Wednesday night on NESN they really reached the bottom of the barrel when it came time for the Aflac trivia question and I am curious if the same happens in Chicago

The question was

Who was the winning pitcher for the White Sox on September 19, 1997?

The crew in the truck just looked at each other like this :?: http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:CR2qEMi3gqXqHM:http://www.oddculture.com/ba/images/aflac.jpg (http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.oddculture.com/ba/images/aflac.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.oddculture.com/ba/sum_of_all_fears.html&h=204&w=350&sz=12&hl=en&start=2&tbnid=CR2qEMi3gqXqHM:&tbnh=70&tbnw=120&prev=/images%3Fq%3Daflac%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D)

Yeah, when they ask those obscure ones about other teams you can assume the answer is someone who now plays/coaches/broadcasts for your team, or that day's opponent. But does Foulke qualify?

and he has a player option for 2007 :whiner:


look the Red Sox could not have won in 2004 without him but since then he has been a waste of a roster spot.

Even some of the not so obscure ones deal with somebody in uniform for that game.

fenway, I love your signature. That's one of my favorite essays. I like the part about Bernie Carbo.

"... so laid-back he is always, in his soul, stretched out in the tall grass, one arm under his head, watching the clouds and laughing"

Of course, there are those who learn after the first few times. They grow out of sports. And there are others who were born with the wisdom to know that nothing lasts. These are the truly tough among us, the ones who can live without illusion. I am not that grown up or up-to-date. I am a simpler creature, tied to more primitive patterns and cycles. I need to think something lasts forever, and it might as well be that state of being that is a game; it might as well be that, in a green field, in the sun.
