So we skipped last week due to the NCAA games.  And this week we started late because the final four game was running late.  And the weather was threatening to get worse and worse.

But dammit. You wanted to play trivia!!!

So play we did.

We started with a dozen teams and they were all about business.  They decided their answers and brought ’em up quick and were mostly quiet when I was on the mic.  Unbelievable.

Round 1 was a close one. Going into the last question, we had 8 teams in contention.  Freud’s Missing Shoe eked out the win this round but Team “?”, Hot Lettuce, What’s Your Beef?, Mind the Sock Gap, and IRA were just a step back.

And heading into Round 2, NOBODY LEFT! And that provided another close round. Mind the Sock Gap took it but this time 7 teams were just a little behind with very notable performances by Hairyman Salad, and I’d Hit That!

The Bonus Beer Question went to first-timers Team “?”.

This is when the snow started falling in earnest, and several teams opted out: Freud’s Missing Shoe which was in 2nd, Toasty Luke who went out in a blaze of style points, and other contenders such as Alkies, Westside Connection, and IRA.

This left 7 teams playing for Round 3 AND top points overall.  In the end it came down to Mind the Sock Gap and What’s Your Beef? duking it out. Sock Gap one, which gave them top points overall, and Beef? was right behind them for round 3 and top points overall.  I Don’t Know had established themselves as the style point team to beat.

All in all, everyone had a blast.  It was a good night for me and there were a LOT of people getting their trivia jones-fix.

I hope to see you all back next week with no basketball games and, hopefully, no weather issues to contend with.  So till then…

Ciao for now,

– Keith
