Tigers and NY Rangers.

Only two NBA teams with titles in three different decades with no multiples are 76ers/Pistons.

Only NFL team is Cleveland/STL/LA Rams

Several other MLB teams have done three.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the return of Apollo 13, what is the name of the only empty spacecraft still intact in space which was once crewed by men?

(Very small hint: It has nothing to do with Apollo 13.)

Nope, it is still crewed. I’ll clarify my question a little.)

Is it the Soviet station that docked with Skylab?

Soyuz! That was a correct response I gave on my episode!

No, Soyuz spacecrafts have not remained in space because they’re necessary to return the astronauts/cosmonauts back to Earth (much like the space shuttle. You can take a Soyuz to the ISS but if you’re coming back to Earth you’re doing it on a Soyuz (especially these days).

Here’s another hint. It was an American spacecraft.

It is not. It returned to Earth in the mid-70s.

Nope. Not a manned spacecraft.

Another hint. One of the men to have manned it later walked on the Moon.

This is a hard one. I thought there might be a couple science geeks who might get it though. I’ll put the answer in a spoiler tag.
[+] spoiler
It’s the LM Snoopy, the lunar module for the Apollo 10 “test run” to the moon. Unlike future Apollo missions where the LM was jettisoned near Earth and then burned up in Earth’s atmosphere, Snoopy was jettisoned into deep space.
More here. Also a spoiler though.

There have only been 4 players with 75 receiving yards in a Super Bowl for two different teams.

Jerry Rice
Anquan Boldin
Wes Welker

Who's the fourth? Both games happened in the 00s. His team won one and lost one. This will probably not be the last hint.

I was at the game where Eagles fans taunted him over the death of his kid. Other one was against the Giants. Ricky Proehl was (and is) white.

I was going to say Muhsin Muhammad, but he only went 3 of 4 for 35 and a score in the Colts-Bears Super Bowl. He went 4 of 10 for 140 and that long score in the Panthers-Pats game.

Wally Pipp got Wally Pipp'd in 1925; in 1924 Pipp led the AL in the same category Gehrig would go on to lead in 1926. Name that fuckin' category.

You are either all dumb or they led two categories, which would seem tough to believe.

Pruitt is the big winner of the game. Ryan gets last place as he had the most incorrect answers.

What was the last country to officially abolish slavery and in what year did this occur?

The country is a way out there answer that you probably won't guess.
