Trivia

Recommended Posts

I don't know what it is about me, but I seem to retain useless, meaningless tidbits of information that won't do you a damn bit of good in the real world.  My buddy and I riddle each other all the time.  TBH, he is better than I(I attribute it to him being two years older).  He called me last night just to ask me this........

Who is the only team in MLB history that had 2 sets of siblings playing the infield at the same time?  And who were they?

I am full of useless trivia too.  Though not so much sports trivia but all kinds of useless subjects. 

Stuff like, who originally had Buddy Hollys' seat on the plane that crashed and killed him the Big Bopper and Richie Valens? Also who played Ritchie Valens in the movie La Bamba?

Well my Mom and Dad grew up in that era and were Holly fans.  The legend I was told is that Waylon Jennings lost a coin clip to Valens for the last seat on the plane.  But there is a lot of controversy about the events of that fateful night.

Lou Diamond-Phillips

That is what I have been told.

Waylon Jennings is one of my favorite musicians and Lou diamond Phillips is one of my favorite character actors.

I like Waylon......but there are a lot of different stories surrounding that night.  I really dont know what the truth is.  But I know this much.....Holly, Big Bopper, and Valens died.  Waylon was there at that show as well as Dion and the Belmonts.

Heres an easy one that might be tough 20 years from now. Who is the only MLB player to hit for the cycle in the playoffs?

I need a hint.  Did it happen last night?  LOL

What former major league pitcher, that at one time, had the most K's in a WS game(14) and now has a school named after him in Indiana?

Uh.....no

Yeah.  I just looked it up.  Was trying to think of famous pitchers from Indiana and Brown was the first one that popped into my head.  I won't spoil it for others though.
