1984: Without the Soviet Union and 13 other Eastern Bloc communist countries, the Summer Olympics begin in Los Angeles with the Opening Ceremonies. Due to the money lost by Montreal in 1976, Los Angeles was the only city with a bid for the games. Thanks to using many preexisting venues including the LA Coliseum built for the 1932 Summer Games, the Los Angeles Games end up being most successful Olympics and helped revive interest in the games.

Managing Legends
The sleepy hamlet of Cooperstown, New York one weekend a year turns into baseball heaven as the game's biggest legends return to welcome in a new class of Hall of Famers. This year's class on the 75th anniversary of the Hall of Fame's opening featured three of the baseball's best managers, a pair of aces and a slugger. Tony LaRussa who won World Series with both the Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals for more than 30 years was baseball's smartest skippers, while Joe Torre was the right man to rebuild the New York Yankees into a dynasty with four titles in five years. They were joined by Bobby Cox, who helped the Braves 11 straight division championships. All good managers need strong pitching and Cox was joined by two of his best arms Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine who helped lead that Braves dynasty, while Frank Thomas who helped power the Chicago White Sox into a contender rounded out the class of 2014.
