I think the smallest city to have a major league sports franchise is Raleigh, North Carolina. I know the smallest city that has all 4 major leagues in it (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB) is Minneapolis/St. Paul

I will see if i can answer the questions that have not been answered

2)there are no touchbacks in CFL, the field is wider and 10 yards longer, 20 yard long endzones, 12 players

5) 'Fleet', I believe its a bank in New England

6) Chicago Bulls

7)Green Bay, WI (The Packers)

9) Denver, CO

Okay, let me try to get some more right!

2.) Expanding on DeltaRNOmd-80's answers, you have 3 downs to get a first down, and I believe you only need 7 yards to get a first.

5.) I think the sign is a Citgo sign. I believe its a fuel company. I seem to picture a sign with a big orange triangle, so I think thats it.

6.) Philidelphia 76ers.

7.) Nashville (although I also tend to agree with Green Bay.

9.) Mexico City

10.) UCONN was wrong, so I will continue to rack my brain for this answer.

number 10 definitely was UCONN, who won the mens and womens titles in the 98-99 season.

In light of this new evidence brought forth by DeltaRNOmd-80, I will stand by my original answer of UCONN, lol. Thanks.

Ok final results-

Turbo Tristar-TWA does have a 757 with the Rams logo on it, but HP has all their teams on it.

Delta-

2. Yes, they all are correct
5. Incorrect-I believe you may have been thinking of the Fleet Center, where the Celtics and Bruins play
6. Incorrect
7. Green Bay is correct
9. Incorrect-this one was real hard, but good guess

KROC-
2. 3 downs is correct-I'm fairly sure its still 10 yards for first down.
5. Correct-the famous Citgo sign
6. Correct-the 76ers lost 1 game in the playoffs back in the 80's
7. I think Green Bay is considerably smaller than Nashville
9. Incorrect
10. UCONN isn't what I was thinking of, could be right

Correct Answers

1. American Airlines, Miami and Dallas
2. 3 downs, bigger field, 12 guys, multiple men in motion in the backfield, bigger endzones, no touchbacks, no fair catches, slightly different ball, goalposts in the front of the endzone. Also I believe there is a way to score 1 point other than an extra point (any help?)
3. Toyo Carp
4. Pro Bowl
5. Citgo
6. Philadelphia 76ers
7. Green Bay
8. America West
9. Nepal, from some village at about 13,000 ft, to Everest Base Camp at 17,600 ft. In the United States, it's the Pikes Peak Marathon, which goes from somewhere outside of Colorado Springs to the summit of Pikes Peak, 14,110 ft, above sea level
10. I had in mind the UNC Tar Heels of 1993, however UCONN seems to be another answer, so I guess that one.

Thanks,
Greg

Next quiz will probably be in a week or so, topic undetermined.
