Since we're now needing to put up a new Hamsterdam every day, I thought I'd give myself or Mexican't a bit of a crutch to fall back on when a good topic doesn't come to mind quickly. From here on out, if I'm doing a Hamsterdam on a Tuesday I endeavor to make it Hamsterdam: Tuesday Trivia Time.
Since I'm making this up on the fly, I have no idea what types of questions will be in here, but I'd suspect I'll try to make at least one of them Hawkeye-related and try to have at least 3 fun trivia questions for you. And the only rule is no cheating/googling, because that just ruins the fun and nobody likes a fun-wrecker. So here we go. HTTT The First:
1) Name the ten players to win a Heisman trophy since Carson Palmer stole it from Brad Banks in 2002.
2) The Chris Street Award has been presented annually since 1993 to "a Hawkeye player who best exemplifies the spirit, enthusiasm, and intensity of Chris Street". Only two players have won it multiple times, one of them twice and one of them 3 times (over the course of 6 years, hint). Name the two gentlemen.
3) Of the top 10 highest-grossing Tom Cruise fims, numbers 1,3,4 & 6 are Mission Impossible movies (stupid international box office skewing things). You should be able to name the other 6 as they all made at least $250M. Go!
As a friendly reminder from a past Hamsterdam, if you want to waste a few hours, check out the best-ever Simpsons Trivia Quiz.
Happy Hamsterdamming, all
