Photos ruin the experience. Or so I tell myself.

Scores were locked in close at the end of round 6. Only a controversial triple or nothing separated the men from the mice (or women from girl mice)

Chris was at a 10/10 grumpiness factor, which has only been matched on maybe one other occasion. Fairly certain Tiffany had nightmares as well.

Cohort won the chili cheese fries round on a phone a friend LOTR question.

E=MC Hammer crushed the Andre question, and somehow stormed into a second place finish. All that time in the nunnery was well spent.

Paddy Cake were torn on which insulting team name to use, and despite my best efforts, managed to pull off the win.

Trouble in Paradise brought all their friends again and snuck into a 3rd place finish despite no math questions.

Lots of drinks, lots of thinks, if you didn't win then your team stinks.

I did not play my all Hootie and The Blowfish music round as I planned. Seriously, if you don't like Hootie and the Blowfish, don't even bother coming to OB's trivia. I literally play them every week and no one has ever mentioned it.

Had a whole bunch of extra hardcore trivia teams in today. Apparently B Dubs is no longer doing trivia on Wednesday nights, so OB's inherited some extra teams. Woop Woop. Boy, they were not expecting such a run for their money. Cerberus won though! It was their first time, and I'm glad that a new team was able to seal their place amongst the OB's winners' roster.

Jana crushed it again as the only server on. Bonnie complained about me playing the Jackson 5, so I had to play The Beatles for the rest of the evening.

Cerberus, the three headed monster, came out on top! They were very enthusiastic for a new team, and if they become regulars, the others will be getting a run for their money.

Cohort second place! How did this happen? No Seth? No Alex? No Tyson? No Problem! We somehow had zero sports questions which undoubtedly played in their favour. It's spelled favor you idiot, this is America, love it or leave it. Sarah is the best, Allison is the best, woop woop, 2 player second place, that's impressive no matter how you spin it.

E=MC Hammer came in third! Even without Mineko, but that's fine because I removed all of the science questions. Right now she's in a nunnery in Detroit, which is the most depressing sentence I've ever written. Third place ain't so shabby though. Well done!

Wallets of El Segundo were controversial from the get go. Chris was having a boys night (wink wink)... But we all agree it was good because his grumpiness would have been at a 10/10. He'll find out why next week. Tiffany got a bonus point for drawing a picture of a fez.

Rachel and Megan were in Tahoe celebrating mama berry's bday. Happy Birthday! Why do they make the recap if they don't show up? Because I love them and I do what I want.

We laughed, we cried, we drank, we answered questions.

Quizmaster Fail.

Wallets of El Segundo won?!

Cohort placed?!

E=MC Hammer won the chili cheese fries?!

Polar Bear Uprising couldn't pull off the three-peat, but came in third so it wasn't a total bust.

Jesse Can't Wait came an unenviable 4th place.

Jana was the only server on and rocked it like a hurricane.

I finished the quiz super early just to spite Rachel.

That's all folks.
