Bobby: Big crowd at Brewhouse for the last Atlanta show of week 8. Robust turn outs from most of the contenders.
United, Muffins, Alliance, BB v. BOE, Rednecks, Ray – Ray, Red, Glass 1/2 Full all represent to one degree or another.
This game tended to favor the teams that were cautiously aggressive. Large bids on educated guesses spelled doom for a couple of groups.
There was also a controversy from BB v. BOE over a Kris being a dagger, not a sword. It is both, leaving the answer to the question (sword) valid.
I’ve seen ceremonial Kris daggers on Indonesian groomsmen in weddings I’ve MC’d and I’m aware the older Kris tend to be smaller, but as I told BB v. BOE at the game, I’ve seen them with blades over two feet long and I held one that was almost 3 feet in total length. I even had the Filipino kid from team #13 come up and say he appreciated the Filipino angle to the question (his answer was sword fwiw)
There have been a few of these with BB v. BOE lately, and my take is that the pressure of the stretch run is starting to grind on them and they’re looking to put it back on me..
I’ll say this about that – fine, I can take it. If I’m doubtful, I’ll look it up and change it on the fly and will announce it to God and everyone … You’ve all seen me do it before numerous times. I’d rather be right than have an ego trip over it. Truth be told, I want it to be based on the team that earned it… If I tell you I’m sure I’m right, the odds are over 95% that I am.
I’m not banging on BB v BOE per se .. they’ve just had a few lately and they’re important at this particular point in time. This one I knew, because I had direct experience with this question.. Hell, I even saw one being discussed on TV the other day (literally Wednesday) that was well over 2 feet long, looked closer to 3 feet actually…
Anyway – I’m sure they’re convinced I’m conspiring to undermine their effort to win the cumulative, but I’m not… Sword, Shell, Hobbit…
United continue their push for glory with a 97 and 1st
Alliance claim 2nd with 95
Rednecks are 3rd with 88
BB are a bitter BotR – 87
Muffins – 86
Ray-Ray – 70
Red – 65
1/2 – 49
a team called One Eyed Salazars wanted to kill me too fwiw… Ahhh trivia, she is a fickle mistress…
In other news, Utter Chaos decided against the long odds of a 4 man team coming in cold and have rescinded their acceptance to play in the Finals, so they are no longer on the leader board. Maroons are still listed, but until they pay they are not official…
