This Day In History – October 6

1945

Chicago Tavern owner Billy Sianis, owner of The Billy Goat Tavern, buys seat for his goat for Game 4 of World Series

He was escorted out of the game, and that was when he cast The Curse Of The Goat on the Cubs. Apparently it’s worked, they haven’t been back to the World Series since.

Actually in 2003, they were close. Until this happened:

1961

U.S. president John F. Kennedy advised American families to build or buy bomb shelters to protect them in the event of a nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union.

Those were scary times!

Dang hippies. Other states soon followed!

This was also the day he joined the Grand Ole Opry! Also that same day – Alan Jackson made his first ever appearance on the show!

1991

Elizabeth Taylor married Larry Fortensky at Michael Jackson’s estate near Los Angeles.

They were married in Louisiana.

and then lastly…

2006

John Jordan “Buck” O’Neil, who was the first African American coach in Major League Baseball, died at 94. The long time Kansas City Monarch sure left his stamp on KC sports.

Ever since he passed away, various different people who serve their community get to sit in the Buck O’Neil Legacy seat at Kaufman Stadium! It rewards people who are charitable to the city of Kansas City, like Buck was!

This Day In History – October 3

1913

A one percent federal income tax was signed into law

2009 

Authorities arrested 48-year-old Michael David Barrett for allegedly filming ESPN sports reporter Erin Andrews in the nude through hotel peepholes and posting the videos on the Internet.

I must admit, I saw the video. It was the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen. I never felt dirtier afterwards.

2011

After spending four years in an Italian prison for murder, Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted in the murder of Knox’s former roommate Merideth Kircher.

Monday Night Football pulled Hank Williams Jr.‘s long-running intro “Are You Ready for Some Football?” over remarks Williams made about President Barack Obama.

North Dakota High School Bans Tight Pants on Girls

A high school in North Dakota is banning female students from wearing tight pants including, leggings, jeggings and skinny jeans.

School officials had girls watch two scenes from the movie, “Pretty Woman” and told the girls their attire looked like the main character’s who is a prostitute.

School officials said they aren’t doing it to objectify the girls, but to keep boys focused on their work. The assistant principal said it’s a way to keep teachers from being distracted and having uncomfortable conversations about what students are wearing.

Parents believe the school should be focused on preventing other problems like bullying.
