Anyone know how to do the -fu to find out who else besides Hank Aaron played for the two Milwaukee MLB teams?
https://www.baseball-reference.com/friv ... nchise.cgi has this capability. The other two players are Felipe Alou and Phil Roof.

It is called "CTV News Special: A Conversation With Alex Trebek", and here is the description: CTV Chief News Anchor Lisa LaFlamme sits down with longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek to talk about his ...

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

The NBA MVP for the 2018-2019 season is Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. He is only the 2nd European player to win the award (Dirk Nowitzki). Question: during my limited viewing of NBA games (mostly the Raptors' playoff run), he was usually referred to as simply "Giannis". Do you think ...

Re: Tuesday, November 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wish the writers would specify "s/he won the award in 1997 for a movie released in 1996," for example.
