Q1 - Q1 - THE GAME IS ALMOST THE SAME

Be - How many players should be on the field for each team in NFL football?

Co - How many players should be on the field for each team in Canadian (CFL) football?

(Hint -- That famous Seattle crowd could suit up as a wide receiver in Vancouver...)

11

12

This may reveal why I was thrilled to have NO sports questions during my time in the Hotseat.

And he answers are:

11 and 12 respectively. Extra player is a back or wide receiver, or defensive back. This plus unlimited movement before scrimmage makes up for only 3 downs.

Here meanwhile, 8-6 for team Be

60 seconds is time for a non sequitur!

Sorry I missed the chat room, ladies. I was sidetracked by a phone call from a handsome young fireman in Driggs, ID.

Q2 - Q2 - THE TIME FOR EXCESS IS OVER

B - New England Patriot star defensive player Rodney Harrison has admitted to using this substance in an attempt
to heal from severe football injuries more rapidly:

G - In Fifth Business by Robertson Davies, lead female character Liselotte Vitzliputzli suffers from acromegaly,
one of the syndromes, including gigantism, which can be caused by tumors of the pituitary gland, producing this substance.

I guess SPOILERS should now be used.

Christie -- did I tell you how much I admire your quilting skills? Your design sense and use of color are wonderful.

I have several quilts made by both my grandmothers, and by two of my great-grands. Also one by my ex's grandmother. Pieced and applique. They are used on a limited basis, but most definitely not just folded away and forgotten. I've made three, myself -- one cross-stitch, and two pieced. I really admire the time and effort you put into your art.

Ditto. My sis in law is a wonderful quilter. I have three of hers, two she made for the boys I've appropriated until I think they'll take care of them.

All is well. He had to tell me about his first "multiple victim extraction" after a head-on crash. He had to squeeze through an impossibly small opening to reach one person, but he did it. They got everyone to the hospital alive.
