Question of the Day

Yesterday's Question of the Day asked …  After which journalist was Bill Simmons' website on sports and pop culture "Grantland" named? Bonus points if you can fit in a famous quote, too! That would be Grantland Rice, a sports writer from the early 20th century with a gift for the written word. Even if you've never heard of him, you've heard of at least one of his lines; he's the one who let us know that it's "not that you won or lost – But how you played the Game."

Congratulations to Thomas Feyer at the New York Times for being the first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Craig Pittman at the Tampa Bay Times (who tells us that Grantland's memoir was the first journalism book he ever read), Cindi Lash at Pittsburgh Magazine@.l.interpretationsJeanne Kirk (who reminds us that Grantland coined the phrase "The Four Horsemen of Notre Dame"), and Hollywood Highlands.

Today's question may take a little research: Long before he was famous, Brad Pitt dropped out of the esteemed Missouri School of Journalism (only two credits shy of graduating) to move to Los Angeles. The rest is history, but what reportedly was his last, unfinished assignment?
