Two “Lipscombs,” If You Will

April 3, 2019

One game remains the most important in leading a league into incredible popularity, while the other will largely fly under the publicity radar.

It is a tale of two “Lipscombs,” involved in title games played in famed New York City venues, over 60 years apart.

In the first one, the one heralded as “the greatest game,” Eugene “Big Daddy” Lipscomb was an integral player on a Baltimore Colts’ team, that won the 1958 NFL title, with an overtime victory at Yankee Stadium, vs the New York Giants.

Tomorrow night in the “under the radar,” NIT Final game, at Madison Square Garden, Lipscomb University (located in Nashville, Tennessee) will face The University of Texas.
