It is an age old bar stool argument.  How would the world's best athletes fair in other sports?  What if LeBron James played football?  What if Michael Jordan played baseball?  (Oh wait, that happened and it did not go well.)

Back in 1953, a group of USC football players joined up with players from UCLA, Stanford and Pepperdine to tour Australia, New Zealand and France playing rugby league against some of the best teams in the world.  Their story is now immortalized in a book called No Helmets Required - The Remarkable Story of the American All-Stars.

The author, Gavin Willacy, will be making an appearance at the USC Bookstore tonight at 6 p.m.
