16. In soccer, an attacking player (number 13) on team B didn't sleep well last night, and he's very tired. He's so tired that he curls up on the field near the corner arc and falls asleep in an offside position. A few minutes later, play returns to Team A's side of the field. A goal is scored, but the parents on Team A are screaming about an offside call. Do you make one? (1)
17. In which year did the NFL go to a two-division format, with each division winner playing for the NFL Championship? (1)

16.Assuming that you are the ref, no, there is no offside penalty. Despite the fact that the player is in an offside position, he is not involved in active play, unless the ball touches him as it enters the goal, which I doubt occured. The goal is good, and the parents should shutup, they don't know enough about socer/football to make calls. That's what you're for.

21. Oh geez. Uh, its the '27 Yankees, so Ruth and Gerhig are obvious. I know Combs and Lazzeri were there then as well. Definitly read in some book about a guy named Meusel hitting behind Gerhig. Definitely saw Koenig when I looked up how to spell Meusel's name. Hurr Durr

EP: You're missing 2 people (check your positions); you have 6/8.

M_H got it right.
