HOST GAME- Round 16- A2

#1 Post by » 04 Jun 2003, 08:49

Sorry, I thought this was supposed to be up today, not yesterday. I am going out of town in an hour or two so the game will run until sometime on Friday when I get back.

Movie sports teams

I'll list the name of the movie. It's your job to tell me the name of the main sports team from that movie. Partial answers will garner partial credit. For example, if I said Any Given Sunday you would get 1/2 point for The Sharks and a full point for the Miami Sharks. note- not all movies give a full name for the teams.

I will accept only 1 guess per question, but (provided you can gice a convincing argument for your answer) I will be lenient with my scoring. There are 20 questions, but a maximum of 20 points is available.

1 Slap Shot
2 Rudy
3 The Replacements
4 Bull Durham
5 Major League
6 A League of Their Own
7 Blue Chips
8 The Fan
9 Necessary Roughness
10 The Natural
11 Hoosiers
12 8 Men Out
13 Major League III: Back to the Minors
14 Remember The Titans
15 The Babe
16 Like Mike
17 Wildcats
18 Air Bud
19 The Rookie
20 Brian's Song
21 Fever Pitch
22 Angels in the Outfield
The :) means it's all ok.

may we use imdb? or something? As far as I know, I have seen only about 5 of these movies and, well, some may have a different name here. But if you think it will be too easy, I will try and use other resources (like my brain :wink: ) :roll:

Go ahead and cheat as much as your conscience will allow :D

I don't really care what resources you use.

Let's give this about 4 more hours.

If you've been holding off, now's a good time to get those answers in.

Don't worry, toto. You got in just in time. I'm going to start running the scores, now, though. So, if anyone else needs to get in the time is almost up.

It's not what I ooopsed for...I posted all my answers in the thread but quickly edited it. I guess nobody noticed. :oops: :D

I should have known more of those than I did. Alas.

While we're on the subject, if I hear another football analogy or Remember the Titan reference, I'm going to kill someone. Spending 6 days with 815 males largely from rural Arkansas will do that to a guy.
