Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #38

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #38 puzzle:

Week #38
Category:Sports
Difficulty:Hard
Clue:These two sports heroes would one day have a bunch in common, although they probably didn’t know it when they were playing
Answer:Joe Namath &
Don Drysdale
In perhaps the most obscure reference of the entire contest, we have here the two athletes that guest starred on The Brady Bunch. Don Drysdale, who gave Greg pitching tips, and Joe Namath, who Bobby faked illness to meet. Why is my brain filled with this nonsense?

The winner this week was nobody! But kudos to Mike & Hilary for at least venturing a guess…

After thirty-eight weeks, the standings are as follows:

Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #36

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #36 puzzle:

Week #36
Category:Music
Difficulty:Medium
Clue:These two guys think about Labor Day all year long
Answer:Jon Bon Jovi &
Bruce Springsteen
If you’re from New Jersey (and I am), no two people represent Labor Day any better than Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. These two multi-millionaires have spent the last few decades getting on stages and convincing you that they represent the American working man. Not a bad gig if you can get it…

The winner this week was Mike!
