Today was my cat's 2nd birthday, so it was kind of a bummer I had to leave him so soon to host King Trivia, but seeing some new and familiar faces having a wonderful time didn't make it seem like such a bummer after all! (Yes, I'm aware of how crazy this statement makes me look. Lay thine eyes upon my field of cares, and see that I hath none to reap.)
While most teams did excellent on their general knowledge and Super Mario Kart characters, wine connections and Sterling K. Brown were just about everyone's Kryptonite. Lakers, Team R&R, and Broadway Booties gave it their all, but were lacking in wine obsessions and serious O faces.
Let The Wookie Win, Party of One, Mr. Poopybutthole, and Meeseeks and Destroy nearly tied it all up by Round 5, and it was a serious fight to see who would emerge as top dog. Let The Wookie Win doubled down on their Super Mario Kart players, only to be betrayed by that dastardly Wario. Instead, the only successful double down for that round went to Master Idiots, still barely keeping them out of reach of a TGI Fridays gift card. Party of One, however, SHOULD have trusted their gut and doubled down, but their lack of confidence in the original 8 gave Mr. Poopybutthole a blue shell to successfully slide into the first place lead.
Meeseeks and Destroy also had anything BUT a lousy night -- they took home the third place prize AND a free appetizer/dessert coupon for having the best pickup line: "How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice!" (Is it just me, or are G-rated pickup lines so much harder to come by, yet are so much more effective?)
