HAMSTERDAM: TUESDAY TRIVIA TIME

It's fucking cold. Really cold. Again. So that's the theme: Cold temps. Rules as always: any man gets caught cheating spends a night in the box. Answers contained in the links within each question if you give up and want the answer.

1) This is definitively the coldest winter in Iowa in at least 30 years, and depending on how January and February shape up it will probably be Top 5 all-time. However, the coldest temperature ever recorded in Iowa was actually in 1996, and I remembered this because it was in a town only 30 minutes away from where I was attending high school at the time: Elkader in February 1996. Take a guess at that low temperature record.

2) For the Winter Olympics, the Americans of each gender with the most medals (8 for him, 6 for her) are both in the sport of speed skating. Who are those two Americans?

3) What are the three greatest causes of American deaths from blizzards, in order?

4) The record cold for a game played in Kinnick Stadium was set this year at 16 degrees F. Who was the opponent and what was the final score?
