Well, Well. That Went Adequately.Troy D.
Well, what did we learn tonight, boys and girls? We learned that nobody can identify famous people signing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." (Ballgame? Ball Game? Anyway.)
I had such faith for this round too - I even decided to opt for it instead of a video round because I absolutely love watching quizzers take on people who sing badly. But the high score was a 3. The median score was a 2. Out of 8. Everybody got Ozzy right, and it just kinda fell down the wormhole from there.
But here's the thing... who can identify who's singing that song at the game anyway? First off, most everybody at a ball game is pretty trashed anyway by the 7th inning. Secondly, all the leader has to do - literally - is sing two words... because right after they sing "take me", the whole crowd picks up, and you can just sit back and lip sync the rest.
Round 8 was also a bitch and a half too, apparently, with an average score of 5.9. Out of 16. And NO right answers from any team on Q8. I can at least forgive y'all for being non-Biblical scholars because - well - I know bettter.
Burt Macklin for FBI Director pulled off a win tonight with a 61 - which I think is the lowest high score I can think of in recent memory. Yeah, Jeets! jetted into second - edging out Legalize Marinara for that second place spot they wanted so badly. Ah, maybe next time.
Shake it off, Taylor Swifties. We'll do this again next week. In the meantime, go catch a ball game or something.
