Q4 - THEY DIDNT LOVE THE GUVNOR...

B - Ant thus, today Illinois has a new Governor, who happens to have the same name as a famous --

1 - Ballroom Dancer
2 - Hockey Coach
3 - Cardinal (of the Church, of course...)
4 - Radio Personality

G - This has nothing to do with Illinois. But "Kiwi" is a nice short name. According to the experts (at CJAD trivia show last Sunday), and not otherwise checked by me, how many seeds are said to be in the average kiwi fruit??

(Plus or minus a third of their answer, for full points)

Hockey coach. The hockey Pat Quinn came up with the Leafs in the fall of 1967 as a defenceman, after the team's legendary geriatric Stanley Cup victory that spring. And he has been at the top ranks of players and coaches ever since.

Now, I am going to go with the radio guys -- this was on a "stump the hosts" type segment, with the first person calling in enthusiastically posing the kiwi question, and the host batting it right back with the alleged right answer:

1500.

21-13 for G.

I know. That's why I put a sclamation point.


And why I don't ask SteelersFan the answers before I post mine. Because he might know them!

He usually knows the sports. Sorta surprised he never heard of Pat Quinn, hockey coach.
