Trivia Recap – Dec. 22, 2016- Wurst Bar

'There were more teams than usual in the mix at Wednesday's @[302131201124:274:My Trivia Live] game at @[282357178481266:274:The Wurst Bar], mainly because of a $400 progressive pot question at the end. A couple of teams managed to get it right, splitting the dough. Without burying the lede (and this is paraphrased): "What Catholic saint was ordered to be shot with arrows and beaten?" We did not get this correct, nor did we win any of the regular prizes, for the third week in a row. Slumpsville! We'll ride it out! Still managed to finish with 59 cumulative points. Brad's college roommate Steve, whom was visiting from Duluth, joined us for the game, so he was a "sub" for John who could not attend.  And the questions, which as always, may be abbreviated versions of the ones that were asked:
Round One
1. Space - What was the name of the first mission that landed a man on the moon? 5
2. Animals - What type of bird is known for commonly standing on one leg? 3
3. Food - Nishiki, basmati and jasmine are all types of what food? 1
Round Two
1. History - Who was famously exiled to Elba Island? 5
2. Anatomy - What is the butterly shaped gland that surrounds the windpipe on three sides? 3
3. Airports - Eighty-five percent of all three-letter Canadian airport codes begin with what letter? For an extra three-point bonus, what does ORD, which is the symbol for Chicago O'Hare Airport, stand for - which refers to an airfield? Missed both for 1.
Round Three 
1. Religion - What was the name of Adam and Eve's third son? 5
2. Disney - What is the name of the only princess belonging to the Pixar universe? Miss for 1
3. Art - With 85 million annual visitors, what is the most visited museum in the world? 3
Halftime - Populations
What are the four most populous "midwest" cities per the 2010 Census? 
Committee thinking killed us, only managed to get two.
Scores: Fourteen teams, scores 16 to 37, with The Outsiders in first. We were tied for fifth with two other teams with 29 points.
Round Four
1. Bridges - Where in Europe can you find the Dragon Bridge? Newsletter, 6.
2. Zodiac - What is the only sign of the zodiac with a representation of a weapon in its symbol? 4
3. Advertising - What item advertised by Shaquille O'Neal refers to a "little shake and a little tingle? Miss for 2. He does whore himself out for a LOT of products...
Round Five
1. Shakespeare - Of his 38 plays, did Shakespeare write more tragedies or comedies? The "tragedy" here is the person on the team with a literature degree had the correct answer initially, but was outvoted in favor of the wrong one (tsk, tsk boys - REALLY? I'll sic the witches from "MacBeth" on you for this transgression! :) )
2. Musicians - James Newell Osterberg, lead singer of the Stooges, is better known by what stage name? My dad used to live next door to him. True story... 6
3. Toys - Prior to being used as a modeling compound, what was Play-Doh originally marketed for in the 1930s? I have NO idea why this answer was in my brain, but hurrah! 4
Round Six
1. Geography - Name the only Canadian province bordered by just one continental U.S. state. Brad steps in for 4.
2. Baseball - What Tigers player achieved the MVP as a pitcher consecutively in 1944 and 1945? Brad was SO close on the name, but miss for 2 (nice try, man!). 
3. Politics - Which symbol appeared first - the Democratic donkey or the Republican elephant? 6
Scores: Fifteen teams - scores 16 to 67, with Team Outsiders in first again. We were tied with My Drinking Team Has a Trivia Problem for second with 59 points.
And just like with the past two weeks? No love with the final for us...
Category - '50s TV
The '50s TV show "The Honeymooners" originated as a sketch on what variety show? 
Nope.... MDTHATP finished with the top prize.
Until next time...which will tonight at @[356745621070514:274:Stick's], with @[100003964225957:2048:David] supposedly on board for joining in on the fun! As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Ralph Kramden!'
