    • SCRUMMAGE – THE OPEN SPORTS QUIZ THE FINALS
    •  Dry 18 questions 10 points per correct answer Infinite Bounce
    • • The short-sleeved, loosely-knit cotton shirts with an unstarched, flat, protruding collar, a buttoned placket, and a longer shirt-tail in back than in front got the name X from the fact that they were made initially for use in a particular sport and made their debut in a 1926 edition of an event pertaining to that sport. X gradually came to be known as Y, because of their popularity in another sport which had earlier employed thick long-sleeved buttoned- down shirts made out of Oxford cotton. The name Y was further popularised by a brand Z that was launched in 1967. However, life came full circle for everyone in 2005 when Z became intimately involved with the same premier event that gave rise to the name X.• X,Y and Z please.
    • X – Tennis Shirt (launched by Rene Lacoste) Y – Polo ShirtZ – Polo Ralph Lauren, official outfitter of the US Open (and Wimbledon, since 2006)
    • • While he was training for the 1960 Olympics, X became friends with Kirk Douglas. Around the same time, Stanley Kubrick was looking for someone to play the role of Draba (in Spartacus), the Ethiopian gladiator who defeats Spartacus but refuses to kill him. X was recommended for the role by Douglas, went to read for it and got the part. This was when the AAU stepped in and said that if X featured in Spartacus, he would be considered a pro and therefore be ineligible to compete in the Olympics. X dropped the idea and went on to win a Gold in 1960. He later appeared in a number of movies though, the most prominent ones being Licence to Kill and Channing.• Identify X.
    •  X speaking about an infamous incident involving X and Y: “Not a day goes by without someone somewhere mentioning the < blanked out > incident to me. Y and I were playing in the game against Queensland during the Ashes tour of Australia in 1990-91. We were both out by lunch on the second day. I had managed to score a hundred and was feeling quite pleased with myself. At lunch I overheard Y talking to Allan Lamb, saying he was going to < blanked out > . I said I would join him and off we went. It was a bit of fun and we were gone from the ground for about 20 minutes. I was fined £1000 and never played for England again - even though my last innings was 132.The crime didnt fit the punishment” Identify X andY. What did they do?
    •  John Morris and David Gower They flew a Tiger Moth above the Carrara Oval They dipped down into the ground moments after Robin Smith completed his hundred and Allan Lamb, who knew who was in them, playfully pretended to shoot them down with his bat.
    • • Alan Greenspan served as the 13th Chairman of the US Federal Reserve and was one of the prime implicated in the 2007 subprime mortgage crisis. In a 2008 congressional testimony, Greenspan admitted fault in opposing regulation of derivatives and acknowledged that financial institutions didnt protect shareholders and investments as well as he expected. During the testimony, Rep. John Yarmuth called Greenspan “one of the 3 X’s”, referring to an infamous 1986 incident which epitomized the Curse of the Bambino and made X a scapegoat among the fans despite accumulating over 2,700 hits in his twenty-year career.• Who is X?
    •  The first edition happened in 1951 after a proposal at the 1948 Summer Olympics by Muhammed Taher Pasha, chairman of the Egyptian Olympic Committee. 23 countries participate in the event as of 2012 (including Andorra, San Marino and Serbia) and the next edition is scheduled to take place in 2013 in Mersin, Turkey. Which event?
    •  X is a variety of bowling popular in parts of Europe, Australia and the United States. It is the precursor of modern day versions like ten-pin bowling and five-pin bowling. The objective of the game is to use the ball to knock over the Xs, either specific ones or all of them, depending upon the variant of Xs. The game is traditionally played on a lawn, but can also be played indoors in a bowling alley. The word X, however, is more popular to us in a cricketing context. What is X? Image in the next slide.
    • SkittleSkittle out – To dismiss the opposition cheaply
    •  What connects? - Glenn McGrath bowling an underarm delivery to Kyle Mills in the first ever T20 match between Aus and NZ - Fanie de Villiers being denied an LBW by David Shepherd in the 1994 Headingley test - The 30 December 1995 match between Glasgow Rangers and Hibernians featuring Paul Gascoigne
    • • Pot Black was a knock-out/round robin snooker tournament thought up by David Attenborough and aided the transformation of snooker from a minority sport in the 1960s into one of the most popular sports in the UK by the mid 1980s. The first edition happened in 1969 and the game always ended by potting the black ball. The show was described as a breath of fresh air by none other than Steve Davis.• What prompted Attenborough to commission the tournament in the first place?
