St. Louis Sports Trivia Game

stlouistriviaHey all you St. Louisan holiday and birthday shoppers! I grabbed this great game called You Gotta Know St. Louis Sports Trivia Game. It is perfect for any St. Louis sports fan, or any sports fan in general. It is a great gift that this St. Louis Dad recommends picking up this holiday season.

There are so many great questions to keep everyone entertained for hours. The game is pretty simple, it’s trivia! There are 125 cards with 500 questions. You ask questions and other people answer them. Keep track of the points and whoever gets to 21 or whatever number first wins.

You can pick this game up from Amazon for pretty cheap. It’s a nice bargain for some great trivia questions specific to St. Louis.

So much history has happened here in St. Louis and wrapping it up in a game like this is a fantastic way to preserve that history. Over 500 questions that are about hockey, football, baseball, and more! You Gotta Know St. Louis is a perfect gift to add to your cart this year.

You Gotta Know St. Louis is the addictive sports trivia game made just for the St. Louis sports fan. With 500 questions, there’s something for everyone from the casual fan to the obsessed sports geek. Baseball. Hockey. Football. Basketball. Players. Coaches. Trades. Draft picks. Numbers and records. Buildings, ballparks, and arenas. It’s all here. Each card has a point value (based on difficulty) for easy “race to 21″ game play… or just ask the questions to your buddies while you’re drinking beer.

If you are looking for something for that sports fan, or you’re curious to know what unofficial mascot appears on the 2011 Cardinals World Series rings prompted by its dash across home plate during the NLDS? Or what St. Louis native claimed the undisputed heavyweight championship with a split-decision win over Muhammed Ali in 1978? This game is for you.

My wife, she doesn’t know much about St. Louis sports trivia, but my buddies do. So this game will be great to play when we get together. Maybe my wife will learn a few facts as well. Who knows, I’m just excited to play!

How Important Is The Overall Attitude Of The Applicant?

jobrecruit

The good news is that job opportunities in finance are plentiful. The less encouraging news is that it still takes some work for finance graduates to find a suitable employment position. Considering that only about 20 percent of employers list available positions online, it is best to search for a job through a recruitment agency. The best employment agencies do not simply take information from your resume and plug it into an algorithm. They consider the whole person, and an applicant’s attitude is very important in a job search.

Be Yourself, but Take the Right Attitude

helpwanted_smallerThere is really no such thing as a good or bad personality; you are just you. There are several popular ways of describing and categorizing people’s personality characteristics. For example, the Meyers-Briggs theory of personality classifies people as introverts or extraverts, and each personality type prefers a certain kind of job. For example, an extravert might like to work as a manager, where she has to base her actions on her anticipations of other people’s reactions. An introvert would find a job like that stressful. The introvert would prefer a job as a financial analyst, where he spends part of each workday alone and where social interactions are usually one-on- one. Some recruitment firms offer questionnaires based on one or another theory of personality to help them recommend suitable jobs for applicants.

Meanwhile, certain attitudes are important for success at work, no matter what your personality type. For example, it is important to speak respectfully to co-workers at all times, even when directly addressing interpersonal conflicts. Soft skills such as your attitude in dealing with others are very important in the job search. They can be the deciding factor in which of several candidates with similar credentials gets the job.

Shopkins are Coming to St. Louis!

ShopkinsLive2

If your kid is anything like mine than the word Shopkins has been thrown around your house like crazy these last few years. Season 1, season 2, season3 etc, etc. I have heard about them all. Not only from my daughter, but from my son as well. The little characters are pretty cute and the names are hilarious. Taco Terry anyone? We have hundreds of these little plastic toys and the checklists to make sure we have those ultra rares in our sights. So when the kids heard about the Shopkins stage show they asked when it was coming to our town and without even realizing it, it’s this month!!!

While Shopkins might seem like a total girl toy, my son loves them just as much and I have heard of other boys liking them as well. They are really cool and a great idea for kids to start learning about collecting. I love the checklists and the mystery figures. I only wish I had thought of Shopkins!
