    Is the musical bonus Ventura Boulevard?

    Yes it is.

    Slow response tonight. Either the questions are hard, or everybody is watching the final chapters of the Dan Hawkins' era at Colorado.

    No. 5 -- Should be a trick question, but the answer is Wisconsin.

    This Jays fan will have a crack at 4 and say it was their first-ever All Star, Ron Fairly.

    As I recall Fairly was also the first guy to play for both the Jays and Expos.

    3. "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs. A trick question, because the record never actually hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 (it peaked at No. 2) but still managed to top the year-end list.

    Huggy, you're right again about Ron Fairly, who was an expansion Expo as well as a first-year Blue Jay.

    Is No. 1 Carlos Beltran?

    And I'll guess Bobby Bonds for No. 2.
