...competitive art such as sculpture, architecture, music and painting were Olympic events until 1948.

The ABA's NOLA Buc's became the Memphis Pro's....the name "pro's" was used so the old "buc's" jerseys could be reused

Interesting. Why? Both leagues wanted to host one?
Tulane is the University of Louisiana

Here's something some of our younger readers may not know (and some of our old farts may not remember.)

There used to be a preseason game played in Chicago every year (most, anyway) between the defending NFL Champ and a team of recently graduated College All-Stars. They quit in '77 when some NFL Gms and coaches decided not to risk getting their rookies injured.

Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

And that the kingdom in Kansas City included Omaha
And prior to the Kings' annexation of Omaha, they were the Cincinnati Royals of Oscar Robertson fame.

Kansas City likes royalty. They move the Cincy Royals to town, renamed them, but kept the royal theme, the Kings; the baseball team is the Royals. And the football team is the king of the Indians, the Chiefs.

ya know why the Big O played for Cincy.....because back in the day, the NBA was struggling and NBA teams had the right to freeze "regional players"...I think the max was two players per year and had to play college ball with "X" number of miles of the Franchise...Bob Cousy to the Celtics is another example

Thanks. I can remember looking forward to that game even though you knew the pros were going to win. Football season was here.
