Schalke's 1–0 victory on 20 April 1968, saw the return of Schalke's fortune and the fall of Dortmund. After Dortmund's 0–3 defeat on 4 March 1972, subsequent relegation from the league, the teams did not play each other again until 1975. After Dortmund's return to the Bundesliga, Lothar Huber's goal in the 87th minute on 5 November 1977 gave Dortmund their first victory over Schalke in nearly ten years; the following years belonged to Dortmund, winning eleven matches to Schalke's six, culminating in a 3–2 victory in a German Cup match on 9 December 1988. Schalke's relegation after the 1987–88 season resulted in these teams not playing again until the 1991–92 campaign. Schalke's next Revierderby was remarkable. With Schalke managing only three goals in their first four matches after returning to the Bundesliga, Dortmund seemed assured of continuing their success. On 24 August 1991, in front of over 70,000 fans, former Dortmund midfielder Ingo Anderbrügge scored in the 2nd minute to put Schalke ahead 1–0.

However, Dortmund equalized in the 36th and the 1st half finished with the scored tied 1–1. In the 2nd half, Schalke exploded, stunning Dortmund 5–2. Dortmund's overall success that season eclipsed the defeat, winning the next Revierderby 2–0, finishing the league in second place that year, tied in points, but losing out to VfB Stuttgart on goal differential; the following years saw Schalke holding a slim advantage since 1991, winn

El Cerrito Place

"El Cerrito Place" is a song written by Keith Gattis. Recorded by Charlie Robison, it was recorded by Kenny Chesney on his 2012 album Welcome to the Fishbowl, from which it was released as the third single in September 2012; the song, written by Keith Gattis, was recorded by Gattis in 2002 for his own album Big City Blues. Charlie Robison recorded it on his 2004 album Good Times. Robison's version was released as both a single and music video. Chesney's version includes a backing vocal from Grace Potter, with whom he recorded his 2011 single "You and Tequila"; the song is a mid-tempo. Chesney said of the song that he enjoyed Robison's version for several years, that "There is a certain longing in this song that in a lot of ways I relate to. It's about wanting something that's not there." Robison praised Chesney's version, saying that he "did a good job with it". The song title refers to the El Cerrito Place Apartments at the base of the Hollywood Hills in the Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, where Gattis lived while writing and recording the song.

The song's and apartment's namesake street, off of Franklin Avenue, starts just north of the intersection of La Brea Ave. and Hollywood Blvd., consistent with the lyrics of the song. Chet Flippo, in an article on the song's history for CMT, said that "It's one song that in its different iterations links past and present, it shows the power of a single song." Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song 4 ½ stars out of 5, saying that it "might be the most emotional performance of his career. It’s clear he’s falling back on his own experiences as he tells the story of a man looking for his love and maybe his soul." A less favorable review came from Karlie Justus Marlowe of Engine 145, who said that "The song’s necessary grit and gravel are noticeably missing from his delivery, everything comes off a little too smooth, a touch too neat and tidy." She criticized the "heavy" production, gave the song a "thumbs down". Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Molly Brown House

The Molly Brown House Museum is a house located at 1340 Pennsylvania Street in Denver, United States, the home of American philanthropist and socialite Margaret Brown. Brown was known as "The Unsinkable Molly Brown"; the museum, now located in her former home, presents exhibits interpreting her life and that of Victorian Denver as well as historic preservation. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972; the house was built in the 1880s by architect William A. Lang, incorporating several popular styles of the period, including Queen Anne style architecture in the United States, for the original owners Isaac and Mary Large, they suffered financially from the crash resulting from the repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act in 1893 and were forced to sell the house. It was purchased by James Joseph Brown, Margaret's husband, in 1894 for US$30,000 and the title was transferred to Margaret in 1898 due to J. J.'s deteriorating health. Margaret and the family traveled and so the house was rented out.

In 1902, it was the governor's mansion for the Governor of his family. In 1926, Margaret turned the home into a boarding house under the supervision of her housekeeper; the house was sold after Margaret's death in 1932, for $6,000. The home became a rooming house for men, a Jane Addams Hull House settlement, rooms and apartments for rent; the house continued to deteriorate and by 1970 was set for demolition, but a group of concerned citizens formed Historic Denver, Inc. raising the funds for the house to be restored to its former glory. In restoration, the group used architectural research, paintchip analysis, original photographs taken in 1910 as guides to reconstructing it. Today the home is still owned by Historic Denver, Inc. and public tours are run daily for a fee.
