Description

With the Sunshine State's legendary coaches, influential athletes and historical sporting achievements, it's no wonder Florida fans are so dedicated. Florida Sports Trivia highlights the interesting, fun and quirky facts that every sports fan should know: * In 1964, in his first world championship fight held in Miami Beach, it took a young Cassius Marcellus Clay less than 20 minutes to prove the oddsmakers wrong and shake up the world * The 1972 Miami Dolphins were the only team in pro football history to have gone undefeated en route to winning the Super Bowl * When University of Florida medical researchers developed a sports drink aimed at improving athletic performance, they named it after the school's football team; Gatorade is now the number one sports energy drink * And more.

About the authors

Ed Maloney's profile page

Arpon Basu had said since the age of eight that he would one day make the National Hockey League. Any chance of that happening, came to a crashing halt when, at 15 when he realized he was completely devoid of any talent. He earned a graduate journalism degree from Concordia University and went straight to a sports-writing job with the Canadian Press. The first time he walked into the Montréal Canadiens dressing room as a giddy cub reporter, Basu nearly fell over as it dawned on him that, despite his ineptitude on the ice, he had in fact been telling the truth as a dreamy-eyed eight-year-old.Basu covers sports for the Canadian Press in Montréal and writes a weekly sports column for the Montréal Gazette. He is also editor of Montréal’s South Shore, The St-Lambert Journal.
