With such an event-packed weekend, I was again humbled and slightly taken aback with all the team that showed up last night. You could have been at Pride Fest downtown with your very best gay BFF. You could have been at Comic Con pushing the limits of that restraining order James Marsters has against you. But no, you spent your Saturday night with Geeks Who Drink.
Most teams started off guns-a-blazin’ with 9 of the 13 teams using their joker in round 2. Of course, the number of perfect to near-perfect scores in round 2 tells me that it was probably a smart move. The average score per team was a staggering 12.5 points per team, and that’s before the joker. Y’all aren’t ashamed of the music you’re supposed to be ashamed of, now are ya?
After that, things settled down considerably. Just the tip and 99 problems but a quiz ain’t one traded first and second place back and forth for most of the night, but the most heart-warming story of the evening came from Jesus reunited.
That’s right, the members of Jesus skipped AA have all come back together in one quiz-soaked orgy of puppy dogs and cotton candy, the sight of which could just melt your heart.
I gave away the Sardine Jigsaw Puzzle to Colter of team Blow n’ go. Congrats, Colter!
The most filthy name of the night belongs to The first 8 inches were consensual, who ironically sat next to Just the tip. I wonder what would happen if those two teams were to dance-fight a la West Side Story…
At any rate, come on back next week when we reenact the cantina scene from Star Wars. I call dibs on the saxophone player!
