Monday Trivia

So it's Monday. We actually got enough of our team together to go play trivia tonight. It was Me and Amy, with Dave from small group and his trivia friend Mike (whose wife is also named Amy).

We found ourselves in first place (tied) at the end of regulation. To get there we had to answer questions like

Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order SVU is the daughter of what late blond bombshell?

In what movie did Gwyneth Paltrow's character have her head cut off at the end?

What British Invasion band was lead by brothers Ray and Dave Davies?

Approximately how many weeks does the Tour de France last (1, 2, o2 3)?

Michael J. Fox appeared on which sitcom longer, Family Ties or Spin City?

These were all answers that I gae our team correct responses to. They were, Jane Mansfield, Seven, The Kinks, 3, and Family Ties.

Our final bonus was, place these four cities in order from Northernmost to Southernmost.... Madrid, Spain, Mogadishu, Somalia, Rio de Jinero, Brazil, and Bombay India. I had the correct order but it did not matter because a. we decided to bid 0 and hope other teams got it wrong, and b. Dave wanted to use a different order anyway. So we bet 0 and wound up not placing in the prizes. At least we have Wednesday coming, with our game at Winston's with friend Charlie playing with Amy nad me.

I would have said Madrid, Mogadishu, Bombay and Rio. (The middle two are the question marks, eh?)
