St. Valentine must’ve been a nifty guy to start the tradition of giving cards to loved ones on his birthday. Or flying around and shooting people with arrows to fall in love. Come to think of it, Valentine’s Day might be the holiday that people know the least about its origin. In fact, there are more than one St. Valentine. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and I’ll give you a kiss. Unless you’re a dude. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

How many St. Valentines are there?

The Giants went down the Canyon of Heroes for the second time in four years on Tuesday. While nowadays this honor is reserved mainly for Championship teams (sorry Jets), in the past it’s held celebrations for Presidents, returning war heroes, foreign dignitaries, and even Albert Einstein. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and I’ll dump some ticker tape on your head. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What was the last non-sports Canyon of Heroes parade?

We’re days away from the Rematch of the Century, so why not spend some more time reminiscing about the past? Super Bowl XLII was a battle of attrition. After the Patriots scored a touchdown on the first play of the second quarter, neither team scored until the final frame. That’s not to say the game didn’t have its share of big plays. That brings us to the Question of the Week. Get it right and a Gatorade shower is in your future. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What was the longest play of Super Bowl XLII? (and a hint: it’s not what you think)

It’s the Rematch of the Century. Giants vs. Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Before we whoop on those pathetic Bostonians once again, let’s look back and remember the first affair. Who could forget the Helmet Catch and Plaxico cradling the Title-winning pass in the end zone? Ahhhhhhhhh, memories. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and Michael Strahan won’t sit on you. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

Which player scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl XLII? (and a hint: it was not Jeff Feagles)

Now that Heidi Klum has said auf Wiedersehen to Seal, maybe she’ll come to party in The Suite. She has the looks, but I don’t know about the kids. At least she has money. Heidi made $20 million last year, according to Forbes. I’d babysit a couple of poop machines for that. Heidi wasn’t the highest-grossing model in 2011, though. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and Seal will serenade you. He probably needs something to do. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

Who was the highest-earning model of 2011? (and a hint: it was not Janice Dickinson)

Trivia Time: NFL Playoffs

It’s fucking freezing outside, which means we’re in the heart of the NFL Playoffs. The NFL Champion used to be determined by the team with the best record in the regular season. In 1932, the Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans (now the Detroit Lions) finished the season tied and played a single game for the Title. Due to bad weather, the game was played indoors at Chicago Stadium on an 80-yard dirt field. No, I’m not making this up. The Bears won 9-0 and the game was so popular that a Championship Game was played in 1933 and every year since. The playoffs have evolved a lot since then but one thing never changes: Champions save their best for the playoffs. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and you get the game ball. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

Who is the all-time NFL Playoff touchdown leader? (and a hint: it is not Ickey Woods)

It’s been almost a year since we kicked things off here in The Suite and it’s been a huge success, at least bigger than LeBron in Miami. It’s been a thrill hating on jabronis and entertaining the millions (aaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnddddddd millions). That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and Phanatic will let you drink champagne off her rack. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What was the most-viewed Rainman Suite post in 2011?
