    OK, now we can ask questions on anything under the sun. Sports or otherwise.

    e.g.

    Which two forum members/moderators/owners are cross dressers?

    How many Stomachs does a cow have?

    Who won Super Bowl 20?

    etc.

    If you get it correct you are tagged and you get to ask the next question.

    No looking up answers. Cheaters never prosper.:yellowprison:

    I'll start.

    What is an "ephus pitch"? (You don't need to be exact on this one, just be close).

    It's like an exaggerated slow arcing pitch they used to use in baseball..maybe Satchel Page threw it? Anyway I use the term when I'm playing catch with my son.

    Good Bill. Tag, you're it.

    It's a pitch thats really slow and is easy to hit but has an almost vertical arc.

    It's rarely thrown these days.

    Sticking with baseball....what was the Homer in the Gloamin'?

    edit: just give a general description...very general. This isn't an essay question.

    Homer in the Gloamin.............

    grandpa used to talk baseball to me all the time. I can't remember the example he gave me, but I think it refers to a walk off home run.

    Well...it was a home run so I'll give you credit. It refers to a famous Wrigley Park Homer hit when it was nearly dark. Gabby Hartnett in the 1930s.

    You are it.
