There are exactly 10 days remaining in the Habs 100 Trivia Question Primer contest to name bragging rights for the Canadiens most knowledgable fan.
So far I have sorted through dozens of entries and I have been quite surprised by what I am reading.
Hab fans sure know their stuff!
Not one single entry came back with less than 75 correct answers! Considering that I sought to make these questions difficult to Google, this is testament to how well versed Habs fans are in the facts and and details of their favorite teams history.
Up until last Friday night, I had read and scored 37 readers answers, and so far three entries have pulled away from the pack. After going through the first 5 or 6 replies, it quickly became apparent which answers were stumping fans accross the board.
In fact, there was one question (#36) worth 6 points for three names, that only one entrant nailed.
Samuel Desjardins, wherever you are - stand up and take a bow!
If you think you know your Habs and have what it takes to answer these questions, give it a shot in the remaining days.
