Monday night I was invited to play at a Multiple Sclerosis Association charity benefit trivia show at York's Harp and Fiddle Restaurant. Jeopardy whiz-kid Brad Rutter was auctioned off each round as a fund-raiser. The event raised over $1,600! My former TV Guide compatriot Randy, his wife Lauren, his sister Lisa Lisa and I were a force to be reckoned with, missing first place by a mere one point. Of course, it helped that we successfully outbid everyone for Brad's help for the last round (out of 10 rounds). Brad was a great sport, and maybe we can get him to do a charity event in the future.
To celebrate the visit of original trivia host Curt Earth and the wondrous Monica Stone, Hot Tub Jimmy hosted Earth Bash 2005 at his cabin in southern Lancaster County. It had horseshoes, badminton, karaoke, some fireworks and, of course, trivia. Here we see Curt attempting to use his cell phone during Billy "Buddha-Belly" Warmth's impromptu show. More pix will be available on Curtis' blog.
After a long day and night of festivities, the guests of honor and the host retired for the evening. They missed the arrival of Bube's owners Sam and Jan Allen at 2 A.M., who were surprised to find only Justin, Damion and Chris still awake.
You thought the big sports story of the weekend was Lance's record-breaking seventh victory? Wrong! It was my toe-breaking during the Earth Bash 2005 Badminton Tournament. Who knew that badminton was a full-contact sport. Luckily, it was all worth it as Bruiser and I came from behind to best Dobbs and Suzanne.

Some new teams mixed it up with the old teams as Curtis Earth did a homecoming show at Bubes. Due to the refinishing of the Bottling Works floors, the event was held upstairs in Alois'. Here, Jason demonstrates his steely eyeball-technique that led him to tie with the equally tenacious Fritz.

Important news: next Tusday night (July 19th) we welcome back the one-ond-only original Trivia Host, Curtis Earth back to Bube's. Due to floor refinishing, the Bottling Works (where we normally have the show) will be closed, so we will move the show into the Biergarden. If it is too sweltering hot, then the show will be upstairs in Alois. As always, you never know what to expect at the show, so we'll play it by ear.

Once again I turned over the camera to another photojournalist. Tonight it was Seth (above) of the Toxic Olives turn. At first he didn't want to get out of his seat, but soon he was everywhere, hanging from the rafters and invading the restrooms. Thanks, Seth, for a new view of the game!
Speaking of which, the Fool Monkey came from behind to claim first, followed by Out of the Vortex and Dead Bear Baby in a Jar. The Stonecutters had to settle for fourth, but got to choose next week's themes: '80s pop and hockey.
