RANDOM THURSDAY POP QUIZ: PART DEUX


OK, so far the trivia we've thrown has been a couple softballs. Try this on for size you baboons:

Q: What do Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, John Wooden and Joan of Arc all have in common?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Ken for correctly nailing this trivia question, although he cheated. And hat's off to the other three for their truly valiant efforts.

A. All of their nicknames include a location associated with them.

Ali: "Louisville Lip"
Mantle: "Commerce Comet"
Wooden: "Wizard of Westwood"
Joan: Uh, go look it up

All canonized by the Catholic Church. Gotta say the Mick was a surprise on that one.

Nicknames all have locations in them.
