About Collision Brewing Company
Numbers were up again this week, with a full house at Collision Brewing; I brought a large bottle of hand sanitizer to ensure a safe AND fun night. No fewer than 3 teams scored 6 out of 6 in Round 1: #momjeans, Motha Smucker & Tequila Is Not A Patronus. Motha Smucker followed that with 7 in the Picture Round to lead by 1 point after 2 rounds over those two teams as well as Trebek's Rejects (who also scored 7). #momjeans and Motha Smucker each tallied 6 of a possible 6 in Round 3 while the Rejects, Motha Smucker and Mim & Maple each scored 5; after 3 rounds, Motha Smucker led#momjeans by a point and Trebek's Rejects and Tequila Is Not A Patronus by 2. Trebek's Rejects and Tequila Is Not A Patronus were high scorers in the Guess Who round, each correctly answering for 8 points.; Limoncello were unable to answer and the resulting zero dropped them out of the running for the night. Grace Rules (in the form of the Quizmaster's wife), agonized over finding the name in question after being subjected to countless hours of The Simpsons; just as she was handing in a guess, she snatched her form back, yelling "FLANDERS!, and garnered 2 points.
With 4 teams bunched within 4 points entering Round 5, Trebek's Rejects and #momjeans made their move by successfully converting the evening's first double-or-nothing bid; Squid Inferno and Motha Smucker responded by successfully doubling in Round 6 to ensure an exciting finish. After 6 rounds, #momjeans (10 out of 10 in Round 6) had 56 points, Trebek's Rejects had 55, and Motha Smucker had 51; Squid Inferno's double vaulted them into 4th place with 45. In Round 7 Trebek's Rejects scored 5 of a possible 10, only to see #momjeans match that score to win by a single point; Squid Inferno tallied 9 points but Motha Smucker's 7 was enough to secure 3rd place.
(Scorer's note: Squid Inferno was awarded a retroactive point for their answer "Zesta" in Round 5 in response to the question about a Keebler product "similar to saltines". While "Club Cracker" was the answer sought (and the one which fit the golf theme), Zesta is the Keebler cracker which (on Keebler's website) is identified with the word "saltine". Though it was not the answer we were looking for, it is technically NOT wrong and I therefore gave them the point.)
It was nice to have everyone back again, I hope to see you all again next week!!
