Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

OK looks like there's no point in waiting for Team C.

we've got TN/Steroid from A. MSU/Dudd from B. and Manu from D.

TN and MSU claimed a spot first so theyre in if they want. but you can quickly decide with your teammate who you want to play.

let me know for sure and we'll start.

I was out of town, but that's okay, I actually would have sub-performed in a couple of these (though I would have rocked the house in some others). I'll just play Horshack from here on out.

Your effort on this game is the absolute pinnacle of mod jobs btw, chyme.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

OK here we go. the random order is CADB. so comp13, steroid, manu, MSU.

the category is "Names of the MLB baseball parks that were played in in 2008."

don't start yet. you can think for a minute while I make one last point.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I'm not going to be a nit about things like field/park/stadium. also any prepositional phrase at the end of the name isn't important.

But if you get key word wrong or leave one out, it's going to be a miss.

example: say the Pats played at "Gilette Field at Foxborogh"

Gillete, Gillette Park, Gillette Stadium would all be good.

Foxborogh Field would be wrong.

Get it?

Also my rulings will be final.

OK so were gonna go comp, steroid, manu, msu in that order. after MSU posts, I'll jum[p in.

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.
For the first Diamond, it's the Oakland Athletics players:
1986 Jose Canseco
1987 Mark McGwire
1988 Walt Weiss
