Steve Bartman Incident The most infamous example of a sports fan influencing the outcome of a game occurred on October 14, 2003. It was the sixth game of the National League Championship Series. The hard-luck Chicago Cubs led the Florida Marlins three games to two and 3-0 in the top of the eighth inning. With the Cubs just five outs away from advancing to the World Series for the first time since 1945, a foul ball drifted one row into Wrigley Field's seats along the third base line. Cubs' left fielder Moises Alou drifted over to make the catch, but spectator Steve Bartman--and several other fans--tried to catch the ball. Bartman (shown here with his arms outstretched) got his hands on it briefly, thus preventing Alou from having a chance to make the catch. Fan interference could not be called because the ball was actually over the seating area. Bartman was escorted from Wrigley Field to protect him from furious fellow Cub fans. Six police cars surrounded his home. Bartman has been in hiding ever since. The Marlins ended up scoring eight runs that inning and won the game 8-3. They also won the seventh game of the NLCS and the 2003 World Series.

Cousin Oliver In an attempt to rejuvenate the show, child actor Robbie Rist appeared as 'Cousin Oliver' (Carol's nephew) in the final six episodes of The Brady Bunch in 1974. By that time, though, the ratings for the show were irretrievably declining and it was going to be cancelled regardless of Rist's joining the cast. Neverthless, for more than three decades, Brady fans have been blaming Cousin Oliver for 'killing the show.'

1978 AFC Championship Game Here's a treat for you NFL fans: the first 10 minutes of NBC's broadcast of the 1978 AFC Championship game between the visiting Houston Oilers and host Pittsburgh Steelers. The game was played on January 7, 1979 in miserable conditions at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium. Cold rain, huge puddles, and partially frozen artificial turf made this contest difficult for both teams. The Steelers won the game 34-5 and then beat Dallas 35-31 in Super Bowl XIII two weeks later.

Dudley Dickerson Like most African-American performers of his generation, comic actor Dudley Dickerson played more than his fair share of Pullman porters, bell-boys, waiters, and shoe-shine boys. But from the late '30s until the mid-'50s, Dickerson was the most prominent black actor working in two-reel comedies. Contracted by Columbia's short subject department, the roly-poly supporting comic brought a refreshing energy to his portrayals of, yes, Pullman porters, shoe-shine boys, and the always demeaning "frightened Negro domestic." Closer in type to Mantan Moreland than Stepin Fetchit, Dickerson was especially good opposite Charley Chase in His Bridal Fright (1940) and the Three Stooges in A-Plumbing We Will Go (1940). Dickerson played a Pullman porter once again in his final film The Alligator People (1959), after which he concentrated on television work. The veteran comic died of cerebral thrombosis.

The Cloth Inferno  Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire It was the worst factory fire in the history of New York City occurred on March 25, 1911, in the Asch building, where the Triangle Shirtwaist Company occupied the top three of ten floors. Five hundred women, mostly Jewish immigrants between thirteen and twenty-three years old, were employed there. The owners had locked the doors leading to the exits to keep the women at their sewing machines. In less than fifteen minutes, 146 women died. The event galvanized support for additional efforts to be made to increase safety in the workplace. It also garnered support for labor unions in the garment district, and in particular for the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union. Much material was provided by several websites, among them are; Photos: Brown Brothers Franklin D.Roosevelt Library Corbis Bettmann The Kheel Center, Catherwood Library, ILR School at Cornell University. Authentic History Center Shorpy.com The Office Museum The Library of COngress Audio National Public Radio Authentic History Center The Kheel Center, Catherwood Library, ILR School at Cornell University However, two of the above mentioned in particular, I want to call attention, the first for an overall exceptionally presented look back at this tragedy and a stunning presentation of the labor movement. Truly a brilliant multi-media presentation. The Triangle Factory Fire -- Presented by The Kheel Center, Catherwood Library, ILR School at Cornell University. http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/trianglefire/ and National Public Radio ... http://www.npr.org/templates/story/st... I can not recommend those two sites too highly. They are top notch.

Manimal Introduction Here are the opening credits from another notoriously bad show: Manimal. It aired on NBC for three months in 1983. The premise of the show was that Professor Jonathan Chase, an animal behaviorist, possessed the power to transform himself into any animal at will. Of course Chase chose to use his powers to fight evil as a member of the NYPD.
