Thanks to everyone who showed up last night! It was good to see some old faces and new, and in the end it was some familiar faces, Tuesday Heartbreak, with a dominant victory at 68.5 points, beating out Rand Paul’s Bro Tank with 59.5. We had a 3-way tie for third at 52.5 between Genius Club, the Nevernudes, and XXX (playing as Orlando Bloomsday, which won them the best team name vote). Because we’re generous, there will thus be three third-place rounds next week: Wyoming, Cryptography, and Jewish writers. We’ll see you then!
Also, a quick plug for a good cause: your fellow Stetsons trivia regular Michael Michaud (of team Suck It) is raising money by playing in the Travis Roy foundation’s wiffle ball tournament to benefit spinal cord research. Growing up a sports fan in New England – and especially as a college hockey fan – it was impossible not to be touched by the story of Travis Roy, who was paralyzed just 11 seconds into his first game as a member of the Boston University hockey team. Since then, he’s been working to raise funding to help others with spinal cord injuries – and Michael’s helping with this cause by participating in his tournament. I urge to you join me in donating to the Travis Roy foundation through Michael’s donation page right here: http://goo.gl/VmdJSy
Brian will be hosting next Tuesday, and will post some hints here before then. See y’all next week!
