Bobby: 10 teams at the Monkey Barrel, and we witnessed an auspicious achievement by Scott of Denim Chicken as he joins the solo victor’s club with a TOURNAMENT win of 87. #9 (6) fly under the radar for most of the night and snipe 2nd w/ 82, and Earlliance’s Chris runs solo for a 3rd of 81. Also, Playboys (6) 79, JJ (5) 72 after running in front almost all night, and Hawaiian Pineapples let their bubble burst. No new invitations were extended.
Scott’s achievement will now be listed in the Full Contact Trivia Record Book, as he is the 7th confirmed solo winner (others are still under review). Well done, sir!
Brent: 10 teams at Bedoe’s, 7 of which were MTM teams or, in the case of Chipper’s Lipper, looking for an invite. Buckhead Rednecks and a rarely full-strength Migrating Coconuts dominated most of the evening, with Lipper hanging around 3rd. Of course, this has been Lipper’s MO for the last few weeks – play top 3 for most of the game, blow it on #20… At the score update prior to #20, I announce scores, and I make note that Chipper’s Lipper has a 25 point lead over the next un-invited team, meaning they could basically take a knee on question 20 if they want to guarantee themselves an invite. Instead, the youngest team in the house turns in a correct 20 point answer on a tough Cold War question to win not only the invite, but the game and 9 performance points as well (90). Outstanding! It’s moves like that that will win you a tournament some day. Keep it up. Rednecks (68) and Coconuts (71) both miss #20, which opened the door for Ray-Ray (81) to take a scrappy 2nd after a quiet night. Say Car Ramrod takes 3rd (72) with a 4 point correct answer on #20 (4 pts – WTF?). They are just finding out this – I had incorrectly given Coconuts credit for one answer they didn’t get right, and thanks to a single Coconut migrating to the DJ stand after trivia to let me know (much to the chagrin of his teammates, lol), Ramrod is now credited with the 3 performance points they earned…
In tournament news, Say Car Ramrod entered MTM, becoming team #25, and Chipper’s Lipper makes their long-awaited debut on the leaderboard, with a fresh invitation. Lipper are expected to enter and become team #26 on Wednesday… This thing’s filling up, folks, and tonight there’s trivia in every team’s neck of the woods… B8Shaq (numerous Sports Medals at MTM) & T2RB (3rd place at last year’s finals) are two names conspicuously missing from the leaderboard, and there happens to be an Athens game this evening…
