Darn, I wish I’d married a guy who was more of a “Brony!” Because that would mean that I would be off the hook for knowing things about “My Little Pony.” I just don’t know much about these toys – whether that is because “My Little Pony” didn’t interest me when the first toys came out in 1981 – which could very well be true – or because “My Little Pony” was off my pop culture radar.
The only fact I’ve uncovered about “My Little Pony” over the past few years that I thought was kind of cool was that there was a pony named “Surf Rider,” which is also the name of the final track you will hear to the 1994 film Pulp Fiction. Well? What are you waiting for? Look that one up in your music streaming service now! 🙂 It’s pretty cool! Just be sure to put in “The Lively Ones” as the artist.

4 HOCKEY – HOCKEY – Which of the five main ice hockey positions has NOT had a player win the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP since 2000? We actually made the correct guess! If you were playing this virtual game with us, you could see me cheering on the Zoom cameras! What could be more exciting than that? The last time I was this excited to get a hockey question correct, the answer was Bobby Orr, which I knew because of “Peanuts” comics. This game was either in 2012 or 2013, and was at a barbecue joint near me that I will never, ever visit again because of that one time they cut me off! Pffft…
