  1. Five out of ten on this quiz. I remember the last Latin proverb since I watched baseball games on cable television. The phrase was used by fans of the San Francisco Giants baseball team when they played their baseball games at Candlestick Park when the weather was either very windy and cold. The fans used that phrase to indicate their support for their local baseball team before they moved to A T & T Park a few years ago.
