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?


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.

Football and Friends at 99 Hops House – Win $50!

hopshouseThis season of football has been pretty interesting on and off the field. It has lead to some debates among friends, but we are always able to come to terms in the end over a few beers and just enjoying some professional football.

Sometimes you can’t enjoy watching football at home while the kids are running around and getting in front of the T.V. So once in a while you have to take the enjoyment outside of the house and bring the guys along with you and turn it into a night out.

That’s where 99 Hops House comes in. Located in Hollywood Casino, St. Louis, this is a great place to sit back and enjoy a variety of beers (99 of them!) and some delicious food, all while watching some football. There’s plenty of space for all of your buddies or just a couple of friends. It’s important to get out of the house once in a while and spend some time with the guys. It’s important for moms to get out and it’s important for dads as well. With me and my team it’s a little easier to huddle up the gang and head out to grab some beers. For me, 99 Hops House is a touchdown. It’s just a short drive to get some great food and watch the game with my best buds.

Drinking a few, watching the game and joking around with each other is what we do best. Throw in some food and we’re gonna have a good time. As we get older it’s important to us that we find some time to hang out every so often. Football season brings us all together as the teams work their way to the top spots. We have our fantasy leagues but it’s the real thing that brings out the true excitement. This might be the perfect spot to keep that excitement coming week after week.

While you’re at 99 Hops House be sure to check out the burgers. They are so tasty and are labeled the juiciest for good reason. Pair it up with one of their 99 different beers and you will be set until 3rd quarter when ya might want to try one of their desserts. I did not know about this when I went to 99 Hops House the very first time so I didn’t try it, but I’m thinking me and the gang might give it a go during playoffs this year. It’s the 99 Hops House Passport Program. Purchase 99 different beers and get prizes along the way! It would be a great excuse to go out with the guys and try out all kinds of different beers. Plus we’ll be watching football. It doesn’t get much better than that (don’t tell my wife I said that)…

Just ask the server for details when you get there. Here is a little break down of what you get if you get yourself into the program.

10 beers: Free Appetizer at 99 Hops House
25 beers: 99 Hops House Bottle Koozie & Hat
50 beers: $25 food credit to 99 Hops House
