About This Quiz

You're working on a Saturday evening with a handful of others that your boss called into work for an "emergency" which was no emergency at all. But you can still feel the beads of sweat sliding down your brow. You grasp the ball of paper tightly in your hand and send it sailing across the office. It arcs over three cubicles, banks off the blinds, and gently rolls around the edge of the garbage can. Congratulations! You just won the Saturday evening Office Olympics! 

You might be an aging 30-something who lets out a gasp of pain if you stand up too quickly, but there was a time in your life when you were an athlete and had the promise of turning pro - even if you had no idea what that actually meant. With a toss like your office Olympic win, you might have been a fantastic basketball player. Or maybe those Nerf tournaments you play with your kids help to brush off the dust of what was once a glorious come from behind High School football championship. From your favorite snacks and movies to your athletic prowess then and now we delve into one of the greatest chapters of your life. 

Answer these intimate questions about who you were and who you are and see if we can guess if you putt your way to the top, or go for it all on a last-second Hail Mary to the end zone.
