UPDATE – The answers and Leaderboard can be found below. The final round of questions will be up Monday Morning, October 26, 2009 by 8 a.m. est.
Well, we’re midway through the contest and we still have a real battle on our hands – with it being anyone’s game up near the top. Of course, there are a few unfortunate souls who have apparently disregarded Tangina’s voice and crossed on through to the other side (sorry George) but they should still stick with it simply for the fun of it all. I can’t promise an all football movie trivia contest (as the aforementioned George seems to be angling for) but maybe he can make some last minute Rudy heroics in this skirmish.
We’ve got two rounds left including this one. Contestants have until 8:00 a.m. Wednesday October 21st to send me their answers. The answers should be sent via e-mail to email@example.com.
As always, there is no cheating. You are on your honor – meaning you cannot hit up your wicked smart spouse or peruse the Internet in hopes of finding the solution to that which haunts you. Answer these off the top of your head and then send me your submission. After all, this is all in fun. No prize to be had aside from bragging rights.
To that end, I’ll post the results and updated leaderboard each Thursday.
May the best guy or ghoul win!!!
