Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Yes I read it wrong.

The Dodgers have 6, not 5. Although you would think it would be a lot more since they apparently won the pennant 21 goddamn times.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

fred lynn is correct*..and thanks for the fix flee!

legend, for 6 non points:

name the last TWO world series that went seven games. (name the teams involved)

*personal note that nobody cares about: fred lynn was my favorite player as a young child. I still wear 19 when given the choice for any team uniform. and yes, that means I'm so old right now that I'll probably never play on any teams, even pickup/beer league, again.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

yes, the angels / giants was the tricky part...when I looked it up it surprised me, I forgot that one went 7.

since it's all for non-points anyway, here's your 9 pointer. more a trivia question than a sports trivia question:

Who was the first US president to throw out the first pitch at a World Series game?

No clue. Coolidge seems like a good guess.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

And remembered Angles Giants right after i posted. For some reason, I skipped over 2002 when thinking back.

And I grew up loving Lynn also (and Yaz, Fisk, Rice, Dewey, Remy, etc.) You're not me, are you chyme?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

you guys were both close. flee guessed taft the 27th pres, and legend guessed coolidge the 30th pres.

it was woodrow wilson, the 28th president.

29 hasn't been named.

non sports diamond: Who was the 29th president? hint: he's perhaps best known for the Teapot Dome scandal?

sorry legend, have to preclude you from this one. (you can PM if you like)

and hahah on James Gumm big fat person! I say that to myself all the time, then do clarice starling's trying-to-stay-on-point-but-inject-some-manners reply: she was a large girl, yes.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Warren Harding 29th president.

Taft was first ceremonial first pitch for a president. I guess Wilson was first for a World Series game.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I thought Tom's order at first, but then figured it was too easy and chymechowder was throwing us a curveball and that Krieg actually did throw more TDs than Montana.

I will be your lifeline Tom1975.

Yeah I figured Moon was first and Bledsoe was last. I wasn't sure which way Montana/Kreig was going to go but I luckboxed it.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

correct. JP losman was the 4th.

for 9 pts:

for ACTIVE passers with the most passing yards brett favre is listed as the leader right now (even though he just said he was retiring...again). After favre, who are the NEXT TWO on the list of active passers with the most passing yards?
