2010 preseason trivia questions.

Post by Geezaldinho on Sun Aug 15, 2010 11:52 pm

Each year we find out who the old diehards are:

1) Who can give me Christine Sinclair's dog's name?

Bonus points for the breed.


2) How many red cards have the Pilot women amassed this millenium?

Special Bonus if you can name the last Pilot who was sent off.



3) what was Christine's number, and what idol who played her position did she take the number from?

1) sparky, a wienersnitzel.
2) twenty nine send offs. Most recently was Ana Del Boque.
3) Christine wore number 91 in honor of Ron Artest.

2) My guess is six and Megan Rapinoe
3) Christine was number 16 - just like that one KISS song

Maybe you misunderstood. I was asking for RIGHT answers.

Any actual Pilot fans want to give it a try? geek

At least it looks like I won't be needing to bring out the tiebreaker question....

Christine wore #12 in honor of Paul Gascoigne. How can you not be impressed with his partying ability?

The red card question is a toughie... there definitely hasn't been one since 2001, so at least I can partially answer the question about how many UP has amassed this millenium (zero!). But as to who got our last one... no idea, though I can probably guess a few likely suspects.

Good job, but as to which Pilot player got the last Red Card:

Spoiler:
Austin Guerrero got red carded against New Mexico last year. Very Happy Apparently he objected to having Tennis Balls being thrown at him.
I didn't say anything about the last woman who got sent off.

I keep looking at the wayback machine and opponent websites (some actually keep their records) but I have found no references to a Pilot woman ever getting shown a red in the last 20 years or so. If I had to guess somebody who might have, I'd go with Lauren before 2001, Wynne, or Melissa Ribaudo as likely suspects. Those are wild guesses. there was a reason the question was a special bonus question...

right number (Though I think Paul wore #8 for most of his career), wrong idol or position.

Seems like Cori Alexander got one in a quarterfinal at UCLA. Or maybe it was just a penalty kick foul.

Just a PK... and a yellow.

A total dive, BTW, as Zerboni{?) later admitted.

You guys are on the wrong track. I said her idol played the same position, I didn't say it was soccer.


Spoiler:
She also played second base for a coed baseball team until the eighth grade, when she gave up the sport. But baseball stays close to her heart and is on her uniform. She wears No. 12, the number her favorite player, second baseman Roberto Alomar, wore as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays.

No guesses on the Dog?

I'll throw in bonus points for identifying her other pet

Maybe we need something easier for warmups.

4) Name the players on the Famous "real Futbol" banner that was on the warehouse next to I5 downtown and later on the back of Merlo Field.

5) Tiffeny Milbrett wore more than one number as a UP player. can you list them ?

Ahhhhh, of course. Rolling Eyes In my defense, I actually thought 16 was correct. Six reds was a wild guess, although I could not actually recall ever witnessing one of our women getting sent off at Merlo.

I'll try answering all the questions you list this time.

4) Almost the entire team, if not the entire team, was on the banner. Now I'd love to see somebody list them left to right. . .

5) No I can not.

I know I at least got one of your questions right. Wink

This is most awesome trivia, Geezer. The pairing of tall, powerful Christine with a teeny Pomeranian is excellent.
4- Players I recall from the big banner were Michelle E and Ellie. That leaves about 6 more and I am guessing three of them were Kendra, Janelle and Megan S.

1. Nutmeg (Dog) & Casey (cat)

3. #12 after her favorite baseball player, second baseman Roberto Aloma
4. Emily Michaelson, Michelle Enyeart, Michele Scifo, Megan Rapinoe, Angie Woznuk (Kerr), Rachael Rapinoe, Kendra Chandhoke, Kelli Cronkrite, Natalie Budge

Great job!!




Right on one of the Milbrett numbers. She wore 15. She also wears that now in the wps.

What's the other?

(she wore 16 for the National Team, but not as a Pilot)
