I still can't believe they built an Old Chicago that holds over 2,000 people, but I counted last night, and I'm sure there were at least 2,100 trivia players. It's just nuts at Old Chi-town in the Valley of Apples. If you want to compete with the finest trivia minds that Minnesota has to offer, there's not a better option. Need more enticing? Well, that's easy. All trivia players are allotted at least 2 minutes of forced conversation with yours truly. Yeah. Two minutes of conversational bliss with me! No eye contact though...I'm not into that.
What I am into, however, is this weeks winning team: 2nd Sucks! These guys barely squeaked out a win with a total score of 44 points - very impressive. After having one of my six personal assistants hand deliver their prize, it was time to address second place, and it wasn't as clear cut: We had a saucy two-way tie for second, and things were gonna get weird. In an unlikely turn, team Grumpy Old Men found time to rack up 43 points, even though they spent the majority of the night falsely accusing Pink Eyed Petes of cheating. Not to be out done, and feeling lucky because Grumpy Old Men didn't catch them cheating, team The Count of Monty Chode slid through the finish line with 43 points of their own! Both teams met in the sudden death round, Grumpy Old Men answered first (out loud) and that sealed the second place finish for The Count of Monty Chode! Amazing stuff, as always, at O.C.A.V.
First: 2nd Sucks! - 44
Second: The Count of Monty Chode - 43.5
Third: Grumpy Old Men - 43
