Trivia question time - LSUtoOmaha
Debated whether to put this on the OT or the Political Talk board, but I thought this would be the better audience. 1st rule: Don't cheat. 2nd rule: See first. Here is the question: This internationally significant couple were featured on the cover of Time Magazine in 1937 and named "Ma...

Why is TV coverage of golf Majors not comprehensive? - LSUtoOmaha
I would think for instance, some channel (ESPN, network channel, etc) would willingly broadcast the Masters before 2PM on Thursday and Friday. What is the reasoning behind the spotty coverage, especially in the early rounds?...

Should Ken Gurnick have his MLB Hall of Fame vote revoked? - LSUtoOmaha
For the most recent class, he left off [b]Maddux[/b], Bagwell, Biggio, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, [b]Glavine[/b], Jeff Kent, Piazza, Thomas. And he only voted for one player, Jack Morris, who had a career 3.9 ERA when hitters sucked. [quote]Morris has flaws -- a 3.90 ERA, for example. But h...

Need help understanding baseball rookie contracts - LSUtoOmaha
I understand a large component of a coveted rookie contract is upfront money. Take Kevin Gausman last year for instance, whose contract "includes a 4.32 signing bonus." So as I understand it, Gausman gets $4.32 million unless he violates terms of the agreement. Is this depreciated over the lengt...

Challenging a call in tennis question - LSUtoOmaha
If I am not mistaken, in the Wimbeldon final Sunday, Federer served a ball that was ruled out by the official. Federer challenged, however, and the camera showed the ball was in. Federer got credited with an ace. Are all serve challenges awarded an ace in this scenario? What if the ball went in ...

Why do payment slots exist for each position in the NFL? - LSUtoOmaha
I realize this is an obvious question for most. Why can't a team just have a salary cap and divide up the money how they want? Is this purely for franchise tag purposes?...

Roth IRA early distribution: Principal subject to 10% tax before 5 years? - LSUtoOmaha
I was told by my online broker that, if you take an early withdrawal of the principal in a Roth IRA, you are subject to a 10 percent penalty unless a certain time period elapsed. Is that correct? I checked the IRS website and saw the five-year amount listed. The internet opinions regarding this ...

Time to discuss the Monty Hall problem (strategy and game show) - LSUtoOmaha
[quote]The Monty Hall problem is a brain teaser, in the form of a probability puzzle (Gruber, Krauss and others), loosely based on the American television game show Let's Make a Deal and named after its original host, Monty Hall. The problem was originally posed in a letter by Steve Selvin to the Am...

If someone tries to get into your car, can you hold them at gunpoint? - LSUtoOmaha
Say this is in Louisiana, and at the time you have reasonable suspicion to believe the person is getting into your car to steal it. Can you point a gun at them to make them leave or do you have to just yell and call the police about a hijacking? Two scenarios: 1. The car is parked and nobody ...

Coaches voluntarily switching teams in Professional Sports - LSUtoOmaha
I was discussing this topic a few days ago with some friends, and we struggled to come up with good examples. I think the Red Sox manager was hired away from the Blue Jays last year, but other than that, I could not think of a coach who willingly left his pro team for another (Doc Rivers would not c...

The "turning 5k into 10k" thread got me thinking about this type of side venture. What opportunities have you explored in the past that involved purchasing items for the sole sake of selling them at a higher price, and by what means? Mine has been tickets (jumping quickly on high-end concerts/sp...
