Olympic/Canadian Football trivia

Postby cullman » Sat Nov 22, 2003 6:48 pm

Here goes my first stab at a trivia question:

These two athletes qualified for the 1960 US track and field team and eventually were teammates on the same Canadian Football League team. Who were they and what was the CFL team?

Frank Budd and Bo Roberson? But what team? Calgary, Winnipeg?

You're half right and you managed to narrow the teams down too.

I'll change Roberson to Stone Johnson and stick with Budd. The team would just be a guess so I'll pass on it.

Budd's right but Stonewall Johnson nope. Stone's pro football career had a tragic ending but that's another thread unto itself.

Hint: he qualified...doesn't mean he ran in a final event.

Nope. Clue: His position in football was defensive back.
