It’s Yes/No time again ...

In case you missed it last week here’s the quick-and-dirty explanation: On Thursday or Friday of nearly every week we'll ask a yes or no question predicting the results of some aspect of the sport involving Minnesotans.

If you want to play the game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us before the deadline we set. After competition around the track, in the field, or on the roads answers the question, we'll give everyone who was right a point, tally up the scores, and begin work on a question for the next week.

This week, we’re offering a bonus for participants making their debut in Yes/No: A correct answer will be worth two points for any first-time players, giving those of you who missed the contest last week a chance to catch right up.

Last week, 18 contestants correctly answered "yes" to the question, "Will Andrew Carlson be the top Minnesota finisher in the USA Men's Half Marathon Championships in Houston on Sunday?"

So, without further ado …

Yes/No: Will Emily Brown break her U of M Fieldhouse record of 9:10.60 in the 3000 meters at the Jack Johnson Classic this Saturday?

Send your "yes" or "no" answer to DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before noon on Saturday, January 24. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail ... and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail.

Note: Last year at the Jack Johnson Classic, Brown won the 3000m event in a personal best time of 9:10.60, establishing the current U of M Fieldhouse record. Brown recently competed in two European cross country races and a New Year’s Eve road race in New York City. She is preparing for the February 7 USA Cross Country Championships.
