I missed the first and last question. Hey, it's 60s trivia, and I figure I get a pass since most of that stuff happened 15 years before I was born.

I got an 80. I was born in 77 so I guess it's not too bad.

90% for me. I'm clearly the top Falcons Fan in these parts.

That thing on the AJC got me thinking about added quizzes/trivia to this site. I'll have to do some more research though before I go adding anything yet. But maybe by the end of the year, there will be a bunch of Falcons quizzes. But I'd probably make 3 different levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium, and Hard for multiple topics, such as Falcons draft trivia, trivia from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, overall and general falcons trivia, and probably a few other categories. Anybody got suggestions?

You could be pretty dangerous assembling a Falcons trivia contest, Pudge. Here's my suggestion--no stats and no draft questions! :lol: An appropriate question would be somethign like, "What are the two defign moments of M. Vick's career?" Answe: Pulling out chapstick in his first NFL huddle and having a knot raised on his forehead by same lip balm stashed in his helmet after a crushing blow from the Tampa Bay defense two years later." These are the more pertinent and illuminating facts that true fans need to and should know. As a sampler and a test...what design was printed on Deion's favorite pair of game day boxers that were once stolen from the locker room and later returned after he made a plea for them in the AJC?

I scored a 90% also. I missed the first training camp one.

I think a trivia contest is excellent! Like the sliding scale of knowledge idea, Pudge.
