    We've been too long away from the board. Time to try Wednesday Evening Trivia, with the questions being from a smattering of categories. Best of luck.

    1. Three Montreal Expos pitchers had 40-save seasons in each league during their careers. They are:
    ANSWERS: Jeff Reardon, John Wetteland and Ugi Urbina.

    2. The highest-charting song of this semi-famous band was also the theme song for a 1990s television show. Name the band, the song and the show.
    ANSWER: The BoDeans "Closer to Free,", the theme from Party of Five, hit No. 3 in 1996.

    3. As always a West Wing question. A two-parter, actually. What was Jed Bartlet's specific and concise reason for keeping John Hoynes on the ticket for his re-election campaign? And why did Sam Seaborn specifically recommend Will Bailey to Toby Ziegler? Both are four-word answers.
    ANSWER: Doc gets this.

    4. These quarterbacks threw touchdown passes for eight NFL teams. Who are they?
    ANSWER: Vinny Testaverde, Chris Chandler.

    5. Who had 45 saves for a 64-win team?
    ANSWER: Bryan Harvey, 45 for the 1993 Marlins.

    MUSICAL BONUS: Who were Jerry Burgan, Michael Stewart, Beverly Bivens, Peter Fullerton and Bob Jones? (there's a subtle hint there).
    ANSWER: When you wake up this morning, they'll be on your mind. The We Five.
  2. 3. Because I might die. He's one of us.

  5. Is #2 the Replacements, I'll Be There For You and Friends?

    1) Wetteland, Reardon, Lee Smith
    2) Big Star, That '70s Show, blanking on the name of the song (and I believe it was performed by Cheap Trick for the show)
    3) dunno
    4) dunno
    5) Guy on the Marlins, um um um um um um -- Bryan Harvey?

    I thought it was "Because I could die." But close enough. No. 2 is spot on.

    Bryan Harvey is correct.

    Music Bonus: ELO?

    Total guess. Think the ELO drummer was named Bev.

    2. The group was from Minnesota, I think.

    2. Rembrandts?

    Think at least one of them is from here. "Just the Way it Is" was much better IMO.

    1. Ugie Urbina

    4. Steve DeBerg?

    Ugie Urbina is the third Expo.

    Steve DeBerg is incorrect.

    The Rembrandts "I'll be there for you" reached No. 17 on the Billboard charts. But they are not the group and it is not the song I was thinking of. This song reached No. 3, and the band was far better than the Rembrandts.
