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.

Pumpkins are everywhere this time of year.  Whether you buy them to decorate or to bake delicious pumpkin pie, they are a clear sign of the Halloween season.

Another Halloween tradition for the past 50 years, is the airing of The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown .  Poor Linus misses out on Trick or Treating because he wastes Halloween night sitting in a pumpkin patch waiting for The Great Pumpkin to appear.  As a kid, I wondered what would be worse; to miss out on Trick or Treating or to get rocks instead of candy when going from house to house.

Never the less, it’s time for The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown trivia on Wiki-pete-ia!

Good Luck!
