I am NOT going to be surprised when it is 90 degrees at Christmas time this year! I’ve put away winter clothes like four times now! Freezing rain and a wintery mix on April 15th is just confusing. The good news…we had a big ol’ pub trvia bash at Monkey La La tonight! Eleven teams came out and splashed around a bit in the trivia waters.
Stink Floyd came out with a guns blazing and stayed in the lead 99% of the game. That 1%, however, was the final question. Stink finished with a very respectable third Place tonight. Great game Stink Floyd! Second Place went to third Quarter Nosedive who did no nosediving tonight, but rather gritted some teeth – pearly white ones I might add – and earned the two spot! And our winners tonight – Master Debaters. They stayed in striking distance throughout the game and followed through on the final for the leap frog into first FTW! Great stuff this evening everyone 🙂
Thanks for playing tonight everyone…it was fun and a learning experience. Some “notes to self” fun facts I will take away form tonight’s game:
– I need to re-watch Rain Man, I miss Raymond Babbitt
– The words “peninsula” and “pianist” really bring out my inner 8th grader
– Just because “mutton and mocha night” sounds cool and alliterative and all…doesn’t mean that it would be rewarding in any way whatsoever!
Oh and…uh PENINSULA! DOH!
See ya next Tuesday for some “Gone With the Wind” trivia for our opening question category. HAPPY EASTER if that’s your thing, if not, have a great week! Hopefully we can actually string some spring days together here soon… 🙂
A little torrential downpour could not affect Tuesday night’s turnout at Ramparts, as 15 teams piled in from the rain for some trivia fun. It was a tight race to the top, but Sorry Folks, Park’s Closed and Fat, Drunk, and Stupid each managed to pull away from the field at the end of round four. But when neither team could come up with the correct response iontyeh final, it was ALL CAPS who swept it with tehir first win of the season! Great job! Hodorisms also hit the final, and had their best finish of the season by winning the second place tie-breaker over the Stamp Collectors. Who knew Alex Trebek was so old? Anyway, next week’s first category will be the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”. See you in a week! ~ Matt
