Riddle of the Day - 12/10/12


It's been forever since I had a riddle of the day!

It was tough to keep up posting these daily!


To get the contest going again, and to give members that chance to win more points... I will post as many as possible daily, until the end of the year!

Once the new year starts... I will make this a weekly thing. That way it will be easier to keep up with and I won't get burnt out doing it!

And a couple members had some good ideas about including sports related riddles and trivia as well! Your wish is granted!!!



Here is your riddle!!!


A spider falls into the bottom of a ten foot well. The spider climbs up two feet every day, but every night it slides back down a foot.
How many days will it take the spider to get to the top of the well and climb out?

Riddle of the Day - 12/11/12


As promised I am going to start to include sports triva into the "Riddle of the Day" contest!

Maybe I'll even mix in some pop culture and history type stuff as well... to keep the questions fresh!


So here are some sports questions for ya!



1. Name the player that leads Major League Baseball in All Time Career Grounded Into Double Plays (GDP)?


2. Current Chicago Bull Richard Hamilton has the nicknam "Rip", how did he get this nickname and from who?


3. Name the only player in the National Football Hall of Fame to play his entire football career in the American Football League (AFL) prior to the 1970 AFL–NFL merger?


4. Where does the Stanley Cup, the trophy given to the National Hockey League champion, get its name from?


5. In tennis, when keeping score... why do they use the word "love", instead of saying "zero"? (There are a couple different theories/possible answers)

1. cal ripken jr
2. from his dad because he would rip his diapers off
3. Billy Shaw
4. Originally inscribed the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, the trophy was donated in 1892 by then-Governor General of Canada, the Lord Stanley of Preston, as an award for Canada's top-ranking amateur ice hockey club. It was given for the first time in 1893 to Montreal HC. In 1915, the two professional ice hockey organizations, the National Hockey Association (NHA) and the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA), reached a gentlemen's agreement in which their respective champions would face each other for the Stanley Cup
5. Tennis started in france, in france they use the word "egg" to describe zero, in french "egg" sounds like "love" and it went from there.
