We changed things up a little bit in episode 9. Our friend Marc was gracious enough to join us to act as the host of the show and he brought his own question. Marc is our favorite local trivia host and did a great job. We look forward to his participation whenever he’s available.
What was also great about Marc pulling the questions is that it allowed Chris and I too operate on a level playing field, each getting the same question as the other. I noticed that this brought out the competitiveness in both of us. I think it’s a great change and I hope you will as well.
We start the show today with the 1992 Dream Team and end it with lead singers. On the way we tackled questions about OJ Simpson, Movie Storylines and even had to figure out an anagram. Play along with the show yourself and tell us how you did!

Within 10 either way, how many electoral votes are required to win a presidential election?
I had to laugh at myself. I was thinking it was either 257 or 282. Even with the 10 point cushion in both directions I was going to be wrong either way I went. I completely bracketed the range of right responses

Name 4 of the 5 states that do not have a sales tax.
Oregon, New Hampshire, Delaware, Alaska, Montana
Obviously we meant to say hippie filled states here, but what can you do. Interestingly enough, I didn’t have a view or Oregon as being an overtly liberal state until recently. I work with someone who lives in Oregon now and she’s been telling me about it. I think my favorite line from her is that the people in Oregon protest so much that they would have a protest to protest the fact that there was nothing to protest.

Who directed 3 Men and a Baby?
What horse was the last Triple Crown winner?
So I looked up damsire after the show. It turns out that in horse breeding the mother is called a dam. As such, the damsire is the sire of the dam. In other words, it’s the grandfather on the mother’s side. In the case of Cigar his mother was Solar Slew, the daughter of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew.

Which Led Zeppelin song got its name due to an animal that wandered into the studio while they were recording the song?
According to Wikipedia cashmere is the type of goat that the soft wool cashmere comes from. In addition, cashmere is an older spelling of the word Kashmir which is the name of the Led Zeppelin song that I was referencing in the discussion. I didn’t know the two were actually related until looking it up.
