Tournament THING - Week 4
posted August 1, 2013 12:00 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Mon August 5 at 7:30 PM, Tommy Doyle's Harvard Square
96 Winthrop Street, Cambridge, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away (but very close to a well-known university), there lived two nerds who really, really liked answering questions. And so it came to pass that they invited all their internet friends to play Geeks Who Drink trivia.
And lo, the two nerds found themselves in the midst of a mind joust, with a substantial prize at stake. Slaking their thirst with beer, they faced another Monday night at 7:30, rallying the power of Taters alongside them.

Fine, DiscourseMarker, you won, my break ended wicked early compared to what I expected.

I won't be there this week, but make sure you drink extra Kool-Aid for me!

This will be my first time attending trivia with this group. How can I spot you folks out when I get there?

We're usually in the back corner of the 2nd floor, near the stage. We look roughly like this.

We also probably look the least like students of any of the teams: discuss.

We're here and have staked out two tables by the stage. DiscourseMarker has her Mefi shirt on for easy identification.

Recap. Despite a disappointing performance in a tightly grouped field, Hardcore Taters hold on to a 23-point lead in the overall standings.

Any chance you guys forgot to hand in your visual round or anything?

No, I think a lot of teams must have held their jokers until the end, and we just didn't do well enough on the final round. Now, if we got Lindsay F√ľnke scored as wrong, that is clearly bogus, but it's not enough to make a difference.

Also, you can buy a blogging merit badge, but it is merely a spoof. Who knew there were spoof merit badges?

Yeah, I can't help wondering if something didn't get counted.

We really cannot lose to a team called TacoTwats. That team name is bad and they should feel bad.

What I learn from these recaps is that I do not photograph well at all.

Oh Christ, who does (photograph well)?? And yes, tacotwats is an execrable name.
Let us all take consolation in the fact that Taters still lead the way. And secondary taters aren't doing so badly. We shall overcome!!

I was prepared not to be surprised that a group called TacoTwats had no women; I was prepared to be astounded that a group called TacoTwats had one or two women; I am not sure how to react to its having four women in a group of five.
