Jerry Puts Randy in his Place - Give-Away to Question #1 but worth it
Some Questions From Last Week
(1) What number -- a multiple of the number 5 -- worn by Jerry Rice and has been retired by the San Francisco 49ers?
(2) On March 5, 1616, a book called On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres -- the seminal work of heliocentric theory -- was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books by the Catholic Church. Which man wrote this book? He had been dead for 73 years, so it didn’t really bother him that much.
(3) Bob Gunton’s character in The Shawshank Redemption might be able to tell you that the number 68 bus leaves from which TTC subway station located on the Bloor Danforth line between Kennedy and Victoria Park?

Last Wednesday -- March 5 -- saw a close battle with the Frakkin' Cylons coming out on top with a whopping 57 points. Great work from Graham, Colin, et al. Congrats guys! Alice Munro's Hos finished a close second on 55 points. Well done. Third place went to Shizzle My Quizzle (52 points), while Aardwolves of London (51 points), Your Tan Pales in Comparison (51… welcome back, Anne!), The Perry Sites (51), All the Jingle Ladies (48), The Pythons (47), The Old Man and the . . . (47), The Shia Labouef Fan Club (47), and Battlestar Scholastica (45) rounded out the top 12 teams. Good work everyone!
The individual glory round was closely fought. We went into tie-breaker mode after both Conor G and Danielle answered $72 million for the US gross box office receipts of Ferris Bueller's Day Off (correct answer $70,136,369). Danielle won out by getting closest to the birthdate of the main star in the highest grossing movie of 1986. That movie was Top Gun; that star was Tom Cruise; that birthdate was July 3, 1963. Conor put Jan 1965; Danielle put March 1962. Won it by *that* much. Well done, Danielle! In the toss off, Liam from Snoop Quizzle went tails in the final round, while John went heads. And tails it was. Congrats Liam!
