SWAMPCRASH 2020 - Week Twelve

Post by Ryan » Mon May 18, 2020 11:20 am

NO GOOGLING

SEASON-LONG REMINDERS

-Each week consists of 10 questions (5 sports, 5 not). The Swamper Bowl will have 20 questions.
-Through W16, each set of questions will include 4 Swamper-submitted questions (2 sports, 2 other)
-All questions in W17 and the playoffs will come from me
-I'll post questions here and email them to the group. Make sure you DO NOT REPLY ALL if answering by email


SCORING

-Correct answers get a score equal to the number of people who said it
-Wrong answers get the value of the highest-scoring correct answer +5
-Low score wins
-Standings, tiebreakers, playoff matchups, all determined exactly as they would be in the real NFL


INSTRUCTIONS

-For your own questions only, you may "cheat" and submit any answer you want
-Send answers to ryantfriedman (gmail, and don't forget the middle initial T) or private message here
-From time to time, there will be discussion, clarification, questions, etc. in these threads. I will NOT be emailing any important updates to questions that may affect answers, so it's on you to keep up before submitting

For the Olympics question, does that include events within larger sports (e.g. track and field)?

I don’t know for sure if any of these were “events” under a larger umbrella but I don’t think so. Certainly nothing as obvious as “175-meter dash”

Interesting... I'm very confident in my wrestler, and was confident in my author, but now I'm not sure. I thought I played it super safe on both, and I'm confident my author is dead, too.

Went and checked after I sent. Any chance you expand that wrestler question to top 44 as of that year?

Also, my food one doesn't seem to be on the list either.

But, I'm on a bye!
