No one likes to be stumped on a knowledge question, especially when it comes to your favorite sports team. While this may test your inner brain, it will hopefully help you in useless information when talking with friends.
I’m not trying to stump anybody…it’s the beauty of the language that I’m interested in.

SPOILER: Don’t look further to if you wish to disappoint your guess….
