Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

NFL Receivers

Q4. Eleven WRs have over 13,000 receiving yards. List them.

2 pts for each one you name. And a 1 pt bonus for naming the last team they last played (a game) for.

Send me PMs by Monday 10am EST.

And this one's a triple.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Friday night bonuses (I imagine TN's spidey-sense started to tingle even as I typed that.)

One team saw its players win the AL Rookie of the Year three years in a row. For 3 pts, name the players.

I'll tell you it's not the Royals. But they've had their share of Rookies of the Year. Name the last three Royals to earn the honor. 3pts.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I like that you're standing by your googling charge.

Incorrect on #2.

if number 1 proves too hard, I'll name the team and DK you can try for it.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I accidentally repeated the word "last" in Q4. Just in case anyone's unclear: I"m looking for the team they most recently played for.

Angel Berroa, Carlos Beltran, George Brett?

Also I did well on the receivers question but the ones I missed are tilting me hard because I should have known them. Sigh.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

NEW LIVE SUBGAME: SCHWAB RUSSIAN ROULETTE.

Takes anywhere from 2-4 players.

(This is basically what the first round of the Schwab show was.)

I'll name a sport. We get our players. I name the specific category and say how many entries there are.

Our combatants then post in order one name at a time. Last man with a correct post wins the points equal to the number of entries correctly named by everyone.

First Roulette Sport: Baseball.

Do I have any takers?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

that's one from column A and one from column D. really need a B or C in there to do Roulette, to make the potential point swing fair. (the next thunderdome still has to be B vs. C, too.)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

TN has the Royals rookies right.

and MSU has just taken a seat at the now viable russian roulette table. we'll give it a few more minutes to see if anyone from Team C wants to make it a family pot.

a request, once we get into the actual roulette: hit the refresh button. one key to the game is to keep the posts moving. when it's your turn you have to answer (like on the show.)

also whether we have 3 or 4 players, at the end of each 3 or 4man round, I'll post and say if anybody is out.

last game-show host request: when we start playing, please no posts from non players.
