ESPN 30 FOR 30 SUBJECTS
Spoiler
2: “June 17, 1994” was the night his run from the police upstaged the NBA Finals, the opening of the World Cup, and the New York Rangers' Stanley Cup victory parade. Who is O. J. Simpson?

4: The first episode, “Kings Ransom” covered the trade that sent this hockey legend from the Edmonton Oilers to Los Angeles. Who is Wayne Gretzky?

6: In “Small Potatoes,” New Jersey Generals owner Donald Trump tries to explain what killed this sports league. What is the USFL? (I prefer John Bassett's explanation -- Trump was an egotistical idiot.)

8: Drazen Petrovic and Vlade Divac were “Once Brothers” on this now-defunct nation's basketball team. What is Yugoslavia?

10: “The Band That Wouldn't Die” tells the story of fans of this franchise, performing in memory of the team that moved in the middle of the night in 1984. What are the Baltimore Colts? (There's a reason I call every fantasy football team I operate the Baltimore Colts Marching Band -- talk about never quitting! And, although the film didn't go into it, this was the SECOND time the band survived the lack of a team -- the first was from 1952 to 1955.)
MAKING THINGS
Spoiler
3: A nerdy weaver can make these threads cross at right angles to the woof faster than the speed of light. What is warp?

6: “Nail down” this type of loose stitch, which is also a sailing term for a change of direction. What is tack?

9: Cloisonne is a style of decoration in which this type of vitreous coating with a dental-sounding name is applied to a piece of metal. What is enamel?

12: The name of this art of tying knots in patterns comes from an Arabic word for an embroidered veil. What is macrame?

15: This rectangular groove cut made by woodworkers shares its name with the part of a pedestal of a column above the base. What is CLAM grooving?
Life IS pain, Princess. Anyone telling you differently is selling something.
