Radio's Daily Sports Quiz Nick LaCapria's life of Sports Trivia Questions!
George Wilson was the very first Head Coach in the history of the Miami Dolphins! The Great Don Shula succeeded him and lead the Dolphins to back to back Super Bowl Titles including an undefeated season in the 1971 - 1972 NFL Season!
The Great Henry Aaron (Hank) was the very first Major League player to earn 200,000 dollars a season. In an era when Aaron was chasing Babe Ruth's long standing all time career Home Run Total of 714 he was rewarded well. By the end of the decade MLB saw it's first player recieve $500,000 per season (Mike Schmidt-Philadelphia Phillies) and not to many years after that Nolan Ryan became the first Major League Baseball player to earn One Million Dollars per season as salaries began to go thru the roof!
The Chicago Cardinals were the VERY FIRST organized NFL Team of all time. When the NFL began in 1920 things were a lot different than they would become in the NFL. Back in 1920 they had NO Super Bowl, they had NO night games, they had NO televised games. When the Cardinals won their first Championship they were stripped of the title because they did not pay the league dues of one dollar (they could not afford it). Wow! Have times changed! Cardinals would eventually move to St. Louis and today they play in Arizona.
WOW! Get ready for the answer to this one! Most Points in the 1980's the 5 VERY OBVIOUS guesses that I hear all of the time are Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul Jabaar and even Patrick Ewing. However, it is none of the above, do you give up? When I am performing the TravelingTriviaSportsShow I can't believe how many incorrect guesses I hear. So, I finally give the clue to the live audience that leads to the answer. That clue is this player was not Spanish. Like clock work someone yells out English and someone else yells out Alex English and we have two winners! You just don't think of Alex English, why? Perhaps because the Lakers, Celtics, Jordan, etc. is what you think of in the 80;s Decade. However, Alex English did lead the Denver Nuggets. to 9 NBA Plauoff appearances in the 1980s. He lead that explosive high scoring offense and was actually the leading scorer for the Nuggets in 55% of the games that he played in for Denver. This great offensive team just could not play any defense, which is why they never won it all. Alex English racked up an amazing 22,395 Points during the 1980's Decade and when he retired from the NBA he was the 7th leading scorer of all time! Hard to believe that a 1976 graduate of the University of South Carolina who was selected in the 2nd round of the 1976 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks as the 23rd overall pick would outscore the Magics, Birds, Sampsons, Jabaars, Jordans,etc. However, it's a fact Alex English the all time leading scorer in the NBA in the 1980's!
Baltimore's first team in Baseball history was the Highlanders . They became the New York Yankees.. They have been the NY YANKEES for a long time now. Why not? After recording so many world titles and putting the legends on the field that they have, their would be no reason to ever think about moving again. However, many people don't know that the Yankees started out as the Baltimore Highlanders. Now you know this great piece of Sports Trivia too.
Former NBA player and Coach Pat Riley played Basketball and Football in College and was a first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys and decided to play basketball for the San Diego Rockets who also drafted him. Riley would go on to play for the Los Angeles Lakers where he would win an NBA Title in the 1971-1972 season. After Riley's playing days he came back to Los Angeles and was the teams color commentator on TV and Radio alongside legendary Play by Play voice Chick Hearn until the Lakers needed an Assistant Coach and gave Riley a shot. When Laker Super star Magic Johnson went to team owner Dr. Jerry Buss and voiced concerns about Head Coach Paul Westhead, he was fired and Pat Riley was made the Head coach leading them to multiple NBA Tiltes. He went on to turn around both the New York Knicks and Miami Heat as head coach also. He also won an NBA Title as an executive with the Miami Heat. Riley became the first person in any sport to win a championship as a Player, Assistant Coach, Head Coach, and Executive. He also made an excellent color commentator too. Explaining the strategy and the game to listeners of Laker Basketball on KLAC 570 AM Radio and KHJ (later KCAL) Television in the Los Angeles area back in the day. Pat Riley drafted by the Dallas Cowboyys, but making the choice to play Basketball instead. Pat Riley would have played for Dallas Cowboy legendary Hall of Fame Coach Tom Landry, but he winded up playing for another Hall of Famer -Bill Sharman in the NBA and went on to make the NBA Hall of fame himself!
On Thursday September 17th what major league rookie scored a run and hit an RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks becoming the first rookie to do this in 9 consecutive games since the RBI was kept in 1920.
Here's a huge hint for what team this player plays for. He has had 2 teammates do something historic within the past 2 weeks catching and passing the great Willie Mays with both achievements. One of his teammates hit his 300th career Home Run in less at bats than Willie Mays who had held that record. While the other teammate hit career home run # 660 equaling the Great Willie Mays and moving into a 5th place tie with him on the all time MLB List!
