Wow! A whole day dedicated to me. Those of you who know me know I love trivia (Corey Two Fingers Gaiden aka The Analytical Ninja calls me Fact Boy, but I am sure he does it out of love). So when I found out that today was National Trivia Day I was thrilled. But a sick baby, a cautious wife, a trip to the doctor, and a Lifeway deadline have kept me from sitting down and adding my own little bits of trivia to this day.
So I am sorry that for most of you this will be a day late, but here are some questions for you. Please email me with your answers. I will choose randomly from all correct responses and come up with some sort of prize for the winner.
