The 2010 Ho Ho Ho Throwdown – Round 1 – Results Edition

Well, well, well. Here we are again. It seems like just yesterday we met for a melee under the mistletoe and we’re right back in tinsel-strewn Thunderdome for another battle royale. It’s become an annual event around these parts and while I’ve yet to make good on actually handing out any prizes (blame that damned economy) – there’s always bragging rights at stake.

This year we are going to run three rounds of seven questions each. Each set of questions will be posted on a Monday (December 6th, 13th and 20th). All submissions must be in to me by 6 p.m. EST each Thursday. You can submit your answers to me at or via message on Facebook. Answers and the Leaderboard will be posted each Friday morning.

As always, NO CHEATING!!! No Internet. No Bing. No Geocaching. Nothing. You cheat, you’re no better than Brett Favre. And on that note – no sexting me in hopes it will sway the voting.

So, with that said – let’s take her away. You have until Thursday December 9th at 6:00 p.m. EST to send me your answers.
