The Week began on Sunday, when the Phils completed their monumental comeback (and the Mets completed their monumental collapse). It led to a wild, impromptu celebration in the middle of Broad Street.
-In quizzo action, we begin at the Big O, where the Young, the Old, and the F****** Psyched About the Phillies continued to roll past the competition with a 107-93 win over Dork Sided.
-The Sofa Kingdom cruised to a 99-80 win over the Narkotyzing Dysfunktion at the Bards, and then we all celebrated with Mind Erasers (above), which are a manly drink, I don’t care what you say.
–The Jams (aka Madison Square Garden: Ladies Entrance) won for the 9th time in 11 weeks at the Rendezvous, acing Round Four to knock off Playing With Steve, 112-102.
-A nailbiter at the Black Sheep, as Duane’s World slipped by Who Needs D? 102-100. After a couple of slow weeks, the crowd seems to be picking up at the Sheep as well. Once the weather turns, I think the Sheep will again become a hotbed of activity.
–MAGMA returned to the Good Dog on Thursday, and emerged with a victory. But they were upstaged by Mayoral candidate Michael Nutter, who showed up in time for the 4th round (above, with a crazed looking JGT, who happened to be wearing a “Member of the Right Wing Conspiracy Club” shirt that night). His team finished 4th. Al Taubenburger, if you’re listening and think you can put together a squad to take on Nutter’s team, let me know. I’ll see if I can put something together
-An overtime match at a packed Bards on Thursday night, as the Hurtin’ Bombs and the Kingdom ended in a dead heat. The OT question was, “When was Garth Brooks born?” The Kingdom answered 1954 and the Bombs answered 1958. The answer was 1962, and the Bombs came away with a win.
