Manchester United : Soccer
Hull KR : rugby
Pittsburgh Steelers : football
It depends on what you think NYMets mean to baseball. I think they are overrated, so
NY Mets:Baseball::Dallas Cowboys:Football
These type of questions are often difficult and I always used to get them wrong due to too much lateral thinking!
The teacher might be thinking of
teams moving in 2009 so the other pair is another team moving in 2009.
or thinking a another pair founded in 1962
or another pair that has won the world series twice.
or another team that is three words
see what I mean!
I agree with Dr Russ....the perceived relationship of the NY Mets and Baseball affects the answer greatly.
How about this...
NY Mets: Baseball :: Maria Callas: Opera
That could be the answer if you think the NY Mets is the greatest thing that ever happened to baseball...(I am a longtime Callas fan).
NY Mets: Baseball :: Pele: soccer
Univ. of Kentucky : Basketball
Andrew Lloyd Weber : theatre
