Congratulations!
 
I plan on leaving the Trivia of the Day site up for the foreseeable future. It has ALL the past questions from the game, and all the past rankings, all separated by month & year. Check it out: http://www.angelfire.com/stars2/quizz2000/
 
 
If you are looking for some other place to play trivia, you can check out Paul Paquet's game. As he says:
 
 
"If you'd still like a daily fix of trivia, triviahalloffame.com has a daily game with 12 questions, where you can see where you stand against people playing the game from around the world."
 
 
You can also do a Google search, there are plenty of trivia games out there on the Net.
 
 
And I play the Trivial Pursuit game on Pogo.com each morning. It is a lot of fun!
 
 
Thank you again for playing all these years. It has been fun!
 
 
Take care -
 
 
- Joe

Trivia for 7/1
Good morning!
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Answer for 6/30:
 
In the famous Abbott and Costello "Who's on First" routine, what was the shortstop's name?
 
I Don't Give a Darn! Or some variation on that answer.
 
37 players answered correctly.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
That final question is a variation on the first question I asked, way back on July 3, 2000.
 
Ten years is a long time. But, in a way, it also flew by. It has been fun finding interesting and amusing questions to ask, and I hope you have had fun playing. Your answers had me laughing, researching and sometimes scratching my head.
 
I have enjoyed the game and learning some obscure facts, and, most of all, meeting some great people. I think of some of you as friends, and that has made these ten years more than worthwhile.
 
So take care, stay healthy, keep having fun and keep remembering those obscure little facts. You never know when they will come in handy!
 
Thanks for playing & take care -
 
- Joe
