Eagles Soar - at least the first round they do

This past Thursday at the OC Thornton was the hardest fought match we’ve had in a long time… and four different teams walked away with prizes (unless they drunk them there!)

Right out of the gate we knew that Pinball Wizard, Hans & Co, Eagles Soar, and Norwegian Refugee had come to play.  Hans had more team members than usual.  Norwegian did some nice bar recruiting, and even Eagles Soar had a cohort.

First round had Pinball, Norwegian, and Eagles tied with Hans only 1/2 point behind. Eagles Soar won the tie break.

Apparently the competition was too much for Team Huskers and Detrimental Incidents as they jetted after round 1. Even Team B only played one round.

Kudos for Beer Me! sticking around even though they weren’t serious contenders.  I sure love the style points!

Round 2 was much the same; tie break between Pinball and Eagles with Hans 1 point behind and Norwegian 1/2 point back.  Pinball won that tie-break.

So for round 3, it was looking like another neck and neck battle but Hans and Norwegian used very successful double up’s on the last question to pull ahead.  Hans won the round, and with enough points to pull off the come from behind victory for total points for the evening.  And Norwegian made up enough ground on the last question to take 2nd overall.

… four teams fighting for the big win – four different teams winning prizes.  Awesome!

And the word to the management staff (Larry!), remember Rule #2: Don’t shout out the answers!  After all these months, you’d think you’d have that memorized.  Sheeesh!

So to everyone, I say just one word – MANEATER!  Maybe you had to be there.

See you next week?

Ciao for now,

Bushes, Berries, and Obama Bailouts Take the Lead January 29, 2009

We had some new sparkling talent at Jay’s Wednesday night trivia this week. Way to go Twigs and Bushes! I think you’ve gotten smarter with every week. Now if I could just avoid messing up the powerpoint slideshow, that would be great…

Team Twigs and Bushes (formerly Berries)—well I guess I can call you guys regulars, but you’re new to the winner’s circle! Good job winning rounds one and two, and winning overall. You guys took some pretty sweet Jaeger gear home.

Bail Me Out Obama (lovin’ the name, very inspirational) was new to Jay’s Wednesday night fun but they’re trivia junkies. They warmed up by the end of the night and won an awesome Coors sign.

Team Likes to Give You Hell (does that mean me?), you guys recruited two team members and doubled your score from last week. Keep it up! I’ll try to get some Hannah Montana questions in there—I know that’s your one of your strengths.

Stray Katz got bumped out of their first place standings this week. I think you guys were still a little bitter about me confiscating that Jaegermeister sign last week. Don’t worry, there’s always next week.

Hello everyone thanks for coming out on Tuesday for the show I had a great time!  I have noticed a small dropoff in numbers because school started I guess but please bring some new people and I will try and do the same!  The Monkees took the cake this week again for the second week in a row, great job guys!  LLUA were close on their tails tying for the third round and only losing the game by one.  Jaws was playing solo and had a great game, R3 was a new team and actually tied for the 1st round with the Monkees.  Old C’s staff team also played a wonderful game staying with the top teams until the very end of the game!  Thanks again for coming I hope to see you all again next week!

Ricoh here. We had a slower than usual night at the bar, which meant there weren’t any new teams for our regulars to go against — which is usually a treat to meet new people and get ’em addicted to the game.

So it was an all-pro event with our four elite teams going head-to-head-to-head-to-head. 🙂

Scooter McGavin took the first round by one point, knowing who was the Ramones’ favorite punk rock girl. However every other team was only a point behind.

 

Scooter McGavin, after the first pitcher.

Second round went to Scooter McGavin, after a tie breaker with Us Two who both had 14pts for the round. No one believed that Tulo wasn’t Rookie of the Year!

Third round went to N(e)2, who was back to winning ways with 22 points in the round.

 

N(e)2..who lost their third member JUST as I was walking up to take the picture..

N(e)2..who lost their third member JUST as I was walking up to take the picture..

So your final scores after three rounds was N(e)2 with 38 points, The Lone Rangers and Scooter McGavin tied for second with 41 points, and our chumpions champions of the night…Us Two!

