Did you know the swans on the Thames in Britain are the property of either the Queen, the vintners (winemakers) or the dyers (textile dyers)?
Every year, the new cygnets are marked with one or two nicks on their beaks. Those with one nick belong to the Dyers, those with two nicks belong to the Vintners, and those with no nicks belong to the Queen. This marking of the swans is called "Swan Upping" and takes place in July every year.

Only 96 more posts until 5,000 posts on this thread.  With 17+ days remaining in 2008, 6 posts a day on this thread will do it.

How about naming the 3 NFL teams to win 14 straight regular season games.  I'll start off with the 2004 Pittsburgh Steelers.  The other two are easy for you sports buffs out there.   Grin
Of course.  The 2007 New England Patriots and the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only two teams to go undefeated for an entire regular season of at least 14 games.

Very good. Now how about this one: Which country has won more UEFA championships than any other, and in what years did this country win?

'Hail, Columbia', which was also regarded as the unofficial national anthem until the 'Star-Spangled Banner' was officially made the national anthem in the '30's.

Trick question...none. When Panama was part of Columbia it was regarded as part of South America, when it won it's independence, being in Central America, it became officially a North American country, but the country of Panama was never regarded as being in South America.

Not a trick question: part of Panama is described as having won Indepndence from Spain in 1821.  The rest of Panama won its Independence from Colombia in 1903.

The unified country of Panama declared herself part of North America which led to the construction of the Panama Canal through the Isthmus of Panama.  The North American / South American border is recognized as the Panama/Colombia border.

Oops, I neglected one word, yards.  So, Marino and Manning are correct.  Add:

  • Dan Fouts
  • Ken Anderson
  • Tom Brady
  • Brett Favre
  • Warren Moon

Drew Brees would become the 8th man to lead the NFL in passing yards at least twice if his lead holds up over the final 3 games.

But part of the declaration of independence was a Spain was a declaration to united with the Republic of Colombia. 'Panama' was never recognized (or even regarded itself) as a separate independent nation at this time. Now, an argument could be made that the 'Free State of the Isthmus' which existed for a very short time in the 1840's was an independent North American nation that was reincorporated into the Republic of Columbia, but it neither existed long enough to gain international recognition nor was it the 'Republic of Panama', per se.

So, throw out the 1821 Independence.  When Panama declared independence in 1903, she declared herself part of North America and was never affiliated with South America.  The question posed during the trivia competition was factually inaccurate (regardless, my team was the only one to get it right along with Hail Columbia; although I admit, I said Columbia until my team member appended the Hail).   Grin

Name the 8 NFL QBs who have thrown more than 250 INTs during his entire career.

Top 3 are Favre, Blanda, and Hadl; I'd have to look up the others...

Name the 5 NFL players who have played in over 300 games throughout their careers.

Morton and Gary Anderson and George Blanda are easy - longest serving Kickers ever...

True or False

Are there 2 active coaches in the NFL today who have won 300 games between them?  If so, name them.

Name the 3 active NFL QBs where if 2 of them played against each other, the total career passing yards would be over 100,000.

Favre definitely; then probably Manning (Payton) and maybe Warner...

Last one before I go to bed.   Grin

Bill Walsh's assistants and their progeny have become successful head coaches in their own right.

Name those head coaches who have won more games than Bill Walsh.

Think AFC South - Favre and P. Manning are correct.

I'm sure that Holmgren has; can't think of the others.

Of course, give credit where it is due: who was Walsh an assistant for in the NFL?

Think of an active kicker and a former WR.

Walsh coached the SF 49'ers for 10 seasons, winning 92 games.

Holmgren has won the most.  There are a few others who have won more than 92 games.

Walsh got his start under Paul Brown.  Brown was the revolutionary who envisioned the power of the forward pass in football; successful in is 1-2 seasons at OSU (won a national title), and led the Browns to 9 title games in a 9 year span.

I know who Walsh is... every kid on my block knew who was the mastermind behind the West Coast offense, and one of the best GM's of his day after handing off the clipboard.
