oh lordie. Boston Braves became the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Redskins, depending upon which sport we were talking about.


Doh, I thought Brady was pickel free vs Carolina. I knew that was his best statistical SB. My intial thought was Joe Montana. I'll go with him b/c I know he had 11 TDs and 0 INTs in all 4 SBs IIRC.


good call, he is in 2nd place (along with i think, Steve Young)

1 game. no interceptions, lotsa passes. think "greatest show on earth"

Which QB had the most # of pass attempts without an interception in a single Super Bowl?


Kurt Warner

You must spread some reputation around before giving it to Garnett again.


Baseball:
Who holds the record for most perfect innings pitched in a single game? (hint, he lost the game in extra innings) more hints - Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews were on the team that eventually won, and the pitcher who tossed the 12 perfect innings was a pitching coach for the Pirates when they last won the World Series

Hockey:
Who holds the record for the highest career goals/game average (players with > 200 goals)? (hint - it isn't Mario, and it isn't Wayne) It isn't Maurice Richard either - another hint, he was the first to score 50 in 50 after Richard did it

Everyone's getting the football ones, no one is getting the hockey and baseball.

So, for football...

4 teams in NFL history have had multiple 1000-yard rushers in the same season.

HERE'S a stumper I bet. I'll even give a hint on this one.

What NFL QB threw for 4000+ yards in a season once, but never broke 3000 yards in any other season? :D

Baseball

Since the Cy Young Award began in 1956, who is the only National League pitcher to have won 25 or more games in a season without winning the award?

well, Koufax did it like 3 times in 4 years, but he won the Cy Youngs those years I think. I think Drysdale got 25, Ford got 25

Denny McLain got 30 I think same year Gibson did his sick ERA (asked that question a bit earlier) but I'm thinking McLain got a Cy Young because they had split up into NL/AL Cy Youngs by then.

I think it was that year, there were a bunch of sick performances that year by pitchers, led to the pitcher's mound being dropped.

Lesse, Sam McDowell, Fergie Jenkins, Juan Marichal, Denny McLain, Jim Palmer, uh...is it one of these guys?

Pretty damn good man!! Juan Marichal lost it to Koufax not once, but three times!!!

Well I'm guessing if the other 2 players had 175 minutes we can ignore the Ron Francis years! Was Kevin Stevens one of them?

Pretty damn good man!! Juan Marichal lost it to Koufax not once, but three times!!!

yeah, I couldn't remember if 68 was one of the years or not. I knew Marichal had a helluva run and didn't really get too many awards and whatnot. That was the ultimate pitcher's decade though, that last half of the 60s/early 70s.


Baseball:
Only 3 pitchers in MLB history have averaged more than 11.5 K's/9 innings pitched for an entire season. Pedro did it twice, Kerry Wood did it once.

The Big Unit!!!

yup. I figured that one would be pretty obvious, since there's really only 2 guys who would seem appropriate for that type of thing.

Imagine if Unit had started off his career with control and multiple pitches? He'd have like 6000 k's by now. :p


Hockey:
What is the only line in NHL history to have 3 players with > 45 goals, 3 players with > 55 assists, all 3 players > 100 points, and 2 of the 3 linemates with > 175 PIM in the same season? hint - Mario was the one that DIDN'T have > 175 PIM


Well I'm guessing if the other 2 players had 175 minutes we can ignore the Ron Francis years! Was Kevin Stevens one of them?

whoot! That's one of 'em! And yeah, I don't think St. Ron even accumulated 175 PIM over the course of an entire decade. :D

So we are still left with the following:

Football:
HERE'S a stumper I bet. I'll even give a hint on this one.

What NFL QB threw for 4000+ yards in a season once, but never broke 3000 yards in any other season? :D

additional hint - the guy's top receiver was Carlos Carson (who?) imagine if he had Tony Gonzalez *cackle* oh the stupid worthless bull**** I have stuck in my head....

Hockey:
The Pittsburgh Penguins had as a #1 line all 3 guys > 48 goals, all 3 guys > 50 assists, all 3 guys > 100 points, and 2 of the 3 guys had > 175 PIM. Mario was one that DIDN'T have > 175 PIM, Kevin Stevens was the 2nd linemate. Who was the 3rd?

Hint - he played a short period of time with the Penguins. Prior to that, he was a longtime fixture with one of the two Penguins archenemies within the old divisions at the time.

Baseball:
Which player has the most Gold Gloves in his career at each position NOT INCLUDING GREG MADDUX? I'll give reps to anyone who can name the #1 at each position (pitcher, catcher, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF)
Again, Greg Maddux recently set the record for pitchers and overall, but who was the #2 pitcher, and who was #1 at each of the above-mentioned positions?

#2 Pitcher was Jim Kaat
#1 for catcher has to be Pudge
#1 for SS "The Wizard of OZ" Ozzie Smith
#1 for 3B is Brooks Robinson..greatest 3B of all time.
#1,#2,#3 for OF are Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Ken Griffey Jr. and Al Kaline are tied with 10 each.
#1 for 1B ????
#1 for 2B I have a glazed over look, but I remember Roberto Alomar doing good for several years. I just don't think he won enough.

#1 for 2B I have a glazed over look, but I remember Roberto Alomar doing good for several years. I just don't think he won enough.

Alomar beat out Ryne Sandberg and Bill Mazeroski. He wuold've had most consecutive out of about everybody if Knoblauch wouldn't have snagged it in 95 or 96 or whatever.

you're almost correct with the OF. Clemente and Mays didn't have 10 (giggle) So correct yourself before I dub you the winner!

as for 1B, I'll give a hint...you used to get Sports Illustrated, right? He was on the cover because he led the NL in batting with a .344 average and shared NL MVP with Pops.

oh wait. That was before you were born I think. :p


Hah that hint made it almost too easy. Gotta be Rick Tocchet.

yup. I figured that would make it easy. Waht's funny is the year before, Kevin Stevens actually had 252 PIM, so that line (Mario, Tocc and Stevens) would've been comprised by 2 of the best power forwards of all time (season-wise) along with one of the best centers of all time.

and to think, they didn't even get past the Islanders that year (Frickin' Kasparaitis!)

Okay, so we still have a bit of the baseball one left, but I'll add to it

Baseball:
a) Who has won the most Gold Gloves at 1B and in the OF
b) Who has won the Gold Glove every season they were in the ML (players > 5 seasons played, only)

Football:
Okay, HERE'S a wild one for you...and NO PEAKING! Don't look it up doggone it!

With Adrian Peterson having such a dominant year prior to his injury, much was made about him making a run at Eric Dickerson's rookie rushing record of 1800ish yards in his rookie season.

Whose rookie rushing record did Dickerson break?

DON'T LOOK IT UP! :)

Hockey:
What players are tied for the most consecutive 30-goal seasons in a career? DON'T LOOK IT UP!!!!

I'll give a hint to this one...chances are VERY good it's not who you initially thought, nor is it your 2nd or 3rd choice. :)
