Confused? Well, it’s likely because this contest took place on a sports game show from that era called “Sports Challenge” and pitted Red Auerbach, Bill Russell and John Havlicek against Ted Williams, Frank Howard and Denny McClain of the Senators. The game went down to the wire, with the Celtics pulling off a win late with the deep and broad sports knowledge going far beyond the sport they made history with as one of sports’ winningest franchises.
