For the first time in Sunday Night Football history, a game at San Francisco's Candlestick Park was delayed when the lights went out.  Niners management learned a good lesson.  You can leave your heart in San Francisco and nothing happens, but forget to pay your electric bill and. . .

Items of Hollywood memorabilia was sold including props and set decorations from "The Wizard of Oz."  Dorothy's famous ruby slippers went unsold, though.  Actually, the auction was canceled when the auctioneer found a Munchkin curled up napping in the left one.

Fans are anxiously awaiting the start of the Beach Boys' "50th Anniversary Tour," scheduled for next summer.  Should bring back memories.  In the promotional video, several of the Boys are actually seen riding the waves -- using walkers balanced between two surfboards.

You can now purchase for only $250 a share of the Green Bay Packers that accrues no dividends and may not be sold or traded.  There's absolutely no profit in owning any.  It's like owning, say, a share in the company that makes "Jerry Sandusky Bath & Shower Fixtures."

WakiLeaks: History Declassified 2000 (Vol. One) is now available on Kindle for $2.99

Compiled from Bob's newsletter "Funnyside Up" published in 2000. This is a yuck and chuckle-filled stroll down memory lane to a time before the Bush administration had inflicted its damage -- a time before the search for WMDs and Osama bin Laden. See what we were laughing at back then, who was in the news and who had yet to enter rehab -- which NFL stars had yet to do time in the Gray Bar Hotel.
