    I can't believe it, I went back and changed about four answers and all of them were correct on the first guess! I have had that happen on one or two but not four of them! I'm mad at myself!

    Thank you. It's been way too many months without a win for me, and I've never been able to manage that many daily wins. Maybe it was something new I ate.

    I am getting really disgusted with the music category. All the questions are about rap music, probably the only kind of music I know nothing about.

    Re: Fun Trivia contest

    Lately when I click on Play Today's Game as soon as the game comes up a pop up advertisement comes up at the same time. It is very disconcerting while I am trying to play the game as fast as I can. I know I have software to block pop ups so I don't get it! I wouldn't mind the pop up ad but not while I am being timed to play the game!

    An ad pops up for me too (and I also have pop-up blocker on) but at least for me it pops up behind the window I have open for the trivia quiz. It is pretty annoying.

    A little off topic but as those of us on this thread like trivia, have you all checked out Sporcle? They have about 4 new trivia quizzes each day on any number of topics. There are thousands of existing quizzes there. Positively addicting.

    Since I make the window of the game as small as I can in order to scroll up faster the window pops up next to the game window on my computer with most of it sticking out. I find it really distracting. Do they really think we are going to read these ads while we are being timed doing a puzzle?

    Re: Fun Trivia contest

    Here's one other thing you can do:
    Instead of immediately clicking on "Play Today's Game" from the main page, click on one of the other options, "Standings", "Awards", "Link Up", etc. The ad will pop-up when you click on one of these, you can then close it, click on "Main" and then take the quiz for the day.

    Hope this helps.

    I owe one of today's correct answers to John. He taught me all about the dragons and fairies and elfs and other assorted scary creatures from Siegfried.

    Re: Fun Trivia contest

    My pet peeve on the music questions is that they ask questions about chords and such which are really questions for actual musicians, not music trivia. I know nothing about that but a lot about music trivia. Whenever they ask me a question for musicians I get them wrong unless I guess right. Those type of questions are not in every quiz but I don't think they can be considered music trivia. That is just my opinion.

    In light of this fact, I say "Congratulations" to OxDiesel as the legitimate NYYFans Trivia contest winner for September.
