February 26 WOB Arlington Scores:Thuggin’ in the 5-Hole is Totes Allsome

Ok, the Olympics are finally over and it's time to move on. But what can we do in the time until Championship week and March Madness begin? The answer is simple: show up and play trivia with the PubGuys. Trust me, there is some big news on the horizon and if you're not following the PubGuys on all the major social media outlets, you certainly should be. While this seemingly endless lull of action nearly forces us to watch reruns of Murder, She Wrote in hopes of getting a little excitement injected into our lives, we must remain strong. This black hole of sports is almost over; I promise. We will survive, and we'll do it together. 

In the interim, you need to save up your $20 and join the PubGuys NCAA Tournament Challenge. The details will be posted shortly, but the gist is this. The cost is $20 per entry and you stand a great chance of winning some money back, all while having no prior knowledge of basketball or the teams in the tournament. I promise, it's that easy. Again, follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more.

We'll also be having a contest between the WOB-Arlington and WOB-SMU locations. That should be fun. 

 

Oh yeah, there was some trivia Wednesday night….

In what was a wild and crazy night of trivia, the team usually known as William Shatnerface returned under the alias Totes Magotes and stormed through the opening game to a win. The dangerous team of the Loyalty Thugs finished just a few points back for second place, narrowly edging out Just Plain 5-Hole. In the opening game, we learned that Sylvester Stallone played Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies, Gertrude Ederle was the first person to swim the Pacific Ocean, the US has had 6 Presidents with the first name Biff, James Bond was married to RuPaul, and RoboCop lead the Free French Resistance during WWII. Fascinating stuff…

The much anticipated Power Hour of PubGuys Trivia saw From the Ashes Rises the 5-Hole dominate and take home the grand prize. In a close battle for second place the Harold Ramis-Busters just squeezed by the long-awaited return of Dr. Acula. In Game 2, we learned that Paris is the capital of Croatia, the logo of GE was recently named after Larry Bird, Spuds MacKenzie was the first dog in space, and that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Sacramento Kings are two of the charter franchises in the NFL. There was also a very hotly-contested debate over the first woman ever in space: Oprah or Marie Curie. I think that one could go either way…

 

Thanks again to everyone for showing up for another awesome night of PubGuys Trivia at the World of Beer Arlington. Now, since you've been so good lately, here's another bonus question for you. Bring your answer to trivia next Wednesday and you'll be awarded one bonus point.

 

What 1963 song led to a thirty-one month FBI investigation into supposed obscenities hidden in its unintelligible lyrics?

September 11 WOB Arlington Scores: Boom Goes the Couch in the 5-Hole

Pound Town

It's a good thing you guys don't suck, because I do. Well, in the figurative sense anyway; it should never take me an entire week to get your scores posted; I am woefully apologetic for the delay. 

My Couch Pulls Out came strong, stayed strong for the entire first game and were ripe contenders in the second. While 5-Hole, our loving semi-regulars, brought it in both games to take 2nd and 1st respectively. Relative newcomers Boom managed to grab the second place honors in the second game. We'll see them back soon.

Personally, I'd have never thought this, but in terms of college sports, you folks are all about the football. We asked you last week which type of football you liked best and the results came back 60% college and only 30% NFL with the remaining 10% split between Canadian and arena. This week, it was about the baseball and this time around the college stuff didn't fare so well coming in at only 10%. Overwhelmingly, you prefer Major League Baseball (70%) over college (10%) and Little League (20%). Minor League baseball didn't even register a blip. The results are on the front page over to the right (right under the ads, which we'd really appreciate if you went ahead and clicked on…thanks!).

In the meantime, make sure you follow us on Twitter. We've tweeted three different answers over this past week for the game on the 18th. Who knows, those three questions could be the difference between 1st, 2nd and nada.
