I dunno, I'd tend to think a "Canadian Sports Trivia" quiz, would logically and justifiably include references to the defending NBA champion Raptors, or to NBA Hall of Famer Steve Nash, or to the Blue Jays' back-to-back World Series championships in 1992 & 1993.

I spelled Belichick as Bilichek... and even googled it to make sure I was spelling it right, and for some reason my spelling came up in the results. :P This quiz was hard enough for a non-sports fan without google betraying me too.
