12 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana September 11, 1987 Sports Rutter on Sports By DAVE RUTYER Multiple choice: here's a variation on popular Trivial Pursuit game An acquaintance who practices before the bar once told me of his favorite client, a middle-aged man facing 5-to-10 for entering a second-floor apartment with the intent of liberating stereo equipment being held against its will. The legal system, it seems, has little apprecia- tion for liberation theology and, thus, wouldn't buy the premise that the man was only doing the Lord's work. "How do you plead, guilty or not guilty," asked the judge. "You mean," said the man with as much sincerity as he could summon, "that's my only choice?" When I first developed a passing interest in Trivial Pursuit's less-popular variations, much the same thought crossed my mind. Had it not been for the multiple-choice questions, my academic career would have been even more brief -- and less spectacular if that is possible -- than the record proves it is. It always seemed to me that the great weaknesses of all forms of "TP" was that there was one right answer and no help in sifting through the multitudes of wrong answers that seemed much more logical. Seems palpably unfair if you ask me. Thus, when I journalistically assayed a previously unknown variation on "TP" in a col- umn recently, that was a flaw I was attempting to address. I must tell you that I received volumes of response from that piece. But I am never swayed by the hootings and braying from the masses and vowed to press ahead if the opportunity ever presented itself. I refused to bow to hints of physical violence. I will give you another chance to pass judg- ment on a form of "TP" which never made it to the shelves of your local emporium. It's uch like Genus, Genus II and Baby-Boomer. It's called Semi-Literate I. One more word before we begin. For some reason not clearly understood, the makers of all "TP" variations have lumped several unrelated ac- tivities under one category. For example, all "TP" variations include questions about Joe Louis and Babe Ruth in the same category as inquiries about alcoholic beverages. "Leisure" it's called. I have known people who could -- and would -- achieve athletic heights under the influence that would have caused serious bodily injury had they been cold sober.
