Round 12 -- Tuesday, September 12

Tough job for me as I seem to be following Gatsby in asking questions

I am a BIG sports fan and just didn't want to pass up this opportunity to post a few questions on the US Open Tennis championships that ended in New York on Sunday with Roger Federer (Switzerland) and Maria Sharapova (Russia) winning the singles titles.

I still have hordes of "India" based questions, to which I will get back in my subsequent rounds, but for this round:

1. Name a Russian woman who featured in the singles main draw (not qualifying rounds) of this year's US open.

2. Name a US player who figured in the Men's singles main draw (not qualifying rounds) of this year's US open.

3. The 2006 Championships saw quite a few seeded players bow out in the first round itself. Name a seeded player (men or women) who lost in the first round of this year's US Open. You have 7 men and 4 women to choose from

4. Name a non-American man who won the US Open singles title during the last 30 years.

5. Name a non-American woman who won the US open singles title in last 30 years.

Let me know if you need some help. I hope to see many enthusiastic responses The round stays open till next Monday!

2. In 1980 Vanessa played Fánia Fenelon (a woman in the ungodly position to be forced to play "lovely" music as her associates were marched off to die at Auschwitz) in the TV film "Playing For Time". It was a fact-based story. Kindly name one of Fenelon's fellow musicians in 'The Girl Orchestra of Auschwitz' (the actual women).

It has been a while since I have passed on my annoying observations so here are two or three:
1) No one wanted to cry out loud for 10 points from Meat Loaf,
2) American politics found no friends in television, everyone's enthusiasm was curbed for one particular show, and The Office must have reminded everyone of work.
3) Cuban coffee does not appear to be popular.

As long as I have calculated them correctly (would I ever make a mistake?....no, no, no, please do not send me a list) here are the results:

40 points - Bethfay and Physalius
35 points - Glamel, Ren, Gatsby, Srini, and Denni
30 points - Engadine, Maggie and Cinnom0n
25 points - Gemini

Thank you to all that played this round and congratulations to the winners, Bethfay and Physalius, Ren's envelope never turned up again (she must have forgotten where to send it ) and Gemini went from first to last (but not least ) in the blink of an eye.

I have rambled on enough so will go now and hope to see everyone back next time.

Oh dear! I'm rather late with this lot - it should have been posted on Thursday, but better late than never...

Trivia Round 14
Newport's Famous Transporter Bridge celebrated its hundredth birthday on Tuesday. All these questions are therefore bridge related.

1) While there are only four basic types of bridge, there are variations on each. Give me the name of one of the variations.

2) Name a track from the 'Bridge over Troubled Water' album by Simon and Garfunkel.

3) There was an album by The Nice in the seventies entitled 'Five Bridges' which was based on the bridges across the river Tyne in Newcastle. There are more than five now - can you give me the name of any of the bridges across the river Tyne? (Not just in Newcastle).

4) Mrs Bridges was the cook in the popular British drama series of the 1970's, 'Upstairs, Downstairs'. Can you please give me the name of one of the other servants who worked with her below stairs at 165 Eaton Place?


5) And if you think I've gone too far with the bridges theme - can you please give me the name of one of the actors in the 1977 film 'A Bridge Too Far'.

Sorry for the late arrival of these questions. I shall leave the round open until Thursday. Just give me a shout if you need help!

Round 18 Monday

Well, I got to thinking about a movie I don't even like that much (but have still seen a dozen+ times ): Animal House from 1978. Which led to these:

1. Tim Matheson played Eric 'Otter' Stratton in the film ~ he was also the voice of the original "Jonny Quest", an animated adventure that appeared on TV in 1964. Besides Jonny himself, please tell me another character from that short-lived (but pretty cool) cartoon series who appeared in three episodes or more.
2. Stephen Furst was Kent 'Flounder' Dorfman in Animal House -- flounder is a tasty flatfish, of course. One of the largest markets selling fresh fish in the world is the "Tsukiji Market" in Tokyo. It is serviced by 7 wholesalers. Pick one of them!
3. Peter Riegert played Donald 'Boon' Schoenstein in the crazy flick, which put me in mind, rather speedily, of US frontiersman Daniel Boone. The historical Boone had a good many children as time passed. Can you kindly give me the first name of one of his offspring?
4. Tim Hulce was given the role of Larry 'Pinto' Kroger. Hulce is likely best remembered for his portrayal of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the highly regarded Amadeus in 1984. This time I need to know the name of one of Mozart's operas (there are over 20 to pick from).
5. And, finally, the popular favorite John Belushi played John 'Bluto' Blutarsky. The name Bluto is familiar as Popeye's nemesis for decades. Popeye was created by Elzie Crisler Segar in 1929 and proved so popular that The National Cartoonist Society issues an award named after him. Please choose a recipient of the 'Elzie Segar Award' from 1984 to the present.

If you run into any problems don't hesitate to contact me! This'll close early Friday. 'Til then...

Edited to fix typos - yikes, every time I check I find another one! Sorry, folks ...
