George Foreman Regains Title at 45 George Foreman was an intimidating bruiser when he won the world heavyweight title by demolishing Joe Frazier in 1973. He surprisingly lost the crown to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in 1974. By 1977 Foreman was out of boxing and was making a living preaching in Texas. With funds getting a little low, Foreman made what many fans thought was a crazy comeback in 1987 at age 38. Much slower than he had been in his prime, Foreman could still hit with great power, though. Now a fan favorite because of his new likable persona, Foreman had a series of comeback wins. He lost a title try to Evander Holyfield in 1991 at age 42. Three years later he was given another shot against new champion Michael Moorer. Trailing badly on the scorecards entering the tenth round, the 45-year-old Foreman shocked the world with an historic knockout blow, as this clip shows. Listen to Jim Lampley's succinct call: "It happened! It happened!" Also listen to the excited, joyous cheering of the pro-Foreman crowd when Moorer hits the deck. It ranks as one of the magical moments in sports history.

The Rutles Piggy In The Middle Many considered the Rutles' Tragical History Tour more tragic than historical. When it was broadcast on the CBC on April 1st, 1968, it was even shown upside-down. People didn't know what to make of it. I realize now that what the Rutles were saying is that we ourselves should be upside-down when we were watching it. Then it would all make sense. Hundreds of young people all over the world joined me in doing just that. We were all part of something special. In retrospect I think it was all about the peace movement. It's hard to fight when you're upside-down. Mind you, the movie still didn't make sense, but the music was amazing.

Babe Dahlgren Replaces Lou Gehrig On Tuesday, May 2, 1939, Lou Gehrig did not play for the New York Yankees for the first time in nearly 14 years, a streak that lasted 2,130 consecutive games. Gehrig's final game was two days earlier on April 30. His replacement at first base that day in Detroit was Ellsworth (Babe) Dahlgren a ballplayer who would likely be known to only hard-core fans if not for his connection to Lou Gehrig's "iron man" streak. This short clip is from a 1989 interview in which the 77-year-old Dahlgren recalls the historic game in which Gehrig sat himself out.

1917 Blackboards Uncovered In June 2015 workers doing renovations at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City, OK made a remarkable discovery. When they removed the old-style blackboards to replace them with modern "smart boards" they found that four older blackboards, last used in 1917, were hidden behind them. They were wonderfully preserved. They contained beautifully written cursive handwriting for a lesson about the Pilgrims, arithmetic exercises, a music lesson, and some very good drawings to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. They had been signed and dated by the school's janitor, the last one bearing the date 'December 4th, 1917.' It is suspected that the janitor left the old blackboards as they were as a something akin to a time capsule and then installed the new blackboards on top of them. School officials say the blackboards will be preserved for their historic value.

New York Giants Last Game - 1957 On September 29, 1957 the New York Giants--one of baseball's most storied teams--played their last ever game at the historic Polo Grounds in Manhattan. They lost 9-1 to the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. In mid-season of that year the Giants announced they were moving to San Francisco for the 1958 season. Not long afterward the Brooklyn Dodgers announced their move to Los Angeles. Suddenly the inter-city rivalry between the Dodgers and the Giants was moving 3,000 miles westward. This is an excellent photo montage of New York Giant memories presented alongside the description of the goings-on as reported in the following day's New York Times.

Dicovery - Sunday Morning Kids Show From October 1962 to September 1971, ABC aired a "highbrow series for children" called Discovery. Historical and cultural themes were emphasized in each program. In its first season it began as a 25-minute weekday series, but failed to attract much of an audience. In 1963 it switched to a Sunday morning timeslot where it remained for the duration of its run. Hosted by Virginia Gibson (later Bill Owen joined Gibson as a co-host), the show is fondly remembered by children of that era because it was, for years, the only network show that aired on Sunday mornings that was not an adult-oriented political or news panel show. Each year that Discovery aired it was followed by the last two digits of the year. He is the opening and closing of a Discovery '68 episode.
