Additional info: Viking Stavanger (question 11) is a football team. For our US pipsqueaks: soccer.  :P

It would be a shame if he didn't win it.  ;D

CTG's calculation seems to be more accurate.  :)

Btw, Alan, please check your PM - from your answers, it's clear that there was also another question which you didn't understand. You can change that tip if you want to.
