The Drive: June 16th, 5:25pm – This Day in Sports History

  • 1975 – Milwaukee Bucks traded Kareem Abdul Jabbar to the LA Lakers
  • 1993 – Michael Jordan scores 55 points in an NBA Finals game, becoming the first player to score 50 in the Finals since Jerry West in 199
  • 1938 – Jimmy Fox (Boston Red Sox) sets a Major League record when he was walked 6 times in one game
  • 2008 – US Open Mens Golf, Torrey Pines: Tiger wins his 3rd US Open and 14th Major, beating Rocco Mediate on the 1st hole of sudden-death, following a Monday 18-hole playoff
  • 2015 – 69th NBA Championship: Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers, 4 games to 2

Phil Mickelson hinted that he and Tiger Woods might be setting up a match to be played soon…would Sip tune in for that in these sports-starved times?

-Mickelson hinted at the possibility in a Twitter exchange on Sunday, and said there would be more details soon. The Masters has already been postponed, as well as the U.S. Open, and all sorts of other sporting events…wouldn’t it just make perfect sense for this match to happen to save sports fans?

Jake’s sad he can’t watch the British Open but it’s still his favorite golf tournament

-The British Open started early this morning—yep, earlier than we are even up doing this show—and Jake can’t watch it because of coverage of B1G Media Days, but he’ll tell you why it’s his favorite golf tournament, even ahead of the Masters

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Could Sip beat Charles Barkley in golf?

-The American Century Golf Tournament starts tomorrow, and Barkley is 7500-1 odds to win the event, which is worst odds in the field. Last year, Chuck shot essentially 100-over par over the 3 day stretch—and made double bogey or worse on 85% of the holes…could Sip beat that, or would he be destined for last place?

-We could make it all that much easier if we just get Sip over to Jim Ager….

Jake is considering going to Minneapolis this weekend to watch a PGA Tour event…would Sip even attend an event like that if it was in Omaha or Lincoln?

The 3M Championship is making its debut on the PGA Tour schedule this week, and drawing big crowds—the state has certainly drawn big crowds in the past for big events like the Ryder Cup and U.S. Open….though Jake is excited about it, would Sip ever think about going to a golf event?

Nebraska native Nate Lashley overcomes incredible odds to win on the PGA Tour on Sunday…can he provide something for fans to consistently root for locally?

-What an incredible story; Lashley was the 3rd alternate for the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, yet was informed midday Wednesday that he would be playing, and all he went on to do was lead the tournament wire-to-wire, shooting 25-under par to win by 6 strokes over a field that included players like Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Hideki Matsuyama, Brandt Snedeker, and more

-Lashley’s story is amazingly sad; his parents and his girlfriend died in a plane crash on the way back from an event of his in college; he quit the game and was flipping houses for a while; came back and joined the tour in his mid-30s after lots of mini tours; and now he’s playing in the Masters next year. Wow.
