Default Trivial Questions

What do NASCAR and basketball have in common?

Steve D did not provide the correct answer.

Sorry Cliff, Brad's not the ticket.

Hint: This would apply to all participants in both sports.

Nice try Peter. No credit.

Good guess, Jim, but incorrect.

Just saw the Paul S answer and he is very close. The correct answer will be posted in the next post.

Hint: Movement is critical in the correct answer.

Raymond, your mother may be more upset with your incorrect answer than you grammar.

It may be truthful at some level, but it is not a correct answer unless I say so. Sorry, Mom.

I like it Steve, but squeaky sneakers aren’t unique to basketball and the hint referenced movement, not the lack of movement.

Peter, back to the drawing board.

They both have sponsor patches/company ads on their uniforms?

Both are more popular than lacrosse.

Participants in each perform over rubber? or wear rubber.

I may have the correct answer...just can't seem to say it in a grammatically correct sentence.

Mom would be real upset at that.

They both "travel", in the sense that NASCAR does it on a racetrack and basketball players do it on a court.

What do I win?

Frank-

I guess the best way to state my guess, which you labeled incorrect, would be that they both perform with rubber hitting the surface on which they perform.

Now, THAT's, both a grammatically correct sentence AND is A correct response...whether or not it's the one you choose or not.

Mom is looking down on this second post much more favorably regardless of the 'correctness' of the response.

When a basketball player stops, and when a driver slams on the brakes, the player's shoes, as well as the car's tires, squeek or squeal.

OK, let's go with the reverse:

When a driver hits the gas pedal, and when the player starts moving after having stood still, the tires and shoes squeek and/or squeal.

NASCAR and basketball are two sports where sitting on your butt can result in ‘traveling’.

Paul S gets honorable mention for alluding to traveling, but with no ands, ifs or butts cited.

Another trivial question is more than welcome.

The traveling paradox precipitated this thread.

When a basketball player lands on his rear end with the ball, he is guilty of “traveling”.

I maintain that such a player is guilty of “sitting”, not “traveling”.

If the basketball player were sitting in a car, like the NASCAR driver, “traveling” might be a plausible violation, but a sitting basketball player is quite stationary in reality.

In NASCAR you can go 200mph while sitting, whereas in basketball the speedometer drops to zero.

You might even say he's off a different type of grid.


I mean that as a compliment.
