    rams trivia question

    Name the only rams general manager who also served as both a general manager of a major league baseball team and as a major league umpire. I wonder if any other person has ever served in all three of those capacities (gm in football, baseball and baseball umpire), i would say it is pretty unlikely.

    Answer to be posted tonight, but i strongly suspect that given the plethora of knowledge held by the collective clanram, someone will post the answer in the next ten minutes.

    Re: rams trivia question

    HUbison, you are correct. billy evans, hired in 1941 by dan reeves to be the gm after reeves bought the team. I knew it wouldnt take long for someone to come up with the answer and it doesnt surprise me that the biggest bison of them was the man, but i still think its a pretty good question. My only curiosity is whether the Big Bison has to consult with Granny Bison on the answer or if he got this one on his own.

    Ramming speed to all,

    There is no question truly answered without first consulting Granny.
