The Nerds Take a Knee team (AKA I can haz Nerdz) took the Pro wrestling themed round to the next level.  They doubled down successfully, identifying all the former wrestlers turned actors, and proceeded to keep the rest of the teams on the ropes all the way to the final round.  Shave My Back (pictured 2nd) grabbed every folding chair they could find and smashed them into their competition, but could only get within one point of the Nerdz (pictured 1st).  Meanwhile, in the main bar area, the Primorsk Players (pictured 3rd) were waiting for their big moment to body slam the Nerdz.  Unfortunately, the Primorsk Players slipped on the top rope (in preparation for their big leap) and fell to a third place finish.  Congratulations to all our winners tonight!

It was a photo finish tonight in the packed Red Room at the Arsenal!  There was a lot of fresh blood in the room tonight, people that looked strangely familiar.  It's almost like I saw some of these people on TV somewhere.  But I digress...

In the end of the game tonight, Shave My Back (pictured third) and Uhhh... Emily? were tied for third.  The tie breaker question asked for the fastest timed mile ran by a male.  Shave My Back guessed within 2 seconds of the actual time!  It was an amazing way to finish third!  Meanwhile, at the top of the board, the teams were battling for first by naming the most mother sauces in French cooking and the 5 spices in the Chinese 5 spice blend.  Not a topic many people knew besides one guy in Jerome Made Us Do It.  It turns out he studied the 5 mother sauces in French cooking in preparation for another quiz game he likes to play in his spare time.  I couldn't remember the name of that game, but it sure helped Jerome Made Us Do It clinch the $50 gift card tonight!  Not to be forgotten, Those Bastards! (pictured second) held on long enough to secure second place and the $20 gift card by playing it smart until the very end.  Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone for coming out tonight!

The Nerdz (pictured first) are back on top!  The team formally known as "I can haz nerdz," dominated the Arsenal tonight!  After they hit a successful double or nothing in the 2nd round, they rode that energy all the way to first place!  Their round 2 double was the only one of the night!  No one could keep up after that.  Uhhhhh...Emily? (pictured second. Not pictured: Emily) tried to catch up but could only get within 14 points of the Nerdz.  The Nerdz were everyone's carrot, taunting them all to finish the race strong.  On the other side of the score board, we had two teams whose spirit kept the room light.  Velocity Raptors (pictured third) and the Flock of Segals (pictured fourth) stayed positive until the very end and finished in a tie.  It's groups like theirs that remind me why we play; for camaraderie and fun!  Thanks for coming out and including me in your adventures!
