Quiz #300! After spending the last 300 Wednesday nights at Sports Harbour, This was our very last quiz for this venue, as it has been sold. A bittersweet night for me, as I will miss this place and all the teams that I have had the pleasure to meet over the years, yet was overwhelmed at the turnout for our final night! A couple teams brought cakes! (So much for losing 40 pounds last year. Ha!)

The quiz itself was an epic battle for two teams. Mr. Bottemly's Jacket & The Final Kendown. These two teams led with exact same score for the first 4 rounds. In Round 5, The Final Kendown took a one point lead! In round 6, Mr. Bottemly's Jacket got 10 points to The Final Kendown's 8, giving them a one point lead going into the final round. Both teams doubled the final round correctly with Mr. Bottemly's Jacket taking the final victory at Sports Harbour!

For the Final free shot round, I gave every player a playing card, and they had to scramble around the room till 5 people could make a straight, and 3 more people could make 3 of a kind! Madness ensued!

I thanked everyone for coming tonight, and over the past 6 years, and was stunned as I received a standing ovation with loud cheers from the entire bar. I was truly touched.

I will be taking over hosting duties for Sports Harbour Southbay in Torrance, starting next Wednesday. Quiz time is 8:30. I would love to see some familiar faces if your in the neighborhood!

It's been a pleasure..."So long, and thanks for all the fish!"

Quiz penultimate quiz at Sports Harbour! Reality is setting in for me, as I realize this iconic venue has officially changed hands and will be under new ownership October 1st. This was my first gig for King Trivia as I took over for the the previous host back in August of 2012. When I started, maybe 3 teams would show up to play, and the bar owner would look at me with a skeptical face. That soon changed as we built Wednesday nights into his best weeknight! I have seen many teams come and go through the years...I will miss them all. I have seen couples on teams become engaged, get married, have babies, disappear and return out of the blue! I have had major rock stars as regular players, and soon to be major celebrities as well. It has been awesome to see these lives take shape before my eyes!

One of the reasons I have loved hosting Sports Harbour has been the competition. Throughout the years I have been blessed with highly competitive teams, that respected each other. They would applaud each other when a team excelled, showing great sportsmanship! Of course, a couple of times we would get a new team who would try their luck at cheating. After being exposed, they saw the error of their ways, and either slinked away, or changed their ways!

It has been an honor, and pleasure to be your host! Quiz#300 for me will be next week,(a fitting number to end?) after that...I am not sure what is going to happen at Sports Harbour. I understand the new owner is going to keep the bar open as is for a while, but is not sure for how long and what his plans for the bar will be. Stay tuned, he might decide to do trivia as well!
