Women Coaching Men’s Sports, 80s Lakers-Celtics Basketball Rivalry, Championship Ping Pong


Lisa and Brian are back with another episode of The Bandwagon!  This week they talk about the great Lakers-Celtics rivalry of the 1980s, the first female NFL assistant coach, and the World Ping Pong Championships!  And Brian sings a little, but don't let that discourage you from listening.

The game Brian was thinking of during the podcast was actually Game 4 of the 1987 NBA Finals at Boston Garden.  Here are some highlights:

We've got some additional reading, listening, and watching for you on our other topics as well.  Here's the NPR story about Kathryn Smith getting the job with the Buffalo Bills.  We both enjoyed this nice feature on Kat Vosters with the University of Wisconsin basketball team.  And Becky Hammon has hit the ground running as an assistant coach for San Antonio.  Plus, a look at San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich's take on bringing Hammon on to his coaching staff.

Last, but not least, the World Championship of Ping Pong!  Plus, highlights!

Enjoy, and we'll talk to you again in two weeks!
