Hard to believe I've been here this long. Really a tribute to Rob for keeping the place going all this time. Of course, having some of the most exemplary members in cigar board history helps too. Someday I might get there.

On to the contest. Rules are pretty simple.
Member in good standing for at least 6 months
Minimum of 200 posts
Not an asshat (my call)
Able to handle failure well (because you will fail numerous times)
Two guesses per day, I won't say which questions you got wrong just how many questions you got correct.
Nobody won last year so I made it a little easier for you this time.


Let the games begin!

Q1. What do The Wall Live, Gilda Radner and the 2016 Republican Nation Convention Have in common?

Q2. The Medal of Honor is very hard to get. Just ask these 3 who received 19 of the nation’s second highest award for valor between them. Who are they?

Q3. What verse did this illustrate originally?

Q4. This Rock Hall Of Fame drummer played with one of the 60’s most influential groups

Q5. Before Eric Clapton, before Alan Lomax and Stevie Ray Vaughn, before the Chess Brothers, John Mayall and Elvin Bishop – he was the first non-African American performer in the Blues Hall Of Fame
Enjoy!

Damn all the days
15 rainy day years
Wake at my sleep singing
Damn all the days

15 years ago today
There was a young man in my place

I never stop to count the days
15 years ago

Damn all the days
That there's no conversation
We're dumb but still talking
Damn all the days

15 years ago today
I was a young man in my way
I never stop to count the days
15 years ago

I wanna be wanted in my time
I wanna think time is on my side
I wanna be standing in my shoes
I wanna be just like you

Damn all the days
7 names that remind me
Sundays have failed me
Damn all the days

15 years ago today
I was a young man in my way
I never stop to count the days
15 years ago

15 years ago today
I was a young man in my way
I never stop to count the days
15 years ago
