Remember this day!

Friends!! Comrades!!, remember this day in history, September 24th 2007, the day when team Coal Creek Productions(TM) received SECOND PLACE in the Celtic Bayou Trivia Night contest!!! Yes, you heard me right, after umpteeth humiliating weeks of last places and drinking more $1 pitcher beers than what is good for us, we won 2nd place with a fantastic and godly score of 125 points!!! Yes, feel free to shower us with praise and flowers :)

This day started out special. There was aelectricity in the air. When D imed me in the afternoon and said "I think we are going to win today", I laughed it off as an attempt to rally the troops. Even during the rounds, when I couldn't remember the other name of Master Chief, I wailed in anguish at our luck ( how can I not, considering I just came straight from the Halo3 launch party!!!!?????) We couldn't remember the name of the Israeli intelligence branch. We had no idea that 75% of U.S. Internet Users spent 3 hours or more a day on internet videos (WTF!!). and Phalacrosis is really not what you think it is, and Unilever's company logo is really freaky. All that did not matter! because we remembered that the U.S. left Vietnam in 1973. we knew that the small Islamic Sultanate in the South China Sea was Brunei, we sweeped the sports category, we almost sweeped the TV series photo matching round (yes House was one of them, and damn you, Hill Street Blues). and in the end, D's prophecy came true and we were triumphant!

Congrats on breaking the curse! I've been looking for a trivia night in San Diego but apparently they are quite scarce (and are not free).

So how was that Halo 3 launch party? Any pictures?

Wow, you all swept SPORTS!!!! That's pretty amazing. Were the people at the pub as surprised as you all at the glorious finish? See, now there is pressure to continue the string of excellence! Grats.

Congrats! ^_^ Glad to hear your perseverance in trivia night finally got you a win!

And you're right...the Unilever logo is weird.

I'm impressed by the Brunei one, that was a last minute toss-in by D. It pays to fill in answers at the end!! :)

Grats! I have to admit, though, dropping the ball on the Halo question is not too good...
