Are you a competition junkie? If so, there is no better way to release that competitive fire than to take a quiz on sports!

Sports has always been a way to unite people from different backgrounds and cultures. These sports bring families, friends, and even rivals together as the fans all gather with snacks and team memorabilia to watch their favorite teams play against each other on game day. During this time, everyone yells at the referees and each other, explaining the rules as if they know them better than the people playing. If this sounds like you and your friends, here's a quiz that you should take.

This quiz provides you with a chance to compete against your friends by seeing how much you each know about the sports you love, especially those common sports terms that everyone should know. Maybe someone knows more about baseball, while another friend knows more about boxing, and both claim to know everything about football. Then, there's you, the one who possesses knowledge covering all sports. Surely, there are no sports terms you don't know, be it football, basketball, or any other competitive game.

If you're truly a competitor, take this quiz and see if you can knock it out of the park!
