Tossups (10 points each)

1) Bought by a grain merchant in 1932, it was combined with another team and renamed as
part of a plan to get rid of a rival league. This new team won its first playoff series over the
Montreal Maroons, but lost in their first finals series against Chicago. In one of their earlier
finals appearances they began the tradition of skating around the ice with the Stanley Cup, and
they also have a tradition that started when a fish market owner threw an octopus onto the ice,
whose 8 legs were symbolic of the 8 games needed to win the Cup at that time. FTP, name this
NHL team, known for their “Production Line” of the „40s and „50s featuring Gordie Howe, who
as a #1 seed lost in the opening round of the 2006 playoffs to the Edmonton Oilers.
Detroit Red Wings

2) They will soon give up their usual attire for black combat gear with hearts and red
crosses, and they have also worn outfits that made them resemble a giant heart rate
monitor. Invited by David Bowie to play at the 2002 Meltdown festival in London and open for
him on his Reality Tour, they have produced three different albums with three different record
companies. Inspired by such groups as Electric Light Orchestra, membership of this Dallas-based
group has varied between 13 and 27. FTP, name this “choral symphonic rock” group, often
mistaken for a religious cult because of the white robes that they typically wear, who heavily
contributed to the soundtracks of the movies Thumbsucker and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind.
The Polyphonic Spree

3) Preparation instructions include: Mix in a shaker with ice cubes, then pour into a chilled
glass. Garnish and serve. It is typically served straight up in a cocktail glass, and the primary
alcohol is vodka, although sometimes rum is substituted. The next ingredient is triple-sec, and
most recipes specify Cointreau. Finally comes the namesake ingredient of, FTP, what drink,
which can be made with liqueur, juice, or cider, and is often served with a slice as garnish.
Appletini

4) TV executives originally thought that this would be a huge flop, due to many technical
problems such as poorly mixed sound, choppy animation, as well as the inexperience of
many of the voice actors and the absence of a laugh track. However, when it aired in 1965, half
of the TVs in the U.S. were tuned in. The show was originally sponsored by Coca-Cola, but all
references were edited out in subsequent versions. A 2001 making-of documentary hosted by
Whoopi Goldberg revealed that the writer refused to cut a scene that emphasizes the show‟s
theme, despite the network‟s objections to the extensive religious content. Featuring a director‟s
search for meaning, his best friend‟s first prize in a decorating contest, a little girl‟s request for
money, and a now famous soundtrack by jazz composer Vince Guaraldi, this is, for ten points,
what holiday special with Snoopy and the Peanuts gang?
A Charlie Brown Christmas
5) The name’s the same. The title of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer graphic novel, an episode of
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” that takes place in Portugal, a series of documentaries by
Lawrence Blair, an anthology of short stories by Eric Flint, a movie about the boxer Emile
Griffith, a drinking game involving cards laid out in a circle, a weekly radio program hosted by

phrase, the name of a song and album by Johnny Cash and a region in the Pacific Ocean prone to

6) The daughter of an FBI agent, this “theater geek” was forced to move around often as a
child. While getting her degree in drama at UCLA she was noticed by James Woods, and
early roles included guest spots on “Growing Pains” and the part of Lorraine, “like the quiche.”
She has broken away from her strict Catholic upbringing, much to the chagrin of her parents,
even appearing nude in a movie about the porn industry. FTP, name this actress, best known for
playing Rollergirl in Boogie Nights, and Felicity Shagwell in The Spy Who Shagged Me.
Heather Graham

7) When brought to the US, the first word was changed due to fears that vandals would
turn it into an “F.” Ronald Regan reportedly sent a letter to an 8 year-old boy congratulating
him on his worldwide high score. Due to a bug in the system, the last level is unplayable because
the right side of the screen becomes garbled with letters. This game has created large sales of
merchandise, and even inspired a TV show (of course with its own Christmas special) and a Top
40 pop single, a parody of “Cat Scratch Fever.” FTP, name this popular video game, whose hero
spends most of his time running away from Clyde, Winky, Blinky and Inky and eating pellets.
Pac Man

8) This graduate of Northwestern was a member of the First All-Children’s Theater in New
York and the Greenwich Shakespeare Company in England. The daughter of a New York
State Assemblyman, she spent three years as a Hollywood Square and beat out David Cross to be

intends to get a doctorate degree. One took the singer Brandy to his senior prom; the other is
friends with the WWE‟s Kane. Accusations have included those of “unprofessionalism,”
“childlike selfishness,” and “buying love.” At one point they tried to put their squabbles behind
them, with the elder even referring to the younger as his “idol.” In their first head-to-head
meeting the elder‟s team won by one point in overtime, although the younger had almost twice
the points. FTP, name these two players who have been involved in this feud, teammates on the
LA Lakers from 1996-2004.
Shaquille O‟Neal and Kobe Bryant
10) Along with his brother, he likes to hear stories about robots with the same names as
them, though this also frightens them. He finds it difficult to apply lessons taught to sheep
to his own life. A family trip had to be cut short because he got zesty Italian in his eye. He and
his brother play games like Good Samaritan and Billy Graham‟s Bible Blaster. He got a pogo
stick for imagination Christmas; his brother got a hula hoop. A newspaper headline proclaims
that he smells, and he questions if the journalist‟s source is reliable. One time at a restaurant, he
yelled, “Ow, my freakin‟ ears!” after his mother tried to protect him from language that his father
would expect at Denny‟s. FTP, name this character, the son of Maude and Ned and brother of
Rod, neighbor of the Simpsons.
Todd Flanders

