1. Who was Michael Jackson’s doctor?

2. Who scored the first touchdown for the Steelers in Super Bowl 43?

3. Who won the PGA’s U.S. Open in 2009?

4. What is the name of South Carolina’s governor?

6. Who won the 2009 Australian Open (please identify the men’s and women’s winners)?

7. Name the four teams in the 2009 NCAA Men’s Final Four?

8. What is the Octomom’s real name?

9. Name two DC area restaurants where Barack Obama visited to eat since being elected President.

10. Name one concert I attended in 2009.

11. Not including Laos since there are multiple possible pronunciations, name the four one-syllable countries. (This question has nothing to do with current events.)


As always, please leave your answers in the comments section and do not use the internet to search for answers. However, you can search this blog to assist you in answering #10. Good luck!

Hand of Godard - I saw Neil Diamond in 2008, but he put on such a good show that it extended into 2009. I have no idea what that means, except that you get a point. 3 of 4 correct on the countries.

Tiny350z - Yes on all of them (including Fleetwood Mac). As a hint, the fourth Final Four member is in the Big East.

Messiah - Yes on all of your answers. I purposely asked the Obama question for when he got elected b/c I thought his trip to Ben's Chili Bowl took place prior to the inauguration.

We're still missing #1, 5, 6 and part of #7.

Way to finish off Trivia Tuesday, Tiny350z & Nichole!

We still didn't get an answer for the Alaska governor question, but I don't think the governor himself knows who he is.
