Oh, hump day. You may signal that the work week is half done, but Pour House Pub Trivia really makes the day better!
You know, I think the proverb about the road to hell being paved with good intentions might be adapted for Pour House pub trivia – The road to victory is paved with missed answers!
Ok, it’s not great. I’m working on it!
Wednesday night’s game brough that proverb, and a slew of other important bits of information!
I don’t know much about English history, but the only thing I do remember is King Henry VIII’s wives: Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived!
Now that we’ve had a little history lesson, let’s see the games!
In the film “UHF”, future “Seinfeld” star Michael Richards portrayed Stanley Spadowski, who hosted the kids show “Stanley Spadowski’s Clubhouse” on Channel 62. On one episode, Stanley allowed one lucky child to take a drink from this item. Name it.
WRONG ANSWER #1: A SHOT OF TEQUILA…
WRONG ANSWER #2: A LEFT BREAST…
WRONG ANSWER #3: THE TOILET!
I think I liked these answers because it reminded me of a night in college…holla! 😉
Have a good weekend my friends. Next Wednesday our game begins with US PRESIDENTS. Thanx for hangin’ this evening…see you soon.
We had a great game at Cellar door last night!
We had a heck of a night tonight at the Olney Tavern, with quite a little back and forth action!
As always with a game of Pour House Trivia, NOTHING is set in stone until AFTER the final question!
Things looked pretty comfortable on the podium after our 6, 4, 2 question, but the ladies and gents from I Just Quizzed In My Pants had eyes on that second place spot!
They scratched and clawed their way up with some smart wagers and NAILED the final to move into second!
Third place went to the #Dumbasses!
A very strong round all around from Only The Lonely moved them into first early, and they held on tight to retain!
Before you go, some fun observations of the night:
- Our final question did NOT in fact have anything to do with bridges! I do hear that the ones in Pittsburgh are quite nice, though!
- I appreciate you fine folks attempting to trip me up…but you’ve got to be pretty quick to trip up Tripp! (I apologize for speaking in the third person!)
- Philadelphia>>>Pittsburgh. Sorry friends, I have to stick to my roots!
Our first category next week is NOT Pennsylvania related, it is Upstate New York!
See you then!
The overall standings couldn’t be any closer as hit the homestretch in Season IX at T.J. Stone’s. The past few weeks, Winners in Life has been gaining ground on our 3-time house champions, the B-58s, and they took another step closer tonight with their second win of the season! It was a tight finish, and they needed every point to take home tonight’s win. They were defintiely helped by the always-useful accidental correct answer on the A + B question. And THAT is why we do not make you show your work. The B-58s kept it close all night but had to settle for second, while Virgins and IRS: Thanks for Nothing rounded out our top three. Next week begins with a question on “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. See you then!
The final question flipped the script on our game here at Valley Grill Sports Bar, and even the strategic wagering couldn’t save the leader board from moving around at the end.
Book Club Babes nailed the final for first, Brain Freeze leapt into second, and Xavier Onassis also moved up into third. Join me again next week, where our first category will be the TV show “Scandal“.
