BUT, PAULIE...IT'S SUMMER !!
On The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour each week, during the summer months, I present a quiz to the group that is in the studio with me. it's a fun way to learn a little bit about the women's sports on the UofL campus and also sparks a little bit of rivalry and competition between the "A-Team" members.
Our listeners and viewers on Facebook Live do pretty well on it also. Unless they are lying to us or "googling" the answers.
I know, I know...it's summer and you've put down the books and are enjoying a break from academia -- if you're a student -- for awhile, but it never hurts to stay sharp and keep the gray matter active. So, I'm offering a quiz for the readers today. We'll have ten questions, you get 10 points for each correct answer and there is a bonus at the end that can either get you 20 points or lose you 20 points.
You have the option of "passing" on the bonus, but no one ever does, it seems.
Answers are at the end of today's article. Good luck and here we go:
