April 3, 2009 question - Cutleriffic

It's Friday, I'm in Love
. . . with Jay Cutler
It's April 3. That's supposed to be the time I attempt to get the trivia world all excited about baseball and spring and baseball and flowers and baseball and the Cubs and the Cubs and baseball. But instead the Bears are monopolizing the part of my brain that fantasizes about sporting championships. The Bears now have a quarterback that people generally consider to be good.

Yes, he's been accused of being a whiner. True, he has diabetes management issues. And indeed, he has Blagojevichian hair. But still, he's a legitimate quarterback on a team that hasn't had one since the leather-helmet days. AND they added an all-pro offensive lineman from THE Ohio State University. That's right, we have a quarterback and an emphatic definite article. If that's not reason to celebrate than I don't know . . . no, wait . . . then you don't know what is.

However, since knowing what constitutes celebratory motivation makes for a pretty lame trivia question, I'll move on.

Today's Question
Which search-engine title yields a higher Scrabble score: Yahoo or Google? (without bonus squares)

Yesterday's Answer
And the people who knew it
Do you want to know? "Have You Ever Seen the Rain," was the A-side (do they call them A-sides?) to "Hey Tonight," both of which were rhapsodized by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Here's who knew:

Steve T (the T stands for Tonight . . . Hey!)

Congrats, way to go, you're the Obama-diggity.
