Will's Trivia Challenge -- DECEMBER 2006


WJMorris3

Recommended Posts

Well, time to resolve this little problem. It seems there's a slight clamoring to bring the game back, so I'll be happy to oblige. Let's refresh the rules for those who don't remember how to play.

We're going to run through 15 sports questions. Every question will have at least five valid answers. Your job is to PM me with one valid answer. (Only one answer given per question per person, please.) If you give a valid answer, and nobody has given that valid answer ahead of you, you score one to three points (depending on question level), plus a bonus point for the first valid answer I receive.

The trick, of course, is that you don't know which answers have already been given. Beware, as if you give an answer that was already given, or you give an invalid answer, you score zero points for the question.

Each question will last for 24 hours, with the deadline being 24 hours from the timestamp of each question post. Only answers timestamped before the deadline will be eligible to score points. Most points after 15 questions wins.

So let's get this ball rolling then...

QUESTION #1

78 different national teams have qualified for a FIFA World Cup Final. Name any one of them.

By the way, all questions will be asked in this thread. You may ask questions about my questions in this thread, but no guarantees that I will answer them. Also, it is suggested not to post answers in this thread. While I will accept answers that appear in this thread, it makes it a lot easier for other people to know which answers have already been guessed.

Deadline is Saturday at 4:53 PM ET.

Sorry, JP, but I can't take 'Bears'. Cal's nickname officially is the Golden Bears, as opposed to a team like Missouri State, who are the Bears. Scores look like this.

No question today?

I think he's doing the same thing as he did last time, he doesn't necessarily post a question each day, sometimes he waits a couple of days to ask another. Remember though, if you count when he posted it, then technically he didn't ask one yesterday and asked one today already.

QUESTION #5

Name any of the 40 head coaches who have coached a Stanley Cup-winning team since the Cup was annually awarded to the NHL's champion (the 1926-27 season is the first year of this agreement).

Who knew Ricky Proehl would be the most popular answer??? :blink:

Well think about it, the last player to be involved in any kind of action with the Colts was Ricky Proehl. So it was probably the first thing that came to your and several other people's minds. That and the fact the very first thing that came to your mind was probably Porous Run D, which isn't the name used by any of the players on the team. On the other hand its a vividly descriptive adjective for about half of the team.

Moral of the story: If they played in Tecmo Super Bowl, avoid choosing them.

Will did you get my last two PM's? I thought I sent them. If you didn't get them, then I probably messed up somewhere along the line of sending the PM.

-E.A.R.

I always post what I have received, so long as they are before the deadline.
