Here's a sports trivia game to try.

The rules are we start with a sports trivia question (any sport) and the first person to respond with the correct answer then asks the next question. If it goes well we can keep track in the form of standings of whose been answering the most questions correct.
The poster who answers the most questions every week and is on top of the standings could win a prize of some sort. I don't have anything to offer as a prize so maybe that can be a working progress. Bragging rights I guess.


Okay here is the first question:

What two teams played in the worst blowout in Super Bowl history, and what was the final score?

Winner of one Grand Slam tournament, this tennis player died in 1994 due to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. He once uttered the humorous line "Nobody beats (insert name)17 times in a row!" after finally beating Jimmy Connors.

Then I'll withdraw the question.  The only two I knew of were by Godwin Turk of the Broncos and Fred MacNeil of the Vikings.

Substitute question:

This player took the place of an injured star in his team's starting lineup and  scored more than 40 points in each of his first 3 NBA starts.  He promptly went back to the bench after this.

Hint:  His son now plays in the NBA.

Nailed it.  Brewer took over for George "Ice" Gervin who, at the time, got probably 40% of the shots in the Spurs offense.  The Spurs gave Brewer the same number of touches Gervin would have normally gotten and he went nuts for his three game run.

Wow, I wasn't 100% sure on that one, but I think I remembered George Gervin missing the games first. That was hard.

Okay, in the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid, The U.S. hockey team won the gold medal. What team did they defeat to win the gold medal?

OK - it's my turn: in the 1980-81 season Wayne Gretzky broke an NHL record by scoring his 50th goal in only his 39th game. Name the team and the goalie that allowed this historic goal.

Flyers and it was an empty net goal. I know Peeters was the goalie in that game so he was probably on the bench at the time.

Three part question:

A few years ago in Fenway Park, Mike Mussina hurled a perfect game for eight and two thirds innings against the Red Sox before finally surrenduring a hit to a pinch hitter.  Who was that pinch hitter?  For whom was the pinch hitter batting?  Who was the opposing starting pitcher?

Late in the 1986 season, the Mets released this longtime player because he claimed a benching was due to racism. He then looked like a total idiot when his replacement was another black guy.

I am going to proceed under the assumption that you meant the LA Rams 'Fearsome Foursome'.

Nice work, you nailed it. I thought you guys might have a little trouble with that one although I thought a couple West Coast guys would know.
Actually didn't they play one of your Patsies teams in the championship game in the early sixties when they were together?
Any idea what their jersey numbers were? I'll take just Ladds if that's easier.

I think they decimated the Patsies in one of the earliest AFL championship games...that was before my time, but sportswriters still talk about it in these parts.

Here's mine:

The pitcher with the eighth longest consecutive scoreless innings streak in the American League also has the tenth longest scoreless innings streak in the AL; interestingly, he did it with different teams.  Name the player, the teams, and the seasons these feats were accomplished.

Nice job! Fuhr started the first 76 games of the season for the 96-97 Blues. That's insane!

From the San Jose Sharks' website:

His 43 consecutive starts to start the season was the second longest streak in the League since 1989-90. Martin Brodeur (NJ), 44 starts from 1/3/96 - 4/13/96, is the only goalie to have a longer streak in that time.

I just realized that their dates are not even right. The 95-96 season did not start in January, 94-95 did. Assholes.

A mere typo, my boy, a mere typo.

All the same, please take my spot now.  As for the Baseball Almanac reference, ditto my friend.  And I can't figure out if it's baseball-reference or baseballcube you use too.  Perhaps both.

Correct. The other 2 are Glenn Healy and Dennis Vial. The 93 Expansion Draft had 2 different phases. Anaheim and Florida picked first, then Tampa and Ottawa could pick guys from Anaheim and Florida. This allowed players to get picked more than once.

I had to google the date on this. Was the date January 23, 1944?

I attribute this game to the fact all The good Rangers players were over serving their country in WWII.;)

Yeah you got it. I screwed up when I asked the second question though as I only wanted his record at Minnesota, which was 50-2, my bad.

He defeated Hand 3-2, I think:D. I don't know for sure myself and didn't check that before I asked the question.:shock:

Anyway LAF is next.

I get the feeling that this is a trick question so I'm going to say Calvin Coolidge at the 1924 and 1925 World Series.

No, it's got to be somebody who was a starting pitcher for the AL team that made the WS one year, and the next year was the starting pitcher for the NL team that made the WS.  (since World Series used to alternate home field advantages).  It's too much research for me, though.

