Mike’s 51st Annual* Awesome 2017 Super Bowl “Contestamundo”

(* No, this really isn’t the 51st time I did this, not even close, but it got your attention and sure sounds good, doesn’t it? Plus, in this day and age, who’s really counting?)


Rules —

ALL ARE WELCOME — Everyone/anyone can play and you don’t have to know anything about football to win. 25–ish questions total. Keep track of your correct answers as best as you can then share your final tally by posting the number correct in the Facebook comments section(or text/message/email/sky-write them to me).


New this year — PRIZES — Hell, yeah!!!!!

Prizes go three deep. The person who gets the most correct, then second and third. What do they get? Bottom three in the Contestamundo are responsible for sending top three a nice, friendly, positive, uplifting social media post. Or money if you have nothing nice to say, losers choice. Tiebreaker? Of those with the most correct answers, person who lives (or claims to live) in the most western state (then city or town) wins, then second, then third moving east. Hell yeah once again!
