Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

Houston we’ve had a problem. Those words were stated matter of factly from Apollo 13 following an on-board explosion on this day in 1970. The story was retold in a movie by the same name, starring Tom Hanks. So today we will do Apollo 13 trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida.

In fact, we play Wiki-Pete-ia for prizes every weekday at 4:45ish for your chance to win. This week, we’ve given our lucky winner the chance to chose prizes from our stash of Florida Everblades, Tampa Rays, or Fort Myers Might Mussels tickets. All you have to do is be caller number 9 at 239-337-3776 or 239-337-ESPN and you win! If you are not fortunate enough to get through then you can impress your friends and family by playing at work or at home. The questions and answers are listed below!

Launching rockets into space has always been fascinating! The Apollo program put man on the moon. The Space Shuttle program dominated my childhood interest in space. I used to watch the launches and landings live on TV. I would also track them in the night sky as they flew over head at 17,000 miles an hour. Now that I live in Southwest Florida I can watch the almost weekly launches from Cape Canaveral from my backyard on a clear day.

Houston we’ve had a problem !  Let’s talk Apollo 13 on Wiki-Pete-ia!
