    Honestly should split it with wes tegg. I didn't know it was Brown but knew his rookie year was 1957 so guessed that after he said it was Brown.

    However Jake wants to address is fine. I know a previous point was given by giving a half decade instead of exact year though. Half point probably makes most sense since DBL admits he didn’t know the player but the year and I knew the player straight away.

    2. I’m gonna guess 10 since it seems 8 and 12 are wrong

    3. I’m gonna guess most medals won without gold? Swimmers can usually swim in peek form for 4 Olympics if timing is right.
