Bobby: The deepest and most intimidating FCT venue, The Brewhouse Cafe, rose up and curb stomped FCT’s game written by Mr. TJ Alexander on Wednesday night in L5P with Fulmer’s Fat Ass (6) leading the way with a tournament high posting of 122. Earlliance (6) are a ‘you’ve gotta be shitting me’ 2nd with 113, and BBvBoE (8) are a ‘W-T-F’ 3rd with 111..
Both of those scores may be all time records for place & show finishes.
Oedipus (5) – 99
Johnny Utah – 98
Muffins (7) – 96**
Gluttons – 84
Chick – 77
Kramerica (5) – 72
Chipmunks – 50
Awesome – 44
Brent: A busy room at Johnny’s was a welcome sight, with 13 mostly full-sized teams in the house, and it provided for an interesting night of trivia. I like to think of myself as a diplomatic host, and that skill was put to the test when a fight nearly broke out in the bar region between a younger team and a drunkard who was sure everyone – and I mean EVERYONE – was cheating (his complaints about cheating began on the first question, which 4 teams got for a total of 6 points). At the time things got heated, we were on question #9 and the team in question had a whopping 16 points. Good sleuthin’, Tex.
Challenged (66) ran the show for most of the night, and staring at bigger score, played a little too boldly on #20 and finished 3rd (ironically after not being bold enough on #10, which they got for 2). This opened the door for non-MTM teams Prestige Worldwide (76) and Cantonese Warriors (72) to rise to the occasion to take first and 2nd. PW are a spunky, smart young team that back in the fall quickly contended with our veterans and proudly boasted they’d win MTM XII, but mysteriously disappeared around December because of school or the plague or something. Nice to see them again.
Ray-Ray (63) had a quiet evening but was in position at the end, only to settle for 4th. Ramrod (54) was short-handed and had an off-week. Coconuts (32) got the first sports question right (which Sports stalwarts Ray-Ray, Lipper, and Ramrod all missed), but that was the extent of their good luck for the evening. Chipper’s Lipper (24) had perhaps their worst night of the tournament and probably wished for more historical trivia, like Monday…
Oh, and in their first games since securing 2nd and 3rd place finishes, respectively, Conway Titty (giggle) and Can’t Wait Till We’re 21 scored 13 and 18 points… Ken Kaniff from Connecticut was specifically accused of cheating throughout the night… and scored 29 points. That’s right, we had two irrational accusations of cheating/unfair play tonight, a fitting end to the bizarre week that was in Canton.
