Usually, the bigger the team, the better their scores, but tonite proved the power of the almighty twosomes!

And a consistent night – starting with 9 teams and ending with 9 – Awesome!

When it comes to beer, for some teams that’s the only motivator needed.  And so it was for Trivial Ass.  Although it was a big cluster of teams down to the wire, playing for a pitcher of beer was enough to make Trivia Ass pull ahead for the win.  The contenders for this round were Brain Hangerz, Cookie Dusters, Prickly Cauliflower (later renamed Prickly Pickle), Yes, That, Dave Will Cry If He Wants To, and Down 2 3.  Later, for the Bonus Beer Question, Trivial Ass stepped forward again to take it.

But when the gift certificates were put up for grabs it was all about the twosomes.  For round 2, Brain Hangerz got it.  Never were there a noisier bunch of guys, enthusiastic and able to draw pretty pictures on their answer sheets as well – weird, I know.  And all but two teams were within 1.5 points of Hangerz.

So this was going to make round 3, a fight to the finish.

We had lost Prickly Pickle (another team of 2 with serious skills) but had picked up Renegades (another team of 2, always working the style point angle!), so the fight was on.

Round 3 finally showed some separation.  Hangerz just needed a solid round to win the whole she-bang but it wasn’t to be so.  The bigger teams – Cookie Dusters, and Trivial Ass fell off the pace, and the mid-sized teams were in a mid-point range – It’s Division 1 Football (who knew the last names of the Webster parents – ooh scary), Suckiest Ninjas (who actually had to spend  time serving the players and less playing – life’s not fair), and Down 2 3 (who had an off night).

So that left the door open for Yes, That (this week only a team of 2) to sweep in and take round 3.  And by doing that gained top points for the evening.  But who got 2nd top points?  None other than Dave Will Cry If He Wants To (DWCIHWT) – after all it was Dave’s birthday and he deserved to win something.

It was a group that was fun and serious at the same time – interested in having fun and serious about winning.  It made for a great night.  Hope everyone had as good a time as I did.

If so… see you next week?

Ciao for now,

– Keith
