Biswa/Kishore,

First of all, I must apologise for not contributing to the blog proactively. I have been unbelievably busy over the last few days. Hope I will be able to post regularly once I am back to Cal and add some value to the portal.
Anyway, here are my answers. (Another extremely difficult quiz. So tough that I could not even make educated guesses for most of them. Looks like many of them are about American Sports. It would be better for people like me, if you could provide us with enough hints with each question when the question is about a sport that is very difficult to have regular access to (e.g american football)through magazines and papers. Anyway, answers:

2. Both nicknamed A-Rod?
5. Vijay Singh
9. Robin Jackman
