that's the one I knew the quickest so far.
I've read his biography. Mad at myself for missing that.
What is the only split MVP in MLB history? Name the year and recipients. (ANSWERED: 1979, Willie Stargell/Keith Hernandez)
Who is the only NBA player to win Finals MVP in a losing effort, and in what year did he do it? (ANSWERED: 1969 Jerry West)
Who is the only rookie to win the NFL MVP award, and in what year did he do it?
Dammit, I knew the Stargell/Hernandez one. Saw my first game in Three Rivers in 1979.
For 3, I’m going Earl Campbell.
3. Jim Brown, 1957
DING DING DING
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.
Meant poor paul
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.
We’ll do half point for both

My man shot 30% He's almost 3% worse than anyone else. He led the league in scoring once with a 25.9%
Edit: damn 25% year was in a different league
Ozzie Smith was a great guess.

1. I was going to guess that long one at the US Open but seems I'm wrong.
3. Youngest medal winner?
1. Wimbledon, Isner / Mahut 2010 haha too late. Watched that one over the span of 3 days

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.
3. I’m going to guess only Olympiad to win in summer and Winter Olympics
Really thought it was 8 at the Travelers this year but I must misremember it due to going to the event.
