March 2 Trivia Rankings

March 2, 2016

Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play. A few of you regulars were missed so we sure hope to see you next week.

In the meantime, please VOTE for us over at  in Best Of The Triangle (polls close Sunday). I do this trivia thing because I love to do it. I’ll keep doing it until I can’t any longer (read: “cold, dead hands”). Winning something like this would be pretty damn awesome, I have to admit. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated.

Also, read about that record-setting Spidey comic book and check out astronaut Scott Kelly’s simian escapades …
