Indiana: A Rich Sports History

LARRY SCHREIBERContributor IFebruary 16, 2008

I love sports from my home state of Indiana. I attended high school and college (Indiana University) there.

I was there when "The Big Red" went to the Rose Bowl and lost 14-3 to USC and O.J. Simpson.

IU's starting QB was hurt on the first series of the game forced a QB who had not played one minute the entire season into action.


I also saw Wayne Gretzky play his first pro hockey game with the Indianapolis Rangers, along with the birth of the ABA with Roger Brown, Bob Netolecky, Mel Daniels, and Freddie Lewis.

I witnessed A.J. Foyt win his four Indianapolis 500s, along with many more unforgettable moments.

The sports history is rich there.

Everyone God bless and take care.
