Let's kick back with a few easy conundrums this weekend.
For those who have noted the Beatles theme within the last couple of weeks here, that is because Sir Paul McCartney was recently presented the Gershwin Prize for Popular Music. So now that enough time has passed since PBS aired the taped ceremony, the question is: Who did Sir Paul team up with during the concert after being presented the honor?
THE FIFTY/FIFTY CHANCE
Just like a regular trivia question, but there are only two possible answers, hence the even odds of getting it right. Ready?
True or False: There really is/was a Betty Crocker?
We'll present the results next weekend. But for now, let's peek inside THE ANSWERS BOX and solve last weekend's Puzzle Corner.
George Harrison was the former Beatle in The Travelling Wilburys. He was joined by Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, and Bob Dylan.
WHICH IS OLDER?
The Boston Red Sox or the New York Yankees?
In all honesty, it's a question of how you look at it.
Both teams started playing baseball in 1901.
Although Boston has been their home since Day One, between 1901-1907 the team was known as the Red STOCKINGS. They did not officially become known as the BOSTON RED SOX until 1908, when club owners realized the longer name was difficult to put in newspaper headlines.
Meanwhile, the other team spent the first two years of their franchise history as the original Baltimore Orioles BEFORE moving to New York and becoming the Yankees in 1903!
