Okay, a few of you may remember about a month or so ago, I made a FanPost about how I had gone through some turbulence in regard to my ability to attend tonight's game. However, due to the benevolence of a certain someone here who requested anonymity, I was given two tickets! However, my friend had to cancel on me last minute, and the rest of my crew be trippin', yo! (That's right, I'm gansta!) So I have an extra ticket, and so I figured the only fair way to decide who gets it is by way of trivia contest!
These questions all pertain to things OTHER than hockey (some are sports related, others not so much) that I personally have interest in (for the record, I'm a theatre major with a music minor -
search Wikipedia think accordingly). I will ask ten (10) questions, which you can answer VIA EMAILING ME at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to answer in the comments for fun, but I don't want to give someone who takes this at 2 pm to have an unfair advantage over someone who checks it at 10 am because other people have been answering all day (hopefully). ANSWERS IN THE COMMENTS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
The contest will end at 3:00 PM central time today, at which time the winner (the one who gets the most right, obviously) will be notified via email.
Good luck, and...uh-go!
