UTPT 2018 Sports Quiz Finals

  1. 1. Varun Krishnamurthy Memorial GAME THEORY
  2. 2. Nicknames WrittenRound
  3. 3. Rules • 9 Questions • ID both player and the nickname • +5 for each question • No parts applicable • +5 bonus if all correct
  4. 4. Q1 Since X used to practice a lot during the night after his duty hours, he used to wait for the moon to come out so that the visibility in the field (during his era there were no flood lights) improved. He was hence called Y by his fellow players, as his practice sessions at night invariably coincided with the coming out of the moon. ID X.
  5. 5. Q2 X has a self-appointed moniker, Y, with several layers of meaning; apart from his association with his famously-cold homeland, he is widely considered to have a cool temperament under pressure and also a cold persona with most other drivers, team members and the media. ID X.
  6. 6. Q3 Only 19, the law at the time stated that X had to have a legal guardian sign his baseball contract in order for him to play professionally. As a result, Dunn became X's legal guardian, leading teammates to jokingly call X "Dunn's new Y." The joke stuck, and X quickly earned the nickname "Y" X. Give Y or its popular Italian translation.
  7. 7. Q4 X started his trademark Y in 2009 after being too lazy. His Y has appeared in songs and on T-shirts. The X Illustrated project, by designer Filip Peraić, is about illustrating the Y profile of X in a variety of styles and techniques. It's hard to not recognize this basketball player.
  8. 8. Q5 X's nickname Y, which features on his shirt, dates back to his childhood. It was first given to him by his grandparents, due to a resemblance to the character from X's favourite Japanese cartoon programme as a child. The footballer has a tattoo on the inside of his right arm inscribed that transliterates roughly to YX in the Latin script.
  9. 9. Q6 The name was given to him in college by a sportswriter covering his alma mater, Louisiana Tech for "delivering" match winning performances. Like a X delivers, he used to “deliver” regularly. It referred to his performances on the court, game in and game out.
  10. 10. Q7 X has the habit of placing bet on greyhound racing and that is the reason behind his nickname. He recently told a website that he enjoys the "vice" (which is ironic as he liked playing something else his entire career). X even owns greyhounds. "Another vice for me away from cricket, to give me some enjoyment. I've been involved in greyhound racing for over 20 years now, I really enjoy it and once cricket is finished I'll be able to become more involved," X was quoted as saying.
  11. 11. Q8 Since dominating the 500 cc category, the Y has become the nickname of choice for X. Two theories prevail as to why X uses the Y. One is that X adopted the nickname upon having earned a degree, which in Italy entitles one to use the title Y. Another, as spoken by Graziano himself, "The Y because, I don't think there is a particular reason, but it's beautiful, and is important, the Y. And in Italy, Y is a name you give to someone for respect, it's very important, the Y... important."
  12. 12. Q9 A boy with a carefree attitude, he was smaller than other kids his age, with his sister Rosa noticing he was as small as a little bird she started calling him Y, the north-eastern name for the wren, a little brown bird. The name stuck and by the age of four years, long before football fame, he was known as X to his family and friends.

  104. 104. Tie breaker Golf asks players to do things like mark their own ball on the putting green, but the rules know better than to trust them to do it honestly; the LPGA's rules are such that if a player marks her ball in a way that gives her an undue advantage, she's penalized two strokes. If she signs a scorecard attesting that she didn't do that when in fact she did, she's penalized two more; that last penalty is a reduction from the old standard, which was immediate disqualification. All of this will become important. 22-year-old American star Lexi Thompson seemed very much on her way to a win at the ANA Inspiration open in Rancho Mirage, California. Before she reached the tee on the 13th hole, though, a LPGA official informed her that her four-stroke lead over So Yeon Ryu had become a one-stroke deficit. The reason for this was that, while putting her ball down on the green after marking her putt during play on Saturday, Thompson had minutely and apparently inadvertently moved the ball slightly closer to the cup. The officials assessed the penalty one day later, why after one day?
