STARTER - THIS WILL MAYBE ABSOLVE ME OF NEEDING TO WRITE A SUPER BOWL QUESTION:??

Add the numeric designation of this year's Super Bowl to the numeric designation of the US Congress which has just commenced, divide by the number of regular season games that each big league baseball team in 1960 played (or was supposed to play), and multiply by Maurice "The Rocket" RIchard's uniform number for Les Canadiens.(who retired in 1960)

What do you get?

7! (That's with SteelersFan's help. We're guessing.)

The first stuff has to add up to 154, since it can't possibly add up to 308.

So the answer is the Rocket's number.

Which I think is 9

That's how we figured it too. Except we think Richard's number is 7. :mrgreen:

43 + 111 = 154

154 / 154 = 1

1 X 9 = 9.

(I am slightly parodying the mental calculation questions from Des Chiffres et Des Lettres, which I have quoted a couple of times.).

Congrats TLITF.

Not a problem Kay, all things considered.

But stay for the humor of our wrong answers

43 + 111 is all I got, so I'll make up the rest

154 and 13

13!
