In the 1990s the Posse never really saved many of its challenge line calls, mostly because they took calls to entertain themselves. This year’s theme spurred many creative scripts aping current commercials of the day and pitches for products that are uniquely trivia. It would also be the year that The Goat Posse got its name.
I can borrowed from a Gatorade Superbowl commercial a few weeks earlier, and served as a catharsis for Captain F.’s sorrow over a Green Bay loss in the big game. KV Be was a brilliant script, composed by Dude and Robin, who also delivered the lines. Uncle Corn Beanie Baby was inspired by several things, but they are just to horrible to describe. The year was rounded out with a Top Ten list regarding a randomly selected hour. It would seem that the Posse was the only group that got they joke that there was not significance to Hour 43.

Captain F. saw his football hero Brett Favre in a Nike commercial before the Super Bowl that year, which was an ensemble of sports figures inspirationally saying “I Can”. Trivia is full of inspiration and The Posse felt it had to be fully expressed.

Uncle Corn is another seminal figure in KVSC lore. It was Uncle Corn that witnessed an encounter with a father and his young son that gave birth to the legend of the KVSC mascot “Corn”. His large presence even was referred to in this year’s I Can skit. The Uncle Corn Beanie Baby was a fictional doll that draws its roots from this year’s theme and 1997’s challenge Uncle Corn’s Underwear.
