the quiz
1. Dart board, opposite #1, #19.
2. Color of a cue ball? It?s sort of egg shell, usually with blue chalk marks on it.
3. Making arrows is called, Cupid-ism.
4. What is a Sag wagon, in cycling? That?s where Mr. & Mrs. Sag watch the race.
5. What apparatus do women use? I?ve seen women vault; use a horizontal bar- what a quaint name for it; rings - yes they all want one of those; the floor exercise, oh yes on the floor is great but there should be carpet and pillows.
6. Equipment for a boxer not mentioned? A promoter who?s hair looks like he just grabbed onto a 220 volt wire.
7. Football players paint black on their cheeks to cut down on the sun?s glare and to look mean so none of the other guys get grabby in the huddle.
8. What are puck stoppers? poles on the side of the net and goalies who do not play for the Bruins.
9. In cricket, a bowler who took down three wickets got a top hat. Today in hockey it?s called the hat trick, something Boston Bruins never do.
10. The sport that has different colored balls and cold is blue balls? Steve there are women on this site and they probable don?t like it being called a sport.
11. Protection baseball players wear? Do they stuff their uniforms with 100 dollar bills?
12. Using the cool air valve in air ballooning? Sure you turn on the cool air and hold your beer very close to it, works like a charm.
13. How many red balls in snooker? You snookered me on this one, is it three or four?
14. The sport using stones and a house? Lets see, your wife gets stoned with her boyfriend and takes your house in the sport of divorce.

16. In fencing the heavier weapon in the split rail fence.
17. The rugby ball is oblong and you hurt when you carry it. Soccer balls are round and you really shouldn?t carry them, it?s bad form really.
18. The Japanese used bamboo Kendo swords, which may be the reason they lost WWII.
19. You use ?woods? in golf to hit the ball long and with loft, however this seldom occurs and regularly causes gentlemen to use bad words.
20. The center of an archery target is sort of a cherry color.
21. The color of the last hoop in croquet? At Wal-Mart their all sort of a dull steel color.
22. Officials in Football are know as Zebras because they have black and white shirts and because you get thrown out of the game if you call them what you really think.
23. Bats for playing cricket are make from aluminum trees which often grow where farmers do their dental floss farming. (It?s all the silicon in the soil.)
24. What material are the arrows made from? Well, they take a tree and cut away all the parts that aren?t an arrow.
