  1. Who is the person that: * was co-NBA Rookie of the Year in 1970-1971 along with Dave Cowens? * is the only eligible NBA player ever to average over 21 points-per-game for his career, and not be in the Hall of Fame? * is generally credited as the first player, certainly the first major player, to switch from Converse to Nike shoes? Think hard before you mouse over the answer ... Geoff Petrie

    Baseball Trivia

    Good luck answering this one ... In what year did we have two batting Triple Crown winners? It's not a trick question. Mouse your cursor over this for a hint (it's an amazing hint, but I still don't think anyone will get the answer): Same City!
  3. Full disclaimer Scott is a great friend. I was there the first day he opened and have lent a hand as well as from time to time over the years. Helped hang some TVs, bar backed when he was swamped, worked the fryer, been on runs to Restaurant Depot, etc. All of that being said, Scott is a great guy (I knew him back when we were kickin it at Syracuse University) and he runs a heck of a sports bar/pub. I have always been a fan of his food and thought that his wings are the best in town (even though I am highly biased). It warms my heart that Tim Carman gave him such a nice review today in the Washington Post. Scott has pumped blood sweat, and tears into Ventnor for almost 10 years. Over the almost 10 years he has worked more hours than most in a lifetime. I know of him taking just one week off since opening. All of his hard work really shows in how he runs his operation. If you have never visited, I suggest you stop by. Scott will most likely be there, and he is always willing to chat you up if you are in the mood. Ventnor Sports Cafe

    Football Trivia

    Riddle me this: A hypothetical NFL game had no field goals by either team, and only one touchdown scored by either team. The team that scored the touchdown failed on the extra point (a kick, not a two-point conversion), but won 7-0. How? Answer (mouse over): The kick was blocked, an opposing player recovered it, and was tackled in the end-zone for a one-point safety.
  5. Hey kids! Here is ze shal-onge for you from ze grreatess sorfsmon in all of fronnse! 1. Who wrote the theme to Perry Mason (1958-1967)? 2. What was Frederic March’s last screen appearance? 3. What does that have in common with Robert Ryan? 4. What is today’s (6-13) Saints day? 5. Can you name the murderer of Christopher Marlowe? 6. The Roosevelts: What were the names of the 2 branches, and can you elaborate? 6. What was the Great Renaming? 7. What bridge was originally planned to carry a Metro line under the carriage way between which 2 stations? There! I’ve made these as hard as possible w/ nothing deliberately misleading. No Googling. Whoever submits the most rigorous answers gets undying respect.
  6. I asked this awhile back on Twitter, and nobody bit, so I'll give it a go here: I know for a fact - from musical knowledge alone - that the year after Mozart died was a leap year. How do I know this? Hint: This answer is no more impressive than being able to recite the states bordering the Mississippi River. The winner gets an autographed picture of Jay Silverheels. BTW (and this belongs in the Science Forum) - there's an easier way than piecing together the two nuggets of musical history I'm in possession of: Leap Years occur when, and only when: The year can be evenly divided by 4; If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is NOT a leap year, unless; The year is also evenly divisible by 400. Then it is a leap year. The reason for the second two rules is because a leap year isn't exactly 4 years, just as Pi is not exactly 3.14, and it needs an adjustment every 133 years or so. I suspect there's also a fourth rule that makes an even less-frequent adjustment - perhaps something like "Every 25,000 years, ignore rule two" - this is basically a way to approximate an irrational number using rational numbers - like saying Pi is "equal" to 355/113: Note that, unless you have *really* good genetics: For the rest of your life, every single year divisible by 4 will be a leap year.
