The Trivia King is Sacrificed on the Altar of John Hughes

I haven't been able to go to bar trivia for the past two months, so last night was my triumphant return. Unfortunately, it wasn't so triumphant. Five-time champions Team Totally Tits came in 15th out of 18 teams. Oy!

It was a particularly hard game this time around, made more so by the fact that T3's size was cut in half, with two of our players out of town on a family emergency. The remaining two, myself included, soldiered on and did the best we could, but a rough round of brain teasers and a deadly audio round that involved naming the song, performer and which John Hughes movie soundtrack it comes from did us in.

Though I'm proud I was one of the few people there who knew the name of the band that did the song "Oh Yeah" from Ferris Bueller's Day Off -- Yello.

T3 will be going back September 14, hopefully at full strength, to redeem ourselves after this embarrassing defeat!
