The level of competition was almost as high as the temperatures around Longmont tonight, as the game was closely contested throughout. Brown Chicken, Brown Cow converted a successful double-or-nothing in Round 1 and led wire-to-wire, but they never led by more than the 6 point margin that double gave them. Newcomers Fleetwood Mac Sex Pants and defending champs Trebek's Rejects each scored 8 of a possible 8 in Round 2 to narrow the gap and 4 of the 5 teams scored 5 in Round 3 (Butterbeer Beaches scored 4), resulting in little movement in the standings. (Fortunately for them, Fleetwood Mac Sex Pants correctly answered question 3 with "Fleetwood Mac".) 4 teams also correctly answered the 6-point clue in the Guess What round; a tip of the cap is due Rejected Llamas at this point. First-timers who struggled mightily last week, they returned with a new name (and a KT team number!) and scored 16 of a possible 20 in the first 3 rounds. Sadly, they took a -1 in Round 4 and never recovered.
The "Find The Connection" round was extremely challenging for the players tonight, with Brown Chicken, Brown Cow and Fleetwood Mac Sex Pants pacing the field with 7 of a possible 10 points. ( A side note: tonight produced an exceptionally high number of hilarious[ly wrong] answers, many of which are unfit to print here, but Round 5 produced the topper of the night. One team had deduced the theme [types of squash but had no idea who starred in "Let's Stay Together" so they took a stab with "Butternut McGee". I wish I could share with you some of the attempts at naming Muppet movies.)
Round 6 produced an unlikely statistical anomaly: scores of 9-8-7-6-5 for the teams in places 1-2-3-4-5! Brown Chicken, Brown Cow entered the final round leading Fleetwood Mac Sex Pants by 5 points and Trebek's Rejects by 9, meaning they were not quite in the clear; as it happened they could correctly name "only" 4 movies starring The Muppets but the 2 teams trailing them each scored 6, leaving Brown Chicken, Brown Cow as this week's winners with 50 points. Fleetwood Mac Sex Pants finished 3 points back in 2nd place, with Trebek's Rejects a further 4 points behind in 3rd.
Let's do it again next week, hopefully under cooler conditions!
