Jacques Plante, 1959: After getting hit in the face with a puck three minutes into a game, Plante went for repairs and later returned in the same game wearing a mask, becoming the first NHL Goalie to do so

That hit broke his nose and he had to get stitches. When Plante returned from the locker room, he was wearing the crude home-made goaltender mask that he had been using in practices. His coach, Toe Blake was livid, as he believed the mask would limit Plante’s vision but he had no other goaltender to call upon and Plante refused to return to the goal unless he wore the mask. Blake agreed on the condition that Plante discard the mask when the cut healed. Plante and the Canadiens went on a winning streak while he wore the mask. The first game he played without, they lost, so back on it went.

Aly Raisman joins 130 women saying the US Olympic team doctor abused them

Aly Raisman, a six-time Olympic medalist and captain of the gold medal-winning 2012 and 2016 US women’s gymnastics teams, has said in a new interview with CBS’s 60 Minutesthat Larry Nassar, the disgraced former US women’s national gymnastics team doctor, sexually abused her.

Raisman, who is now 23 years old, was first treated by Nassar when she was 15. Her account of her experiences with Nassar is similar to that of her 2012 teammate McKayla Maroney, who came forward in October and said that Nassar drugged and abused her on multiple occasions, starting when she was 13.


Vince McMahon wiping the loogey from his face after Bret Hart spit on him for The Montreal Screwjob

In 1997, Bret Hart was a Canadian wrestler for the WWF who had just agreed to jump ship to WCW. At the time he was WWF champion and his last televised match was due to take place at Survivor Series. Vince McMahon, the owner of the WWF, wanted him to drop the belt to Shawn Michaels but Bret refused. He stated that he didn’t want to lose the belt in Canada but it was also possibly because Bret and Michaels disliked each other and Bret didn’t want to give him the belt.

Bret promised he would drop the belt at a house show before leaving the company but Vince was terrified of a repeat of a previous incident when WWF Woman’s Champion Medusa jumped ship before they could take the belt from her and on her first WCW appearence threw the WWF Woman’s Championship into a trash can. This was embarrasing for the company and at the time they were being tanked by WCW in the ratings, so Vince was determined to avoid another embarrasment.

Despite agreeing to Bret’s demands to win the match at Survivor Series, Vince conspired with Michaels and the referee to ensure the match ended in Michaels winning the championship. The match ended when Michael’s put Bret in the Sharpshooter, which was Bret’s signature move. Bret did not tap out but Vince called for the referee to ring the bell and declare Michaels the winner. Cue pandamonium as fans become angry and Bret spits in Vince’s face.

In the aftermath, Bret left for WCW and Vince made a TV appearence the following week declaring that he didn’t screw Bret and that “Bret Screwed Bret”. Fans were furious about this for a long time. Despite his popularity Michaels was often booed whenever he wrestled in Canada. It also gave Vince a more prominant role in front of the camera, as despite being the owner his previous on camera persona was as a nice guy ring announcer. Vince would use the reaction of the Montreal Screwjob incident to craft a TV persona called Mr.Mcmahon, a megalomanic owner, that would become hugely popular and a significant part of WWF’s success in the late 90s.

Bret, Vince and Michaels would not speak for a long time but would eventually bury the hatchet. Years later Bret actually returned for a short time and even had a match against Vince at Wrestlemania. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame and his neice is an active wrestler in the company.
