We Won!

Amy and I went to play trivia tonight at Winston's and for the first time in about 3 months we came in first place! Yeah! That means $40 i nhouse cash and bragging rights for the next 7 days.

We changed our team name (or rather I did) tonight from last week's "More than meets the eye" to "Fire Vick, Hire Duante." We were the only team perfect through round one, nailing all 4 correct answers on the bonus question, "What were the top 4 best-selling soft drinks in the USA last year?"

We fell off a bit in round 3, and only scored one correct response in round 4 on the question. "In Jimmy Buffett's song Pencil Thin Moustache, who does he say he wants an autographed picture from?"

The final bonus was Amy's shining moment. We were behind, in second place with 96 points. The team in first had 110, and the final bonus is a wager of 1-20 points, lose them if you get it wrong.

"Created in 1840 with a picture of Queen Victoria, the One Penny Black was the first of what item to ever be produced?" Amy immediately suggested a postage stamp, and we recently had a question as to where the first postage stamp was made/used in what country. The answer then was England, so the Queen Victoria reference made AMy's answer sound very good.

The team in first bet 10 points to guarantee a win with a correct answer, but they got it wrong and dropped to 100 and we jumped up the full 20 from 96 to 116 for the win!
