Brian’s about to kick off the Fall-Winter League season tonight. As you know, it’ll culminate with a grand final in which the team that has the highest combined score from their league points and the grand final will be crowned our league champions and will receive an awesome prize (most likely a set of 8 tickets to a DC pro sporting event, if last season is an indication). See Brian’s reminder on the league rules a couple posts back on this blog if you need to refresh your memory.
I also wanted to remind you that even if you’re not the champion, there’s plenty to play for. The top four teams in terms of total league score (counting the grand final as if it were a regular league night) at the end will earn berths into the Spring 2015 DC Trivia Champions League. In case you didn’t hear, we just finished our inaugural Champions League with 4 participating bars, and Stetson’s league champs Suck It won the whole thing, winning 8 DC United tickets as well as $150 in gift certificates to participating bars. We plan on having even more bars involved (and more prizes) for the Spring edition, so start working towards qualifying tonight! Don’t forget that in addition to top-5 finishes each week, attendance does matter, as each team gets 2 points just for showing up each week – with an amnesty 2 points if you miss a single week.
Enjoy the start of the league!
