    Q: What is Forrest Gump's Wifi Password?
    A: 1Forrest1

    Gather round, my friends, and I'll tell you the tragic story of Mike Pence None The Richer, and their struggle to execute an effective double-or-nothing strategy this week at Golden Road Brewery in Glendale.

    The story begins with its conclusion: MPNTR - an accomplished team that had performed very strongly in the past - racked up a respectable 56 points 6th place in a field of 19 teams. That's pretty good, right!? Sure it is! But oh! What might have been...

    In the first round, the Pencers were pensive, and despite answering all question correctly, opted against attempting the double. That's a potential-point-loss (PPL) of 6 points!

    In similar fashion, they went eight-for-eight in the round two picture round, but again, went with the safe, cautious approach and didn't double. PPL - 8 points. But then, a glimmer of hope! They doubled successfully in round three, scoring the full 12 points! Huzzah!

    Then, in round four, MPNTR was the only team to hit it with the first clue! TEN POINTS more, and a nice come-from-behind win seemed to be in the works. But then, disaster! On both round 5 and 6 - you guessed it! Perfectly correct answers but no doubles on either! PPL of 10+10=20! OMG!

    Then, to put it all into sharp focus and put it in perspective, they doubled in round 7 - and got stung with an incorrect answer! No points! They finished 31 points behind the night's winner, Those People. And if you add up the PPLs...well...nevermind, Mike. There's always next week!
