Taking a quizzical look at Orioles

Making it through Christmas yesterday during a cream cheese shortage goes down as another victory and proves again that nothing can stop me from living my best life.

I also can't be deterred from assigning a quiz on a Sunday morning.

You can treat it like the socks and underwear that someone gift-wrapped and left under the tree. Or the one chocolate candy in the sampler box that is filled with jelly.

If you choose to take the quiz - and you can't spit it out - this would be a good time to get started. I don't have all day.

Good luck.
