Here’s a review of the questions:
- In 1976, the Reds became the first and only team to have a perfect postseason since the League Championship Series was started in 1969. Who was the World Series MVP that year?
- In 1936, this two-story Tudor-Revival house was built in Green Township on the West Side. It still boasts the original, hand-painted rathskeller murals by Mathias Noheimer that celebrate Cincinnati’s German heritage. What’s the name of this house and who was the original owner?
- The Bengals have not won a Playoff game since 1991. Fans think this is because of a curse. What incident do they think brought on the curse?
And here are the answers:
- Johnny Bench—Bench was the leader of the Big Red Machine that dominated in the 1970s. He is also the only catcher in history to lead the league in home runs. ESPN has called him the greatest catcher in baseball history.
- The Bappert house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, was built for Joseph Bappert (an upper-level executive at Kroger) and his wife, Cecilia. The 4,300-sq. ft. home is located at 1550 Neeb Road
- On Jan. 13, 1991, Bengals linebacker Kevin Walker tackled LA Raiders running back Bo Jackson. The injury Jackson sustained ended his career. Many believe this was the beginning of a team curse.
