There are few things I love in this world more than my Kentucky Wildcats. I’m a born and raised Kentuckian, a UK alum and a life long Cats fan for going on 23 years. Similarly, I love trivia. Kentucky sports are one of the few things that can beat a solid bar trivia night. I’ve been writing trivia articles every Saturday for the last couple months and now I have decided to combine the two things I love. So, here is one of the most my best ones yet: Kentucky Sports Trivia. 15 questions, matching and a final that only true Cats fans would know. Follow us on Twitter @soft7sports and let us know how you did.

After a one week hiatus (I had to graduate real quick, my bad), we are back for another edition of Saturday morning sports trivia. May is an underrated month.

The Soft 7’s love our readers for their minds, so let’s end the week with another 15 questions. Follow us on twitter @soft7sports and retweet/share to challenge your friends.

Letting the terrible teams keep making terrible choices and let them wonder why they are a bottom tier franchise.

With hockey finally converting from background noise to must-watch television, it is only right that it is the subject of today’s trivia.
