Current trivia question:

Trivia Q: Why is there no joy in Mudville?

Trivia A: According to the 1888 baseball poem "Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888" by Ernest Thayer:

 "Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;

 The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,

 And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;

 But there is no joy in Mudville—mighty Casey has struck out."

Our question today is inspired by Poem in Your Pocket Day, part of National Poetry Month (April, also the opening month of baseball season). See the entire poem read here:
