Consider us the halftime show at Hyperion Public, as the Broncos and the Chargers split right at 9 just as we were starting.  Veggie Scrambles at last took their first ever victory, AND took the drinking round as well!  An impressive feat to say the least.  Hot on their heels all night was Hurricane 9/11 feat. Wolf Blitzer, scoring just a single point behind them.

But.  But.  But.  The true heroes of the night was far and beyond Dead Weight, who provided the funniest set of answers I have ever received.  The round 7 question was, What were Michael Jackson's 10 solo albums?  They started off correctly, but soon dropped off into a series of answers that I read aloud to the entire bar, and had everyone rolling.  I've included the picture above for verification, but I'm going to write them in here as well.

  1. Thriller
  2. Bad
  3. Black & White
  4. Michael
  5. Jackson
  6. Now That's What I Call Michael Jackson
  7. Thriller 2
  8. Still Jackson
  9. 2 Michael 2 Jackson
  10. Michael Jackson Tokyo Drift

So good.  I'm not lying when I say I have this answer sheet put up on my fridge at home.

Night after night, week after week, teams show up to do their best armed only with a pen and knowledge and courage that is screwed to the deck.  After all, what is trivia but a fundamental test of your memory and critical thinking skills?  It cuts right to the core of who you are as a person.  If you tell a person, "Oh I'm bad at trivia," are you not saying that you just don't want to/like to remember things?  Or care about how the collective consciousness of human experience is built around you in a assembly of facts?  Every little thing just boils down to what we as a species know.  I'm saying all of this because I so greatly admire each person who comes out to play trivia every week, knowing that they are exposing their vulnerabilities as people because other teams will judge them literally if they are smart or not.  It takes bravery to do it.  I think every single person should be commended who participates, regardless of how the place or perform, because it requires genuine courage to show how much or how little you know.  Or are willing to admit you know (Real Housewives TV iterations).  Cheers to you, Trivia Players!

Last night Fake News obliterated the competition by taking an early lead and sticking to it.  Not to be discouraged, team after team attempted to double down - probably more failed doubles than I have ever seen in a single night.  But that is what is great about trivia nights: when the going gets tough, the teams desperately double down in a Hail Mary attempt to stay in the game.  I Could Go On nabbed the drinking round by a sliver of a point, and Never Been Brissed coasted easily into second place.  All in all, it was once again a wonderful success at trivia once again at Hyperion Public!

What a huge showing of teams at Hyperion Public last night!  It felt like a million teams but it was probably like 875,000 at best.  Skin Weasels returned after a bit of a hiatus only to stomp the competition.  Little Lebowski's, sitting in the booth right next to them, were neck and neck the entire time but could not surpass the might of the Weasel.  They even won the drinking round!  When the leading team wins the drinking round, no one is happy.  That's why we all sang karaoke to Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler.  It was, after all, an eclipse!
