I learned today that a trivia player named Mark McCoy died last night. He played on a Sporcle Live trivia team at Oscar’s called Let’s Get It and also played in the My Trivia Live league with a bar hop team and as a league team at the ROC in Plymouth, MI. He was a regular follower of my trivia team’s Facebook page and told me in person several months ago that he enjoyed reading my trivia game recaps. He also told me last December about how excited he was that Let’s Get It qualified for its first ever Sporcle Live league championship , adding:
I’m glad we didn’t have to compete against your team!
The last time I saw him was a few weeks ago at a trivia game at Powell’s, where he was playing with a bar hop team called All Aboard. A teammate of his named Mike had informed me a while back about his cancer diagnosis, saying that he probably only had a short time left. And he wanted to play as many trivia games as he could in his last days.
RIP, Mark! May you know every answer at the “Great Trivia Tournament In The Sky.”
