Michael Sergio

Michael Sergio is an actor, most famous for parachuting into Shea Stadium during Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, wearing a sign proclaiming "Let's Go Mets". Immediately arrested, Sergio spent a short time in jail because he would not reveal the name of the pilot who flew him over Queens that evening. Senator Al D'Amato later intervened on his behalf, and Sergio was released.[1][2]

Sergio won a Daytime Emmy for directing the Ringling Bros. 1996 TV Circus Special and was nominated for an Emmy for Creating the Wizard of Oz on Ice.

Sergio also wrote and directed the independent feature Under Hellgate Bridge, featuring The Sopranos regulars Dominic Chianese, Vincent Pastore, and Frank Vincent.

He had a role as "Rick" in the 1983 cult classic slasher film The House on Sorority Row.

1986 World Series

The 1986 World Series was the 83rd edition of Major League Baseball's championship series, and the conclusion of the 1986 Major League Baseball season. A best-of-seven playoff, it pitted the National League (NL) champion New York Mets against the American League (AL) champion Boston Red Sox. The Mets won the Series in the seventh game, after overcoming a deficit of two runs with two outs and no one on base in the bottom of the 10th inning of Game 6. This was a game in which the Red Sox were twice one strike away from victory, and known for the famous error by Boston's first baseman Bill Buckner after their lead had already been blown. Game 6 has been cited in the legend of the "Curse of the Bambino" to explain the major comeback. It was also the first World Series to use the designated hitter only in games played at the American League representative's stadium, a policy which has continued since (prior to this, since 1976, the DH would be used in all parks in the World Series for even-numbered years, but in odd-numbered years, the DH rule would not be in effect).

The House on Sorority Row

The House on Sorority Row (alternately titled House of Evil and Seven Sisters) is a 1983 American slasher film written and directed by Mark Rosman, produced by John G. Clark, and starring Eileen Davidson and Katherine McNeil. Set at a sorority house, the story follows a group of sorority sisters being murdered during a graduation party, after committing a prank gone horribly fatal.

Partly inspired by the 1955 French film Les Diaboliques, first-time writer-director Rosman wrote the screenplay for the film in 1980, then titled Seven Sisters. The film was shot on location in Pikesville, Maryland in the summer months of 1980. In November 1982, it received a limited regional theatrical release before expanding on January 21, 1983, eventually going on to gross $10.6 million. Despite a mixed critical response, The House on Sorority Row has attained a cult following among fans of the genre. A remake, titled Sorority Row, was released in 2009.
