About Longmont Public House
Tonight was unusual all around. First of all, only two teams showed up; yours truly misses one week and everyone bails! There was some controversy around a couple of answers, which was in every case amicably resolved. And finally, one team jumped out to a big lead, was overtaken and then rallied to win at the end. Mainstays The Kids Under The Table and #momjeans made it an entertaining night. Both teams went for the double-or-nothing right out of the gate, and #momjeans protested (after getting a zero) that there is a Picasso museum in Madrid. They were right; there is a MUSEO Picasso in Madrid, as well as one in Malaga (and there is a Musee Picasso in Paris). But the MUSEU Picasso is in Barcelona. Kids Under The Table were off to an immediate 12-0 lead. Both teams completed a successful double-or-nothing in Round 2, and each scored 5 (of 6) in Round 3. #momjeans correctly answered the 10-point clue in the Guess Who round, and halved their deficit to 6 points; when they successfully converted a double-or-nothing in the very difficult Round 5 theme round (and made 15 points all at once), they went from 6 points behind to 9 points in front. It was at this point that The Kids Under The Table went for broke, converting double-or-nothings in Rounds 6 & 7; #momjeans posted respectable scores of 8 & 9 in those rounds but had to settle for 2nd place as The Kids jumped from -9 to +14 to take the honors.
With only two teams participating, the rounds flew by quickly, allowing for more time to breathe and ponder the questions; that said, we look forward to another full house next week!
