Three-quarters of respondents chose the football game. • There were no domestic cats in North America until they arrived with voyagers from Europe. • You've probably noticed that St. Pauli Girl beer has on its label the image of a buxom blond beauty. You probably aren't aware, however, that the beer was named after the St. Pauli neighborhood of Hamburg, Germany -- a notorious red-light district.
