The Olympic Games opened in Berlin, as Adolf Hitler presided over the festivities and opening ceremonies.
Does history repeat itself?
The movie American Graffiti opened!
Where were you, in ’62?!
Happy Birthday to MTV!
Here was the first video ever shown on MTV:
…back when they used to play videos!
Now it’s all:
I love both of those shows, actually!
Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley announced they had been married 11 weeks earlier in a private ceremony in the Dominican Republic.
It made sense for her to be married to Nicholas Cage, but the whole world is still trying to figure this one out.
The I-35W Mississippi River Bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota, collapsed during the evening rush hour!
By the way, here’s a photo of the new bridge, the I-35 Saint Anthony Falls Bridge
and then lastly!
Nothing like cheating in the Olympics!
Eight women’s badminton doubles players were disqualified from the 2012 Summer Olympics in London for attempting to lose on purpose or “not using one’s best efforts to win a match.”
Why would you train to become an Olympian, and then not try to kick everyone’s tails?!
I hate losing in Checkers!
But then again…
WHY IS BADMINTON AN OLYMPIC SPORT?!
