Wow, this was a wild one. Started with the Eagles game at the Troc. The Wheel of Terrific was pretty good, though we did one skit called “What did you ‘Putin’ My Sushi” that was high on concept but came off like a ton of bricks. But the other games went well, and the $100,000 Pyramid is always a huge hit. The game was great, of course, as the Eagles pulled of a win. BeerFest will be showing on Monday.
