About Collision Brewing Company
The frigid temperatures could not stop the BEST TURNOUT WE'VE EVER HAD! 10 teams, 54 players tonight at Collision, thank you all for coming! Last week's winners Mim & Maple were high scorers in Round 1 with 6 out of 6, but both Trebek's Rejects and Trivia Trumps Debates set the tone for the night; each converted a successful double-or nothing to jump 9 points clear of the pack, and those two would be neck-and-neck through the final round. In fact those 2 teams would double again in Round 3, along with 4-Way Stop (who took over 3rd place at that stage, 10 points behind the leaders). Fully half the field took a -1 in the Guess Who round (virtually all of them guessing Hugh Grant): Tequila Is Not A Patronus, 4-Way Stop, #momjeans, Cammie Hates The Cello and Limoncello all dropped (seemingly) out of contention after 4 rounds, while Mim & Maple and first-timers Galantine's Gals were high scorers, correctly naming Colin Firth for 8 points. Trebek's Rejects and newcomers Mutha Smucker were high scorers in the Find The Connection round with 9 of a possible 10; the Muthas finished strong, scoring 9, 10, 1nd 9 in the final 3 rounds to finish 4th. A failed double bid by Trivia Trumps Debates left them 9 points behind Trebek's Rejects after 5 rounds; the Rejects scored 10 of a possible 10 (along with Mutha Smucker) to build their lead to 10 over Trivia Trumps Debates, but the table tightened significantly when no fewer than 3 teams successfully doubled for 20 points: Tequila Is Not A Patronus, 4-Way Stop and#momjeans all jumped up in the standings. Incredibly, Tequila Is Not A Patronus hit another double in Round 7; when Trebek's Rejects could only muster 3 out of 10 in the final round, Tequila Is Not A Patronus leapfrogged the field to win; 24 points behind the leaders after 5 rounds, they came all the way back with 40 points in the final 2 rounds to edge Trebek's Rejects by 3 points, with Trivia Trumps Debates finishing 3rd. Perhaps that is justice being done for Tequila, who lost by a point last week after pointing out the quizmaster's error in awarding them 1 point too many; the sportsmanship always on display at Collision (all teams applaud everyone's score each round) was rewarded, big time, tonight.
Thanks to all who turned out tonight; see you next week when #dadbods makes its debut!
