Post by Peachbox » Sun Nov 03, 2019 10:02 pm

TD 434 - Another Short Quiz

The following standard rules apply to this TD:

1. Your goal is to achieve the lowest score for all questions; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players also submitting your answer. Your spelling can be off a bit, as long as there’s a relative phonetic match.
2. You may DROP one question and receive zero points for it, and SHEEP one question.
3. Wrong answers count for the SHEEP (most common answer) + 3 points.
4. Letter needed for Q4 and Q5.
5. Quiz is open to JBoard members and nonmembers alike.
6. As always, no cheating. This includes asking for help, googling, or other research.

Edit access means in order to edit the submission form itself. You can fill out the form and submit it without having edit access.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Bugger - I swear I saw Wilson racing once, but apparently that was Coolidge, who only raced for the 2015 season, which would line up with when I went to the game.

After performing so poorly in most games, I just gave up and went to Random.org to randomize the answers I actually knew. Let's see if it works.
Won some of Ben Stein's money, some of Roger Lodge's, some of Chris Harrison's. None of Alex Trebek's.

I think my life is just about complete, now that I've read the phrase "Any flavor of the racing pierogies. . ." Too funny! We attended Pierogifest in Whiting IN recently, and there was a pierogi kickline with paczki and stuffed cabbage also involved.

Thanks for the ASL! It gives us bottom dwellers something to aspire to! I'm at 2/3 sheep, shooting for that 50/50 line!

This ASL is actually inspired by the Mendoza Line. You are a baseball junkie who knows what that is. Not Nurse Nancy cool, but cool. And Peachbox probably heard about it from the stone age. I remember seeing the weekly BA stats and Joe Garagiola (eta - maybe it was Uecker?) was always right there at .200.

With a drop used, it's nice to know where I'll be sitting (most likely) for this quiz. Should've known better with the Trolley Song and I switched Andersonville to Gulag before submitting. Grrrrrrrr....

Looking forward to the rest of the reveal!
