After all was said and done our winner, Trivia Newton John, led almost start to finish, with the exception of our Math Round. The final score had Trivia Newton John one point ahead of 2nd place. When asked, her response was, " I only knew one horse constellation." Turns out one was enough. Oh yeah, not only was one question enough, but one team member was enough. Our wining team consisted of just one member.

This week I'm doing something a little bit different. I picked a question from the picture round! It was a picture of Adam Sandler! I think everyone got it right because his image is burned into our brains at birth. For me, Adam Sandler brings up a more philosophical question: why does everyone hate Adam Sandler?
I began my search with a quick google search that revealed many others are confused as well. There were a ton of Yahoo Answers and odd websites all asking the question. Many were confused, how could you hate the Wedding Singer?
Many critiques on Adam focus on how he is old news, lazy, one-dimensional, and plays the same role over and over and over again. I kept reading different articles with the same complaints but halfway through I realized they were all about different movies. Every review is different but every review is the same.
Sony hates Adam. Actors in his movies hate him because he's racist and he's sexist. He's coming to netflix and we all hate that. His latest movies have flopped so hard I have never even heard of them (Blended? The Cobbler?). His latest film, Pixels flopped as well and according to a critic is "Much like the worst arcade games from the era that inspired it, Pixels has little replay value and is hardly worth a quarter." Ouch! Ouch!
I'll be honest, I hate the guy. Lots of people hate him, really. Why does he keep making movies? Why on earth would you hire this guy? In reality, Sandler is just laughing at the critics all the way to the bank. People still love him and his movies that do terrible still succeed somehow (mostly through DVD sales! ha!). Anyways I'm sure he seems like a good guy.

It was an interesting night at Molly's starting with some behind-the-scenes mishaps and some crazy weather. We lost our power cord for the sound system. It just vanished. Luckily, it was easily replaced in time to start the game. We had a downpour moments before the game began with harsh lightning all evening. That's not something you like to see when you're holding a wired microphone for two hours.
The game itself was fairly straightforward, but we did have a team stand out from the rest. We Don't Know dominated the first four rounds with a perfect game. They missed two questions in the fifth, and barely held onto the lead at the end of the game (and if you ask the second place team, who lost by only three points, it all came down to bad wording on a Round 6 question).
Folks seemed to enjoy the Possessive Movie Title round, despite the trick question of Monster's Ball vs. Monsters, Inc. or University. The Pee Wee's Big Adventure audio clue brought audience participation, applause, and laughter. That's what we aim for!
I forgot to get a photo of the winning team tonight with my own camera, but I did take a picture with one of theirs, so maybe they'll post it. I did grab a shot of that Granita I was enjoying. Mixed berry and rum? Thank you, I'll have another!
