The Shemon and Sheppard Show pays its respects to the late Queen Elizabeth II , who passed away this week at the age of 96.  She ruled England for 70 years.  We will do Royal Family Trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia.

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

Most of the time, we focus on sports for Wiki-Pete-ia.  Most of the time.  We actually like to throw in pop culture, historical events, and other fun nonsense from time to time.  But today, we will focus on the Royal Family in honor of the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II.  Some one once said, “Long live the Queen!”  She did.  96 years was a good run in life.  And wearing the crown for 70 years was another good run.  So today we will test Pete’s (and our beloved audience’s) knowledge about the Royal Family. I’m not sure how this will go.  We will see.  For now, let’s play Wiki-Pete-ia.  Good luck to you!
