Should Trivia Questions Be Continued ?

Postby 6 5.5hjsteve » Wed Nov 12, 2003 12:14 pm

Some of us had fun ( maybe too much fun ) with all this for the last week. Should it be continued, as long as it is not overdone ? ( my offense I know)
And somebody suggested that Trivia questions get posted as separate threads, I agree with that.

T & F N's opinion ? Opinions from others ?

T&FN says go for it! Trivia is one of the greatest things any sport generates. But I certainly agree with the premise of not throwing out a bunch of different questions in one post/thread.

Yeah, but it's gotta be cool, interesting stuff, not just random esoteria. i.e., what did Eugene Orowitz (from a previous TQ) have in common with a 4-time Super Bowl winner?

now wait a minute, I do not remember a question exactly like that, so is the answer, "Orowitz and Terry Bradshaw were both javelinists ?"

...and I think that there have been some answers that haven't been confirmed and some that haven't been answered. Perhaps someone like Steve, who must either be self-employed or have a very indulging boss, could summarize things as they now stand-maybe on a new thread. I got to go home to a slow dial-up and it doesn't load quite as fast as it does in this huge infrastructure that I have approved here at work for my T&F amusement.

MJD, I am neither self employed or do I have an indulgent boss, I just have a boss that does not know how much time I sometimes waste at work ! I am making an effort to curb my Message Board addiction and do it more form my computer at home.

Yes, I will repost the questions (2 or 3) that were still hanging on the old thread. They all were pretty darn stupid. Also.. sorry for forgetting that Tom Murphy went to Manhattan as well as Lou Jones. Mea culpa.

"I am making an effort to curb my Message Board addiction"

Let me guess Steve, you're an MBA?
