I was at 80%, I couldn't remember who beat Jon for his first loss or Frank's line on his first game back, I remembered the injured hip and the 0-Fer, I just couldn't remember how many or if he walked or not.

Also got 80%. Couldn't remember who snapped the second 8 game losing streak or what DH's save total was at when it was snapped. The last one sure seemed like something I should know, too. Fun times.

I got 60%. Man, that's a tough quiz. I wonder what a Cubs quiz would look like?

What former Cubs player now plays for Baltimore?

a. Ryne Sandburg
b. Ronnie Woo-Woo
c. Sammy Sosa
d. Trick question. Baltimore doesn't have a team.
d. All of the above

Shouldn't Ryan Sandburg also be a choice?
Or maybe Kerry Woods?

I originally had the Frank answer correct, but went back ansd changed it before I submitted it.

Still got 90 percent.

I got 90%. I missed the first question about how the Sox scored on Opening Day (which is bad since I was there). I guessed incorrectly that the Sox scored on a double when in fact Konerko doubled and the error on the Indians plated the run.

I got 80%. I messed up the Angels beating Garland and TB ending the 8 game streak. I'm ashamed.

I got 90% but admittedly peaked on the who beat Garland question. Seems like one we all should have known yet almost everyone seems to have gotten it wrong.

I got 70%. I didn't really watch the 2-1 Coors game and never saw who drove in the runs for us.

I forgot that Tampa snapped our second 8 game streak, I thought it was Baltimore.

And I thought Garland was the first to beat Minnesota. I shouldn't have missed that one because it was the fourth game of the year and El Duque has been the fourth starter. For some reason I had Garland in my mind as the fourth starter...nice brain fart. I remember that game clear as a bell though.

I'm your equal. I nailed them all as well. Aurorans have good memories.:cool:

I had to stop and think a minute to remember Frank's line, but I was at that game, so I figured it out eventually. I also had to scratch my head a bit to recall who drove in the runs for us during that 2-1 game at Colorado. Those were the hardest two.

80%... couldn't remember Frank's exact line in first game back or which was the first team we swept... for some reason, I thought it was the Blue Jays at the skydome but I forgot there was one before that.. oh well!

Been a great season to reflect on so far...

The way I got the two pitcher questions was that I remember that Buehrle v. Santana matchup, and I knew that the first game of the year was the 4th starter. Also, BMac started the last Cubs game for El Duque, so the first game pitcher was the 2nd starter, Freddy.
