Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

manu snags 2 pts for team D. aaron is second and rice sixth all time.

I'll leave it open. another 2 pts for naming 2 of the remaining 6 unnamed players.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

ahh, unfortunate timing. I thought my post was going under willie's guess. but steroid was too fast. which would've then made it unfair for willie. so we'll close the GIDP bonus.

top 8 are: ripken, aaron, yazstermski, winfield, murray, rice, franco, baines.

Last edited by chymechowder; 02-02-2009 at 10:05 PM. Reason: added the 8

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

oh yeah. just noticed that. whoops. (but I like where your head is at, team spirit wise.)

OK we'll keep it on baseball for one more bonus. open to everyone:

most career strikeouts among ACTIVE* batters. 4 of the top 5 are lefties. name 3 of them for one

*according to baseball-reference.com tonight.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

ah, actually my wording was a bit unclear:

Four of the top 5 active strikeout leaders bat lefthanded.

Name three of those 4 lefties. (so your answer needs to be 3 lefties)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

New live subgame:

THUNDERDOME!



Thunderdome is just like one-on-one gladiator fights in ancient Rome....if they had sports trivia and Name That Tune in those days, that is.

I'll name a sport. The first two people (have to be on different teams) who want to enter the Thunderdome do so. Then I'll name the category and give you the number of correct answers.

One guy bids on how many he can name. The other guy can either bid higher (any increment higher) or tell the first bidder to whip it out and let's see if it's as big as you say it is....I mean, he can tell the first bidder to make his bid.

If you succeed, you win the points equal to your bid. And the other guy loses points equal to 1/3 of the bid. If you fail, you lose 1/3 and the other guy gets the bid points.

Inaugural Thunderdome sport: Football.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

bidding rule clarification: you keep bidding back and forth until someone says DO IT.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

is it: how many you can name before you get a wrong answer?