 

Us Two

Us Two..nice smile!

What a fun night at Wheatridge.  We had 3 different teams win pitchers of beer.  Then two of those teams won first and second on the night. 

Taking round one on the night were Huey, Dewey, and Louie but preferred to be called H-D-L.

H-D-L has an awesome night

Round two we had a 3 way tie with H-D-L, Morbid Peanut, and Condoms 4 Breakfast.  Condoms snuck out the win. Condoms also took second on the night.

Round three went soundly to Just Us & John, they also took first on the night by one point.

Just Us & John were a powerhouse of 3

We were also visited by the Blue Moon Girls who one of our teams thought were way hot so their team name was Blue Moon Girls are Hot.

Your Last Chance to Win a Massage January 29, 2009

This week was the last week of the 10 week tournament at Ogden Street South.  We are playing the championship game next week.  How to get into the championship game:  win one game during the last 10 weeks, or play every week for 8 weeks.  The prizes this time: $600 grand prize & $100 second place.

The game was close and I thought that maybe someone else was going to take the prize home tonight, but you never can tell till the end.

1-28-09-0161883 was down two players at the beginning of the game, but they still managed to win the prize for the week.  THey have won several games throughout the 10 weeks, but they still only get one seat in the championship game.  Maybe somebody can take them down…

no, they didn't all sit on one side all night

no, they didn't all sit on one side all night

They were back this week trying to get a win, but The Quicks a.k.a. Little J wasn’t able to get a prize this week.  They promised me they would be back in two weeks to try and get into the championship game next time.

1-28-09-019

you can't see it,but he's wearing flip flops in the snow

This team started out as two ladies sitting at the bar playing one of those electronic video games.   They were about to leave and go home and watch tv, but I convinced them to.   See Jo, Science Nerds did play and have fun!

1-28-09-018I didn’t get to find out of their K & R was their initals or not.  They were aprehensive about the picture thing, but then said they were joking.  They played for a while and then left during the middle of the second round.  Well thanks for playing while you did.

1-28-09-015Now I don’t know if their name is about their hobbies or their names.  S & M  was a new team to Ogden Street South  I wasn’t sure if they were going to play, because they already had their food boxed up and ready to go.  They stayed till the end though.  I think maybe they will come back, cause they had a good time.

The Regulars played only one round, cause then they started drinking more and hanging out more.  I think they made the same poor girl deliver their answers every day.  I also save that girl from this guy who thought that she might want to “know” his name.  I really don’t think she is your type, dude.  Ok, I didn’t get a picture of these folks, sorry.

1-28-09-017BMG – I think you played once before, long long ago.  They didn’t start till the game was about half over, but they still did well point wise.  I think I saw them playing pool after the game.  I also think that they might be back again.

Alright, so don’t forget that the championship is next week.  So if you won a game in the past 10 weeks, you get to play for the prize.  If you want to come and just play and I’ll buy you a drink, that’s cool too (you just can’t get the big bucks).

See you next week!

Charlie’s is always so unpredictable.  And oddly enough, in the middle of the winter, we can still take advantage of “Twisted Tuesday” where we strip down.  We had some bras, some bare chests, and even some boxer briefs in the mix.  Oh I love you guys!!

So we started the game and gained a few teams and lost a few teams.  We ended the game with less clothing and 6 teams.

I also want to announce that we have been upgraded with our trivia supplies.  We have a bucket for my supplies, but inside that bucket is the best: my usual pitcher to hold the blank answer sheets, and a new glass & metal pencil cup! 

Aside from the supplies and undergarments, we really did play trivia.

1-28-09-005First place went to The Two Amigos.  If you read the blog or used to play trivia at Charlie’slast year, you would recognize Torey.   They always change their team name, but never change their faces.  Holly and I had something huge in common, we had the same bags- mine red, her’s green.  I also learned that Torey is rated a 4 on the gay scale.  (Don’t ask, really).

1-28-09-0101One of the forerunners of their team is still on vacation.  How much vacation time can one have?!  AlleyGators won second place this week.  They won the pitcher from round two and were celebrating a birthday.  They brought some cupcakes, but they ate the whole tray between their table.

