For all of you out there who think you know your baseball—especially Boston Red Sox baseball—this is the quiz for you. With a tip of the BoSox cap to John Quinn and Dave Martin who know the score.
Fifteen questions. Answers follow the questions, so no peeking. A score of nine or more correct makes you a major leaguer. Below that you are in the minors but on your way up.
Warning: there is one trick question.
And if you want to really participate, there will be Red Sox Quiz III - send in some questions and answers and perhaps they will make it into print.

(Adapted from Remembering Fernway Park)
The gang was, literally, all there on April 20, 2012. The 100th birthday bash for venerable Fenway Park was the main event--it even upstaged the game between the Yankees and Red Sox. It was a marker moment in the rivalry between the franchises, a memorable piece of history for Fenway.
Caroline Kennedy threw out the first ball just as her great-grandfafther "Honey Fitz" Kennedy had done on April 20, 1912 when the Yankees (known as the Highlanders then) and the Bostons battled. For the record, back then the BoSox eked out an extra-inning triumph.

What was to be a Christmas gift for all pro hoops fans happened on December 25th. Like Santa Claus, the NBA returned to town. But unlike Santa Claus, this Faux NBA was not as gifted and gift-giving as the real NBA.
The lockout produced a truncated, compressed National Basketball Association schedule that at times seems as it was thrown together without any concerns about game quality, player's health, fan's remorse. Perhaps Chicago's Derek Rose says it best: "Every game now seems to be like "a back-to-back game."
