Throw down at the Old C’s September 20, 2009

As we near the end of our September tournament we have teams throwing down in an epic way.  Some teams are using the “bring along people who we think are smarter than us” method while others have decided to go with the “recruit random people throughout the bar who may or may not know the right answer” trick.  Either way, it’s on like Donkey Kong!

As usual the game started off tight, and even though Beer Me won the first round without contest, John Loves Sausage, WASP, IDK, I’m Buzzed, and Quad Yeahs were all within one point.

In round 2 we gained more teams who wanted a piece of the action and TJ&C, Norwegian Refugee, and Zach & Amy gave the veterans a run for their money.  However, it was Quad Yeahs who took the second round.

It all came down to the third round to see who would come out on top.  All the teams were close but the race for first came down to WASP, I’m Buzzed and Quad Yeahs. I’m Buzzed won the round with a well placed bee double-up but was it enough to push him up to first place overall?  Sadly, no, he came in just a half a point shy of tying for first/second which was held by WASP and Quad Yeahs. On to the tie break question to determine first and second places.  Quad Yeahs overtook WASP with a closer guess and a first time team took home the gold.  However, the real race this month, of course, is the tournament… lets’ see how it stands…
