I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend watching football. Time to focus and score some points for whoever you want to score points for. This is the second to last Trivia Corner round. Next week is the last round. It's getting down to the wire.

There will be 2 winners this series. The first place winner will get to choose whether they would like to guest post here on 'Just the Cheese' or have me write a post just about them and their blog. The second place winner will receive what the first place winner doesn't pick.
