This month’s Trivia Challenge is a match the brothers game. On the left is the name of a famous person, and on the right is his (maybe) not so famous brother. So call up your lifelines and come up with your final answers as you take part in:

The Rules

Each question has only one correct answer. The answers are stored in a hermetically sealed envelope guarded by a playful Siamese cat named “Bonnet” who lives in our house.

This Month’s CD Recommendation

Two Against Nature” reunites Walter Becker and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. Impeccably played and flawless to a fault, the nine catch ditties almost succeed. Although the disturbing “Cousin Dupree” and the pleasant enough “What A Shame About Me” get most of the publicity, the whole album is Steely Dan at its studio best—not a beat out of place, with stellar sidemen playing carefully crafted tunes. My favorite track is “Negative Girl,” where at least Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting) gets the drums right. It’s not “Katy Lied” or “AJA,” but it’s Steely Dan all the way. A must for fans, “Two Against Nature” will require repeated listening for skeptics before they get it, if they ever do.

I was reading through your Sibiling Trivia Challenge 6.08 and noticed that you have misspelled Satchel Paige's name. I agree that your trivia contests are for fun. However, if your goal is to educate the public, you may wish to spell players' names correctly. The proper spelling would help your contestants to research accurately. Sincerely,
Rachael Kepner

Regarding the answer to last month's number 3 question, your dates are off. Elston Howard and Sandy Koufax got it in 1963, not 1964. Ken Boyer and Brooks Robinson won in 1964.

Cookie won the award in 1962, not 1964.

Jim Brown, and Y.A. Title won in 1963, as did Lance Alworth and Clem Daniels.

Johnny Unitas and Lenny Moore won the award in 1964 and Ginio Cappelleti won it for the AFL.

Oscar won it for the 1963-64 season.
