United are a combination of two (they will tell you 3) very good Athens teams – Tie Dyed Tigers, Fulmer’s Fat Ass (and Yosef)
TDT & FFA used to take turns winning at Taco Mac back in the day and for some reason that I still don’t fully understand, they merged.
The result is the terrifying monster we now call United.
They own Athens trivia and lately they have taken a good bite out of Atlanta’s pie as well. Regardless of their configuration, they seem to win.. Mix ’em, match ’em, big team, little team – makes no difference.
Their trophy case is admirable.
The centerpiece is the World Cup of Trivia which is our ‘match play’ tournament held once every few years. They took down #9 in a 113 to to 109 thriller. And then, just for good measure, they went out in fall of 2011 and defended their title.
They also have two ‘little baby trophies (3rd place at MTM) and a ‘Big Baby’ (2nd)
As good as they have been, during MTM X they emerged as being even more dominant. They stormed through the cumulative like it was a forgone conclusion. They demoralized their opposition and were both lucky AND exceedingly good.
The best is yet to come for United as they look to join Utter Chaos & Buckhead Rednecks on the Full Contact Trivia’s version of Mount Rushmore
