The Sporcle Thread

Postby TheHammer24 on Tue Nov 23, 2010 5:10 pm

I am sure some other on here play it. So lets discuss each others' scores.

This puzzle is probably my greatest accomplishment relative to others. I am not very good at the game.

I missed Milwaukee and Memphis. I last-minute scrambled to get all of the NBA teams so my score could have been much lower. I should have gotten Milwaukee because my methodology was to go divisionally and the Brewers play with the Pirates. Anaheim is an NHL TEAM! But, I actually got them when I typed while doing the AL West.

59. boom. in fairness, the browser crashed halfway through the first time so it's possible on second entry I may have gotten some faster, but I still had a couple mins left so I think I would have gotten them anyway.

Yeah, I was going through having the other 4 team towns and couldn't figure I was missing Detroit. It was certainly one of those "Duh" moments when it was revealed!

The ultimate quiz to weed out all the bandwagoners. If you don't score 100% on this you must leave LGP forever.

a fun quiz, but a bit flawed. they never really define "suck". hell, we sucked in october. and there seem to be some people from crosby's rookie season, but crosby himself isn't listed. but still fun to come up with some of those old, regrettable, forgettable names...

Spoiler:
i got 45, but the only one that upset me that i missed was surovy.

i got 42... but that quiz, as froggy mentioned is up for debate, as it doesn't define, "suck". is it by year? is it by whatever the creator felt like they sucked? because crosby's rookie year they sucked but he's not on there.

Yeah - guys like Buchberger, Wilson, Toms, etc. didn't show up on that one... and guys like Lang, who weren't around past 00-01, are on it.

Here's a more complete one, defined by time and not by talent:

http://www.sporcle.com/games/Cweg2107/00_10penguins

[all] 184 players/HCs for the Pens from the 00-01 to 09-10 seasons. I did 157 not cheating.
Spoiler:
this one includes the Pens having messed up a goaltender's name last season, and is missing at least Matt Murley