Just a note before I post the current standings. All questions and answers after DFG34's question below until DFG34 question of:"Who hit the first home run in Oakland A's history?" were disqualified after BigJ gave an incorrect answer and went ahead and asked the next question before DFG34 could respond with a "no" answer.

The standings will be in my next post.

I didn't count one as I mentioned in an earlier post due to BigJ answering a question(which was wrong)and then asking a question before finding out if he got the question right(which he didn't).
So basically no one should ask a question until they get clearance that it is the correct answer that the person asking is looking for.

Thanks for the clarification...I wasn't sure if "Munsopn" was some obscure utility infielder in the Turkish Baseball Association or something.

Dang.  I have watched maybe 30 minutes total of golf in the last couple of years, but during those 30 minutes I heard the announcers mention this story (it must be a bfd in the golf universe) and heard them blame it on sombody named Tom Aaron (sp?)

It was Tommy Aaron. Funny part is that Aaron actually gave de Viczenzo a 1-stroke higher score than he actually had. He didn't actually lower the score.

Quick question...can you tell me where the source of your info was.  I looked at baseball-reference.com for Spahn before the answer was given and came up with, at best, 180 (since Spahn didn't turn 35 until April 23, 1956, I gave him the most amount of wins possible).  Still not 187 though.  Am I missing something?

Wayne Gretzky and I think it's Wilf Paiement.

His name was Taro Tsujimoto. Punch Imlach drafted him in 1974 as a joke. His name in Japanese means Sabre. I've heard that he pulled the name out of the Buffalo phonebook, but I don't know if that's ever been confirmed or not.

Correct.

Imlach drafted him to pull a fast one on the NHL. The NHL conducted the '74 Draft through a complicated secret process so that the WHA would not know what was going on. Because of this process, the draft was taking forever, and Imlach was pissed off. Some people actually thought the Sabres had found some diamond in the rough.

 Gary "Suitcase" Smith may have only played five games for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but this one will be remembered for awhile. Smith claims that he made his mad dash into history because he figured that he'd be sent back to the minor leagues anyhow. The "Gary Smith rule" is section (i) of Rule 31.

Lookit the big brain on JB5!  I wasn't even thinking of the Agannis or Bird statues--in fact, I didn't even know they existed--but some research proved they do in fact exist.  (The best part is, Agannis has a much more famous statue outside of the aptly named Agannis Field; you chose the more obscure likeness.)

For the record, the other statue I had in mind was the Ted Williams statue outside of Fenway Park.  You took the more difficult route, though.  As far as I'm concerned, you get the full two points.

Johnny Bench is correct. He hit 72% of his homers in 1973 on the road after leading the National League with 40 in 1972.

I'm pretty sure I am right, as I checked this one just now on Hockeydb, so I'll go ahead.

OK hopefully this one takes a bit of research - name the fringe NHL defenseman who was part of one of the NHL's biggest trades ever and proclaimed himself  " the most famous 5th wheel in history ".

You got it. He is also the only player to pinch hit for Williams & Yaz.
Played for the 49's in the NFL & worked for the Denver Broncos
& was credited for putting together the "Orange Crush" defense.
I was expecting Dog Face to get it. Well done, JB.

BTW, on his 25th birthday, he pinch hit for Maris & hit his first ML home run.
When Williams hit his last home run, he was replaced in left by you-know-who.

I surrender on most every hockey question, but I'd like ot know the answer to this one.



Here's one, not meaning to be rude:  Who did the Lakers trade away for the draft picks which became Magic Johnson and James Worthy, respectively?  The answer is two different guys.

Gail Goodrich for Magic, sort of.  IIRC he left as a restricted free agent, if that's what it was called back then.  New Orleans had to give compensation to LA.  It was a handful of future draft picks, and one turned out to me Magic.

Don't know about Worthy.

I think Stormin' Normin was traded for Byron Scott (or the draft pick that became him).

Goodrich to the Jazz for the draft pick which became Magic was correct.

The Laker gave up useless forward Don Ford to the Ted Stepien owned Cavaliers for a draft pick which which ended up being the no. 2 overall and which became James Worthy. Don Ford was notable only because during a 4 game loss to the Trailblazers in the 1977 playoffs Maurice Lucas outrebounded him something like 62 -1 for the series.

Full credit to Sin.  Batter up.

The 4 times were 1907, 1920, 1923, and 1924. All were moved due to poor ice conditions with the exception of 1923. In 1923, Ottawa played Vancouver for the right to play Edmonton in the finals. Ottawa won and rather than take weeks to travel back to Ottawa, they had the games in Vancouver instead.

Do I get a bonus for stumping everyone. :-P
