NMM

The PAX finished 16/20 (80%). Thanks for allowing me to keep the trivia tradition alive on the last Thursday of the month at Tavern. I hope that the movies selected were crowd pleasers. Everyone contributed, some of whom said they knew nothing, and then knocked it out of the park when it mattered most (Pink Panther). Waterboy, Schrute, and Jelly may have been the ringers today. Great job fellas. Some great mumblechatter was had quoting lines like, “Are you telling me Jesus Christ couldn’t hit a fastball?” And “Billy, you lost all our *@#$ing money?!” And who could forget, “I like to think of my Jesus wearing a tuxedo t-shirt.” Really enjoyed it today fellas. Next time trivia comes up, I hope some of my useless knowledge sticks with you. Also, pretty cool to know that Bull knows the guy who played Keanu Reeves’s stunt double in “The Replacements.” PS – James Earl Jones’s characters were Terrance Mann and Thelonius Mertle.

Aye!
