2019 Trivia Lists Day 27: that’ll do for now

As noted in this piece on 1 January I planned to create daily lists of trivia for the first few weeks of 2019, appropriate for each day of the New Year. I have done so for the first 26 days of this month. On 1 January there were lists of things beginning with A or that were first numerically. On 2 January there were things beginning with B or that came second numerically. And so on. There are no letters left in the English alphabet. Those earlier pieces list every country, capital city, chemical element, UK #1 artist or UK #1 song title from A to Z. They also list the first 26 Popes, the first 26 Presidents of the USA and the winners of Superbowls I to XXVI. The host countries and winners of all 21 FIFA World Cup tournaments are also included, but we will have to wait until 2038 before we get to the 26th World Cup. I’ll take a break from listing daily trivia pieces, at least until 1 February. The remainder of this post gives you the Popes, US Presidents and Superbowl winners from 27 to 31 (or XXVII to XXXI) in their respective lists, and links to all 26 of the daily pieces posted this month.

The Popes, 27th to 31st

27 St Eutychian (275AD to 283AD)

28 St Caius (283AD to 296AD)

[According to the Oxford Dictionary of Popes, the Holy See remained vacant for over 3 years after Marcelllinus’s apostasy because of internal divisions and persecutions.]
