Lambda Lambda Lambda (our current lineup) is made up of 4 members of the only Quizzo Bowl three-peat squad (Dave Brown, Jay O’Connor, AJ “I’m from Fishtown you F***n loser” Thomson, and Steve Odabashian – all-time record holder on VH1’s Name That Video and $50,000 winner on Who wants to be a millionaire.)
During our heyday, we didn’t do what a quizzo team should do (have a tech guy, have a medical guy, have a few women, have a pop culture guy.) Instead we had 6 lawyers all within their mid-30s to mid-40s and 2 rotating players. Sadly, the team RARELY plays as a unit, except at Quizzo Bowl. This has contributed to the team’s poor reputation in the quizzo circuit.
Orginally, the team started at the Good Dog!
Most often, a few of us play at Sidecar. During our heyday, we would play at O’neals and the Bards.
Steve Odabashian is our fearless leader.
Mike Manuel played on the last 2 legs of the 3peat
Johanna Werbach (went to Lower Merion High School with Steve) and her husband Kevin have been on the team for a few years now, including a 2nd place finish that came out of nowhere 3 years ago.
Brian Cintani joined the team one week ago (through AJ.) He lives in Nebraska and he will come in handy on questions about Tom Osbourne and Warren Buffet.
Claims to Fame
The team is the only team to 3-peat (Quizzo Bowl 4, 5, and 6. The team lost, coming in 2nd by a couple of points in Quizzo Bowl 3, and one question, coming in 2nd in Quizzo Bowl 13. Pretty sure we came in 4th on the Boat, and we placed 3rd at the 2020 Quizzo Bowl at Underground Arts.
Steve is also the inaugural champion in WIP’s 4-for-4 Philly sports trivia contest (winning in a 64-team invitational)
