Three great opportunities to get a win tonight and get your team into the Invitational, being held this Sunday at Lucky Strike. We’ll quiz, we’ll bowl, we’ll watch football. It’ll be great.
But if you haven’t gotten an invite yet, there’s still hope. You have to win this week. And you’ve got three chances to do so. We start at Markets at Comcast at 5:30. Then Carl hosts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Great shot to get a win there. And I’ll be at Sidecar at 8 p.m. as well. Hope to see ya tonight!
Here they are, folks, the final scores in the JGTAI. Teams in orange have been invited, teams in grey have accepted invite, and teams in blue are on the bubble, to take anyone’s place in case they can’t uphold their Invitational duties. Shoutout to Quiz Quiztie for winning the whole damn thing. If anyone has any questions or concerns, shoot me a line. Invites will be going out this weekend, and remember that next week is wild card week, so there’s still a shot to make the cut.
