Galactic Gasms Grab Gravy

We had a good mix of teams the other night at pub quiz, a few lead changes, different round winners, and a jackpot win. The Gasms of the Galaxy showed their intergalactic brains off and knew a few more things than everyone else. We don't know if it was supernatural, but they did pull the jackpot chip. Congrats on that.  Next week the jackpot starts fresh, but it already told us that it wants to go home with you.  And, whenever we have a jackpot winner, the second place team gets their entry money back, so Riker Goes Commando earned that distinction.

The Filthy Princesses Are Crossing Their Fingers and Opening Their Legs... Pick Us! we randomly picked for round 2 topics, and here is what they would like you to study:
How Was Your Week w/ Julie Klausner
Modest Mouse Lyrics
Punjabi Language
Broadway Musicals
Music Theory
Russian Words
Uffizi Gallery
Damages (tv show)
Symbolic Logic
Valentino design house
Hmong History
Gospel of John
U.S. Presidents

Sounds like you may need to исследование or ਦਾ ਅਧਿਐਨ before next Wednesday

50/50 Odds Next Week!

Commander Riker Has the Biggest Powerballs of Them All utilized a technique mastered by a few other teams this week - they hung around in second place, didn't win a round, but won the game.  That takes skill.  However, they didn't win the jackpot, which sets up next week to be a 50/50 chance at the big prize.

The Harry Wong Fan Club was randomly chosen for Round 2 topics, and here's what they came up with for you all to study:
Harry Wong
UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship)
98 Degrees (band)
Core Waiver California
Cats (animal)
2Pac & Notorious BIG
Gilmore Girls (tv show)
Chelsea Handler
Sons of Anarchy
Justified (tv show)
Wonder (book by RJ Palacio)
Red Wine

Interesting. Very Interesting.  Hit the books and maybe you'll take home the jackpot and more.

PS - please use your drink tokens. Stop squirreling them away. They will be of no use when the zombie apocalypse happens.
