Ok that last couple of Tuesday Trivia's may have been a little "obscure'. So this week, I thought I’d try a fun one.
Everyone's who's been diving for a little while has heard the heard of 'Scuba Steve' and probably have referred to someone as 'Scuba Steve'.
This week's trivia question is , Where did this endearing term come from or even more recently, what movie made it a popular catchphrase?
