    Sorry we're late. Play or don't. I'll check back in every so often and update the answers.

    1. Who played in the SECOND college football game?

    2. The American Football League ceased to exist after the 1969 season, when it merged into the NFL. Who was the last player who played in an AFL regular-season game to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl? (not 100 percent certain on this, but I'd have to be proven wrong).

    3. Who is the Cincinnati Reds' all-time leader in GDPs?

    4. This major-league pitcher had a 33-54 (.375) record in his first six years in the majors. For the balance of his career, he posted a 213-127 (.626) record. Who am (was?) I?
    ANSWER: Jamie Moyer.

    5. Division III football power Mt. Union has not lost back-to-back regular-season games since the 1988 season. Which teams defeated Mt. Union in successive games?



    And today's MUSICAL BONUS: Who was Roger Peterson?
    ANSWER: The pilot of the ill-fated plane carrying Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and JT "The Big Bopper" Richardson.

    Buddy Holly's pilot on 2/3/59.
    That was, I believe, the day the music died.

    (in the interest of full disclosure, I looked up the date to be sure)

    Someday I'll get you, Moddy, but not today. I've been the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, it's a cool place.

    How about, Buster Powell was one of two saxaphone players in what somewhat famous Richmond-area cover band in the early 1970s?

    Zeke is correct, it's Jamie Moyer. On eof the more underplayed amazing stories of the past 15 years of MLB.

    And Tony Perez is incorrect.
