    Your mission, should you choose to complete it -- name every team in the four major U.S. team sports. You have 12 minutes before the web page self-destructs (or at least stops you from trying any longer).

    I got 110 of 122. Only one I'm truly ashamed of forgetting. How about you?

    NFL, MLB, NBA and MLS?

    (Kidding, hockey fans. Don't drop your gloves.)

    115. Pretty disappointed about two I missed. Got all the NFL and MLB, all but one NBA and all but six NHL.

    Man, that's a bitch. Got 112 out of 122. Got all of the NHL and all but one of the NBA.

    Figured I'd sweep it, but I only got 115.
    Got all the MLB and NFL, missed 4 NBA and 3 NHL.

    Had I typed in "Kings," my score would have been much better.

    I only got 88, it's hard to really imagine what you are missing.

    I was missing 7 hockey, 3 MLB, 12 NBA (not really a fan) and somehow I brainfarted on the NFL and only got 20/32, missing some of the most obvious such as the Cowboys, Steelers and Redskins.

    I love Sporcle, even though it repeatedly exposes my ignorance.

    I did this quiz a couple of days ago and got no more than 100 right (NHL killed me). It's amazing how your might can go blank when its pressed for that kind of information.

    Got 93.

    Missed two baseball (Colorado and the Gnats, sorry Moddy).

    It's harder than you think since its alphabetical and not listed by division.

    I got 102, and missed two local teams.
    I started by naming all the baseball teams, then thought it would be easier to do it by city, listing all the Bostons, Atlantas, etc. I never went back to LA and missed the Lakers and Clippers. Doh.

    114. Perfect on NFL and NHL; butchered the NBA and missed a couple easy ones on the MLB list.
