Night At The Movies I

Bobby: This is a game that has been requested for many years now and for whatever reason didn’t take place until last night. My 1st recollection of this request was Beefsteak’s Back as far back as 7 or 8 years ago.

7:45 – arrive @ Brewhouse
7:46 – realize the place is jam packed with regulars, very limited seating for trivia. Tell myself to relax, it’s early
8:00 – early meeting and greeting the teams smart enough to get there early
8:15 – gear is set up
8:30 – Show everyone the T-shirts
9:00 – still have 3 teams looking for a table – with 3 groups of locals stubbornly staying
9:10 – begin playing the loudest Heavy Metal I have to drive them out
9:20 – much like Manuel Noriega in the face of the USMC, they begin to break.
9:30 – the 1st question flies

United storm out to an early 1st qtr lead and win the 1st of 2 pitchers. They would fade into the pack in what is admittedly a weak category for them.

White Rhino holds the lead at halftime with nine teams within a single correct answer of catching them

End of the 3rd qtr 4 teams are bunched between 60 and 63 with Buckhead Rednex nosing out to a lead.  Alliance takes the lead on #19 and doesn’t give it back, making The Alliance the current champion of 3 separate FCT events – Night At The Movies, Trivia Bowl, & the Pairs Game.

Final scores
Alliance – 94 –
White Rhino – 86 –
Beefsteak – 78
Experience – 74
Muffins – 73
Tip – 70
Rednecks – 63
Red – 61
BB v. BOE – 59
Rash – 55
Pabst – 54
Kramerica – 54
HBT – 51
Santa – 46
United – 45
Belly – 45
Ray – 31
Chllngd- 25
#9 – 19
Easy – 9
BFrze – 1

151 players makes this the 8th busiest single game in FCT history (behind only MTM Finals III-IX)
There were 7 ‘Tassels’ in the room (now 8, Congratulations Pop)
There were 6 Lifetime Achievement Recipient teams in the room
There were 5 St. Patrick’s Cups in the room
Along with the current WCoT cup holders…

The water doesn’t get much deeper kids. The game was competitive and well received and the competition was worthy.

Week 5 ends in Athens & Carrolton Sunday Night.
