Group W have won at Frank's for the 8th time in 10 attempts, nipping a great effort by Dwayne & the Main Brain McClain by 9. W also grabbed the slightest toehold on another position on the All-Time High Scores List, their 158 tying 3 other teams for the final slot.
I tried to take a photo of the pair, but this time it came out looking exactly like the original Avengers, no doubt owing to the peculiar physics of the anti-photo aura they emit.
The quiz ran very smoothly, and we had nearly a 100% participation rate among the bar patrons with a number of large teams, which is ideal.
In last place, but with their highest score ever, I'd Pee in Her Butt both fulfilled Randolph's Law by finishing last with a naughty team name and fulfilled their own goal of earning the last place prize, which they missed last week by playing too well.
This week's last place prize was, and I swear I'm not making this up, a copy of the 'N Sync Backstage Pass board game, which as you can see from the photo they were entirely too happy about. They suggested a drinking game, which sounds appropriate as I don't expect people to play that sober.
The final scores:
Beautiful Gold: Group W 158
So-So Silver: Dwayne & the Main Brain McClain 149
Shameful, Shameful Bronze: Peglegs 120
Thinking Partners 92
Team Martin 89
I'd Pee in Her Butt 78
This game featured 3 lead changes, which is also what I like to see... a little competition, a little excitement, that sort of thing. See you next week, folks!
