Darby: A battle between MTM veterans as Oedipus & the Mamas Boys battled Experience for most of the game. Both went all in on #20 which turned out to be a bad social. If Oedipus bids 2, they win and earn the 9 points. Instead your winners with 71 points is Experience. 2nd place goes to FCT newcomers “Giselle is Still Tom Brady’s Favorite Tight End” with 65. 3rd place goes to Oedipus with 63.
Brent: Red Dead Samurai, after victories on Monday and Tuesday, were poised to sweep the week in Canton, and thanks to poor play from many local regulars, it was all but theirs as Big Mike entered #20 with a 70-62-57-49-47 lead. The perfect week ended on #20, however, as 3 teams sniped him for house cash. One question away from 27 performance points just 3 days into the tournament? That’s solid. Instead, 1st time team Purdy Nerdy Dirty Dogs take the win AND the invite, only to dart out the door before I could explain MTM to them in greater detail. Their loss. Ray-Ray salvages a halftime score of 9 – yes, 9 – and takes 3rd with 67. Edging them out was Nitram Odarp, making their return after a long absence. Challenged got #20 for 2. If they go 20, they’re sitting on 1st place house cash, an 82 point base score for week 1, 9 performance points, 91 total points, and an invite to March Trivia Madness. Ouch…
Canton teams in general had a rough start and would be well served to check out Darby’s game at Uncle Pepper’s tonight, where performance points are generally lying around begging to be taken. Challenged, Coconuts, Ray-Ray, and High Rollers – I’m looking in your direction… I’ll be hosting music trivia on Sunday, where performance points will be available as well, and the format tends to allow anything to happen, even if you’re not very good at music.
My sources in Carrollton, Athens, and Little Five inform me the other new bubble teams are Razor Burn (formerly known as Taking Back Trivia), Jimmy Jams (last year’s consumption award winners), and Fulmer’s Fat Ass.
Bolded teams are paid for. For bubble teams, next to your name I’ve posted reminders of when your bubble will expire. Now, on to the leaderboard!
