    Why is this a Q on Yankee day?????

    9. What is David Ortiz's nickname?

    Your Answer: Big Papi
    After Yankees fans began the "Who's Your Daddy?" chant against Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez, Red Sox fans chanted "Who's Your Papi", each time Ortiz came up to bat. Papi is a term of respect in Latin America.

    It could be defensible. If it were a Red Sox quiz, don't you think it would be appropriate to ask, "What is Bucky Dent's middle name?"

    I'm mad at myself, I skipped a question by mistake. I knew the answer too! I don't know how I did that!

    Come on, seriously. Who got the save in game 3 of the 2005 World Series? That's not even trivia.

    I know. And a lot of the questions are repeats now as we've been playing for so many months.

    We really should quit playing this stupid thing; I mean there's really only 10-12 of us that still play on any regular basis but I'm hooked. It's like a drug.

    There was a question saying that Unchained Melody was from th '90's. I think they better do some more research since that song came out way before that, probably in the '50's.

    Technically it came out in the '50s, but nobody knew about it until The Righteous Brothers did their version in the '60s.
    1990 is a stretch, but it was a Top-40 song again after they used it in pottery scene at the beginning of Ghost.

    Are you for real? If you were living in the 50's you would have known about it as it was a popular song way before the Righeous Brothers sang it.

    Saying it was from the 90's was just way off altogether.

    Um. Why does this think I took 473 seconds to complete? I most certainly did NOT. And I'm not just saying that. I didn't step away or anything...odd. And annoying! I got all 10 right...

    I noticed once before that someone else had over 500 seconds and thought it must be a mistake or something.

    Re: Fun Trivia contest

    I've had several of those insane timer counts over the past several months. It happens to me when I've finished the quiz and hit submit and something goes nuts with my internet connection. I've actually had to re-boot my computer a couple of times and then go back in and re-take the quiz but the timer keeps running. Pisses me off royally.

    Well, back to a more normal time today. Not a great time, however.
