Think You're Smarter Than Me, Jerk?
But I found this quiz over at sporcle.com where you are challenged to name the players that made up the Opening Day starting lineups for the Tigers from 1991-2010 within 15 minutes. It's quite fun if you're a Tiger nerd such as myself. So click that link, give it a try, and see how you do. No cheating, jerks! Then come back and compare to how Your Party Host did after the jump.
Did you take the test yet? No cheating, just do it! We'll wait all day on you if we have to.
I got 179/200. Not bad, but I'm still pissed at a couple of them I missed. I'm sure that'll happen to everyone (other than TigerDog who I expect to get 100% within 3 minutes). Here's a list of the guys I whiffed on.
Junior Felix, Rudy Pemberton (who?), Juan Samuel, Mark Lewis, Joe Randa (that was dumb), Joe Oliver, Juan Encarnacion (facepalm), Luis Polonia, Billy McMillon, Craig Paquette, Mike Rivera, Jose Macias, Eric Munson (HOW COULD I FORGET?), Mike Maroth (sorry, Mike...brain fart), Alex Sanchez, Fernando Vina, and Rondell White (ugh!).
I admit, I only got Eddie Williams because I was just typing in random last names at the end.
How did you do? The first person to beat my score gets...well, nothing. I'm poor.
You know-it-all prick.
