Smoke and mirrors !

The one play that inspired TV execs to make instant replay and
multiple camera angles mandatory at most sporting events.

There weren't many hockey moments there - here's why (I was born in Canada so love my hockey but couldn't help laughing at the truth of this)

Here you go moreeq, the proverbial Grapes in drapes to provide enough entertainment this side of the prairie. The second one is better and by better I mean longer.

You had to really hear the full race. I was offshore at the time, so listened on the radio. But here's a snatch,

Seriously?!!! they've go to be in their 80's by now. Thank goodness I can't tune in to the CBC from here and that the only tweeting I know of was done by a little yellow bird


How does one embed videos? Does it need a mod's touch?

How stunningly mundane, boring, trite and time wasting is that. Can anyone explain why people bother? (I guess I'm showing my age ... I just sounded like my father)

Agreed, his is a rather ridiculous feed but that's not to say there aren't worthy ones.

I was born in April, 1951, and we lived in the Bronx - within shouting distance of Yankee Stadium.

Six months later, in October, I was asleep in my crib while my mother was in another room with her girlfriend as they watched on TV the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants - who had ended the season in a tie for first place - compete in the final game a three-game playoff to decide who would win the National League Pennant, and go to the World Series.

As I lay sleeping in my crib, the game had progressed to the 9th inning, when...


As my mother would tell the story - she and her girlfriend - both Giants fans - began hugging and screaming and clapping and jumping up and down so loudly it woke me from my baby nap and I began to cry. My mom had to run in and hush me back to sleep.

The Giants would go on to meet the Yankees in the World Series, where they would lose in six games to the "Bronx Bombers".

It would be the last time those teams would meet in a so-called "Subway Series"; because by the time they met again in the series, eleven years later, the Giants had since moved to San Fransisco.
