 About two months ago ESPN the Mag writer Rick Reilly wrote about ChaCha, a mobile company where you can text a question and get an answer FREE! I thought "wow, this is awesome!" So I started using ChaCha. Oh, how I regret it. The biggest problem is that you only have 3 questions to ask per week, so you have to use them wisely. Plus, the answers you get are usually crap.

  Let me show some of my questions and how they answered them. The last question I asked was What is Chipper Jones career batting average, home runs, and RBIs? Where does he rank in Braves history with these stats. They answered Chipper Jones has a career batting average of .310 with 1407 RBI's and 417 Home runs. He ranks up there with Hank Aaron. He ranks UP THERE with Hank Aaron? That's not what I was shooting for.

  Then when I was in Daytona at dinner I wanted to get an update on the College World Series, so I texted "Score College World Series". ChaCha has a feature where you can text "Score (insert team name here)" and get the score of the team's recent games. I was surprised to see that I did get an answer to my question. However, it was from the CWS from a few years ago, as it said UNC and Oregon State were playing. All I could say was WOW.

  Don't trust ChaCha with sports questions. Go with more celebrity-type stuff. Stuff like "What is actor Terrence Hill's real name?" (Terence Hill was born as Mario Girotti on March 29, 1939 in Venice, Italy) or "Who played the Sandman in Spiderman?" (It was Thomas Haden Church). Reilly focused on the sports side of ChaCha. I don't see how he stayed sane while working with them. He even named answers he got that were wrong. So don't do the ChaCha, just look it up on the Internet like I once did.
