    MULTI-SPORT: TEAM NAMESThere are 9 teams in the four major American sports (NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB) whose nickname does not end in an 's.'  (e.g. Vikings is not one of the 9).  How many can you name?I don't really have a way to correct this since it isn't multiple choice, but I thought it was a neat question.  Honor system: Type the number that you can think of.  So if you think of 3, just type the number 3.  You'll get points for the question if you can think of 5 or more.
