A few posts ago in the comments section one of our staff members made an outlandish claim: Matt stated that he was a Cubs fan and a Brewers fan. This offended every sensibility that T-Pain had and he declared somewhat of a war on Matt. T-Pain could not comprehend how someone could have their 2 favorite teams reside in the same division. He felt this betrayed a good baseball knowledge. In his own defense, Matt claimed that he was a proud Brewers fan before they transferred to the National League and that he should be grandfathered in.
How can we prove that Matt was a Brewers fan when the Cerveceros were in the AL?
The other writers and i have compiled a quiz that should settle the score. The scoring will be completely subjective and I will serve as the administrator of the quiz. In order to obtain the most accurate results, we must use a Gentleman's Agreement with Matt. Matt must promise not to use any Internet sources to find these answers. As I have known him since we were 10, I feel as though I have a strong grasp on the questions Matt does and does not know. If I suspect any cheating on his part sanctions will be brought upon him.
Without further ado, THE QUIZ (I also implore everyone to attempt to take The Quiz. I will leave a scoring key in the comments section in a few days. Let's all test our knowledge of the Brewers)
