I had so much fun writing Tuesdays blog “Lessons from The Glenn” I’ve decided to make that my “thing.” Every night of trivia, we’re going to try and decypher life’s lessons of the night. Because what is the fun of trivia if we’re not learning anything.

After a week off from Bender’s, due to the Nuggets, and still being a relatively new show at Bender’s (not even two months old…) I was expected a drop in attendance. We  did have several “regulars” missing; the team who changes names every week (this week they were the Stick Figure Kitties) had only two of their pool of eight show up, while the central

figure in The Floozies was out sick (we hope she gets better soon!) Despite these attendance set backs, we had a great crowd. Several teams were just stopping by for dinner (like Team Kao) while others were originally there for a game (like Multiple Scoregasm) but most of the bar got involved with the game!

 

Round 1 started off well…..well, it started anyway. Our normal front runners, Legion of SuperNerds, seemed to struggle, only getting a few of the round one questions. Maybe their confidence was shattered two weeks ago, when they were dethroned. Regardless of the reason, Chunky but Funky left everyone in the dust of Round 1, scoring 8 out of 11 possible

 points! Their closest competition was Multiple Scoregasm with 5 points! We changed our prize structure this week, so Chunky but Funky won a $10 gift certificate, and then left for their company softball league. (Per their request I can’t say the name of the company they work for, or post photos of them with their works name on their clothes. Therefore, enjoy this humorous photo.)

 

Round two saw a new team “M&M” enter the game. They conquered most of the competition, but round two also saw fan favorites Legion of Super Nerds back to their shining glory. We ended round two with a tie. The nerds barely pulled

What if the Nerds, and our other regulars (Kitties) teamed up? They'd be unstoppable! Call the CIA, we have a code red!

ahead of our hard candy shelled competitors, but pull ahead they did, winning a $15 gift certificate. 

 

Round 3, the final round. The round to end all rounds. The round….well you get the idea. Despite being at a fifth of their strength, Stick Figure kitties stayed in the top two teams all the way to the end, as did Multiple Scoregasm, and Wet Tea Bags. Ultimately Round 3 saw M&M get their revenge by winning with 15 points, their closest team only had 11. M&M won the coveted $20 gift certificate. Once again they chose not to get a picture, so here is another funny photo.

Yummy.

Yummy.

 

 

So what did we learn this week from Bender’s?
1) Don’t under estimate a nerds confidence.
2) Don’t assume people won’t show up because there is no Nuggets game.
3) Those WERE the droids you were looking for!
                                                                                                               4) They melt in your mouth, not in your hands.
