Chess on Ice, as some call it, was invented in Scotland more than 500 years ago.
TULSA - The Tulsa Shock doesn't just have an Olympian.
It has a history-making Olympian. They're calling her "Slambage."
Liz Cambage became the first woman to dunk in Olympic competition with her one-handed slam against Russia in Team Australia's 70-66 win on August 2.
After her run through the Olympics, Cambage will rejoin her Shock teammates, including Ivory Latta.
I met Ivory at the BOK Center for a little game of P-I-G.
And folks, this wasn't even close.
I didn't exactly miss every shot I took, but I also didn't make anything that Ivory couldn't.
This would be a quick rout!
Shots from the top of the key. Shots from behind the backboard. Shots that were bounced off the floor. Ivory simply couldn't miss!
These 2 for the Gold Olympic challenges have not gone well for me!
Here's to wishing Ivory, "Slambage" and the rest of the Tulsa Shock a great second half of the season.

You're out on an icy island, being attacked by hard rubber disks that are frozen before games to make them even harder.
In 2012, Big Al and Cayden McFarland tried their hand at some of the more popular summer game events. Two years later, they're back giving the winter games a go
Tulsan Hans Helmrich has been a sports fan all his life. So you could imagine his excitement when at age 13, he was picked to be a ball-boy for the USA Men's basketball team for the Olympics.
Shots from the top of the key. Shots from behind the backboard. Shots that were bounced off the floor. Ivory Latta of the Tulsa Shock simply couldn't miss!
The 100-meter dash pits the world's eight fastest men together as they race for the title of "World's Fastest Man." That's not something Big Al nor I will be confused with. But it didn't stop us from trying!
The cable ratings for archery were huge and some attribute the sport's rise in popularity to the recent The Hunger Games movie.
The sport of high jump changed forever back in 1968. That's when Dick Fosbury came up with the jump that bears his name - the Fosbury Flop. So, that begs the question, can Big Al and Cayden pull it off?
The backstroke looks like it's a nice leisurely stroke, with the opportunity to possibly catch some rays at the same time. Not quite.
