When I walked in the bar it was D-E-A-D.  The servers were hoping trivia would bring them in… and it did!  By a few minutes after 9, we had 11 teams and most were composed of four or more players.  I think there were only 4 open tables when we got underway.  So… if you ask it, they will come…

Round 1 showed some great diversity in point range – some were just playing for fun and some were out for blood.  Legion of Supernerds were in it to win it and scored 10 points in round 1 (they missed just one question).  But That Baby Don’t Look Like Me and We Saw Some Cranes In Africa were just a 1/2 point back. And within striking distance were Griffmann, Podos de Panso Llantes, If You Seek Amy and Yes, ThatTeam DJ was one of the casual teams and they bailed after round 1.

After round 2, we started to get the feeling that Legion of Supernerds were unstoppable, as they took the round again.  We Saw Cranes was again just 1/2 point back.  Most everyone else was just a step or two off pace.

So I tried to give away a pitcher of beer, but – surprise – guess who won it?  Supernerds stike again.  But in good sportsmanship the pitcher was donated to Griffmann for coming in second.

If You Seek Amy supplied a nice group of 5 style point answers in round 2. And I loved it!

Colored Manatees saw that they weren’t going to make any headway and so jammed before round 3 got underway.  Podos de Panso Llantes also took off since they had already been there for an hour before trivia started – at least I didn’t have to struggle through their name anymore.

So was anybody going to catch the Nerds?  In round 3, it was down to the wire with just 2 questions left and then Nerds ended perfectly and smashed the competition.

That Baby is usually in close pursuit but tonight they struggled. However they did turn in 13 style point answers in the last round, which was even better than the 8 style points supplied by The Happy Endings.  At least it kept me and the bar entertained.

So we knew who had the top points for the evening but all were holding their breath to find out who had 2nd.  There were 3 teams who broke 40 points in contention for 2nd for the night: Griffmann (43), Yes That (41) and We Saw Cranes (48.5).  Finally some redemption for Cranes who were oh-so-close too many times.

So everyone, you need to do a bit more gathering of trivial knowledge before next week so you can do the beat down on Nerds.  I believe in you!

Come on back next week, ya hear!

Ciao for now,

– Keith

BTW, Tobin will be hosting for me next Saturday… so see ya in a couple of weeks.
