This week Tim Cary, our social media guru at CBSSports.com, came up with a question that everybody in the social media world seemed to absolutely love:
Vikings-EAGLES Tuesday night! Fill in the blank with your most creative answer to describe 1946: "The last time an NFL game was played on Tuesday, ___________." EXAMPLE: "...there were only 48 states in the USA."
It was amazing how many a.) funny responses we received and b.) how many totally serious and factual responses we received. We appreciate people who took the opportunity to spread knowledge and wisdom, but as you’re about to see, we mainly chose to publish the responses that took a stab at humor. Enjoy.
