Answers.com hits 10 million answers!

All ears, please! Answers.com announced yesterday that its Q&A community has reached the 10 million answer milestone.

The record-breaking answer came to the question: Who was the first Native American to play pro-football?

In case you’re curious: Jim Thorpe was probably the first American Indian to play pro football. He played professionally with the Pine Village Pros in Indiana in 1913 and later went on to become the first president of the NFL, where he also played for the Oorang Indians (an all-American Indian team) in Ohio.

A few of the other answers that came close, are to the following questions:

A word from Bob, Answers.com CEO, about the achievement:

TechCrunch reported the story as well.
