New TriviaFix Sports Trivia Widget

We are always looking for new ways to distribute our sports trivia content and today we are happy to include the cool widget you see in the sidebar. Feel free to grab the widget and post it on your site. Every day it will grab a new question from the TriviaFix database and display it in the widget.

If you are a publisher and are interested in customizing the widget to specific sports or teams drop me a note and we can set you up in a few minutes.

Help me out here....

The original idea of the "Submit a Question" feature on TriviaFix was for players to be able to challenge others by submitting there own sports trivia question and answers. Very quickly I realized that many were trying to submit trivia questions that they didn't know the answers to. I am thinking of adding a feature that would allow for this type of question - but until then you should try some of the sites dedicated to this like Wiki-Answers or Yedda (recently purchased by AOL).

Here is one that was submitted today:
"Last week the Philadelphia Eagles were double digit favorites this week they are double digit underdogs has this happened before in the NFL?"

Great question- if you know leave the answer in the comments, or better yet submit it as a Football question on TriviaFix.

Welcome to Sports Trivia Nut

Let's face it - sports fans love sports trivia. But have you ever noticed that there are no really good sports trivia web sites out there? I am talking about a site that has great questions, lets me compare how much I know against my friends and other players, and a site that lets me submit questions as well as answer them. The only site that comes close to this is FunTrivia. The problem I have with FunTrivia is that it is not a sports site- it is a general trivia site with a sports section and so it does not cater to a real sports fan. After to talking over this problem with a friend of mine the 2 of us set out to create the ultimate sports trivia web site- TriviaFix.

TriviaFix is all about sports trivia. We don't care what you know about TV or movies but don't even bother playing if you don't know your sports! We have sections on basketball trivia, baseball trivia, hockey trivia and football trivia. You can show off what you know by sport or team- each category has its own mini competition. You earn points for both answering and submitting questions. One of the coolest features is the trivia base don the sports news items of the day. For each story we select a player or team relevant to the story and give you a question on him.

I know that not everyone has the time to play all day so I decided to start this blog and bring you some of the great trivia questions to read online.
