Another thriller at O’Neals, as for the 2nd straight week, four teams finished within a question of a win. Dork Sided made their way to the top of the heap, edging the Young the Old and The Restless, 92-91. Philly Hardcore scored 90, and the Team to Beat in the NL East scored 88. The highlight of the show, of course, was my mom hosting round number two.
Another week, another win for the Kingdom, who cruised at the Bards on Tuesday. They blew out the field, knocking out Narcotizing Dysfunktion, 108-87.
No surprise at the Vous, either, as the Jams blasted past the competition to finish with 110 points and the win. 1022 finished 2nd with 102.
The River of Rocks proved that they can win regardless of venue, as the Rendezvous semi-regulars edged the Satan’s Minions at the Black Sheep, 111-108. Both teams only missed 3 questions, but the Minions missed the double question about Anna Nicole and the Rocks got it (question to follow on toughest Qs of the week).
A major MAGMA choke at the Good Dog. After three rounds, it was all but rapped up. They had a 9 point lead over Swiss Misters Little Sister and a 12 point lead over 3 1/2 Armenians, starring Steve O., going into the final round. But the wheels came off (possibly distracted by the green sweater?) and they finished 3rd with an 82. 3 1/2 Armenians took the title with a 90-88 win over the Swiss Misters.
A near upset at the Bards that would have been one for the ages. Johnny Utah’s Bulge in Stone Washed Jeans Resurrected Christ came one word away from defeating the Kingdom. But on the final question, “In the movie the Pink Panther, what was the Pink Panther?”, they wrote “A Diamond Thief.” Had they just wrote diamond, they would have walked away with an improbable come from behind victory. Instead Sofa escaped with a 102-99 win.
