  • Trivia Question: Hoops-related

    Over on the Current Events side of the board, somebody noted that Bob Hayes is the only guy with an Olympic gold and a Super Bowl ring.

    I can only think of one guy with an Olympic gold and an NBA title. Who is he? (two NBA titles, to be exact)

    Presuming that you mean T&F gold and are ignoring several people who won basketball golds, I'm guessing Buddy Davis. I don't recall ever hearing this question. New one for you?

        Don't know if he played for the Celtics, but his two championships came w/ Philly and St. Louis. (And for those who don't know who BD was, he was the '52 Olympic high jump champ)

          At one time Chuck Essegian was the only person who had played in both the Rose Bowl and the World Series.

            On the Super Bowl Olympic Medal Track- Who is the only athlete to win an Olympic medal and a Super Bowl ring in the same Season?

              Is this a trick question? I notice you say same "season," not same year. So if the guy won an Oly medal in 1960, you'd count it if the Super Bowl win was 1960-61? (Yes, I know there was no Super Bowl then; just using a hypothetical that doesn't give any further clue)

                  I think the trivia answer is Willie Gault-LA Games, '85 Bears (I am too lazy to go to check it out).

                    Common misconception that Gault ran in LA; he didn't. He was on the WR relay at Helsinki in '83, but didn't compete in the '84 Trials.

                    Bears' SB win was in '86.

                          Carter is correct! Silver behind Andrei in '84 Olympics and Super Bowl in '85 (1984 football season)

                            Hold on there, I thought Jackie Jensen held that claim to fame.
