Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Q5. There are 12 pitchers who've appeared in over 750 games in their career and who played in 2008.

2 pts for each you name, 1 pt bonus for naming his most recent team.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

they can't all be "name the last 11 nba mvp's," right?

also, this is triple points for the guys in the 5-hole.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

It's a perfectly fine and fair question; I just haven't followed baseball that much in the last ten years. Some of my guesses will probably be lol-tastic.

eah chyme, can you subtract the total combined douchiness indices of that 85 Bears roster and coaching staff? Or is that number even calculable?

(I love righteousness that's based purely on geography and uniform colors )

Man I bombed this one, only think I got five. Bad beat on some of them, how can you be a closer for 13 years and not even come close?

Hey guys, I didn't come here looking for trouble. I just came to do The Super Bowl Shuffle.

I have the excuse that I was out of the country last year, so following baseball wasn't a top priority. I don't have a clue if the guys I'm going to throw out were active or not.

Was this number random, or chosen because it is the amount of points the Bears put up in Superbowl XX?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

yes it was b/c of the points..I was going to make it worth a diamond point to guess why I picked 46.

I remember being somewhat glad when SF whacked denver to the tune of 55-10 b/c the Pats were no longer on the business end of the worst super bowl blowout.

A record which still stands thanks to Leon Lett and Don Bebe.

haha, excellent point. I'd like to rag on the Superbowl Shuffle, but we had the even more humiliating, "New England, The Patriots, and We" video. (my balls hurt with embarrassment just thinking about it.)
