On this day in history! (Feb. 12)
« on: February 12, 2017, 17:27:19 CST »
On this day, February 12, in 1892, the first public game of basketball was played in Springfield, Massachusetts. The announcement in the local paper called it "indoor football", probably because the game used a football (American) and two peach baskets at that time.

Just a bit of trivia I thought y'all could tuck away in a file somewhere.

One idea of a game and look what happened! Lots of people are thanking them world wide.
