The regular season is over but Jayson Stark is still hard at work.
Today’s question is playoff-themed. The answers are hyperlinked below.
It’s this guy. I also don’t know why I was so surprised that it’s this guy, too.
BONUS: This guy is actually the overall leader in postseason home runs, but didn’t play in the bigs this year.
The origins of this picture round date back to 2010. I needed a bonus sheet for my 3rd or 4th week running trivia at Maddy’s. It was raining that day so I managed to put together a couple rounds of rain trivia.
That first rendition was limited to movie posters with rain on them. I’ve since updated it to include any scene with rain in it.
Side note: November Rain by Guns N’ Roses literally just started playing on my shuffle of 2,000+ songs.
Want the answers? It’ll probably cost you a Tweet or a Like. I’ll give you a clue though. There are 3 Best Picture Oscar winners in there.
Good luck! And stay dry out there.
Cloudy with a chance of Trivia.
There are three main routes you can take for your Pub Trivia team name:
1) Your tried and true team name that you use week in and week out
2) An overtly sexual pun
3) Capitalizing on a recent news event
We had a rowdy crowd for Trivia Night at Ventnor Sports Cafe’s yesterday. I’d like to take all the credit, but certain sporting events were the likely cause. The Labatt rep handing out free beer and t-shirts certainly helped too.
Rounds 2 and 4 were dedicated to the lazy clown-babies that shut down the government. I managed to squeeze in one politics question but the rest are pretty pop-culture-driven.
We’re heading into the home stretch, folks. Does Jayson Stark even continue his glorious trivia endeavors into the playoffs? Find out next week!
In the meantime, see what was on deck morning. (And no, the answer isn’t Todd Helton. For the simple reason that this is a pitcher question).
Jayson Stark had a surprise guest ask this week’s trivia question on Mike and Mike: Perennial go-to answer,Todd Helton!
As I mentioned last week, Helton announced his retirement at the end of the season, making him ineligible for next year’s brand new batch of current-player-multiple-answer-style questions. So there’s only a couple weeks left for Jayson Stark to sneak in as many more as he can.
With all the whatever surrounding the recent Batman announcement, I thought it was perfect timing for a Ben Affleck movie face quiz (ala the Arnold quiz I did two years ago).
The toughest part about making it was there’s actually a crap-ton of Ben Affleck movies to choose from. So I tried to find a balance of his awesome movies and his horrendous ones, his early years and the more recent, and his easily identifiable roles and more obscure characters.
