The Play – 1982 California vs Stanford football game

January 27th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Football (Gridiron)

One of the most famous last minute plays in the history of College Football is this dramatic finish to the 1982 California vs Stanford football game. It is known as ‘The Play’, as there has never been anything like it and maybe never will. It finishes with an amazing touchdown after five lateral passes. California’s Kevin Moen not only had to negotiate his way past the remnants of Stanford’s defense to get into the end zone, but also crashed through members of Stanford’s marching band who had entered the field believing the Cardinals had already won the match. The final score was California 25 Stanford 20. The final minute of the game is shown here.

January 12th, 2010 · No Comments · Figure Skating

Some amateur film footage from the Winter Olympic Games in Squaw Valley in 1960. Not the original soundtrack (I don’t think Enya was around then), but great to see what the crowd would see. Not the fanfare that you will get these days.
