Details for Dec 31 Sports Trivia

SPORTS FANS! I Bet You Didn’t Know Brought To You By Bob Roe Back before the passing game took over NFL offenses, it was common for backfields to contain at least three players — a quarterback, a fullback and a halfback — and sometimes offenses even lined up with a “full” backfield that sported three running backs. Only one such full backfield in NFL history put every member in the Hall of Fame, and if you can name it, put yourself in the Hall as well. It was San Francisco’s “Million Dollar Backfield in the early 1950s: QB Y.A. Tittle, and RBs, Joe Perry, Hugh McElhenny and John Henry Johnson. *** Name this NBA player: The only one from the 2000 draft still active entering 2017-18; one of only four players to score at least 50 points in a game for three different teams; the all-time leader in four-pointers; the only three-time recipient of the Sixth Man of the Year Award; never played in the Finals, never been an All-Star, has suited up for eight teams, and began the ‘1718 season in Minnesota playing for his 18th coach in 18 years. The answer: Jamal Crawford. *** Here’s a hockey story for the ages. Jim Montgomery was a senior captain for the University of Maine in 1993 when he scored three goals in one period — a natural hat trick — to lead the Black Bears to the national title and earn Frozen Four MVP honors. In 12017, Jarid Lukosevicius posted a natural hat trick to lead the University of Denver to the national title and earn Frozen Four MVP honors. That hadn’t been done since Montgomery 24 years early. The head coach for Denver and Lukosevicius in ’17? You got it, Jim Montgomery. I bet you didn’t know…that the finest pizza in Siouxland is served at Westside Pizza, Bob Roe’s Point After and the North End Zone! I bet you didn’t know you can watch your favorite college or pro team every night at Bob Roe’s.
