It’s nice to see spring training back in gear. I can finally sense a shade of optimism scattered through the depressing 40 degree, cloudy days New Jersey Februarys are so well known for.
At this point I’m almost excited for allergy season.
I came across a great Sporcle. Challenging but fun – Name every MLB team’s active hits leader. The Easter egg in this is you can name any active player in the team’s top 150 (I think) all time and it’ll give you credit for it.
I got 16 out of 30. The average score is 22-25.
Welcome back to baseball!!
SPORCLE OF THE WEEK: ACTIVE HIT LEADERS BY TEAM
Amongst the cold and depressing month we call February hides the slippery slope to happiness – Pitchers and Catchers!
With baseball just around the corner I retook one of my favorite Sporcles of all-time:
. I’m very sloppy and only was able to recall 21 of the 30 but I’ll call it a success. Name every ballpark in Major League Baseball
Who’s ready for baseball!?!?
I’m a sucker for 90s basketball, and this Sporcle delivers. Since 1992 and until 2011, name the top five NBA scorers from their respective draft class.
Make sure you have 15 minutes to kill. I got 55 of 105 but know I could’ve gotten more. One of those “Oh c’mon I knew that” quizzes.

For example, this is the logo for Santa’s Workshop up in the North Pole. He should get a Twitter.
First off, Merry belated!! This week’s sporcle is the first non-sports one I’ve done. I couldn’t find a sports one that I both liked and wouldn’t embarrass myself.
Very simple – here’s the logo, what is the corporation.
I got 20 of 36 which was right at the average. Can you outSchein me? I dare ya!
SPORCLE OF THE WEEK: CORPORATE LOGOS
My Giants got crushed today, so nostalgia pushed me toward the 2009 Yankees Sporcle: Name every player that played at least one game for the Yankees in 2009.
Two or three years ago I may have gotten 100%, but I’ll settle for 25 out of 45.
SPORCLE OF THE WEEK: 2009 YANKEES
To me, this World Series will forever be known as the one that saved me from a year of annoying Phillies fans. Rowan University was a good choice 🙂
Nothing to do with the Sporcle, but I laughed out loud when I saw this.
Common sports acronyms. NBA, FBS, NHL – what do they actually stand for?
Surprisingly more difficult than I thought. Weird because I’ve heard of all of these, but I guess never took time to learn what they actually stood for.
I got 20 of 30.
SPORCLE OF THE WEEK: SPORTS ACRONYMS
In honor of Black Friday and its great deals, this week’s Sporcle challenges you to name every $100+ million contract in MLB history. Ironic, but festive.
I impressed myself with 19 of 36.
I hope you all enjoyed your
T h a n k s g i v i n g. Now we can get into the real holiday season ! !
*TIP* Bang out all the Yankees first and go from there.
