I can't get it to be interactive. Got another linky, Chip?

Whoops, never mind. Figured it out. And this was the easiest quiz ever. Any Sox fan over 40 who doesn't go 5/5 on this should be ashamed of him- or herself.

The question I missed was the Soderholm one...I didn't know he was ever on the Flubs.

The starting-both-ends-of-a-doubleheader question was deceptive because the Sox game 1 starter in the Yankee Stadium twi-nighter actually was knocked out in the first inning. He barely warmed up. It would have been more interesting to ask, not just who was originally scheduled to start the second game, but what his real first name was, as his nickname was shortened from his middle name.

That answer would have been Clair.

I was actually at a game against Cleveland where Wilbur came on to start a game that had been suspended the night before. He got the win in that game and then threw a complete-game shutout in the second game.

9 out of 12, I talked myself out of question # 8 about Wilbur Wood. I thought it was a trick question.

I knew Hoyt Wilhelm tutored the young Wilbur Wood while they were teamates in 1967. But I also heard Wood threw the knuckleball in High School and abandoned it in the low minor leagues while he was in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.

Wilhelm taught Wood the finer points of throwing the knuckler and made him confident enough to make it his full time pitch.

I didn't know either, but the key to that quiz is eliminate the people you feel strongly didn't fit the question. I knew both the Goose & Wood were fat. I never saw Wood play live but I saw Goose near the end of his career. He seemed fat to me. But then I remember Castillo & Wood reminded me more of him :D

The starting-both-ends-of-a-doubleheader question was deceptive because the Sox game 1 starter in the Yankee Stadium twi-nighter actually was knocked out in the first inning. He barely warmed up. It would have been more interesting to ask, not just who was originally scheduled to start the second game, but what his real first name was, as his nickname was shortened from his middle name.

That answer would have been Clair.

As in Clair Barth Johnson. Just as with the Hopkins parents, you must wonder what Mom and Dad were thinking.

I was at the Wilbur doubleheader fiasco, but I didn't see him pitch in game 1. I left work at 5, and by the time I had taken the subway up to the Bronx, Wilbur had hit the showers.

3 of 5
I guessed on all of them:(:
All of the questions were before my time, so I had no idea whatsoever.
The three I answered correctly I picked the answer that made the most sense.

4 out of 5 on the Sirrott quiz. Include me as one who never knew Soderholm was with the Scrubs.

Only 2 of 32 on the nickname quiz, but I've only heard of maybe half of the players, let alone their nicknames.

:?:

Sorry for quoting myself here, folks, but with all due respect to my fellow WSI brethren who missed the Soderholm question: according to Baseball-reference.com, Soderholm never did play a game for the north side pond scum. How's a loyal Sox fan supposed to know about a guy who apparently had so little left in the tank that he couldn't break camp from Scrub spring training? Foul question, Sirrott!

Yes, and he asked asinine questions like which rock group never played at
old Comiskey Park. Question 1 why the hell should I care and question 2
what does it have to do with the White Sox

That was the one I missed, and thought the same exact thing...lol. "Oh, this is stupid."

Couldn't NBC invest some money in technology so you could click on the answer on the screen instead of manually keeping your score?

5 for 5.

The only question that wasn't an easy lay-up for me was #4. I figured it had to be Bob Elson even though I've never heard of the guy, until now.

This is one of those quizes that's either pathetically easy because you are Bob Sirott's era, or impossible because the questions are so obscure.

Here, try these (http://whitesoxinteractive.com/Fun&Games/TriviaQuiz1.htm). They aren't quite so difficult.

I bet even Bob Sirott could get at least 4.

:wink:

7 of 12.

That one was more of a challenge

Jack Drees, who did Sox television up until the time Harry Caray became a TV announcer, was on camera sometimes. He was recognizable enough that as a teenager, I remember my friends and I seeing him drive out of the players/employees parking lot at the old park in a beat up car. He also did national commercials, but not for beer.

Ralph Faucher, Who's the only person to ever play for the Sox and Cubs in the same day.

I got four of five. Missed the tavern one. It closed in 1989 when I was 11. So please forgive me. GO SOX!

:gulp: 5 out of 5....the only one that was even MILDLY challenging was about the 70's home-run hitter question. While waiting in line at a U.S. Cellular store recently to see THE trophy with my son, we cleaned up on Sox trivia answer goodies. I won't tell you the question, but one answer was "Jimmy Dykes".For the last 3 years, my sweetheart Sandy has known what it takes to give me the ultimate Christmas present: anything nice centering on St. Ignatius, the Fighting Illini and the White Sox.....in reverse order. This Christmas I unwrapped a box from Mitchell & Ness, the high-end purveyor of throwback jerseys and jackets. Before opening the box, I made a wish: "Nellie Fox '59", then held my breath and opened it up. "Damn, she's good!" I said to myself as I put on old #2.We saw the 14-2 drubbing of Boston in person, watched the ALCS at Kork & Kerry and experienced game 1 of the Series at Schaller's, where I saw a 70-year-old man cry when Jermaine Dye hit the 1st inning dinger against Roger Clemens. When you can't get into a game, Schaller's is the place to be. They even have the White Sox fight songs on the jukebox!Believe it or not, McCuddy's will rise again in 2006. Watch my postings for details or contact me at soxillinimatt@yahoo.com.
