VIDEO: Top 5 sports stories of 2019

With 2019 winding down, Mike and JJ reveal their Top 5 sports stories of the year. It’s an exceptional list, including a classic rivalry renewed, the sublime talent of Rachel Glenn and perhaps the best team in the history of Cal State Long Beach.

We will admit, the list is a little confusing in that it doesn’t seem to contain an obvious top story: the performance of a Long Beach Post foursome in a charity golf tournament at Big Rec; a performance many have called, “the least you can do” and “can we just quit after nine holes?”
