The Soviet Anthem Misheard

This is brilliant:

The Hymn of the Soviet Union was the national anthem of the USSR from 1944 through 1991 (replacing the Internationale).  The melody remains the anthem of the Russian Federation today, although the lyrics have been changed.  (Indeed, the lyrics of the Soviet version were changed from the 1944 original as the past was revised.)

Just for fun, here is a stirring rendition of the hymn as misheard by an English speaker, illustrated by the images summoned.

TOTD 2018-6-14: Skyhook?

At one time the skyhook from Kareem Abdul Jabbar was a big part of basketball. What happened?

For the others, there is the skyhook the CIA, USAF, and USN used. What happened to that?
