I don't have my notes with me, so this is from memory: Chix and Dix led the way until a disastrous fourth round. We're Here for the Beer split into two camps, the Dave and Frank group took second and the Steve and Bob camp took fourth (choosing board games and Everybody Loves Raymond as next week's themes). It looked like it Gene was going to be the one-man Posse until Kirk joined him -- and they came in third! And it was Room 2, with former Richmond native Gerry that took the gold.

It was an evening of new friends and returning old ones as we welcomed back Stephen Hawking's Institute of Pop-Locking and Crip Walking and Dead Bear Baby in A Jar and Mike's Grandma's Coat (Jen was sporting the fur coat that they had won at trivia a while back). We also introduced a new mascot, tentatively named Delores Vandersnatch (pic to come). The Nutsacks were so huge that they broke into the left and the right and they won first and second place. Josiah's wife saved the day, giving their side of the sack victory. Tesla came in third and Team Discovery Channel's three week winning streak came to an end as they claimed fourth (Besting a new team, the Peronies by a mere one point). Their picks for next week's themes: Bob Dylan and muscular-skeletal anatomy. And the high (or to some, low) point of the evening was my rousing rendition of C310inch's immortal classic "If I Only Had a Dick."

If the idea of hearing me as a certain golden android singing "If I Only Had a Dick" appeals to you, then come on out tonight (Monday, Dec. 5th) to Harrisburg's Appalachian Brewing Company at 7 P.M. My friend Randy Gross wrote two adult comedies which a group of radio personalities will be performing. It's an old-fashioned staged radio play/reading held upstairs in ABC's Abbey bar. It's a fundraiser for local food banks, which have been depleted by all the disasters this year. Please bring a canned good, too.

Another rollercoaster night, with Chicks and Dicks squeaking by Stevie Nick's biggest fans, We're Here for the Beer. The Posse also squeaked by the terrific twosome of Nix Lix, who chose microbrews and imported beer and the TV show "Cheers" as their themes for next week.
Gerry was right! The borough of Staten Island was known as the borough of Richmond, up until 1975. (And Iraq was once known as Babylon).
