    On 12/30/20, Becky Hammon, in a Lakers/Spurs NBA game eventually won by Los Angeles, made history. When Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was eected after a rant to a ref about a bad call, Hammon took over for him. That made her the first woman to act as a head coach during a game, not only in the NBA, but in all of male professional American team sports.

    Just as the late Buck O'Neil did with the Cubs in 1962, 29-year-old Bianca Smith will be doing in 2021. O'Neil became the first African-American to coach in MLB annals. Smith will be the first African-American female coach to take a coaching job in pro baseball. She will become a minor league coach in the Red Sox organization, mainly assisting players with their batting skills at the minor league complex in Fort Myers, FL.

    This coming Sunday, Tom Brady will add yet another first to his long career. When he starts for the Bucs against Green Bay, he will become the first QB in NFL annals to start in a Conference Championship game in 3 different decades.
