First, you can come show off your sports knowledge at our annual Sports Trivia competition this Saturday, August 10 from 3:00-5:30! There will be 100 questions in 10 categories pulled from all over the sports world. Teams can have up to 8 people with prizes awarded to the top teams. The competition is in Marvin Auditorium 101C – doors open at 2:30. So come out and show us what you know!
And after you prove your sports knowledge, you can come back on Saturday August 17 for our “Let’s Talk Football” program featuring Topeka’s very own Fantasy Football “Freak” Terry Blount. You’ve probably heard Terry on WIBW radio with Jake Lebahn giving out fantasy football advice – and now is your opportunity to talk football with one of Topeka’s foremost gridiron experts. Not only will we be talking fantasy football with Terry, we’ll also be talking Chiefs, K-State, KU, and any other football topic you want to discuss.
Once Terry has whetted your appetite for football, and you’re geared up for the season to start, you’ll want to get signed up for the library’s Fantasy Football League. Our draft is Thursday, August 22 from 6:30-8:30 in the Hughes Room, and registration is required. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call 580-4545, or stop by the Red Carpet Desk in the library. All experience levels are welcome, there’s no fee to play, and the league winner will take home a prize at the end of the season. The last day to register for our league will be Sunday, August 18.
Football is here and we’ve got what you need to get into the season!
