About Longmont Public House
Tonight started with a full complement of 6 teams but the newcomers dropped out gradually, leaving a trio of regulars to compete for the honors. Sharks gave it up after a 2 in Round 1 (before I could even take their picture!), whereas Gilbert's Grape had to leave after 3 rounds and DFW's quit after a -1 in the Guess Who round. The 3 returning teams "Band Of Bezonians, Brown Chicken Brown Cow and #momjeans) each started well, with the first 2 netting 5 points in Round 1 and #momjeans scoring 4. But the Bezonians and Brown Chicken pulled away quickly, each hitting successful double-or-nothing tries in Rounds 2 & 3. When #momjeans missed on a double attempt in Round 3, thr game became a 2-team race between Band Of Bezonians and Brown Chicken, Brown Cow (the 2 teams had identical scores of 5, 16 and 12 points in the first 3 rounds). When Brown Chicken scored 6 in the Guess Whoo round (all others scored -1), they took a 7-point lead into Round 5; Band Of Bezonians passed them with a successful double-or-nothing while Brown Chicken (and #momjeans) got 9 out of 10.*
Bezonians led Brown Chicken by 4 points after 5 rounds, and that remained unchanged after each scored 9 out of 10 in the Find The Connection round. Band Of Bezonians hit another double while Brown Chicken correctly answered 9 out of 10 to make the final margin a deceptive 15 points. Band Of Bezonians, in their 2nd game, won going away; Brown Chicken, Brown Cow and #momjeans took the other "podium spots". All teams applauded each other to cap off a fun and friendly night. See you next week!
There was some controversy around 2 of the questions, resolved amicably in all cases. Fortunately it had no direct bearing on the results.
