Ending Strong

With the last day of the month these teams came out strong over at JP's. It wasn't clear who would win the early rounds with series of ties one right after the next. In the first round we had a three way tie with 7 points a piece going to Whiskey Buisness, How About Them Bruins, and The Most Popular Girls in School. The next round wasn't any easier although the race for second got cut to a two way tie with both How About Them Bruins, and 16 oz Curlers having 14 pts a piece, we still had a tie for third place with 12 pts going to both Whiskey Business, and Jolly Good. In round 3 we finally had our first place contenders How About Them Bruins totaling 26 points but still having Whiskey Business, and Jolly Good just behind them tied for second with 24 points a piece. Round 4 was when Jolly Good made their stride with their immense knowledge of the Cape Crusader (Batman) in the Guess Who round and grabbing 1st place. They jumped ahead in round 5 doubling up their points and stretching their lead to 52 points which was a 7 point cushion against the team closest to them. They continued this lead all the way to end and ended up becoming our Kings and Queens of Trivia. But if your like me and love a good underdog story, the real tale of triumph here was about a team who was not yet mentioned. That would be the Turd Scooters who started off in last place with 4 points and didn't make any strides until Round 6 where they grabbed their first top three ranked positions in the game and topped every team and doubled up the final round 7 when it came down to knowing Comedic Genius' Mel Brooks discography. A great reminder to its not how you start, but how you finish. Hopefully they comeback stronger next week to top our reigning champs, Jolly Good!
