Today’s question: This Philadelphia Phillies third baseman won three MVP awards with his team. His first MVP was in 1980, the year that he helped Philadelphia to its first ever World Series victory. Another came in 1981, then again in 1986. Who is this Hall of Fame great?
Yesterday’s answer: The "Heidi Game" is a legendary event for New York Jets fans. With the Jets leading the Oakland Raiders 32-29 with about a minute of playing time remaining, NBC television executives decided to cut away from the game at 7:30 p.m. in order to show a movie called "Heidi." New York fans never saw the Raiders stage a rally to score two touchdowns. The final score was Oakland 43, New York 32. Jets fans were so furious about the "Heidi" decision that they flooded the NBC switchboards with protest calls; eventually, the NBC switchboard was knocked out of commission.
