Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Will you accept other forms of the team name? For example, if we had to name an Edward Norton movie, would you accept "Kingdom of Heaven"?

good question. the answer is no, however. need to have the team name/singular of the team name stand alone in the title.

has to be the actual team name, too.

so Fins, Boys, Pats, etc = no good

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

haha, I didn't mean to make it impossible. but I did mean to make it hard for anyone to breeze through it. (still, if each teammate can get 5 unique answers, then you hit the bonus)

Thanks for the Spinal Tap one, it reminded me I have to watch the movie again soon.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

on my first glance over i only have 1

unbelievably, i can think of two spinal tap "albums" and don't even have the correct one. one of them is the greatest album name of alltime though.

I've got 11 but I'm quickly running out of gas. There are several songs/bands I've never heard of.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

MLS team names NO GOOD.

yes I know there are some stumpers in there, but get what points you can. all the bands/songs were either hits, or got radio play (OK, some of them on college radio). and you've got time to ruminate on them.

plus a good score is not impossible. bairdo just rattled off 14. (you can beat that, right, Legend?)

Yikes, I don't know. I haven't written anything down yet (and have already forgotten at least one of the answers I thought of) but 14 seems strong. There are 4 or 5 I don't know at all and another few I'm going to have to take wild guesses at (maybe literally )

The frickin' 80s metal is going to be my anchor (what, there's no Winger albums that include a team name I guess, chyme?).

I do have a sweet answer that includes two team names. Extra credit?

I can't believe how much stupid stuff I have rattling around in my head after completing that. I think I have 16 if they're all right.

may post pics later tonight. gallo's kind of an oddball (though a handful of people have already correctly named his movie)...winger was the army slut richard gere gets in officer and a gentleman. timothy hutton has a crappy new show on TNT right now, Leverage.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

if promptness of reply counted donga, you'd get lots of credit....but you're incorrect. sorry.

bombs away for either of the other two, though!
