MTM XII: Week 1, Wednesday

Brian: Seven teams showed up tonight at Hail Marys in a pretty competitive game. First place and the invite went to Team Darla in their first FCT game ever with 88 points (2 attendance). Buckhead Rednecks grabbed 2nd with 86 (1 att). Old Yeller scooped 3rd with 84 (7 att). #9 finished with 83 (1). Hammered 82 (2). Uncle Dad 60 (11). 1st place loser 48 (3).

TJ: 18 teams packed out Blind Pig for Wednesday trivia. Most notably Robot Monkeys returned to FCT taking the past few months off because of the cold(?). This is a team that has probably played 30 FCT shows and may have placed out of the top 3 twice. Robot Monkeys showed up, won the game, and handed over their check. They claim they only want to play once a week, I tend to believe that that’s all they will do. Here’s how the other qualified/interested scored.

Robot Monkeys(7) 97…9
United(5) 92…6
Jimmy Jams(6) 91…3
Denim Chicken(6) 90
Earlliance(2) 90
8=D(8) 90
5 lb. Sack(8) 88
Phasers(4) 84
Fact Hunt(2) 48

Brent: Ray-Ray gets qualified (102) with a win, and immediately joins MTM… Challenged finishes off a nice week with yet another top 3 performance, taking 2nd with 94. Chipper’s Lipper had an off night (55), maybe their worst in two months. It happens. Coconuts fail to improve their base score or score an invite (68) but did bring some chicks to trivia, something I’m encouraging them to do more often… Nothing else to report from a somewhat sleepy night in Canton, at least as far as tournament action is concerned…

Bobby: The hub of the trivia wheel this year is Brewhouse in L5P and this is perhaps the most difficult room to place. Wednesday Night in Atlanta has always been fierce.

Tonight saw many teams already in the big show playing their 2nd game – some out of need and others looking to drop the early hammer on the competition. One thing is already evident – the hardcore competitors know the deal and you hit the ground at full speed these days or watch the competition disappear on the horizon never to come back into view..

With that in mind, your teams worthy of mention are

1) Kramerica (6) – 111
2) Muffins (7) – 99
3) FFA – (3) – 98
4) Gluttons (5) – 85 (Bubble)
5) Oedipus (6) – 84
6) Purple Headed (5) – 82
7) Fetus (6) – 78
8) BBvBoE (10) – 76
9) Chipmunks (2) – 68
10) Rueben Stutters (6) – 67
11) Dirty Mike (6) – 66
12) Chick filatio (3) – 66

Never forget that when Kramerica shows up, they are a dominant team. They have consistently shown it over the years. Very few people realize how close Kramerica has been to the finals podium at least 5 times. Muffins are looking like an early player for the cumulative, but that will come as no surprise to most. Oedipus has been an answer or two away from glory on both nights, Gluttons are the bubble team after a top 8 finish at last year’s finals, but will they play? My gut says no…
