It came to pass....


Tucker:  Did you have a nice nap?
mr_ed:  I couldn't sleep. Couldn't turn my brain off.
Tucker:  That's a switch.
mr_ed:  I'll switch you, you ...
Tucker:  Trivia time!
mr_ed:  Oh, yeah.

Last hour's trivia answer:  The Battle of Glorieta Pass, March 26-28, 1862. Near Santa Fe, the First Colorado Volunteers and others shut down the ambitious Confederate plan for Brigadier General Sibley to seize strategic western forts and Colorado gold and to separate California from the rest of the country so it could eventually be taken.

This hour's trivia question:  Here's an item straight from today's (or yesterday's) headlines: Gridiron whiz winds up going to court. He had the potential to go all the way ... and, actually, he did. His name?

Next hour's trivia category:  Back to Colorado and the Final Frontier!

Woo Tucker. Sorry Dad could not sleep. What a bummer. My mom just had a cup of coffee. Lord, I hope she can hang with me all night. She has already come up with things to do in the early morning hours (other than read your blog of course) to help her stay awake with me :)
Hugs,
Sitka

P.S. We will work on your trivia question and see if we can figure it out ;)

Is that football player Poopie McPooperton AKA Michael Vick?

Tucker said...

Heh. This is just Colorado trivia. McPooperton isn't the answer. To this question, anyway. :-)
