I once won some friends a beer by having a random trivia on demand.  Shortly after SB50, I was with some friends at a bar trivia night.  The last question was to name the three QBs who have started in the SB for multiple teams (note before anyone says it:  this was well prior to four months ago).  Everyone else in the bar got 2, I managed to pull all three and we won the contest (this was just a question in there) by one.

In case it's ever relevant to someone here:  Franco Harris and Lynn Swann won SB MVP in consecutive years and share a birthday (month and day at least). 

I don't know the answer to the quarterback question, but I'm guessing:
Craig Morton

Kurt Warner

Peyton Manning 

Tom Brady

Can't name three quarterbacks or the three who have started the Super Bowl for multiple teams?  At the time of the trivia event I described earlier, the three were Craig Morton, Kurt Warner, and Peyton Manning.   The first of those three I think was the deciding point.

Sorry, I answered before I read down this far.

For most of my life, Craig Morton was the answer to this question: "Who is the ONLY quarterback to start for 2 different teams in the SuperBowl?" Then Kurt Warner did it... and so on.

Did U Know June 6th (today's date), but in 1944 was D Day?

That’s considered common knowledge, isn’t it? Especially in the west?

Did you know the invasion was originally planned for June 5th, 1944?

Actually, I did not know that. Interesting! Quite an invasion and sacrifice to take control at Normandy.

    • In order for something to change in that regard, one of the teams will have to be the first to relinquish the setup duties. I doubt either team will want to be the first lower their advantage by giving up that control, so I think it will continue to persist like this. I don't see Europe wanting to give up control of the setup in Rome especially after how well France went when they controlled the setup and how they will be seeking revenge from this most recent loss.  I also don't see the US wanting to give up control of Bethpage, because at that point they'd either be going for 3 straight, or coming off of a loss in Rome.  Also, home fans play a pretty significant role in other team sports, think like loud noise in football stadiums or basketball arenas, so I don't mind the home fans adding an advantage for the home team as long as they don't cross the line.
    • Is anyone else a little concerned that the Ryder Cup has too big of an advantage for the home team? Except for Medinah, the home team has won every Ryder Cup since 2006. Is that just a fluke or is something going on there? I'm wondering if the combination of home fans plus controlling the set up makes it so the away team doesn't have much of a chance at winning, even when they're better. Rome might be different, because Italians don't really care that much of about golf. But I think it's tough to see Europe winning in the US anytime soon. Bethpage could be really ugly in 2025, both in score and in fan behavior.
    • Great pic, it's crazy how flattened the greens look when watching on TV. I have seen a couple pics similar to yours of other greens there and the undulations look so much more severe than how they appeared on TV.

    • Uhm… no. Just a terrible take by you here.
