Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

here's how people did:

Team A
steroid
truenorth 16
donga
mjw
willie 5

Team B
dudd 2
EMD 12
dkgo
msu
mediaPA

Team C
bairdo 13
fleebrog 4
sixfour
tom1975 11
comp13


Team D
sarcastic
cards 18
zimmer 4
pwnsall 4
manupod 7

I was a little surprised so many people got They Might Be Giants. New Pornographers and Buffalo Tom were the only ones that went unanswered by the field. I knew Pornogrpahers would be really hard. Thought someone would get Buffalo Tom, though.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Our resident expert, Legend, got 17 points.

Enough to beat everyone...except Cardsman.

Team D had the most points (and wins the spirit award for most competitors.) 33, plus the ten point bonus for cards, means they picked up 22 on Team A. Enough to catch them on the Final Showdown....?

Thanks to Legend for jumping in the hot seat and everyone for playing.

Here are revised standings

Team A 971
Team D 866
Team B 725
Team C 705


Team C threatening to come out of the cellar!

Chyme, I'm playing along at home, would you have accepted Bling (Confession of a King) as the Killers as a pro team (LA Kings, ldo).

If it's the parenthetical part of a title or a subtitle of a Killers song, then yes, that woul'dve counted for sure. (I confess to looking it up, though, b/c I'm surprised teh killers would use the word Bling in a title...live and learn)

also jamee, as a nod to those who might be playing at home--even if it's just you--I'll do a fastest finger millionaire right now that's open to everyone. (roster players and home viewers alike.)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

SCHWABBONAIRE:

Rank these MLB teams in order of World Series titles, from LEAST to MOST.

Dodgers
Orioles
Phillies
Red Sox

first one to rank them correctly gets three bonus questions just for them.

open to Team A-D roster players and nonroster players alike.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

legend : for 3 pts that don't go towards anyone's team:

Name one of the two AL players who won both the rookie of the year and the MVP in the same year.
