Will's Trivia Challenge - FEBRUARY 2007


WJMorris3

Recommended Posts

LMU won this last time... can he do it again? Or will someone else take the title this time?

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.

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.

Time to start the run.

QUESTION #1

Name any stadium that is the former home of any current NFL team. (Note: Records, to me, start from when they started play in the NFL or AFL.)

A word of advice, for this question, it may help you to be specific, as at least one name has been used by multiple stadiums that would qualify for this question.

Answers for this first question are due on Friday at 7:54 PM ET.

I'm pretty sure he means IA-that division is now "officially" known as the Bowl Subdivision by the NCAA.

Wow, I'm surprised that Larry Bird has not gotten over 100 3-pointers in the playoffs. I don't follow basketball though but have known that he was the best at 3s
