Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to add it to a fruit salad.
Another form of wisdom is knowing that Ace Tomato Company is a formidable quiz opponent. Take last night, for instance. The were tied with To Infinity and Beyoncé for the entire quiz this week at Timmy Nolan's in Toluca Lake. But the Tomatoes squeezed out a slim, four-point win in the final round, with TI&B a very close second.
It's worth pointing out that Salsa, Haggis, & Greens was right there with 'em until a tragic misstep in the 5th Round caused 'em to fall a little behind. But they still ended up with a respectable 79 total points and the 3rd Place finish!
See ya next week!

Greetings, friends and fellow quizzers! Today's recap will be a little different. We focus not on our three winners from this week's quiz at Timmy Nolan's in Toluca Lake, but rather on the courageous, intrepid, bold, determined, audacious, unflinching and stouthearted men of Sister Act 6: City Under Siege.
There they are, in photo #1 above! Study those faces. Consider their bearing. These, my friends, are MEN! Manly men who stand straight and lean into the fight no matter the odds! Yes, my friends, these are the kind of men that other men aspire to be, and I'd be proud to call these Sisters my brothers!!
What, you might ask, has triggered my gushing admiration and respect? I'll tell you! Any team can attempt to double - crash and burn - and keep coming back for more. A somewhat smaller number of teams might attempt a subsequent double - eat dirt - and once again smile through it all. But it takes a special grade of wild-eyed madman to execute three failed double attempts back-to-back-to-back, self-destruct in spectacular fashion like these guys did last night - and smile through it all!
My God it was glorious! When made aware of this tremendous, courageous failure, the crowd at Timmy Nolan's - including our winners Hieroglyphic Buttjam, Salsa, Haggis & Greens and Juice on the Loose gave the Sisters a well-deserved round of applause!!

What a fantastic night at Timmy Nolan's! I surprised the players and was the guest host for the evening. Thank you for an enjoyable night. R. Kelly had a huge presence with some team names - "R. Kelly Has My Daughter" was my personal fav.
Congrats to Ace Tomato Company, Unex-It and Gerkin Off!
Thanks for making it out on a Wednesday night and hope to see you all next week, where I resume with my team and play for the gold!
