Daily Trivia – 3/7/11

Question: In 1986, who became the first female president of the Philippines?

Last Question: In Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, what NHL team’s jersey does “Cameron” wear?

Answer: The Detroit Red Wings

If Ferris Bueller’s Day Off took place in Chicago, why did he wear a Detroit Red Wings jersey, you may ask (I know I did). Well, it was John Hughes paying tribute to his childhood hero Gordie Howe.

Gordie Howe was asked about this in Sports Illustrated:

SI.com: I was watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off the other day and your jersey was on the screen the whole time since Ferris’ friend Cameron is wearing it. I was wondering if you knew that your jersey would be a part of the movie.

Howe: Oh yeah, I sent them the jersey. They asked me for the jersey and I sent it out. It was nice seeing the No. 9 on the big screen. I had a lot of proud moments in that jersey.
