Our first category for next week is Clemson Football ~ Ronnie
Tonight we started out with an unusual question, yet another installment in the ‘Chad Sings’ series! This time the focus was #1 hits of the 1980’s, and featured me singing such hits as ‘Faith’ by George Michael, ‘Take the Money and Run’ by Steve Miller Band, and ‘Down Under’ by Men at Work. The question actually worked out rather well, although last week’s winners weren’t even there to see it!! (Danny Glover!!).
We also had a cool audio question which asked teams to name groups based on closing notes of songs. Teams had a tough time with this one, as nobody got all three of Crosby Stills and Nash (Suite: Judy Blue Eyes), Faith No More (Epic), and Third Eye Blind (Jumper). Halftime asked teams to identify things with double initials at the beginning, as well as naming answers that start with ‘sh’. I was really happy that anybody got the name of the ship in the original Pokemon games correct, which was the SS Anne.
In the second half, the hardest question was the Debut Albums question, which asked teams to identify the groups based on the debut albums we gave. I was surprised at how tough Appetite For Destruction was, as it is the best selling debut album of all time, for Guns and Roses. I was also surprised that Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park’s debut album, played tough too, as that was literally on last week’s halftime page. Also, only a few teams got Pink Floyd as the artists for The Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
Tonight’s final question was about Colonial America, and asked teams to identify the only original colony that was named for an Englishman who was NOT a member of nobility. Most teams got the right answer, which was Pennsylvania. Third place tonight went to That’s a Niner, and second went to 404: Answer Not Found. The win tonight went to the team that led from wire to wire, congrats to Cotton Candy! Next week we start with a question about the TV show Supernatural, so I’ll see you all then!
Until next time,
Thanks for venturing out into the rain tonight everyone. It was good to finally meet all of you and see the Spider Kelly’s trivia night in action. Y’all got game!
Highlights of the Night:
In “Parents-Are-Easy-Targets”: I think my mom and dad and their team may have had a bit too much to drink tonight, because they were certainly exuberant on correct answers to the later questions. So much so that Mom may or may not have flailed her arms so bad that she took out two or three drinks… Let’s take it down a notch mother.
In “Must-Survive-to-End-of-Game”: I’m a theatre kid. I can’t say the name of the Scottish play. Yet they make me say it all the time anyway! Must not be jinxed!
Thankfully, nothing happened and we got through the final unscathed.
In third place tonight, Charlie’s Angels!
In second place tonight, Swipe Left for a Better Team Name!
In first place tonight, Teamy McTeamface!
Great game everyone! Next week we’re gonna kick things off with a Medieval History! Gonna be interesting to say the least. Study up, and we’ll see you WEDNESDAY! Again, moving to WEDNESDAY, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel!
See you then!
