This is an offical game clue for the 2005 season from a FIRST e-mail blast on December 30, 2004. It is documented in this thread. It has been brought into the Rumor Mill for discussion to keep the E-Mail Blast Archive in a more pure state…Any ideas?
It looks like both players accomplished their tripple plays against Cleveland.
So something with three’s and what is Cleveland famous for?
They have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, maybe there are lyrics that match this.
Was this in a FIRST email?! If so, w00t!
March 14 is National PI day… March = 3
okay, follow me here.
The IR Beacon is in the middle of the field, you cant see it, thats why you need to “Look closly”, and, maybe, there are 3 teams going at it at once…?
My mother thinks it has to do with the scoring and 3 ways and i agree.
It looks like that 3 is the lucky number this year. about time 3 is the lucky number.

Red+Blue = purple
I think its pretty clear from the shape of amethyst gems and from the triple-play clue that we are going back to the hexagon fields with 3 teams. Now for the “Pi, you, and me” part…
Could it be something with pyramids?
The Rock and Roll hall of fame is a pyramid shape if i can remember correctly and as previously posted the amethyst has a pyramid on it too. So maybe something in the middle of the field is a pyramid?
Well it has to be something invisible, cause it says “If you look closely”, thats y i assumed that it was the beacon or something.
Yes I agree. Looking into FIRST History , the astute reader will note that FIRST expects feilds to last for 5 years. The number 5 is also visible in John Neun’s user image. This year would be the current feild’s sixth if we were to keep it.
Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence.
Amethyst is in the trigonal/hexagonal crystal system which is reflected in the long prismatic, hexagonal-shaped crystal form, often with a six-sided pyramidal terminations on one end.
George H. Burns – Sept. 14, 1923
Boston first baseman George Burns turned his in the second inning against Cleveland. Burns caught Frank Brower’s line drive, tagged Walt Lutzke off first base and ran to second and slid into the bag before Riggs Stephenson could return from third base.
is there another george burns? other then baseball?
WHOOO HOO!!! Let the games begin!!
I spy with my little eye… a bunch of numbers
Amethyst = 6th anniversary stone
John Neun -(V = 5)?
George Burns (Actor)= 100 years old when he died
Pi = ~3
Something between 3, 100, and 65?
And Mike… uh… yeah. George Burns, Actor…
“I think its pretty clear from the shape of amethyst gems and from the triple-play clue that we are going back to the hexagon fields with 3 teams. Now for the “Pi, you, and me” part…”
Yes, lets go here. Another definition of Pi
What is pi? It is equal to C/d, or C/2r, where C is the circumference of any circle, and d is its diameter, and r is its radius.
How could circumference fit in?
My dad took a look at the hint and came up with Amethyst colored glasses = rose colored glasses. And its Montgomery Burns on the simpsons. George Burns is an actor.
Yes, he was a vaudeville actor. See wikipedia entry
