Josh, Matt and Michelle, AKA Prescription Drugs and Falling Luggage honored Billy Mays by erupting in the last round, getting 9 out of 10. That propelled them to the top spot, 8 points ahead of Yank My Doodle, It's a Dandy. The Miami Blades also had a great night, placing third. Ubersmack was two points behind them, followed by Fritzless with a Side of jean and Skirtland. Gawky Domino are next week's theme-pickers, and they are going with M*A*S*H.

Baltimore singer/songwriter and long-time trivia supporter Damion Wolfe will be making a rare Lancaster appearance and will be opening for folk musician Martin Sexton tonight (June 25th) at the Chameleon Club. Damion's set starts around 8 (doors open at 7). If you purchase your tickets at the door, tell them that you're there to see Damion, sine we'd like for him to get some return engagements at the Club. Thanks!

Victor, a friend of Curtis Earth's, is competing in a Food Network recipe contest which will be determined by online votes. His recipe for Smoked Gouda and Chanterelle Mushroom Stuffed Burgers with Sweet Onion and Cherry Relish sounds fantastic, so I threw a vote his way. And you can, too, by going to this page. You can vote once a day for the next two weeks. If he wins, he gets to cook with Bobby Flay. Thanks!
I'm psyched that I'm finally going to get to see the Greatest Funeral Ever perform. You can listen to this band, featuring Ben of the Tony Danza Slap trivia team on keyboards, on their MySpace page. They'll be playing at Bube's this Friday (tonight!), June 19th at 10 P.M. Be there!

Tonight's big news was the return of the Foreplayers, who once again did their patented fourth round flameout. Chicks and Dicks were the eventual winners, beating the B52s by one question. A little farther back was Iranian Election Officals @ 8. Cody joined Karen and Bob to form KBC and they only missed the bronze by one point. Giggles and Friends and Prius tied for fifth, while Jack & Coke and Mets Suck tied for seventh (kind of). We have two sports-related themes for next week: American Bikers and the Tour de France and Philadelphia's pro sports teams.
I think I'm going to go pictureless this week, since I'm in a spartan, minimalist mode (SPARTA!!!) You Can't Fix Stupid picked tonight's theme of the HBO series Big Love and also were promoted to the front of the room, but they landed in their comfort zone, fourth place, right behind The Fresh Nutsack of Bel Air. Quietly Making Noise had a stellar last round and sent Jack-off™ newbie Brian up against Becky of the Toxic Olives for a battle for first place. Becky was victorious. The Koala Farts and Jameson on the Rocks had to leave before the finale, so they did not get to see one of the most spectacular flame-outs in recent history as the Tony Danza Slap whiffed the entire last round. That maneuver did plop them in seventh, however, so they get to pick next week's theme: Zombies! Also, I think we are going to see Drauto von Schnitzelpuss again and there are rumors of the return of Team Discovery Channel. Stay tuned!

It's amazing what a little adrenaline can do. All day Sunday I had been fighting some kind of stomach bug/headachy combo, but it cleared up enough for the gig (then it came raging back after I got home, but that's probably t.m.i.) Nonetheless, it was a great night of trivial combat with Ubersmack returning to the winner's circle. They beat the Real Housewives of Lititz by one question. Of Pixie Stix and Whirlygigs blame their third place finish on not listening to Sue. Skirtland woke up in the fourth round, but couldn't make up for the other three. Andy Rooney's Eyebrows Are Predicting a Harsh Winter tied with the Lap Caps for fifth and the Super Karate Monkey Twin Roses get to pick next week's theme: historic fires of the U.S. So bring a pyrophiliac next Sunday.

The defending champs Jim's Team (half of the team is in the above pic) was once again the champions of early morning trivia at the Relay for Life. They beat the Cancer Kickers by one mere point, but it was good enough to win them Olive Garden gift certificates. The Kickers were one question ahead of the Otterbein Shooting Stars, who were one point ahead of the Rowdy Rankins (actual the Rowdy Rankin, singular). The Thinkers, Dancing in the Streets and The Monkey Bunch were a little farther back. And, proving that there is no nepotism in the land of trivia, my cousins' team, Anita Cure, came in dead last.
I'd like to thank the Lancaster Relay for having me for the fifth year in a row and ask everyone to help support the work of the American Cancer Society as they combat this insidious disease that touches everyone.

Tonight's highlight was a tie-breaker between Mary Lynn and Karen. Both were virgins in encounters with Captain Jack, but Karen prevailed, so KB took the silver and the B52s the bronze. The gold went to The Skeletons in David Carradine's Closet (once again ripping their name from the headlines). Chicx and Dix was fourth and Giggles and friends fifth. Trivia at 8 missed theme choice by two points to D&M, who are going with Nicktoons for next week.

...it's Tuesday Night!!! We enjoyed several SNL questions tonight, as I've Got Your Nutsack Right Here, Trebek blazed through the last round to win the night. Quietly Making Noise, The Return returned after a couple of week's absence to claim second, followed by The Toxic Olives Featuring Birthday Girl Laura in third. TDS was fourth and the newly renamed When News Breaks, We Fix It was fifth. There was a tie for sixth between Prius and You Can't Fix Stupid, but since Prius can't make next week, theme choice once again goes to Stupid. And they want to spread Big Love around.
