Beach volley quiz

  • When, during a SUI/USA beach volley game, you hear Born in the USA, does it come from an American supporter who thinks it’s a patriotic song or from a Swiss fan who knows its not?

  • Which one of the Laciga brothers do you prefer, Martin “Apollo 8” Laciga or Paul “French Fries” Laciga?

  • Can you guess the reason behind these nicknames? Hint: today’s date.

Update (April 20, 2005): Since it’s been a while since I posted this, I’d better explain the nicknames before I forget why I invented them. So on that day’s SUI/USA game, Martin “Apollo 8” kept serving the ball in orbit while Paul “French Fries” tirelessly tried to smash it through the net.

Do not meddle in the affairs of Coding Ninjas, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
