    I refuse to participate because the quiz is bogus. There's no way Starlin Castro and Welington Castillo have ever both been on base at the same time.

    Perhaps Castro was a pinch-runner and Castillo was hit by a pitch.

    40% which is fine if its alcohol content in a bourbon, but not a test grade.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    60% disappointed, but yea, those are some obscure plays. I wonder if the paid umps would get them right if confronted with the situations in the middle of a game?

    It's one of very few sensible explanations, for sure.

    I decided to go back and take the quiz once Brutus's loophole came to light, but I only got 3 right so I can only assume that my original claim of the quiz being bogus was correct. Shenanigans declared.
