A little secret: this very random grab bag isn't so random. Every answer here is one of my favorites in its category (keep in mind, especially for the presidents, favorite does not equal best). That's how it got to be an answer on the quiz.
All over Sporcle you can find quizzes that people base solely off their opinion, and usually those are just lists, where you are supposed to read the quiz maker's mind, without receiving any useful hints. Hopefully, on account of what I hope to be the quality of the hints/clues in this quiz, I have bucked the trend of bad personal opinion quizzes. Or, to be more precise, have shown you my tastes in various categories while still making a decent quiz.
Look at it this way: if I hadn't made this comment, what would you think of the quiz?
Sep 24th, 2010 at 04:22 GMT
I typed "Bullets" for the 1978 NBA championship team, I think you should accept that as well. By the way, you have very good taste in pro sports teams!
Sep 24th, 2010 at 05:02 GMT
Same idea as Bullets, accept Expos as well, considering you mention their relocation I typed in the original team name first.
Sep 24th, 2010 at 05:06 GMT
I was going to say the same thing Mattl1216 said.

This would have been a good quiz except for the comedians, which as I think the results show, nobody knows. (I should have gotten Cosby; the others are impossible. I've literally never heard of the other three guys.) Also, I was a little surprised there were three Washington teams (especially since it'd make more sense if it were all of them and a theme). So when it turns out these are just your favorite teams, I mean, who cares, it just makes you look lame. Then when it turns out your favorite baseball team is the Yankees despite your obviously being from the DC area, you just lose all credibility. I think I speak for everyone when I say that anyone who likes the teams in their area, except in baseball where they like the Yankees, should never be taken seriously on anything. I'm surprised you haven't changed your basketball team to the Heat yet.

Technically the Washington Wizards have never won an NBA title, like mdkid2012 said it was the Baltimore Bullets that won the 1978 NBA championship.
Comment below threshold:

Any reason why you will you will only accept "yankovic" as a correct response. It seems pretty asinine to not accept "wierd al", "wierd al yankovic", "al yankovic", or his real name "alfred matthew".
Sep 24th, 2010 at 11:24 GMT
It does accept "weird al" but you have to spell it right.
Sep 24th, 2010 at 13:31 GMT
wow terry, someones angry. U've never heard of mitch hedberg!? or gabriel iglesias??? Do u have tv or are u living under a rock. This was a good random quiz and its a different to have an opinion quiz thats actually trivial rather then just a list. good job. @thestorm, really dude? really???
Sep 24th, 2010 at 13:56 GMT
Well Terry, you dont speak for anyone but yourself, and, prior to 2005, DC had no team for over 30 years. So, assuming the quizmaker is between the ages of 5 and 39, which is extraordinarily likely, he would have grown up with no local team. So he should what? Just not like baseball?
Sep 24th, 2010 at 14:52 GMT
I don't think I've ever seen a starker difference between the ratings and the comments on a quiz of mine. The comments are mostly supportive. But people who aren't commenting seem to have ignored the final sentence of my comment and rated the quiz down. But that's ok.
@TerryM, if you must know, my dad was born in Rochester, NY, so I've always been partial to his teams too. I root for Washington over New York (in all sports) when given the chance. I will concede that the sports section on the quiz is where my favoritism overrides the randomness of the quiz. But otherwise, the subjects of the quiz really are quite random, I think. And the comedians may be hard, but you should check them out, maybe you'll laugh.
Oh, and to the people asking me to accept Bullets and Expos, I have now done so (even though I never rooted for a team called the Expos). The Bullets were in Washington at the time, however, @imfeelingwet.
Sep 24th, 2010 at 15:09 GMT
I applaud your effort, intent, and taste in comedians, 5/5. But where's the love for the Caps?
Sep 24th, 2010 at 19:46 GMT
Terry, maybe the reason you didn't get any of the comedians is because you clearly have no sense of humor. Lighten up, bro. Also, I like this quiz--excellent selection of movies, TV music, and comedians. Any quiz that features my favorite band (The Who) and one of my favorite TV shows (Fresh Prince) gets an automatic 5.
Sep 24th, 2010 at 23:09 GMT
@RC_Cola Thank you for your comment and the 5/5. I just never really got into hockey. Not sure why, although hockey's relative lack of TV exposure probably didn't help. However, to make it fairer, maybe I should give each league one team, and if I were an NHL fan, I would be a Caps fan.
@ablackperson, Thanks for the support. And, just because I feel like striking up the conversation, what's your favorite Who track?
Sep 25th, 2010 at 04:14 GMT
Perhaps accept Upwords instead of Scrabble? I immediately thought of Upwords, and they both fit those criteria.
Sep 25th, 2010 at 20:24 GMT
For those coming late to the game, I just changed the sports section to make it a little fairer. I also did accept Upwords, despite my never having played it, again for fairness.

@hscer: As overplayed as it is, "Won't Get Fooled Again" rules pretty hard. :)

People either love Mitch Hedberg or they hate him. Or they think he's okay.
