Sports Forum Quiz - Regular Updates with Brand New Questions!

Ok, so I thought I'd show some initiative and start a brand new sports quiz thread which will be updated regularly with all kinds of sports related questions to test your knowledge.
This in turn will be used to create an archive of sports related facts and trivia which will be posted in another brand new thread on the forum called "Sports Trivia Mega-Thread".
So when the answers are revealed on this thread, these facts will be updated onto the corresponding thread and hopefully overtime we will build up a nice little treasure trove of sports related trivia.
