When's Opening Day?
You may have heard of the multiple choice test(?) that was given to University of Georgia basketball players; now is your chance to take it yourself. Samples:
2. How many players are allowed to play at one time on any one team in a regulation game?
7. How many points does one field goal account for in a Basketball Game?
In the same spirit, then, I give you the Linkmeister baseball test:
In a baseball game, a triple is worth how many bases?
Where do the New York Yankees play their home games?
a. Dodger Stadium
b. Yankee Stadium
c. Fenway Park
c. Wrigley Field
Was Babe Ruth?
a. a baseball player
b. a misspelt candy bar name
c. Ruth Bader Ginzburg's childhood nickname
d. a large blue ox
Winners receive season tickets to the 2004 Hawaii Islanders
AAA baseball team's home games.

What about the plane tickets to get there? Should we just assume that they're included? Of course, we'll be staying with you.
Will you pick me up at the airport????
If I provide my own transportation to HNL and have my own hotel, does that give me a better chance of winning? And I know Solonor -- that should count for something.
Hell, I know him too! Pick me! Pick me!
Ahem. This tells me something about the "click-thru" rate I have; there hasn't been a Hawai'i Islanders baseball team here since 1987 or so, which could have been learned from reading the page I linked to. ;)
That being said, you're all welcome to come watch the Hawai'i Islanders arena football team later this year. ;)
Hehehe. I read the post.
When I play solo leagues in OOTP, I always create a Honolulu Volcanos team, along with an Anchorage Kings. :)
The baseball quiz is too easy! :P
Darn, I was hoping to have some baseball to watch on my HNL layovers! I guess I'll have to wait for Arena Football.
