allow the Americans to have anything resembling a practice field, so they ended up working out in a local park. The Americans were kicked out of their hotel and also lost about $4,000 in valuables when their supposedly secure locker room was broken into by thieves. Undeterred, the Americans, despite being 5:1 underdogs in wagering, thumped the French 17-3 to take the gold medals. They needed a police escort to leave the stadium safely. One American substitute was knocked cold when he was struck over the head with a spectator's walking stick! Rugby has not been in any Olympics since that time, but it will return to the Games in 2016.

Pat Summerall 1930-2013 Pat Summerall, one of the great voices in sports broadcasting, died on April 16, 2013. He would have turned 83 on May 10. A former NFL placekicker, Summerall started broadcasting football for CBS in 1964 and became a play-by-play man in 1974. He is best remembered for his calm, restrained manner in contrast to his excitable longtime booth partner John Madden. Summerall was also a fixture at CBS' coverage of The Masters golf tourney and the U.S. Open Tennis Championships for many years. Once CBS lost its NFL contract in 1993, Summerall and Madden joined Fox's NFL coverage. Sadly, CBS would no longer allow Summerall to cover golf or tennis despite being with the network for nearly 40 years.

Latrell Sprewell - Outrageous Quote Former NBA player Latrell Sprewell had a special gift: He could alienate just about everyone with his astonishing lack of responsibility. In 1997, as a member of the Golden State Warriors, Sprewell was suspended for 68 games after he attempted to choke his own coach who, during a practice, had asked him to make sharper passes. As bad as that incident was, Sprewell is probably best known for rejecting a three-year, $21-million contract extension in 2004 offered by the Minnesota Timberwolves. The amount actually was a pay reduction compared to the $14.6 million he was making in 2004-05 as a 34-year-old. Insulted by the offer, Sprewell publicly expressed outrage, declaring, "I have a family to feed... If [Minnesota general manager] Glen Taylor wants to see my family fed, he better cough up some money. Otherwise, you're going to see these kids in one of those Sally Struthers commercials soon." Sports Illustrated's Rick Reilly had a field day with Sprewell's assertion that he could not feed his family on such a salary. Reilly pointed out, among other things, that Sprewell could buy 18 McDonald's franchises with his $8.3-million-after-taxes income. After declining the Timberwolves' extension, and, having once more drawn the ire of fans and sports media, Sprewell had the worst season of his career in the final year of his contract. In the summer of 2005, the Denver Nuggets, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Houston Rockets all expressed interest in signing Sprewell, but no agreements were reached. Sprewell later lost custody of his children, had his home and yacht reposessed, and declared personal bankruptcy.

Tennis Romance - 1974 Some historians point to 1974 as the year when pro tennis made its first major impact on the sports world. Adding to the allure of the game was a romance between the top male player in the world and the top female player: Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert. Each won at Wimbledon that summer and a wedding date was set for November. Alas, their relationship fell apart. Jimmy has been married to Patti McGuire, Playboy Magazine's 1977 Playmate of the Year, since 1979. Chrissie has had three marriages end in divorce.

Near Air Disaster - 1983 Gimli Glider Incident A mistake in metric measurement nearly caused a catastrophic airplane disaster over Canadian airspace in the summer of 1983. Known to Canadians as "the Gimli Glider," on Saturday, July 23, 1983, Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767-233 jet, ran out of fuel at an altitude of 41,000 feet. It was about halfway through a flight originating in Montreal en route to Edmonton with a stopover in Ottawa. Although both engines conked out due to lack of fuel, the crew was able to glide the aircraft safely to an emergency landing at Gimli Industrial Park Airport, a former Royal Canadian Air Force base in the small community of Gimli, Manitoba. An investigation later found out the airplane had run out of jet fuel because it had wrongly been fueled in litres rather than imperial gallons. Luckily for the 61 passengers onboard, the flight crew was familiar with glider flying techniques and was able to safely land the huge aircraft. With some difficulty, the airplane touched down on a small runway that had recently been converted from an abandoned military airstrip to to a race track. A race event was underway at the time but was stopped in time to allow the aircraft to land. An official investigation later revealed "company failures and a chain of human errors that combined to defeat built-in safeguards."

1912 Olympics - Standing Long Jump The summer Olympics used to include standing jumping events: long jump, high jump and triple jump. Here's a film clip of the standing long jump competition from the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden. The 1912 Games were the last Olympics to feature standing jump disciplines. Norway is the last remaining country to feature them in their own national athletics championships. The United States Air Force Academy and Canada's Royal Military College still use the standing long jump as a way to gauge the physical fitness levels of their students.
