Just before the Thanksgiving holiday we had fifteen teams come to throw down at Hyperion Public on Monday night. As always, the cream rises to the top, and the creamiest this week was Ship of Fools, with doubles in rounds 5 and 6. Squeezing just by Dead Weight for a solid second was 6 Dope Queens, who have not shown up on the leaderboards for some time. It was nice to see them smiling again.

For the drinking round, I decided to veer away from our usual musical drinking round and try something more fitting for the holiday. I wrote every team's names on a piece of paper and had a random person draw one from a hat. The team was Wayne Brady Bunch and they sent up team member Katherine. I instructed Katherine, in the spirit of altruism and giving that really defines Thanksgiving, that she would be the person to pick the winning drinking round team. Just like that, she'd select a group of strangers to get free drinks. She made her way around the room and eventually settled on future victors Ship of Fools (who at the time weren't winning yet), because they were so friendly to her as she walked by. They even offered to buy WBB an appetizer, too! It's not much, but we got to experience just a little bit of human kindness at the tail end of a two week period that has been rife with insanity. So go out there and be good, and do good.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
