Obama Hails The ‘Miami Heats’
When I was a much younger man, naming all the professional teams whose name did not end in "S" was a manageable trivia question. Both "Sox" and the Jazz were on the short list, and I forget the rest.
Now, who knows? But I wonder if the Heat-Thunder final was the first No-S championship in a major professional sport?
GOOD POINT: myiq2xu asks "Are you sure the press corpse heard him correctly?"
SPOILER ALERT: The Red Sox never met the White Sox in the World Series, obviously. In the NBA, the Jazz and the Magic never met in the Finals. In the NHL, the Stanley Cup was contested in int amateur days by various matchips of clubs and universities, but in the NHL the Avalanche haven't met the Lightning. And the NFL Super Bowl list offers nothing.
The Providence Steam Roller won the 1928 NFL Championhip, but they won based on best record.
OK, I think Obama has called out attention to an interesting factoid. Unless soccer fans want to chime in. Or Japanese baseball...
NOT EXACTLY 'MAJOR', BUT... The 1984 Chicago Sting v. the Toronto Blizzard. Trivia fans can guess the sport.
