Welcome to the pilot episode of Shot Clock, a new sports trivia show hosted by Bacon Sports Founder Rob Cressy that tests your speed and knowledge of sports trivia, both past and present.

Here’s how it works. Just like in basketball, we are going to use a shot clock. To pay homage to the greatest basketball player ever, Michael Jordan, we are going to make it 23 seconds.

The goal of Shot Clock is to score as many points as possible. We’ll have 1, 2 and 3 point categories, and then channel our inner MTV Rock n Jock with a 23 point category, which we’ll get to at the end.

If you want to play at home and you are watching on Facebook Live then put your answers in the comments.

If you are listening via podcast then write down your answers and hit us up on social media @BaconSports and let us know how you did.

This is certainly going to be a work in progress so I want your feedback on how we can improve this and if you had fun playing along.
