Well that was fun.  Shot a short movie over the weekend for a film festival, got a callback audition for the lead in a feature-length film, finished a long-standing cabinet project and drank beer this weekend.  Holy crip, busy.

 

Friday's trivia (worth no points since Phil ruined it on Friday (runs out crying like a 12-year old girl))

 

Name the last Cubs pitcher to win 20 games six seasons in a row.

 

 

Weekend trivia

Which player has the most Opening Day starts at SS for the Cubs. How many did he and/or she have?

 

Monday trivia

How many hits did HoF 2B Ryne Sandberg record for the Phillies before they traded him to the Cubs in 1982?

Jenkins on the Friday question

 

Shawon Dunston for weekend

 

182 for Monday

 

Feature length  Feature.  Besides I always assume you had more of the look of a radio guy.

I'll say 10 for the number of Dunston starts, and 10 for the number of Sandberg hits.

 

I expect the movie trailer to be posted.

And what is a Cakendar? Is that what you celebrated your callback with?

 

4/5 right answers has to be a new record. I win at the Cakendar.

Sandberg had exactly 1 pre Cubs hit. And it took him a while to get his next couple.

I was going to guess Kessinger with 10. So, if Dunston is right, I'll go with Dunston at 11.

Hey, that's 80%. Your first B-, way to go!

 

(Though technically you didn't give the number of seasons that Dunston started at short, so you only get half credit for that one, bringing the grade down to a 70, C-. Maybe not a record, but still a personal best!)

But as Joe mentioned, no points for the Fergie/20 win seasons question.  So technically a 62.5% score.  That's an F -- or barely passing if you go to one of those new liberal schools.

Do they still get grades? I thought they all just got participation stickers on their papers.

Bonus question which position was Sandberg playing when he got his first hit?


You better Dance, you better live, you better love with a sweet romance. While you still have the chance, I think you better Dance.
