Trivia 4/23



TRIVIA 4/23

DID YOU KNOW...

MUHAMMAD ALI;
As a toddler, he always walked on his tiptoes.
When he was a teenager, he liked to play football, but only touch football. He thought tackle games were too rough.
He has an intense fear of flying and because of it almost refused to go to the 1960 Olympics in Rome, where he won the gold medal that launched his boxing career.

1. Who was the only pitcher in major league history to win both the Cy Young and Most Valuable Player awards in the same year, in unanimous votes?
(Hint; it was in the 1960's)
2. If I'm a "nutmegger", what state do I live in?
3. What was the name of the cartoon cuckoo in those "Cocoa Puffs" commercials?
4. Do you recall the name of Col. Sherman Potter's horse on the TV series, "M*A*S*H*?
5. What's the minimum number of lanes in an Olympic-sized swimming pool?
6. What African nation was once known as Abyssinia?
7. Can you name the 1950's TV sit-com in which the lead character attended "Brooklyn Heights High"?
8. What year were "Post-It Notes" introduced?
TRUTH OR CRAP ??
