    The VIBE:

    It was a good crowd. I didn't spot too many obnoxious first. I also apologized on behalf of the US Men's Soccer team for last week's late start. Alright, let's get at this....

    The GAME:

    Round 1 - Nothing too crazy in the first round. Half of the teams doubled-up for a quick 12!

    Round 2/Pictures - If you have been glued to MSNBC, then you would have aced the Democrats. But since IDGAF, I would have failed.

    Round 3 & 4 - In the third round, we learned that Hydrox is a cookie. I guess. And in the fourth round, we learned that Karen Gillan is way more popular than I had thought she was.

    After four rounds, Intravenous De Milo AND Tea Lizards had perfect scores! So I figured we ALL needed to celebrate with....

    The Drinking Round - I tried a new game - CELEBRITY NET WORTH! One member from each team came up and guessed the net worth of the celebrity...and I eliminated the worst answers as we went down the line. Did you know that Dr. Phil is worth $400 freakin million dollars? I'll repeat that. Actually, I won't. But it's still true.

    Round 5/Connection - Finally things started to shake up. Teams started to separate from the pack as the "airline" clues seemed to stump quite a few....

    Round 6 & 7 - Pretty solid rounds. Most teams did very well with their box of crayons knowledge and mostly terrible 90's pop music culture references. Ok. That was a dig at the Spice Girls. But I can't help if *Nsync was SO MUCH BETTER.

    The RESULTS:

    In 3rd place, nudging out a crowd favorite, with 68 points was Corner Crew...

    The 2nd placers was Mike Pence None the Richer who rocked out 3 near perfect Rounds 5, 6, 7...with 82 points

    But nobody could stop the incredible brain pool of the Tea Lizards who only missed 1 question in Round 5 and decided against a double-up in Round 6....for an impressive 87 points and the GRAND PRIZE CHAMPS of the night!!!!!!

    Next Themed Event: IT's ALWAYS SUNNY...
