B. In what other sport besides football is Jim Brown a member of the Hall of Fame?

Another non-answer answer. Its a good thing you would never be a witness in my courtroom...you could end up in jail. It is Lacrosse...assuming that is your answer.

Yes.

 

Makes you wonder if Mik would have broken the record that year if batting positions had been reversed.

Here is a set of Trivia that is basically all over the place. See what you can do:

 

Pretty lame ass effort on this....which I thought was one of the more fun quizzes that I put together. But I can't fuck around as I am leaving town.

Here are the answers:

 

1. Which team in the 4 "Major" sports has gone the longest without winning a title?

The Chicago/St. Louis/Arizona Cardinals. Last title was in 1947 in Chicago. Now that the Cubs have won, they are the longest title drought team in all 4 major sports.

BUT...only 1 year longer than the Cleveland Indians. Who, of course, in their last two World Series appearances went to extra innings in the 7th game...only to lose both times.

 

 

2. Name all the active QBs that have started a Super Bowl game.

Russell Wilson...started for Seahawks

Drew Brees...started for Saints

Ben R.....started for Steelers

Aaron Rodgers...started for Packers

Matt Ryan....started for Falcons

Joe Flacco...started for Ravens

Eli Manning...started for Giants

Tom Brady...started for Patriots

Cam Newton...started for Panthers

Colin Kaepernick...started for the 49ers...is he going to be active?

(and, just to be certain: Rex Grossman IS retired...no?)

 

 

3. Since 2000 what player has produced 2 of the 3 best years in Fantasy points (NFL)?

Ladanian Tomlinson. The other was Judas Priest..errr Priest Holmes. At least according to one source that I looked up.

Maybe you Fantasy Geeks have some other source that says different. So be it.

 

 

4. A. What NFL team has now gone the longest without making a playoff appearance?

The Buffalo Bills...not since 1999

 

B. Which team has gone the longest without winning a playoff game? Hint: not the same as A

The Cincinnati Bengals...not since 1988

 

 

5. A. How many World Series did Babe Ruth win when he was with the Yankees?

In 15 years with the Yankees, they won 4 Championships with the Babe on the team. (they actually won more with Derek Jeter on the team: 5)

 

B. How many World Series did Yogi Berra win when he was with the Yankees?

In 18 years with the Yankees, they won 13 Championships with Yogi on the team. How about that!

 

 

6. A. The year that Roger Maris hit 61 home runs, he did not receive one single intentional walk. Why?

Because Mickey Mantle who hit 54 HRs hit right behind him in the order. As good as Maris was that year, no one was going to give him a free pass to pitch to The Mick.

 

B. Within a certain margin of error...how many intentional walks did Barry Bonds receive the year he hit 73 HRs?

He received 120 intentional walks. Ahhh....the power of Cheese....when it is laced with steroids!

 

 

7. At least 2 and perhaps 3 nations that have in the past hosted an Olympic games (summer or winter) no longer exist. Name these 2-3 countries.

Yugoslavia, who hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.

The Soviet Union who hosted the 1980 Summer Olympics

You might also say West Germany, who hosted the 1972 Summer Olympics...if you consider West Germany a different nation from the now unified Germany.

 

 

8. What is the only team that has neither played in nor hosted a Super Bowl game?

That would be your...and my Cleveland Browns. All but 4 teams have appeared in the game....but Jacksonville Jags, Detroit Lions and Houston Texans have each played host to a Super Bowl.

 

 

9. Bruce...now Caitlyn Jenner was drafted by an NBA team. Name that team.

The Kansas City...now Sacramento Kings drafted Jenner in like 1976 or 1977. Yep. And as far as I know, the WNBA has not drafted him....err her to this point.

 

 

10. Which of the following cities has won the most "major sports" championships: Atlanta, Baltimore, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Green Bay/Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Houston, Kansas City, Minnesota (Minn./St. Paul), Phoenix, Portland, St. Louis, San Antonio, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Washington DC.

 

That would be: Cleveland.

 

In fact, the only cities that have won more major championships than Cleveland are: Boston, New York, Chicago, LA, Philadelphia, Montreal, and Pittsburgh and the Bay Area. Up until Pittsburgh and the Bay Area won titles this summer in hockey and basketball, they were both tied with Cleveland.

 

 

11.A. In what other sport besides basketball is Wilt Chamberlain a member of the Hall of Fame?

Volleyball.

 

B. In what other sport besides football is Jim Brown a member of the Hall of Fame?

Lacrosse

 

 

12. What was Michael Jordan's nickname in High School?

He was named "Magic"......and yes, they called him that after Magic Johnson. It did not stick as he went on to college and the Pros.

 

 

Bonus: One of our favorite movies, the "original Die Hard"....is, technically, actually a sequel to a movie made some time earlier. In fact, the star of that earlier movie had the right of first refusal to play the role of John McClane that Bruce Willis played. But he declined to allow the younger Willis to take the part. What was that movie and who was the actor that had the right to play the role?

 

The movie was called "The Detective" and the actor was: Frank Sinatra.

 

The Detective is a 1968 color neo-noir crime film in Panavision directed by Gordon Douglas, produced by Aaron Rosenberg and starring Frank Sinatra, based on the 1966 novel of the same name by Roderick Thorp.

In 1979 Roderick Thorp wrote a sequel to The Detective called Nothing Lasts Forever, in which Leland is trapped in a Klaxon Oil Corporation skyscraper after it is taken by German terrorists and must rescue his daughter and grandchildren. The novel was adapted into the 1988 20th Century Fox film Die Hard, in which Joe Leland's name was changed to John McClane, the object of his heroism was changed from his daughter to his wife, and Klaxon became the Nakatomi Corporation. Fox was contractually obligated to offer Sinatra the lead role, but he promptly turned it down as he would have been more than 70 years old when filming. The film launched a film franchise that continues into the 2010s.[5]
