As always, top four answers on the board. Scoring goes 40-30-20-10, with a 200 being a perfect score. (By the way, our favorite thing in the world growing up was during the real Family Feud, when Ray Combs was the host, and it was the big bonus round at the end where they brought two people on and they had to reach 200 points combined to win the huge money. Every once in a great while, the first person would top the 200-point threshold on their own, and the whole family — minus person number two — would go nuts. Then Ray Combs would shush everyone, bring out the other person, tell them they needed an insane number of points to win, and then ask them completely wacky/bogus questions before finally relenting. We rooted for that to happen every single time. We think we saw it happen twice). Oh, and if you are interested in the post-Feud life for Ray Combs … well, let’s just say things took a turn for the worse. On that note, we’re playing the Feud!
1) Within 10 percent, how likely is it that the Bulls will pull out a Game 7 victory in Boston?
2) There are 140 games left in the Twins’ season. How many, within 10, will Joe Mauer catch?
3) The Gophers football team has landed a home-and-home series with Texas. Within 10 percent, what percentage of fans — perhaps even some of the same ones who ripped the team for having a soft schedule — will now complain that Tim Brewster has fashioned too tough of a non-conference schedule?
4) What is the percent likelihood, within 5 percent, that we will ever know the complete story of Alex Rodriguez?
5) Scott Baker and Francisco Liriano are a combined 0-7 with a 7.33 ERA. How many combined victories, within three, will this highly regarded duo have at the end of the season?
Fasola-link! Wiener dog races.
P.S. Though the above image might seem key words from a couple of Joker’s stories, we have no reason to believe they aren’t actual Family Feud bonus round answers.
