Another quizzical look at the Orioles

Schools are open with remote classrooms, which should make it easier for you to take today’s quiz.

Except it’s much harder to cheat off the person next to you. I can’t fix that part.

Also, I waited again until the weekend to pass out a quiz because I’m a real jerk.
