The answer about the NFL coach brothers facing each other in the Super bowl only mentions one of the two - the way the question is written the answer should be John & Jim Harbaugh.

The dream team question is confusing. Laetner did play in the nba (timberwolves) even though not at the time of the dream team. The question should be which member of the dream team was a college player

Satchel Paige was not the first former Negro League player to inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He was the first PITCHER, but Jackie Robinson was elected long before Paige was, and Jackie played in the Negro League before he became a Dodger.