11) Born on Christmas day as Florian Cloud, this performer celebrated an “official”
birthday on June 25. Like many of us, her first musical instrument was a recorder, but
unlike most of us, she entered London‟s Guildhall School of Music at the age of 6, and she has
also learnt to play the piano, violin, and guitar. She wrote the Britney Spears song, “I‟m Not a
Girl, Not yet a Woman,” for which she received the Golden Raspberry award for worst song of
2003, though her album released the same year was #1 in much of Europe and in the top 4 in the
U.S. When she performed at Live 8 in London in 2005, she was introduced by Bill Gates, and
her latest album has been delayed due to the death of her father. FTP, name this singer, who
shares her name with a famous Carthaginian Queen, whose song “Thank You” was sampled by
Eminem.
Dido

12) Its writer was the business manager for the Lyceum Theatre in London, and its main
character’s mannerisms were inspired by his boss, Henry Irving. It is written in an epistolary
form, featuring themes of immigration, post-colonialism, and repressed sexuality. It has seen
many theatrical and film adaptations over the years and has been referenced in hundreds of
others. The director of one of the first film versions was sued by the author‟s estate, forcing them
to change the name. Although a fictional story, its author did perform much research into
European history and folklore. Name this novel, whose title character has been played by Gary
Oldman, Leslie Nielsen, and Bela Lugosi.
Dracula

13) This Canada-native, son of a sergeant in the Canadian army, quit high school during
his senior year, which he admits was a “stupid youthful mistake,” although he has received
an honorary diploma from John Dewey high school in New York, and got his G.E.D. in 1995. He
taught himself to play guitar at the age of 8, and his middle name is actually Andrew. His first
acting role was in the show “Leo and Me,” and he actually only got the role that made him a star
because Matthew Broderick declined it, and he also obtained the role for which he is best known
for similar reasons. FTP, name this actor, who stopped acting full-time in 2000 for medical
reasons, best known for portraying Mike Flaherty, Alex Keaton, and Marty McFly.
Michael J. Fox

14) A reference to a break from manager Lou Pearlman and RCA, it was featured in both
X-2: X-Men United and Crossroads. According to Simon Cowell, it was supposed to be
performed by British band 5ive, but they decided they didn‟t like it much. It debuted at #42 on
the Billboard Hot 100 before rising to the top ten, where it stayed for 12 weeks, peaking at #4. Its
video features a chase on top of a train, a road race with a red Dodge Viper, and a big pair of
scissors wielded by a sexy, dangerous woman. What is, FTP, the first single off Nsync‟s second
album, No Strings Attached?
Bye Bye Bye

15) Although his rich uncle J.P. Grosse owned the theater, he typically was a “gofer”
backstage during productions. Early on he used his family connections to make
unreasonable demands on his uncle‟s behalf, although later on he became the main character‟s
assistant. His character has been performed by Richard Hunt, Adam Hunt, and Rickey Boyd. In
the Christmas movie it was revealed that if Kermit had never been born, he would have been a
cage dancer, and he was also the manager of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem in another
movie. FTP, who is this Jim Henson character, who was made a computer whiz and given a twin
sister on “Muppet Babies”?
Scooter

16) This Winnepeg native ran away from home after being expelled from junior high. He
lost his first match in ten seconds and began his career as a jobber in the AWA. He has been
involved in countless feuds throughout his career, many fueled by his own interview segment. In
the cartoon series “Hulk Hogan‟s Rock ‟n Wrestling,” he is the leader of the evil wrestling
group, and he was also referenced in the episode of “The Simpsons” where Homer is accused of
sexual harassment. He uttered the infamous line “I‟ve come here to chew bubblegum and kick
ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum” from They Live. FTP, name this wrestler, the #1 worst
offender of WWE magazine, known for his kilt and bagpipe entrance music, who got his
nickname due to his “Scottish rage.”
“Rowdy” Roddy Piper

17) This show popularized the expression “packing the magnet,” something similar to
“jumping the shark.” John Travolta’s sister plays the main character‟s mother, and Willie
Aames plays his best friend Buddy, who is a party animal. The character himself is a student at
Copeland College in New Brunswick, who lives with two different families over the course of
the show. FTP, name this „80s sitcom whose theme song is often sung by Conan O‟Brien—and
which is watched by security guard Peter Griffin as an attacker breaks into George Harrison‟s
house—written, produced by and starring Scott Baio.
Charles in Charge

18) A question is asked that does not need an answer. Instead, people are encouraged to
simply hold on. The main issue seems to be that of weight, though of what exactly is not
specified, and the speaker tells the people that they have not been forgotten. In the video we see a
man and a boy in a park, and a bloody Wayne Coyne. FTP, name the person that is being awaited
in this Flaming Lips song, also the title of a song by Goldfinger that was in the first Tony
Hawk‟s Pro Skater.
(Waitin‟ for a) Superman

19) Born in New Hampshire, of Irish, English and Cherokee descent, she became interested
in performing after seeing the musical Oklahoma! Early acting roles included voicing the
female bear cub in Dr. Dolittle 2, and in the Snowflake Day episode of Clone High she voiced a
homeless person. She was not pleased when she appeared on the cover of an issue of
Cosmopolitan, whose main headline was “Orgasms Unlimited.” She got her big break because a
FedEx worker who happened to know someone at Sony overheard her recording in a studio. She
has toured with the Backstreet Boys, and she also became a spokesperson for Neutrogena. FTP,
