Bobby’s commentary: Trivia Bowl VI was held @ Brewhouse in Avondale with the usual compliment of football savvy teams.
Defending champs Alliance and former champs Bobby’sTattooSucks.com helped comprise a stout field which included former World Champions #9 and Muffins.
The field got out to a racing start that saw half the field with 20 or more points at the end of the 1st quarter.
The 2nd quarter pared scores down a touch, but not much. Alliance – 46, Chick Filatio – 42, #9 & Bobby Brown – 39.
The game turned for Chick on the #15 fight songs bonus and they fizzled afterward. #9 was able to pull to within a field goal of Alliance to start the 4th qtr, and Bobby Brown had manged to slog through the loss of a 7 point bid in the 2nd qtr to get into 3rd place. Fulmer’s Fat Ass had flown beneath the radar much of the night to be within 6 of 3rd @ 57 and in spite of the disastrous #15, Chick was a point out of the money @ 62.
The 4th qtr saw Alliance put the hammer down and run away and hide, Fulmer took advantage of a correct #20 to jump into 2nd, and #9 wisely and with great discipline managed to hold onto 3rd place with a 2 point bid.
Trivia Bowl IV champs BTS.c came within an eyelash of 3rd, falling 2 points short of #9. BBv.BoE tossed another large bid away and that proved too much, finishing tied with Muffins @ 65.
Pabst Playboys played brilliantly in spots, but suffered their usual 2nd guessing curse to finish well back and Donkey Balls likewise nailed some of the more difficult queries and somehow managed to miss enough of the easy ones to finish solidly adrift of the top 3.
Ray-Ray’s Partay was under-represented and wound up drinking the last place pitcher.
