Bottom of the Fifth

And with that, we end our trivia fest for today. I'm curious if you guys like this trivia format and want to see more columns like it. (I used it once before many years ago in a column during Soldier Week.) Also, was the trivia to easy, too hard or just right? Inquiring minds want to know.

Join me next week when I learn to count to five (but unfortunately not six).

Until then, may you have fun playing with all the colors.
