    "The Flyers of that era redefined the sport of hockey in a positively negative way, forever cementing in the minds of many that hockey was a game played by brutes who did nothing but beat each other senseless with their sticks and fists. At the literal center of this orchestrated mayhem was Robert Clarke, then known as Bobby, or "Clarkie" to the local morons. Clarke was an impresario at the "stick and move," which you probably think of as a boxing term, but as it pertained to Clarke referred to the art of gutting your opponent with your Sher-wood and then running away. The fistic action was provided by thugs such as Dave "The Hammer" Schultz, a guy whom we really should thank and not criticize, because the classic movie "Slap Shot" was conceived with the Hammer in mind."

    Legionnaires' Disease 

    "In July 1976, the American Legion held a convention at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia to celebrate the country's bicentennial. Within two days after the start of the event, one veteran after another became ill with an acute pneumonia illness. Ultimately, 221 patients were stricken, and 34 patients eventually died of this mysterious epidemic which came to be known as Legionnaires' Disease."
    Garrett, Laurie. The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance. New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1994.
