*HOUSE OF PAIN LYRIC REFERENCE ALERT*
(hint: it's in the title)
One day, I'll title this blog "I'm Drunk and I Love All of You", but today is not that day. However, tonight might be appropriate for that, because I am slightly inebriated thanks to PJ, the bartender who kept the Guinness flowing like wine, and I love all of you because MANY of you contributed to a great cause - fighting Alzheimer's.
Tonight we were loaded with many teams supporting Blondes vs. Brunettes, a charity powderpuff football game this weekend that's already raised over $300,000 towards Alzheimer's research. Some of that money was raised tonight, and I raise a glass to any of you who forked over the cash. We did have a team that got their money back - and then some - but more on them later.
Favorite Team Name of the Week - A few good ones, but I'll go with the crowd on this one. Randy Travis' Dirty Ditch got some raucous applause for referencing the most bizarre news item of the past week. I guess it really wasn't much more than a reference, but everyone got it, and liked it, so that's all that matters, right?
Runner-Up Favorite Team Name of the Week - I Don't Always Watch Gymnastics, But When I Do, I Feel Like a Pedophile, because everyone laughed, and then silently nodded in agreement. It's funny 'cause it's true!
Favorite Wrong Answer of the Night - "Ass, ass, ass!" as Mrs. Broflovski's catch-phrase on South Park
Least Favorite Wrong Answer of the Night - Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer as one of our Members Only movies. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I thought it was a foregone conclusion that Marvel movies, as a rule, don't show any peen.
We had some really strong teams this week, as our scores to the left show. For most of the evening East Nile Five held first place down, but I warned all of you that someone might kill it in round 8 and joker it, and THAT EXACT THING HAPPENED. Congrats to Tietzkruscher & Co. for using the joker as strategically as possible and leapfrogging the competition for a first place win. We will see you next week! That's not a suggestion, by the way. WE WILL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
*ATTACK OF THE BULLET POINTS*
Later, you loveable losers!
