Jordan won twice after his first comeback, Barkley won the year before MJ's first retirement.

Didn't the Seattle Seahawks play their first year in the NFC before switching to the AFC?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

speaking of seattle seahawks, they've only had 6 head coaches in their history.

for bonus point, name 4 of them. (make one post with 4 coaches names)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I guess hockey isn't a sport - not that I know it well.

Just a suggestion for the next general question.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

The bears are probably the most irrelevant franchise on my NFL radar... I'm just glad I got what I got.

I'm better at NCAA football/basketball questions

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

fair enough - but giving away a few points for random hockey trivia isn't exactly making it a focus.

Good job running this so far though.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

i'm surprised i came up with louisiana tech for malone. when i put it i figured it was 10% at best to be correct. (must be one of those that my brain knew even though i didn't)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

ok I'm going to throw the puckheads a bone, eh?

DBNIC (Diamond Bonus Night in Canada):

Chris Chelios is tops for games played by an active player (1626). Who is second on the list?


And here's a baseball bonus:

Who was the last Cub, other than Sammy Sosa, to lead the NL in home runs for a season?

lets get these answered and move on to THUNDERDOME
