Norwegian Wood-Gasms Do It Big

While it was the first time that this team was called the Norwegian Wood-Gasms, they've been coming to Pub Quiz for a long time, sharing their Orgasmic joy with us all. They've won the game before, but never pulled the jackpot.  That all changed this week.  The Norwegian Wood-Gasms managed to put up high scores in each round, and even though they didn't win a single round, they still ended up in the lead.  Once again, the top team was only a half point ahead of two other teams.  Maybe they were lucky, but that luck extended to pulling the jackpot chip as well.

Round 4 was won by Public Service Announcement, which pulled them into that second place tie.  Here are the topics they chose for your study:
Local Ska Bands
Jane Austen novels
Forever Knight (tv show)
Plays of Arthur Miller
World War 2 combat aircraft
70's sitcoms
2004 Red Sox
the bends - scuba term
films of Akira Kurosawa
Fabulous Baker Boys (film)
History of Mac OS
Roosevelt School of the Arts
Presidency of Bill Clinton

Finally, we're thankful for all of your support quizzers.  We're glad to be a part of your lives on a weekly basis.

Oh-Needers Need Another Win

It was a really close game this week at Pub Quiz. When it was all said and done, and the dust was settled, the top seven teams were within two points of each other.  The top five were within one.  There was a tie for second place, just half a point off the winning score.  Emerging victorious, for the second week in row, were the Oh-Needers.  They won a dogfight, but didn't pull the jackpot chip.

Round four was won by PUBlic Nudity, one of the second place teams.  They decided that you should study these topics for next week's game:
The Wives of Henry the 8th
Rubber Soul (Beatles album)
Hanson (band)
San Diego Craft beers
Sondheim musicals
British Military rank insignia
World War 2 military aircraft
Inherit the Wind (movie)
The Works of George Orwell
History of the Fulton Mall
Rogue Festival
Star Trek (original series)
The "bends" - diving term

Remember, next Wednesday is the day before Thanksgiving.  Your friends and family will be in town.  Why not celebrate at Pub Quiz?
