Life is like a box of trivia – you never know what you’re gonna get.  Everyone thought with the hotly contested Lakes-Rockets game that we’d have a packed house again, but a handful of open tables.  It’s been hard to predict.

And after several weeks, I thought tonite’s crowd was REALLY funny.  Some great style point answers.  ‘Ball Fro’ ranks up there – didn’t expect to hear!

Round 1 was tough but close.  2 points separated first and last.  Two teams tied for first, Lost Children of Babylon (LCB) and Shake It Like a Baby, with Shake It winning the tie-breaker.

Me, Myself and Hannah and Hanzilla had to jet after round 1.  But round 2 was still hotly contested with the top 4 teams separated by one point.  Shake It won round 2 as well… and I had to talk them into staying, sheesh!

The Bonus Beer Question went to LCB, so they ended up getting payback for the tie-break in round 1.

The usually rockin’ Bacon8ers dropped out after round 2, but we picked up Beer Me! and Test Icicles.  And Test Icicles made the best of round 3 – their method of writing down a bunch of possible answers and then the last team member crossing off answers till they had 3 seemed to work especially well.  They won with a nice lead, and wished they had been there for the first two rounds… start time’s 8pm, gents!  And it was good to see Beer Me! make a strong play for the third round, they hung will with the leaders.

But no surprise for top points for the evening, based on earlier rounds, LCB and Shake It were winners.  The surprise was Dutch Ovens who normally are serious contenders but this week were just a bit off pace.  And a shout out to the style pointers: Morning Wood (20 for the evening) and Dutch Ovens (19), and Shake It Like a Baby wouldn’t have won round 2 without some great style point answers.

Funny and fun.  Thanks to all.  We’ll see you all next week whether the bar has a couple of tables open or is standing room only.  Life is like a box of trivia.

Ciao for now,

– Keith
