TD 433 - LLL (Final results)

Post by clt013 » Mon Oct 28, 2019 8:51 am

The questions in this quiz are based on my experience with various "leagues" connected to such things as dice games, video games and fantasy sports. So I am calling it "LLL" for "Less Learned Leagues". (That letter sequence is also one I've seen too often in regards to my fantasy football teams' game results.)

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) Wrong responses are the "sheep" answer +4
5) All answers are due by 1 PM Central time on Monday, November 4, 2019
6) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

Questions

1. Pursue the Pennant / Diamond Mind Baseball - Back in the mid-80s, I started playing a baseball dice game called Pursue the Pennant. Eventually I shifted to an electronic version titled Diamond Mind Baseball and each year would create my own "themed" leagues, such as all teams in Maryland or Iowa. Another year featured European-based clubs such as the Bratislava Blue Jays and Copenhagen Cardinals. Name one of these people (first + last name required) or phrases that include locations in Europe.

First Dancing with the Stars winner and current General Hospital actress
Supermodel who appeared in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues and played a kicker in 1991 movie Necessary Roughness
Female sports reporter with alliterative name who has appeared on (and guest hosted) ESPN's Around the Horn
Group that reached #4 on Billboard Hot 100 in 2017 with "Feel It Still"
Band featuring Terri Nunn which performed Oscar winning song "Take My Breath Away" for Top Gun
Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel starred in this 2010 film which shares its name with the musical group known for 1988 song "The Promise"
Brand of bottled water produced in Portland, Maine that is named after the original natural spring from which it was drawn
Chicago-based company known for producing hot dogs, deli meats and condiments
American manufacturer of coats and other apparel that in the 1970s was responsible for two-thirds of all raincoats sold in the US
Condition which causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors during captivity

2. Strat-O-Matic - In high school, some friends and I had a league that used the baseball game Strat-O-Matic. Sometimes, we "sang" that name to the tune of "Automatic" by the Pointer Sisters. (Yes, somehow making ourselves even more lame.) Given one of their hit songs, name one of these other musical groups which featured siblings.

(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection (#1 1990)
Stayin' Alive (#1 1978)
The Sign (#1 1994)
Breathless (#34 2001)
Why Can't This Be Love (#3 1986)
Manic Monday (#2 1986)
(They Long to Be) Close to You (#1 1970)
Rhythm of the Night (#3 1985)
MMMBop (#1 1997)
Crush on You (#3 1986)

3. Rotisserie baseball - In 1992, I created a fantasy baseball league (loosely based on rules detailed in a friend's book on Rotisserie leagues) at college. I called my team the Taylor Danes, based on my surname and a popular singer of the time. That woman was born Leslie Wunderman before beginning her successful singing career under a stage name. Writer Mark Twain was born Samuel Clemens before taking his more famous moniker. Name any winner of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

4. Tecmo Super Bowl - Also in college, we had a league playing Tecmo Super Bowl on the Sega Genesis. It did not take long for us to discover that there was a move on defense which led to numerous sacks for one of the linemen. For Cleveland, that was Michael Dean Perry - who was listed as "M.D. Perry" on the screen, which naturally led to our referring to him as "Dr. Perry". Given their character name and the show, name the actor or actress to play one of these TV doctors.

Meredith Grey (Grey's Anatomy)
Gregory House (House)
Frasier Crane (Frasier)
John Becker (Becker)
Jordan Cavanaugh (Crossing Jordan)
Michaela Quinn (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman)
Douglas Howser (Doogie Howser, M.D.)
Marcus Welby (Marcus Welby, M.D.)
Shaun Murphy (The Good Doctor)
James Kildare (Dr. Kildare)

5. NHL '94 - Another Sega league used the game NHL '94. Answer one of these clues to events that occurred in 1994.

January - Shannon Faulkner was first female cadet to attend this South Carolina school
February - This Edvard Munch painting was stolen in Oslo
March - This drama claimed the Best Picture Oscar and Best Director honors for Steven Spielberg
April - This country adopts a new flag to replace the "Oranje, Blanje, Blou"
May - This structure opened - allowing underwater rail travel between two European countries
June - O.J. Simpson and his friend fled from police in this type (make/model) of vehicle
July - This country won the FIFA World Cup in a penalty shootout at the Rose Bowl
August - Sheryl Crow, Joe Cocker and Peter Gabriel were among the acts at this festival in New York
September - Heather Whitestone was the first hearing impaired winner of this competition
October - After three years of exile, Jean-Bertrand Aristide returned to this country
November - This man became the oldest heavyweight champion in boxing history
December - This investigation into real estate dealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton began

6. NBA Live - This Sega game did not include 2-time Olympian Charles Barkley - a fact that we did not discover until after drafting our teams. Give the first name of one of these players to win Olympic gold in men's basketball since 2000.

