Sports Starters (Posted on 2005-04-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Many us us have seen the problems which start you out with a number and a sentence with a few words missing, and you have to figure out how the number fits into the sentence. For example, 8 = S on a S S could be answered 8 sides on a stop sign.

Can you figure out all these sports related starter problems? (One disclaimer, anything I've seen on TSN or ESPN counts as a "sport")

5 = S on a H T
5 = P in a F of F P B
5 = C in a P H
5 = S in a M's T M
5 = C R on the O L
5 = P N of the T B
5 = M for a M P in H
5 = L C S of W S C (Y, 1950-)
5 = C of the O S on a P T
