    After months of losing, I finally won the SBR trivia contest this morning!

    OK there are a few Thursdays where I cant log in at all, but I never seem to win the Monday contest.


    My third question had something to do with teh SBR program. It asked which choice was not part of the program. I cant remember the answer at this time, but the wrong answers were Don best and Sport Options.


    My second question was much tougher than the third question. It asked who Stanford played in the 2011 Orange Bowl. But somehow I sort of remembered that game and guessed on Virginia Tech and that was right. Good thing that it wasnt like a Humanitarian Bowl question as I would not have remembered that question

    I cant believe that I actually remembered that 2011 Orange Bowl. I am not a fan of Stanford either! But somehow the game stuck in my mind.


    My first question was MUCH tougher than the 3rd question as well. Here was my first question. Just so happens that I knew the answer immediately, but I imagine that only 5% of SBR users could have named the answer without choices.

    Who was first to win Rookie Challenge Game MVP and the Slam Dunk Contest?

    My 60 pt question was who was the first team to knock the Pistons out of their first east conference finals.
    I answered "AIN"T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT" and boom I got it wrong.

    you should really stop at the second question (1/5 chance to get 60 pts > 10 pts already earned).

    *edit* this is intended to be a reply to Shari's post about stopping at the 1st triva question, but can be applied to everyone.

    po69 - Jason Richardson aka J-Rich was the first to win rookie challenge MVP and dunk contest...that guy could JAM

    soul7 - boomer esiason? is that who you got? his first name is Norman (Norman Julius aka Boomer Esiason)

    im usually pretty good at the trivia questions, but i am in a bigtime slump. i havent won it in weeks. i always get to the 175 pointer and miss it...today, my 175 point question was "what was the year the first john madden football game was made?" i thought it was madden 93, but apparently it was made in 92, so i got it wrong (correct answer 1992)

    Yup that was it, Norman was the answer. Problem is the only Norman I knew had a first name of Greg and that's it.

    This was the 60 pt one for me today

    what was the best per-game average for individual rushing in Division 1-A 2006 season?

    Who the penetrate would know that? Trivia is supposed to be fun. This shit is not fun. SBR went from giving points to giving freeplays. Whoever designs their trivia picks the most obscure shit that nobody would know even if you Googled it.


    We should all just get together and post all the questions and answers we get so we can share with each other.

    By the way the only reason I won on 1-24 and 1-28 is because the trivia clock froze for some reason and it gave me time to google it. Whatever program they use for the pop-up trivia shits the bed every once in a while and the counter doesn't work.

    People actually google answers? I just assumed that these questions were google-proof!


    I might have to start trying the google thing on Monday. I hardly ever get a chance to play on Thursdays, but I am ready to go on Monday

    From a gambling point of view you have to go for the 175 points all the times if you are given a chance.

    175 point questions are crazy. "Who hit the 7th triple of the 1957 season?"

    Everyone's still getting them twice a week and you're settings are showing as "on". They start after 9am and end at 11:59pm so if you're just popping in first thing in the morning you'll miss them. Also can't access them on a phone/tablet. If they weren't around you'd see a riot I suspect!

    Bad ass!! I've never gone for 60. I know I should with the odds and blah blah blah but when people ask for resets I see the questions they would've had and there's no f'n hope I would be able to answer them. I have a great memory but some of these q's are just silly and I refuse to cheat by Googling. I'm thinking I just need to suck it up and at least try though!
