You know what I call 50% growth week on week in competing teams? A growing trivia night juggernaut on Mondays at Rocco's in Culver City.

You know the old adage -- sometimes how you finish a game, even if you don't can spark momentum leading into the next? Well...something was sparked last Monday, June 11th. After a couple of weeks finishing out of first (but never out of the money)Mr. T Says Curling is Cool...Fool! nailed all 10 Olympic decathlon events, successfully doubled and pulled themselves into a 3rd place finish. They finished that game on first, and carried that into Monday night. A quiet, but solid round led to getting 31 of the next 35 questions correct - and a championship night without the use of a single double or nothing. Impressive.

Also happening on Mondays at Rocco's? A budding trivia rivaly, as rolling into second was perennial contenders Itty Bitty Ditty. Now we just need Paddington Kills to resurface and our trio of trivia world beaters can have a cage match for the ages next Monday.

Not to be denied is Area 51 -- our longest distance traveling team, did not miss out on Round 1 this time, and found themselves the proud owners of 20 Rocco's bucks.

Last minute shouts to Silver Bottoms. Joining in round 4 once they discovered you had to play to be eligible for the free round of drinks, what start as half-hearted involvement for a beer became full focus, and nearly found their way to a 5th place finish... also impressive.

Sometimes, the story is about second place. Not to minimize the trivia accomplishments of Paddington Kills - wire to wire wins are nothing to sneeze at.

But, when the decathletes of trivia show their unbending knowledge of Olympic decathlon events, doubling their score and jumping to a last round, last minute, return your pen second place finish -- Mr. T Says Curling is Cool.... Fool deserves special accommodation - so that's what they're getting.

Not to be unmentioned, the returning Sad Rockets, perhaps waiting until the basketball season finished up so they felt the strength to enter a sports bar once again.

It was Dan vs. Dave all over again. Dan might've won again, but this time Dave O'Brien clearly qualified for the olympics, and took home the silver medal.

Right place. Right time. We could be talking geography. We could be talking sports knowledge. We could be talking when to check that little box next to double or nothing.

A pair of regulars threatened to dominate Monday night at King Trivia. But a game that had a new team join every round, including 7.... saw the upstarts who happened to be sitting on the bar as this golden voice came over the microphone, sitting in 3rd heading into the final round used their knowledge of the NFL to forge a last second tie with Paddington Kills

Then the right place, right time comes down to putting 4 digits on a paper, but when you needed to write 5, only your tie-breaking competitor uses a lower number, you really don't...and voila we have a King Trivia Monday night Rocco's champ.

And this is how a little game, on a quiet night in Culver City becomes something bigger...
