It was a night of love and laughter - and high scores - this week at The Backdoor Bakery and Cafe. Let's begin with the love part. Take a look at that happy couple smiling back atcha in the photo above. That dynamic duo is the brain trust called Team Pudding, who celebrated their 30 year wedding anniversary last night by racking up an impressive 69 points - finishing just one point shy of the winner's circle.
Now, as most trivia aficionados know, the traditional 30 year anniversary gift involves pearls, and the world is clearly an oyster for the Pudding crew. Congratulations, kids!
Our top team for the evening - Hodge Podge - pulled off the rare and impressive feat of answering every question correctly, and doubling every chance they could, winding up the night with the elusive perfect score of 110! Impressive! But it's not like the competition made it easy for 'em.
Take out second place finisher, for example. The Three Caballeros logged a strong 75 points, but could not provide an answer when the quizmaster inquired about a team calling itself The Three Caballeros actually had four members on the team. Curious...and suspicious, wouldn't you agree? We think it has something to do with the Russians.
AT the other end of the spectrum, and trying desperately to add points wherever they could, were Shana Maidela's and Froot Loops, who both declared that they knew the connection for Round 5 after the third question, and insisted that they should be awarded extra points for that. In fact, they insisted they be awarded extra points for all sorts of things, like kibitzing the quizmaster all night long!
To which I say NO! No kibitzing the quizmaster! We gotta maintain decorum!
See y'all next week.
