random deafsports thoughts

How often is it that a friendly athletic contest between
a deaf team and a hearing team would be the spark that
led to the establishment of a professional team?

It happened to Doncaster Rovers, a British professional
soccer team that plays in League One (two notches below
the top Premier Level – equivalent to class AA in baseball).

The story is this – copied off wikipedia:

The club was formed in 1879 by Albert Jenkins, a fitter at Doncaster’s
Great Northern Railway works. He gathered together some friends to play a
match against the Yorkshire Institute for the Deaf and Dumb in September
1879. Jenkins side took a 4-0 lead but the game ended as a 4-4 draw. On
walking back from the game, the team took a rest at the Hall Cross pub, and
had a discussion in which they decided to play more and called themselves
Doncaster Rovers.

note:
Yorkshire Institute for the Deaf and Dumb is now Doncaster School
for the Deaf.
