We're well into week 2 of the Winter Olympics. yay.
This simply means only a few more days before this spare set of events, notice I didn't say sports, is over. If you're curious, yes, the PubGuys feel rather strongly about the differences between events and sports (see here). Simply put, if it has to be judged, it is an activity or event. There are several other nuances to it, but you get the picture. Curling – that's a sport. Biathlon – also a sport. Ice dancing – not a sport. I'm not diving into the argument of physical prowess or exertion right now (goodness knows we did that in the link above). I'm merely conveying our point of view that the PubGuys are very glad that the Winter Games are soon to be concluded.
March Madness is right around the corner, and we're getting excited. First, if you aren't familiar, the PubGuys have a very special (and AWESOME) March Madness fantasy-style game. Sure, we'll go ahead and set up a bracket challenge like everyone else, and we might even give away a prize. But more importantly, we're looking forward to year 2 of the PubGuys March Madness Tournament Challenge. We are hoping to fill even more brackets this year. Look for details about the Tournament Challenge soon, or just ask your favorite neighborhood PubGuy.
Onto the results from trivia. That's what you're here for after all. Right?
Game One turned out to be quite the battle as the team, Friday, We Aim for Canada's 5-Hole just managed to outlast The Sparkling Boobs. Finishing just outside the money were the teams Dave's Angels followed closely by My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't and Deadwrinkle. In the opening game, we learned that Prohibition began in 2004, Eddie Van Halen was the lead singer of AC/DC, and Harry Potter's death prompted the burning of effigies in British streets in 2013.
The Power Hour marked the return of the Loyalty Thugs, playing under the alias All This Putin Stinks. Welcome back, and congrats. In their first night back in some time, they quickly returned to midseason form and dominated the competition. Finishing in the Ms. Congeniality spot was My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't just ahead of 5 Rings, 5 Holes, and an Olympic Dream (quite the underrated team name). The fun facts we learned in game number two included, Smokey Robinson's most famous band was apparently Robocop and the Pips, Reunion Tower is the tallest building in the US, London Bridge is also known as the "Gateway to Calcutta", and Charles Darwin was the author of 50 Shades of Grey. Interesting…
The Power Hour was pretty tough this week so you might consider studying up next week. But if you don't want to study (I don't blame you), I'll just offer up a bonus point. All you have to do is bring the answer to the question below to trivia next week and I'll give you a bonus point. See the Winter Olympics have me feeling all generous.
