I was on the phone Monday with a very pleasant woman named April. For a call to a dreaded call center (Direct TV, for the record), it was quite enjoyable. In the course of our call, she inquired about our weather. I first asked where she was from, and she told me that she was from Florida. I laughed and replied that it was really nice and warm for us, it was 40 degrees! She shuddered and exclaimed, "That's freezing!"
I relate this to remind you to keep some perspective in life. Such as...
Our Learn Some Shit winners with, well, I won't tell you how many points they had, but it wasn't very many -- here's The Fluffernutters or Sticky Elbows or Cancellation Fees.
Does it really matter how many points you score if you're having a good time, drinking good beer and eating good food? I submit that it does not. Besides, this group got o $10 gift card to Half Price Books! Pretty good consolation prize, don't you think?
After breaking a tie (and using two tiebreakers to do it, a fact that aggrieved me to no end), in third place, with 43 points, here's Xtreme Grape.
This group are refugees from another Monday night quiz, and I won't let on which one. They told me before we started that they always finished 3rd, and, verily, their prophesy came to pass. I hope you enjoyed your time here enough to come back and climb the ladder all the way to first!
The team that broke the tie in their favor and finished second with 43 points is Just the Bear.
A very uninspired team name this week, but who am I to judge? Perspective, people. A very good job by both the runners-up this week.
In first place, with a remarkable 49 points, here's Just the Tip, Just to See How it Feels!
These folks shed their mounting frustration and exploded in a veritable... let's just say that they did really well this week. Sometimes you get nothing but curveballs and changeups and sometimes you get 86 mph fastballs all day. I guess I was throwing batting practice to them -- but even in batting practice, you still have to get your wood on the ball! Great job.
We'll see you next week!
