Summer Days at Greeley Avenue

The warm summer days are drifting by. Most days we have a clear brilliant blue sky with an occasional puff of white floating lazily by. Great camping weather, but I heard, and it’s just rumor of course that the camping grounds are pretty much booked through labor day! So what’s someone to do? Go to Greeley Avenue Bar and Grill, grab a beer and watch some sports!

August is Here, Do You Know What That Means?

footballAugust means a lot of things, but there’s one really awesome thing that August brings and that’s football!! I realize that it’s only the NFL preseason games, but if you’re a fan, you’re a fan and any football will work. So not only does the NFL start their first preseason game August 7th, but our Ducks and Beavers play their first games at the end of the month. The excitement is about to begin!

In the spirit of football, here are some interesting NFL facts for you in case Roy Smallwood asks questions during Quizzy Trivia on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m.

  • 78% of NFL players are bankrupt just two years after finishing their careers! There’s a group of “Science Cheerleaders,” former NFL and NBA Cheerleaders who go around getting people interested in science!The longest field goal in NFL history was kicked by a man who had only half a foot!
  • NFL cheerleaders only make $50 a game!
  • During a typical NFL game, the ball is only in play for 11 minutes!
  • When former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner dines out with his family, he always anonymously picks up the bill for one other table.
  • Deion  Sanders is the only person to hit an MLB home run and NFL touchdown in the same week. He’s also the only person to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl.
  • The American Sports industry is worth $422 billion and employs 1% of the population!
  • The Baltimore Ravens are named after Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.”
  • For over a decade, players that were featured on the cover of the Madden NFL video games were ‘cursed’ with a serious injury or a dramatic reduction in performance during the following season.
  • The ‘G’ on the Green Bay Packers helmet does not stand for ‘Green Bay’.
  • The huddle formation used in football came from deaf football players.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Players choose a group and then select a team name. The trivia game has four separate rounds, each round increasing in difficulty. There’s a “help line” in case your team needs some additional assistance. Who does that helpline consist of? The bartenders!

Roy Smallwood asks the questions, your team chats about the correct answer, and then it’s written on the score card. After each round, turn your answers in to receive your grade.

All types of trivia questions are asked so brush up on all your facts and join us at Greeley Avenue every Wednesday evening for the fun and games beginning at 6 p.m.

Of course Greeley Avenue offers all the play off games in the NFL! We are knee deep in competition and bad referee calls during the last few weeks of football season. The Super Bowl is fast approaching with teams scrambling for the ball and the championship and everyone asking who will grab that title this year?

During those off weeks between NFL, the NBA has plenty of games on.

Thursday, January 9th:
