Btw, how did you find a picture of the Schwab where he's not wearing a jersey? A polo just looks wrong.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

we just need one more. (whither Legend? JJP?)

speaking of "one more", here's a bonus question:

Which product had a commercial that contained the line: "All we need is one pin, Rodney!" ?

not terry tate. and one clarification: I'm not referring to last night's superbowl commercials...this is a "classic" commercial.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

JJP, that's brutal. sorry to hear that....also I'll hit you up to be a sub in case anyone goes MIA during the game.

On to the game:

For the next question, everyone will submit their answers to me via PM. The four people going head to head (to head to head) are: Steroid, Dudd, SuperBob and Sarcastic. Their points will count double.

The person in the head to head slot who did the best on the previous question will select the category. That's Steroid, so please select one of the following:

World Series rosters

NBA MVPs


notes: you are allowed to communicate with teammates, either in the thread or outside. You can ask your teammates what category they prefer. BUT YOU CANNOT share potential answers with each other.

also, I dont want to hold things up too long, so if the person doesn't pick a category within an hour, I'll just randomly pick one.

Steroid you're on the clock.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

OK first category is NBA.

Michael Jordan won the SEASON MVP back to back in 90-91 and 91-92. Since then, the award's been given 16 times to 12 people.

Name the 12 players who've won it since 91-92 (2pts each). And for the one point bonus, name the NCAA college each attended, if applicable (1 pt each)

Steroid , Dudd, Superbob, and Sarcastic's points count double on this question.

Send me a PM with your answers by Tuesday, 10AM EST

No research, no kibbitzing, etc.

One final reminder: this is a team game, and it'll probably be close throughout. So even if you only know a couple answers for a given question, make sure you submit. Every point counts.
