Brent: MTM teams get shut out of performance pts for the first time of the tourney, with top honors going to Cousins with Benefits, Cantonese Warriors, and Purdy Nerdy Dirty Dogs…
Ray-Ray – 67
#9 – 56
Coconuts – 36
And that’s all… (love you, Challenged – 39)…
Bobby: As always, rain cuts Brewhouse’s total head count by 20% or so as walk in traffic is virtually non-existent, so it was up to tournament teams to fill the breach. On a night when the Etta James crystal made her 1st appearance at home 13 total teams were in the house, 8 of them of the MTMXII variety.
BBvBoE (6) continue their steady play and march to a 100 ftw. Muffins (6) collect a sneaky 2nd w/ 84, and FFA (6) back into a 3rd -78
Ear (2) – 74
Kram (5) – 71
Fetus (4) – 58
United (1) – 44
Oedipus (1) – 15
Big weekend coming up.. Etta on Friday w/ the after party @ The Elder Tree Public House. Anyone needing a bed is more than welcome to crash @ the Casa de Kramerica which is located roughly 2 miles from the Elder..
TJ: Guy-What do you mean by Macintosh?
Me-I mean Macintosh, dude.
Guy-But, like room size or personal?
Me-I mean Macintosh, dude.
Guy-C’mon man, just tell me which one you are talking about.
Me-I’m talking about the Macintosh, dude.
Guy-Do you not want us to win?
Guy-If you have to look it up that’s cool. Just tell me which one you are talking about when you’re done.
Me-OK *picks up phone and types for a minute, show Guy my phone which now reads “I’m talking about the Macintosh”
Guy-You’re a dick, here (hands me an 8 point bid on 1983)
*TJ IS HAPPY”
Funniest moment of the night with 2nd place going to Connie’s answer of “RKO Speedwagon” and 3rd going to 8=D’s answer of “Ram Jam Balamam,” neither of which got points…I become more like Bobby every show. On an important note, 5 lb. Sack (a regular that hasn’t missed a game in over a year), is still looking for the last spot in MTM. When I look down after 14 and see they are 8 points ahead of 2nd place I walk over and tell them to get their cash ready. I suppose the $ distracted them from what I was playing because they went 0 for 4 on 15 and find themselves in a tie for 3rd. The three teams ahead of them are all of the tourney variety, I let them know and all is well. At the 2 minute warning the scores read:
5 lb. Sack(wants to give me $100):69
The first answer I receive is “Rome,” a correct 20 point bid from 5 lb. Sack. They need one team to miss and they are in and playing on Super Saturday. The last answer I get is from Buttcheeks. They have crossed out Paris, then Versailles, and have bid 20 on Rome. The first exciting moment from Blind Pig West in a long time.
Don’t forget! Elder Tree next Tuesday at 8:00. Everything counts toward tournament totals so if you are Atlanta based come post some numbers!
Darby: Interesting night at Hail Mary that actually serves as a reminder to tournament teams. Make sure your scribe accurately hears and answers what you tell him or her to put on the sheet. Tonight Turtles & Stuff were hating me from question 13 on because someone put Daniel Hawthorne. They however prevailed on question 20 and denied first place bonus points for tournament teams with a 95. Old Yeller (6) scored 89 and took 2nd. #9 (2) leapfrogs several teams and earn 3rd with 86. Experience (4) leading going into question 20 finishes out of the Top 3 with 77. Fact Hunt (2) posts a 51. Fact Hunt did point out they were not awarded their performance points for last week’s 3rd place and that will be investigated by the FCT Official Statistician.
Clint: yunited (6) win with 92, kittens (9) 2nd with 84, rash (2) 3rd with 76, phasers (5) with 75
