Playing on my previous post rant, trivia for which I do not have the answers! Name players and the rules that were written to limit their dominance!

I’ll start Wilt’ : Shot blocking rules! Hope I’m not just quoting urban legend, because I don’t know for sure!

They changed the dunking rule when Jabbar went to UCLA.

Name the Hall of Fame coach that flew 30 combat missions during WWII?

I do believe that be Tom Landry?

3 parter for a small distraction from some disturbing times...

Who are the only brothers in MLB history to both throw a no hitter?

What siblings pitched complete game shutouts for the same team in both ends of a double header?

Joe Niekro hit 1 HR in his major league career? Who did he hit if off of?

I am pretty sure that both Ken and Bob Forsch had no-no's.

I am trying to think of brothers who pitched for the same team.  So I will go with the Martinez bros(Ramon and Pedro).

It has to be brother Phil.

Correct on 1&3...

#2 hint...one of the brothers is on the HOF, and the other actually pitched a no hitter in the 2nd game of game the aforementioned double header...

The HoFer said this after his brother's no no...

"If I'd a knowed **** was gonna throw a no-hitter, I'd a throwed one too."

Good questions. I always thought the Maddux, Leiter, Perry....brothers were the answers to most of those questions. Always forget about Dean.

Who is the only Reds pitcher to take a loss in an ASG?

Wow. No clue. Watch it be one of the great ones they've had. Look forward to the answer in about 7 hours. Off for a day of edging, weeding, more weeding, and more weeding.

Hint:  The pitcher was really the only bright spot on some very bad Reds teams.

I really wanted to say Danny Graves or Browning but since it was a guess I went with the Big Dog.
