Earlier this season, Around the Foghorn’s Danny Vietti created a hugely successful San Francisco Giants fan quiz to separate the bandwagoners from the diehards. His 15-question set ranged from gimmes to head-scratchers, and included trivia from our current team and years gone by.
With the reigning champs marching toward another playoff push, there’s little doubt that the bandwagon is going to fill up with a fresh batch of fairweathers. To help save the true fans from getting lost in the shuffle, I decided to come up with my own quiz that focuses specifically on the 2015 Giants. Other than making mine multiple choice, the same rules apply.
- Do not let other people help you with the questions.
- Do not use search the Internet answers. Automatic disqualification if you do.
- Do not cheat by any other means. We don’t have computer police watching your every move, so be honest with yourself.
If you follow these rules, you will know in your heart whether or not you qualify as a diehard fan of the 2015 team.
How it’s scored:
0/10 – 2/10 answered correctly: BANDWAGONER
Take off that orange and black—you’re not worthy.
3/10–5/10 answered correctly: FAIRWEATHER
You watch a game when you can, but you still have a long ways to go.
6/10-7/10 answered correctly: AVERAGE
Not quite a diehard, but hey, maybe you have a life apart from watching baseball.
8/10-9/10 answered correctly: DIEHARD
You should be loud and proud about your allegiance. Go eat some garlic fries—you’ve earned them.
10/10 answered correctly: HARDCORE
Giants baseball can be torture, but you stick with it through the good times and the bad times…and all the other times. You’re the real deal.
I’ll re-post this scoring system with the answers at the end of the quiz. Good luck!
