    Yes, I know you've been anxiously awaiting today's edition of Thursday Trivia. Or maybe not. Be that as it may (remember, Google is NOT your friend):

    1. Which NFL Hall of Famer was the first player ever signed by the New York Titans?

    2. Who holds the course record for the Par 3 Contest played at Augusta the day before The Masters?

    3. Who was the second quarterback taken in the 1983 NFL draft, behind John Elway of Stanford?

    Todd Blackledge is correct. No. 7 pick by Kansas City. Armchair QB gets it right.

    4. Who was the first US-born player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the Stanley Cup playoffs?
    Brian Leetch is correct, 1994 Rangers. Nafselon, Nafselon gets the bacon.

    5. Who was the first non-American to be the first overall selection in an NBA draft?
    Mychal Thompson 1s correct. Webster gets it right.

    Bonus question: The 1960 US Olympic men's basketball team included four future NBA Rookies of the Year, and another player who is a Hall of Famer. Name these members of the original Dream Team.

    Spnited is the man: Oscar Robertson, Jerry Lucas, Jerry West, Walt Bellamy, Terry Dischinger. Jerry West is the Hall of Famer but not ROY. The others were all ROYs.

    For Question #1, I'd guess either Wahoo McDaniel or Babe Parilli.

    I know Gay Brewer shot 20 one year for the Par 3 Contest.

    The first player to ever sign with the New York Titans was No. 13, Don Maynard. NFL Hal of Famer. The Baron gets it right.

    Art Wall (1965) and Gay Brewer (1973) each shot a 20 at the Masters Par 3 contest. Chef halves the hole.

    See you next Thursday.
