Trivia: Sports Movies Part Deux

image from mobilwi.typepad.com
Last night, I hosted our monthly quizzo at Drinker's. The topic? Sports movies: part 2 (part 1 was in July).

Anyway, if you want to see how you would have done, the questions are after the jump, with the answers at the bottom. Remember, this is for a mainstream bar audience, so some of the questions might be too easy (or hard) for some.

Hop it.

  1. Holy fuck! Jerry Maguire came out in the year Leigh Steinberg?! That’s amazing! How many people answered that correctly?

  2. I got 18 1/2 this time 16 last time…. What is with you forgetting to put the year movies came out? You did it for Jerry Macguire this time and Rocky last time

  3. Happy Veterans day, Slappy Boyo and fellow CB-ers (and Jan). I hope you celebrated it well and thanked a veteran or more like me.
    I bettya that arsehole Jay Mohr didn’t thank any vets. What an arsehole! If’n he got Irish in him, I and the rest of the Sons of Erin are banning him for life. Plus he’s dessecrating that redhead chick from Unhappily Ever After, Nikki Cox, on a nightly basis. I guess if gals like that go for putzes like that, we’re approaching the end of days for sure.