Mourning
Bosh
Wade
Payton
Barnes
Butler
Lowry
James
Redd
George
Allen
Abdur-Rahim
Prince
Carter

7. Fantasy hockey - Our second foray into fantasy was actually for the NHL. Name a school with multiple NCAA titles in men's hockey. (That means one-time winners such as Bowling Green, Harvard, Northern Michigan, Providence, Union and Yale do not count.)

8. Fantasy basketball - Next up in the "Big 4" sports for us was the NBA - where a Clark Kellogg catchphrase led to my team being called the Stat Sheet Stuffers Supreme. Clark's nickname is "Special K" - which is a popular cereal for Kellogg's. Given the first (and total number of) letters in each word, name one of these Kellogg's cereal brands.

AJ (5,5)
CF (4,6)
CP (4,4)
C (7)
FL (5,5)
FF (7,6)
FM-W (7,4-6)
HS (5,6)
RB (6,4)
RK (4,8)

9. Fantasy football - Three years after diving into baseball, we finally got around to starting a fantasy football league. I called my team the Slobberknockers - based on a term used by college football analyst Tim Brant and WWE announcer Jim Ross. Name one of these people who is in the "celebrity wing" of the WWE Hall of Fame.

All-time hit leader in Major League Baseball
Big guy with nickname of kitchen appliance who scored a touchdown in Super Bowl XX
Long-time Brewers announcer who was also on Mr. Belvedere
Game show host who had a self-titled sitcom with "Cleveland Rocks" as the theme song
Boxer known for biting ears and a cameo in The Hangover
Owner of the USFL New Jersey Generals and reality show host who currently holds a prominent political position
Actor known for roles as a member of The A-Team on television and Clubber Lang in the movie Rocky III
Body builder turned actor turned California governor
Rapper born Calvin Broadus with hits such as "What's My Name?" and "Gin & Juice"
Formerly married to Pamela Anderson, this singer hit #4 in 2002 with the duet "Picture"

10. Australian Football League - Yes, we actually have had a "footy" league. Name one of these Australian actors or actresses.

Oscar winner for The Hours, married to Keith Urban
Nominated for Academy Award (The Sixth Sense) and a Tony (The Wild Party)
Samantha Spade on Without a Trace and Carrie Wells on Unforgettable
Best Supporting Actress (The Aviator) and Best Actress (Blue Jasmine) winner

Actor, director who won Best Actor Golden Globe for role in Loving
Best known for playing Jean Valjean, P.T. Barnum and Wolverine
Winner of Oscar (Shine), Tony (Exit the King) and Emmy (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers) awards
Had a self-titled comedy sketch show before famous role as Mick Dundee

11. (BONUS ROUND) - Since 2005, I have been part of multiple fantasy football leagues - the "original" one with college buddies and/or family members and another with church friends. In that latter group, I change my team's Biblical-themed moniker each season. Unscramble up to 3 of these names of my church league teams [Correct answers = -1 each] {Hint: Many are alliterative or rhyming.}

2005: nizo sinlo
2006: lavacry lavacry
2007: henvein dormsin
2008: rigsit getsir
2010: rety rife
2012: insod askewhas

Interesting... I've been a fan since their heyday and *never once* heard of them being referred to as just "Carpenters".

However, after looking at every logo and every album cover I could find, you are correct. The word "The" is nowhere. Had all their recordings, and I guess I just never never really noticed that.

Originally, I was going to refute your claim, but... I stand corrected...

Only person I was even kinda sure won the award was Bill Cosby, but I was also sure he'd been stripped, and I wasn't willing to take a WAG. Too bad for me, lots of 'obvious' names on that list.

I had no idea the Mark Twain Prize was targeted for comedians and stage performers. He was a writer, and it's called "humor", so it has to be for authors, right? So, I chose to make a WAG between Dave Barry and David Sedaris? Oh, well. Gimme the Sheep +5 :lol: .

Plenty of boardies knew it was for comedy/comedians. But it is a misleading award to name after a dead white guy that wrote humor. The only writers on the list are Neil Simon and potentially Loren Michaels.
