Tuesday Brought some Changes!
A crazy crazy close game tonight when we had over half the teams in the top three towards the end. One team came out on top however as Mini Van Mafia (as a twosome!) took first with the final question.
We had an EXCITING battle and finish at our Tuesday game at Zepheira Sports Bar! We had two teams just going back and forth with each other in 1st place, then once the final was answered, there was one final flip! In 3rd was I’m Just Making this up as I Go Along! Putting up an amazing battle but having to take away 2nd was Sanford & Son! They were up, they were down, but then got back up on the last question of the game. !st place victory belonged to The Avengers!! Their pick for next weeks winners choice is “Judas Priest”, so rock out and come have some fun with us next Tuesday night at Zepheira Sports Bar!! ~ Jon J
A wonderful Tuesday night here at Champions, we had some new faces mixed in to our usual suspects! Always fun showing the new teams the ropes. We laughed, we took some tuaca shots, then we laughed harder. I am way more entertaining when you’re drunk- bottoms up in the name of knowledge people!
It was a squeaker going into the final round here at Cugini’s as there was only 6 points separating 1st and 6th place, and all in a field of eight teams! Then the final happened, and only ONE team emerged with a correct answer to take the win. Here are the results:
Drunk N Disorderly in 1st
Team Janet in 2nd
WWBS in 3rd
Our first category for next week is “foreign currency” ~ Ronnie
Tonight at the Orioles Nest we kicked things off with a question about The Dark Knight trilogy, which is all about Batman. The question asked for the villainous alter ego of Jonathan Crane, who was a main antagonist in Batman Begins. A few teams got the answer, which was The Scarecrow. We also had an interesting audio clue, where we heard two celebrities talking and asked teams to identify them. Everybody got Alex Trebek, but Louis C.K. was tougher to recognize. We also learned that apparently everyone but me has seen the film Notting Hill, which was surprising.
Heading into the second half things were extremely close, with only a few points separating everyone at the top. We started the second half with a category that everyone loves, which is British Monarchs. The question asked teams to identify the parents of Elizabeth I, which were a king and his second wife. The answer turned out to be Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, which stumped a few teams at least partially. The potent potables question was interesting, which ended up being multiple choice and asking about Tuaca, a drink I’ve never even heard of.
Tonight’s final question was about sports geography, and proved to be rather tough. The question asked for the most populous state to NOT have a team in all four major sports leagues, becoming that way after a 2011 relocation left them with just 3/4 teams. Only one team got the answer of Georgia, which lost the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg (now the Jets) in 2011. This caused scores to stay pretty much the same, with third going to Ignorance is Bliss and second going to Black Steel. Tonight’s winners were the only team to get the final, but they were already in first so it didn’t matter too much; either way congrats to Fractured But Whole! Next week we start out with a question about Office Space! Love that movie! See you all then!
Until next time,
We’re winding down this summer season, but teams aren’t shying away from the competition! We battled back and forth this week, with teams changing positions and closing the lead gap several times on our way to a decisive final.
Second Place: Dave’s Not Here
First Place: Poovey Farms
Highlights of the Night:
In “Who-Was-Gonna-Get-That?”: I think it’s pretty safe to say that unless we had some savvy investors in the crowd tonight, no one was gonna pull a KO as Coca-Cola’s Stock sign. That said, even when I commiserate with you guys, I get stink eye! What’s up with that??
In “Ian’s-Prolonged-Puberty”: Every now and then the old voice crack will hit me after a long day. I’ve been talking a lot, it happens. When it happens a lot, despite water and coffee nearby however, it starts to wear on me, even more than my teams. “Shut the hell up, Mickey,” was not something I’d ever thought I’d hear, and yet there it was!
In “Confused?-So-Am-I”: I had to read, re-read, and check the answer to the 6-4-2 on the internet when I read the first clue, because I think I may have been even more confused than my teams were on that one. But apparently, Transjordan was the area’s name when it was still a British Emirate. Who knew? I certainly didn’t!
The final locked things up pretty neatly, with our podium set and wrapped up with a bow.
Honorable Mention goes to Beer Pressure, who would’ve been in first place, except they had a few too many people on their team. Sorry guys, rules are rules!
In third place tonight, Axl’s Doghouse!
In second place tonight, Jerry’s Kids!
In first place tonight, The Fan Club!
Great game everyone! Next week we’ll kick things off with a Triple 50/50 Cheaters category. Presented without comment. See you next week!
Thanks as always, and Fair Winds and Following Seas
