What was the last decade in which Cher did not have a #1-charting single?
Known as the Goddess of Pop, Cher is a music legend. Back in 2011 her single “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” hit number one, nabbing that record of consecutive decades. Her 1965 single “I Got You Babe” started the streak. She has drifted up and down the charts over the years as her musical style evolved, making the streak even more improbable. (source)

What year were field lights installed at Wrigley Field for the first time?
Wrigley renovations are all the talk these days as rooftop owners argue to defend their businesses that rely on the Cubs’ product. Neighborhood residents also give their two cents on seemingly everything the Cubs try to do. It’s interesting to remember that just even in the 80s the idea of night games at Wrigley Field had some fans emphatically angry. Night games are now a staple at Wrigley, with more than ever being scheduled under Ricketts ownership. Buy Chicago Cubs Tickets here
Which is the only 2014 Lollapalooza headliner that hasn’t performed at Lolla before?
- Calvin Harris
- Kings of Leon
Arctic Monkeys and Skrillex, the last two headliners this year, have also performed at Lolla; both performed in 2011 and Arctic Monkeys also did 2009. Calvin Harris did 2012, Kings of Leon did 2009 as a headliner, 2007, and even 2003 when Lolla was still only a touring alternative rock festival. Eminem headlined in 2011 for his only appearance. Also, Arctic Monkeys, Calvin Harris, and Skrillex all did Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza Brazil in 2012. (source) Buy Lollapalooza 2014 Tickets here
Which Chicago baseball player didn’t make the 2013 MLB All-Star Game roster?
- Jesse Crain
- Chris Sale
- Travis Wood
- Starlin Castro
Young lefty Travis Wood had a breakout season on the North Side, while ace Chris Sale had a dominant season matched by very few. Jesse Crain was the best reliever in baseball for the first half of last season as well, a rare non-closer to make an All-Star Game. But Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro had a down year, missing what would have been his third straight Midsummer Classic. Buy Chicago Cubs Tickets here Buy Chicago White Sox Tickets here
