Many of golf’s greatest stories are told when absolutely hammered. That’s why the 19th hole exists. It’s also why Comedy Central’s “Drunk History” is a perfect fit for the sport.
“Drunk History” is a hilarious program which uses A-list actors to tell historically important stories, as shared by people who are drunk. In the Aug. 26 sports-themed episode, the story of Babe Didrickson Zaharias is told. “Bones” actress Emily Deschanel plays Zaharias, a multi-sport athlete, two-time Olympic gold medalist, one of the greatest golfers of all time and one of the founders of the LPGA.
Zaharias was featured with track star Jim Thorpe and former MLB pitcher Jim Abbott.
