No crazy rain is going to stop the denizens of Hyperion Public from coming out and enjoying their trivia. The roads might be washed away, but their love of showing off useless facts has stood the battering weather, and the people returned in droves to participate.

The lead shifted back and forth throughout the night, but in the end it was Fifth Place or Bust who busted out of fifth and into first with two solid doubles in a row. Just behind them and the winners of a tie-breaker was Boner Tambourine (they had neither boners nor tambourines) who edged out Ship of Fools by a narrow margin. The drinking round was stolen by Trivia Newton John and their impressive Disney know-how.

But the real hero of the night was once again my assistant Madeline, who was my official King Trivia Ring Girl(TM). For each round, she walked around the bar with the number held high, so that the teams participating knew just where we were, and each time she was met with thunderous applause. And then she was there to present the winning teams with their plunder. I couldn't have done it without Madeline - and she doesn't even turn eight for another month!

Another night of trivia at Hyperion Public on Monday went off without a hitch. These thirteen teams came to show off their big ass brains, but only Solemn Bellydancers had the biggest brain. Although Allagash Pants were close behind, they could not compete with their rivals that night. Dead Weight showcased their drinking round prowess, securing a free round of beverages for themselves, and side glances from the surrounding tables. All in all, a fun night!

Despite the rain, despite the cold, and despite the crushing loss of the Rams, the faithful players at Hyperion Public still came to give their very best at trivia Monday night. The once dominant Little Lebowski's Urban Achievers seemed to have fractured and split in twain, now with PhDeez Nuts carrying the first place torch and Slaughter Maroon 5 following close behind in their footsteps. Sure, it's discouraging to everyone else in the bar that what was once a single team is now the two teams dominating the top spots, but that just means they all have to try a little harder, doesn't it?

As for the drinking round, the teams were instructed to write haikus tangentially related to the Superbowl, and I picked my favorites. Here's third place by The L Word Reboot:

Adam Levine sucks

But we already knew that

Needed Lesbians

Second place goes to Periodic Element of Surprise:

I have a secret:

I hear players wear helmets

to keep from kissing 🙂

And first place goes to an incredibly dark but remarkably well metered haiku, courtesy of The Crescent Rolls:

Chronic traumatic

Encephalopathy means

You lose who you are.

Arguably the most poignant haiku I've ever read, and certainly deserving of first place, despite the fact that it forced the room to fall silent upon reading it. Cheers to you, Crescent Rolls!
