It was a beautiful, balmy, picture-perfect mid-summer's evening out on the Pitfire patio last night. Of course, it wasn't mid-summer at all! It was autumn, and the "cool night air" was 143 degrees in the shade, and global warming is real, and WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!

Oops, Sorry. Got a little carried away there. Back to the recap!

Last night's winners were a pair of pugilistic puzzle solvers that go by the name Mystery Science Theater 3000. Take a look  at photo #2 (just after the shot of the big, burning sun that will soon melt our ice caps and KILL US ALL!!) to get a good look at Pat and Kara.

Kara's the brains of the outfit, I suspect, after I overheard her saying, "I TOLD you it was OMAN!" right after Round 2 answers were announced. Oh! Man! Anyway, they won the night fair and square over the Detective Trivia Benson folks, who expressed their displeasure quite clearly in the #6 photo!

A BIG shout out to Gaby, Kelsey, Don, Sarah and Elliott - collectively known as Westeros Baptist Church. These guys are one of our strongest teams, and stand tall in our Tournament Rankings, though they finished fourth in last night's contest.

So, to review...what country shares its border with Saudi Arabia and Yemen?
I told you! It's Oman! Right, Kara!?

See ya out on the patio next week!
