In 1991, Eddie Murray threw me a baseball that he had just been throwing around before the game. This is one of at least three mildly interesting Dodgers stories I have.

A far more interesting story though, has to do with the Drinking Round this week, wherein teams were tasked with proving the oft-bandied assertion that the American electorate is for some reason more knowledgeable about government now than ever in recent memory. The metric for such a sounding: number of current US Senators named.

And indeed, all teams impressed with their knowledge, but none more than The Tragically Hip Replacements, whose 27 statesmen and women won them the right to drink a round of refreshments without money exchanging hands. Not only that, but I noticed one of their number, perhaps inspired to create by Bacchus' charge, as he was placing the finishing touches on a sketch that I noticed bore more than a passing resemblance to your humble Quizmaster. Perhaps it isn't meant to be a flattering representation, but I care not's me! <wipes away tear>