    • The advent of Colour BroadcastingThe multi-coloured balls were ideal for showing off the advantages of colour broadcasting“Steve is going for the pink ball - and for those of youwho are watching in black and white, the pink is next to the green”
    • • X - “We picked it up from the Jensens (Luke and Murphy Jensen) actually. They played with so much energy, we idolised those guys. Then we came on tour and the older guys hated it, these two rookies doing it, not showing them respect”.• Y – “I played with Venus in the mixed at Wimbledon one year and one time after we won a point she did come flying in to do it. I was quite scared, actually”• X (while partnering Katarina Srebotnik) lost 7-5, 6-4 to Y (and Samantha Stosur) in the 2008 Wimbledon Mixed Doubles finals.• What is IT?
    • Why the elephant? What cricketing achievement wouldIndians remember this match for?
    •  Ajit Wadekar speaking: "We needed some 100-odd runs on the last day for Indias first-ever Test win against England in England. I had just come back to the dressing room after having a little bit of knock before going out to bat with Dilip Sardesai when our manager, Hemu Adhikari, drew my attention to an elephant going around the ground with a smartly dressed lady guiding her. We found out later that the elephant was called Bella. Adhikari said it was a good omen, considering it was Ganesh Chaturthi. I went out to bat on my overnight score of 45 with my hopes doubled, and was run out first ball! As I came back to the pavilion, I prayed to Lord Ganesha, imploring him to make the victory possible, having raised our hopes with his appearance that morning. The rest is history"
    •  Till 1998, all Commonwealth Games logos had been in red, white and blue to reflect the colours of the British Union Flag. The colour yellow made its debut at the 1998 games. This was necessitated by the fact that the inspiration for the logo had yellow as an integral colour. So, what inspired the 1998 Games’ logo?
    •  Daniel Baumat, representing Omega received an order from FIG, an international sporting body for a set of a scoreboards before a 1976 event. Baumat asked FIG officials if they wanted what Omega had or a board with enhanced capability so as to satisfy a theoretical concept. He was told by the FIG officials that there was no scope of this concept manifesting, so they would take what Omega already had. How did this come back to bite the FIG?
    •  What was this particular routine from the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony a tribute to? Close-up in the next slide.
    • Who?What was special about the manner in which the victory was achieved?
    •  The practice started with the 5th edition of the Super Bowl in 1971, which was won by the Baltimore Colts over the Dallas Cowboys 16-13. Bob Moore, historian for the Kansas City Chiefs, credits the idea to none other than Lamar Hunt, the late Chiefs owner and one of the godfathers of the modern NFL. The system had nothing to do with the Olympics and was adopted to avoid any confusion that could have cropped up because of the way the Super Bowl is held in a different year from the one in which most of the regular season is played. What are we talking about?
    •  The Royal Poinciana Invitational was a golf tournament that was played at Palm Beach Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida in 1961 and 1962. The 1962 edition featured 15 players including Sam Snead. The tournament was finally won by Snead by 5 strokes over Mickey Wright, making him richer by $4,500. Why is/was this victory special?
    •  In the 1934 Disney cartoon short "The Tortoise and the Hare", the tortoise is pitted against the hare in a famous race. When the hare first appears on the screen, he exits his abode with much bravado wearing a boxers robe. On the back of the robe, his name is emblazoned as X. This cartoon came out the year Y first won his only Heavyweight title, so it was hypothesised that the name X was used as a pun for the nameY. Gimme X orY. Image in the next slide.
    •  The first ever International football match between France and Nigeria happened at St. Etienne in June 2009 and ended in a 1-0 victory for the Nigerians thanks to a Joseph Akpala strike. The match, however, is more notable for a special tribute by the French football team to mark the 200th birth anniversary of a Frenchman known worldwide for something he devised in 1825 (which was a modification of an idea originally developed by Charles Barbier in response to a demand by Napoleon). Who? How did the French team pay their tributes?
