Go for the gold!
We are running a little sport's trivia contest over here, and we want you to join in on the fun!
Here at Fat City Entertainment, we are always looking for way to add a little fun. So, what better way to inspire some trivia-love than having a contest?
Starting today, June 15th, you can get a chance to win a 4-pack of Sport's Trivia questions. All you have to do is stump us with your best bit of sports related trivia.
It doesn't matter which sport the trivia comes from either. Love basketball? Great! Synchronized swimming? Sounds good! Mixed martial arts? Fantastic! Hit us with an American football question or and off-the-wall shuffleboard question, we don't care. The person with the best piece of trivia will be crowned the winner.
So, what makes for a good sport's trivia question? Well, you can ask a question regarding general sports facts, like...
Who invented the game of basketball?
Or you could ask us to recall some obscure game rule, like...
In golf, is there a penalty for wiping dew of of your ball?
Or you could ask us to name some team stats or player achievements, like...
Who is the youngest driver to win the Daytona 500?
Or you could ask us to remember some bit of sport's figure celebrity, like...
Which Green Bay Packer had his own candy bars in the late 1990s?
Obviously, you don't want to send any of those questions...but you get the idea. The trickier your piece of trivia the better, the goal is for us to have to google that stuff because it is so tricky even trivia gurus like us don't know the answer!
Now for the rules, and there is really only one hard and fast rule. Your trivia question has to have a verifiable source. No stories about how your sister's boyfriend's cousin's mama used to babysit for Michael Jordan and he used to...blah, blah, blah. Nope. If we can't google it and find a for real source, you're out. You are free to enter as many times as you like, as long as you have a new question for each entry, and you get those entries in between today and July 15th. Got it?
Your prize, the 4-pack of sport's trivia questions, is a digital download, no shipping required. What does that mean? Anyone, anywhere can enter, assuming you have a valid email address where we can send you a download code. Yay for technology!

Why I Started Watching Football Again After A 5 Year Hiatus - A Special "Thank You" To The NFL League And Its Players.
In my early 20s, I fell in love with the kooky characters of the Tampa Buccaneers...
…Not long after that, I was blessed to actually witness my team defeat the Oakland Raiders to claim Super Bowl XXXVII. With Brad Johnson as his QB, and too-many-other-great-characters-to-mentions-in-this-short-blog, Jon Gruden took down his former team, and made me proud to be a fan. Those were the good ol’ days, full of interesting characters, and attainable statistic records.
In the years following, despite a cornucopia of games, spectacular plays, and new players to join the league, something was lost for me. There seemed to be more hype than ever, and I continued to join my friends for fantasy football drafts. However, my season ending rank gradually dropped as my interest did. For an unknown reason, and for me at least, the game had lost its luster...
Fast-forward to 2016
This season had began relatively similar for me as it had in the several years past. There were minor excitements when I got to see my old friends that I really only meet with once a year at the Saturday draft, the week before the season officially kicks off.
I couldn’t help but notice the gathering has humbled quite a bit, and there were noticeably more wedding rings and mentions of new babies at home. I think these new concepts actually drove our typical humour in a new direction, and for the better. I must admit.
When it comes to the actual “watching” of the games, it can be quite a commitment over the course of the season. I have always appreciated the NFL more than other leagues for having a more modest 16 game schedule. Compared to 82 hockey games a year, or the seemingly endless baseball season, this is much more manageable with my schedule. Having most of the games are on Sundays like clockwork, is a thing of genius.
At the beginning of the season of the past few years, I would typically watch several games. However by week 2 or 3, I would alway seem to find a more more productive way to spend my Sundays. Before long, football was on the back of my mind, and without keeping up with the players, my fantasy team would be lacking. Before I knew it, I would be out of playoff contention to those much more dedicated than I.
Something happened during this NFL season...
I can’t quite put my finger on it, but for whatever reason, I craved that excitement that I used to hold so dearly., and I definitely believe that the current state of national and international politics has at least partly to do with it.
The more turmoil and uncertainty in the world, the more we need our comfort zones, and to know that there is stability somewhere around us. This year, I found my solace with the fun and energetic youths of the NFL. (Not you, Kaepernick)
For this, I want to thank the NFL and to thank those players who have worked so hard this year to offer us some much-needed relief.
