Last night started off slow but really picked up pace through the night.  After starting with just 4 teams at question 1, by the end of the round we had 10 teams!  I’m Buzzed took off to an early lead but not not to be outdone was Beer Me who were 4 members strong this week.  Vacationers came in a little late and missed some questions but did really well in the first round.  It came down to a tie breaker between… you guessed it… I’m Buzzed and Beer Me! It’s funny when the closest answer for the tie breaker is still off by more than a million.  That honor went to I’m Buzzed seeing that he was only 1million off while Beer Me was off by a whopping 550million+!

Round 2 was a tough one and we had some pretty good style point answers to prove it!  Beer Me was on the war path as they took down everyone in their path to win round 2! They needed to watch out though because Norwegian Refugee Redo came in just in time for round 2 and they weren’t far behind!

In the final round I was fighting for my life!  There were many MANY challenging questions that had some of the teams riled up and threatened me (and my computer!) with bodily harm!  I’m pretty sure it was all in good fun… right guys?? Timmy, who was fighting once again all alone, and Rebounders both made a great efforts this round but fell a little short.  Then Carlito decided to show up and play the final round and I’m sure he is glad he did seeing that he kicked ass and won without a contest!  However, since he didn’t play all night there was no chance of Carlito nabbing any of the overall prizes.

First place overall went to Beer Me who have been on one heck of a winning streak lately!  I’m Buzzed came in second by just 2 points.

DON’T FORGET: OUR 4-WEEK TOURNAMENT STARTS IN JUST 2 WEEKS!

Thanks everyone for a wonderful night!  I’ll see you all next week, same bat time, same bat place!

Norwegian Refugee had a good shot at placing overall... if only they could show up on time for the first round!!
