Description

Ohio Sports Trivia lets you in on the little secrets every fan should know about the peculiar, unpredictable and sometimes unbelievable stories in Buckeye State sports: * LeBron James went from being Ohio's golden boy to public enemy number one when he signed with thTe Miami Heat in 2010. * Denton ''Cy'' Young, born in the tiny farming community of Gilmore, became the greatest pitcher of all time. * Columbus native James ''Buster'' Douglas shocked the world when he K.O.-ed Iron Mike Tyson in 1990 at a bout in Tokyo, Japan. * The Reds' Johnny Vander Meer is the only pitcher in Major League Baseball history to throw back-to-back no-hitters. * George Steinbrenner almost got the Cleveland Pipers into the NBA in the early 1960s, long before he bought the New York Yankees. * Bowling Green State University contributed two players to the ''Miracle on Ice'' men's hockey team that won the gold medal at the 1980 Winter Olympics. * And so much more.

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.
