That's My Bike!!! missed the first three rounds and still almost came in third; a few more performances like that, and the name becomes true.
The bike is mounted on the wall at Drinker's, and will be given to the team with the most points accumulated by and including the final week in April. It's still quite possible for a team to start playing now and finish first. I plan to supplement that prize with some trivia goodies of the book and game variety.
Teams did so-so with the baseball round. I gave away a copy of the somewhat moot book Curse of the Bambino to the team that scored highest in that Subject round. Drinker's also continues to provide me with many high-quality prizes to give out, and pretty much everyone in the room is walking out with something cool, including a number of high-quality shirts and hats, Drinker's logo and otherwise. Right now there are a large number of female tops in my bag of goodies, so you ladies should come out next week and expand your summer wardrobe in a way that says "I am fond of alcohol!"

Just to simplify things, I'm going to drop teams from this list if they miss a few weeks and become mathematically eliminated from the tourney, although of course everyone is eligible for the weekly $25 tab and other prizes. Tiger was visiting from Virginia and won't be playing again, so you can discount them.
