    You all know the rules, so we'll dispense with the legalese.

    1. Who was the final commissioner of the American Football League?
    ANSWER: My sources say Milt Woodard succeeded Al Davis in 1966. But since you mentioned both, full credit.

    2. Of the eight original AFL franchises, which had the worst winning percentage at the time of the merger?
    ANSWER: Denver, 39-97-4 (.287).

    3. Four stadiums that have hosted Super Bowls have been demolished. They are ...
    ANSWERS: Yes, the Orange Bowl, Stanford Stadium, Tampa Stadium and Tulane Stadium. I figured Tulane Stadium would be easy so had no problem with dropping a little hint.

    4. Who scored the final point for the New Orleans Saints in Tulane Stadium?
    ANSWER: Johnny D nails the Tulane Stadium question. Bill McLard kicks the final extra point in a
    14-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Dec. 8, 1974.

    5. Two pitchers surrendered more than 200 homers in their careers with the St. Louis Cardinals. They are ...
    ANSWERS: Bob Gibson is first, with 257 HA. Bob Forsch is second at 204.

    MUSICAL BONUS: Who is Judy Kay Cohen?
    ANSWER: It is the Juicer, Juice Newton.

    Erxleben. That would be a surprising one. They used him mostly as a punter.

    And they didn't get him until about four or five years after the Superdome opened.

    My guess? Rich Szaro wasn't on the team yet, so ... Bill McClard?
