There’s something about Old Chicago in Broomfield… it breeds fierce competition.  Last Saturday was no exception.

We started the night with 11 teams. And after the final question of round 1 we had 6 teams within 1/2 point of each other.  We needed a tie-break to decide between Team Us and OMG Pink Ponies – the Ponies won.

Balls Deep, Freuds Missing Stage, Ghost of Pants, and Dog Chow were the ones sitting 1/2 point back.

Despite posting good scores for round 1, we lost Daygo, 3 Stops to the Top, and Ski Bums.

And for round 2, another tie-break, this time between Team Us and Balls DeepTeam Us won the tie-break this time.

Freuds Missing Stage, Ghost of Pants, and Dog Chow, were again only a step behind.

We had to get creative for a Bonus Beer Question since the tie-break questions were all used up.  Freud answered with a risky guess, and won. They said they were psychically  connected on the answer – I guess so!  And BTW, I am NOT monotone! LOL.

This round provided a lot of great ‘style point’ answers. Thanks to Freud, GOAT, and Pink Ponies for providing the majority of them and keeping us laughing!

So heading into round 3 it was still anybody’s game. Ghost of Pants edged out Team Us, which was consistently great all night, to win the 3rd round.

And since it was such a tight race all night long, round 3 was enough to put Ghost of Pants into 2nd overall, and, of course, Team Us took first overall.

Spockers and GOAT never got their engines fully revved but I thank you for being such good sports and playing tough!

I hope you all come back next week, and we’ll see who brings their thinking caps. Because, as you know, in Broomfield, you’ve got to be in it to win it!

Ciao for now,

– Keith