1-28-09-011They went to the tie breaker for round three.  They weren’t able to score a free pitcher.  FlipTop Box grabbed some drink cards tonight and had a good time (of course, cause they were at Charlie’s for trivia!!)

We had lots of other teams that played with us (not like that!):

was half asleep waiting for the game.  Well maybe not really calling it asleep, but half passed out.  He sat by me this week because he didn’t want to walk through the crowd to turn in his answer.  Well then by round three, he wasn’t really turning in answers.  I do believe that he was talking to my paper pitcher at one point though. 

he wasn't have any pictures tonight.

He played part of the first round and then complained that he was cold and went inside the bar. Phil R  was all bundled up in a jacket and couldn’t get warm enough- isn’t that when you should drink more?

JT wasn’t able to get any prizes tonight.  Tim was in with a new hair cut.  Not sure if it’s because I have been telling him lately to cut it, or if he was looking to make out with that strange boy again.  Either way, it looks good.

There was actually three people on this team, so I’m not really sure who is the left and who is the right and well, I don’t have three, so I just don’t know.  Marci’s Tetas played the first round and then dissipated for the rest of the game.

1-28-09-0121They started in the third round.  They really didn’t have a chance to win one of the big prizes, but they played for the fun.  Iowa Boys were new to the game.

1-28-09-013DGRG, you told me what your team name meant, and I don’t remember.  I’m sorry.  They also were only around for the third round.

Whew, well that was our teams this week.  Sorry that I was a day late, but I definitely didn’t forget you guys!

Hello all my Pimps and Pimpettes!  This last Tuesday at The Glenn in Northglenn we had 12 teams compeating for the coveted prize of my approval … oh yeah and 45$ in gift certificates too, but really, my approval.  Round 1 and we see a lot of old faces and a lot of new.  Teams Devil Dog, 5 Knuckle Shuffle, and Gods of Wrong Answers all made a great showing with Gaza Strippers coming in just slightly above them.  The end of the round was a tie breaker between on again off again geniuses FOP and a new comer Town Drunks, but in this round, experience made the difference and FOP took it down.  Round 2 and the competition ramps up.  Teams Weeps, JJ Dynomite, Dave and JJ’s all tried to keep up with the leaders.  Gaza Strippers and Just the 2 of Us came close, but in this round it was back to the old school with Gods of Wrong Answers taking home the gold.  Into round 3 and this time the teams weren’t fartin around with it.  Everyone dug deep into their recesses of trivial knowlege, but yet again, Gods of Wrong Answers just couldn’t be beat.  Hope you all had fun and I’ll see you next week!

Competition Heats Up @ Superior January 27, 2009

Well this was week two of big competition at the OC in Superior.  We only had 3 teams return from week one.  But we also had a good turn out of some new teams.  We had a total of  14 teams at one point.

Taking both bonus questions in round one and two were Asses on Fire.  And boy were they.  They were very, very close in both of their estimated guesses. They also finished in fifth on the night overall.

This was again a very close week.  Only points seperating 1st and fifth.  With a two way tie for 3rd.

Taking first over all on the night was Pinch a Loaf.

Dazed was back for week two and took second trailing by 1.

Our tie for 3rd if there was one was between 4 on 70 and Big Girl Panties and the Commandos. (my fave team name on the night)

Fourth was return team Shuttlecocks.  They missed week one but doubt they will miss anymore.

Another great team name on the night was Brazilian Wax which equals No Bush. They took off midway round 2 but I think they will be back for more.

The Devils Rejects were also very close in the runnings.

The Worst Team Ever wasnt that bad.  They just left in the middle of round 3.

We had Kick Ass playing and boy did they scoring 11 out of 12 in round one. But they bailed on us in round 2.

Goat Cheese Pizza came back this week this is my third team back from week one.

26 Champions were a great group on guys to trash talk spots.  By the way who does Mike Tomlin coach for? Yeah 26 championships for the Yanks. Congrats.

4th and Long is a team I hadn’t seen since before Christmas so it was good to see them back out and about.

 

Look forward to seeing you all next
