The show must go on, no matter what! June 23, 2009

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

Monday night brought only the second week of Buzzwordz Trivia to II Brother Grill & Bar in Plano. When 8 o’clock came, the bar was packed with not one table empty in sight. Everyone was ready for Round 1 to begin! … except for LSU and Texas, who happened to be playing Game 1 of the College World Series.

The Longhorns lost in extra innings during the 1st game of the CWS.

The Tigers tied things up in the 9th inning. I thought to myself, “Oh, no big deal, this thing will be over soon.” An hour and a half later … we were all there to witness the longest game in CWS history! (That had also given me enough time to collect a wicked ranch stain on my shirt).

We got started over 2 hours late but didn’t even think about leaving because, let’s be honest, ‘the show must go on’!

It was still a great crowd to start off with as well. With around 8 teams, the competition was stiff in the beginning. We didn’t have to go to a tiebreaker as the FlopShop were the only ones to get the final question correct that had to do with automobiles.

With their $15 gift card in hand, they were looking forward to capitalize in the last round as well. Since it was so late, we had an abbreviated version where we skipped straight to the final round 3.

Some went home as the midnight hour was creeping towards us but enough people stayed for it to remain very competitive. FlopShop couldn’t bring in the gold though as the One Eyed Wonder Weasels won the round and the overall trivia.

Next week will prove to be even more fun and hopefully on time! Don’t worry … the CWS will be over!
