Fodder for Future Trivia Questions

Greg from the Prius team sent me this link to the 100 greatest movie lines of all time. I can see some of these showing up in future shows.

No Trivia Tuesday at Bube's or Wednesday at the VFW!

Due to the impending snowstorm, there will be no trivia tonight at Bube's and also no trivia tomorrow night at the VFW. Enjoy your week off and rest your brain!

VFW: Olympic Competition

I felt strangely naked without my podium (see below for the tragic story), but the show went on. The B52s had a last round surge and tied with the Rex Ryan Salute, so we had a Captain Jack-off™ between Sheila and Matt with Sheila the winner. K decided to let B play on her team, so K-B took the bronze. The Noids and the Scranton Miners tied for fourth while D and M took sixth. There was a tie between 2H+2 and Shambles so we'll have two themes: Nintendo and gangster rap. (Two themes which I can safely say we've never had at the VFW).

Bube's: The Return of Precipitation Tuesday

The threat of snow could not stop the trivia faithful as a full house did battle. The Toxic Olives emerged victorious, one question ahead of the Planeteers (who had their highest placing to date). T-Borg, a team of visiting businessmen, came in third. 3 Parts Hate, 1 Parts Late and a Dash of Raging Masculinity - Nutsacktinis brought along Nathan's brother James and placed fourth. Oily Discharge made their annual trek from parts unknown and placed fifth, six points ahead of One Ball Paul and the Rhythm Disciples. Theme choice goes to the Fizzing Whizbees and Soren. Soren can't make it next week, so we might go with host's choice (depending on how creative I feel) and the Whizbee's choice of snakes.

It began snowing during the show and we had a casualty: my podium! I had it propped up against the side of the car while I was loading the trunk and it slipped on the snow and broke off a chunk. I think it's reparable, though, so it should be back in action next week. Whew!
