I do know that Jai alai has the highest ball speeds of any sport and is illegal in the US!
There are a number of jai alai clubs on the east coast, esp. in Miami.
If your only weakness in trivial pursuit is sports, our SLS trivia team will be pretty solid (if, you know, you can turn down HLS).
Perhaps, though I was consistently put to shame by my national-quiz-bowl-champion, college-jeopardy-winning, saturday-nytimes-crossword-puzzle-in-30-minutes-solving, phd-in-musicology-at-princeton-getting friend from ugrad. Doing the crossword with him was an exercise in head nodding and "ah, ya, that works." Seriously, he would solve 5-10 words at once then write them all down.
But yes, no one around wants to do trivia with me, so SLS trivia team would kickass.
