I took my test last night. Much harder than I thought it would be, and the 15 seconds they give you for each question sounds like a lot, but when you're trying to recall a name or other fact, believe me, its not.

Needless to say, I'm not expecting a call from Trebec anytime soon.

They still do live tours of cities every spring I think.

I did okay on mine but probably not enough to warrant any kind of contact. 15 secs does seem long; but you have to see the category, then read the answer, then think about the question and finally type it if you know it.

One of my answers was supposed to be 'The Lovely Bones' and I am pretty sure I typed 'The Lovely Boner' by accident since the clock was around 2 seconds.

    • :...he at the very least cut down on the bad decisions in 2016." Then two  paragraphs later :-Decision making more random than earlier in his career...": Both of those can't be true, what can be true is this guy likes really big arms and really doesn't like Ryan. Sorry, it's just absurd to put Tanneyhill, Bradford, Prescott, Palmer [at this stage of his career], and  Mariota, ahead of Ryan. You want to put all the super bowl winning QBs ahead of him, fine.  And Cam doesn't deserve to be 3rd over, Big Ben, Brady, Wilson and Brees.  He's obviously a big Cam fan, but no.
    • I still love Josh.  Sue me.
    • My argument is that Josh Norman played on a poo defense which would negatively impact any player. Bradberry while surrounded by better talent barely outranked him.. You went off on a tangent about Norman being exposed which is absolute horseshit.
