I thought it would be interesting to make a collaborative sports timeline that takes place in the same universe as my American Magic TL. The only references to the sports world in that TL are the existence of the MLB Cardinals and ABA Spirits in St Louis, as well as the NFL Cardinals moving there in 1960. Other than that, the sports world is still pretty much a blank canvas in the American Magic universe. The POD is the early 1950's, the same timeframe which American Magic begins... Late 1950 (POD): Los Angeles Rams beat the Cleveland Browns 27-24 for the NFL title. Summer 1951: Rochester Royals win the NBA Championship in a stunning upset over the Minneapolis Lakers. Fall 1951: Injuries during the World Series derail the New York Yankees' quest to win one last ring for the Yankee Clipper. Instead, Bobby Thompson, Monte Irvin and the "Say Hey Kid" were the heroes for the longshot NY Giants, who in seven games, win their first World Series pennant in 18 years. Christmastime 1951: Cleveland Browns avenge the previous year's loss by beating the Rams in the grudge match 35-17. 1952: - Pacific Coast League given Open status by MLB. - St Louis Cardinals sold to Anheuser-Busch. This thread is now open to all collaborators!
