I thought I knew a lot but boy was I wrong. And I am way over 50.

7. I got 2/11
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 05:27 PM by JonLP24
I got the first one right because from standardized testing, whenever they have a "All of the above" or "none of the above" answer, that is usually the correct answer as most questions don't have that as an answer. The other I got right was Roberto Clemente.

I can't figure out why "I don't know" is a correct answer.

9. You gotta see the bit.
I never liked Abbott and Costello. They drove me nuts watching them. And I particularly hate the "Who's on First" skit. But for reasons that totally escape me, it has become a "baseball classic".

12. Motorcycle
I just guessed it by process of elimination. The other answers didn't make much sense.

8. Got 9 right..
I guessed on a couple though. I missed on the Yankee manager during Larsen's perfect game and one other.
