On the train this morning I nearly threw up, and for once it wasn’t because of the angel dust. I was standing next to a couple, who were standing a little too close to each other. At first I figured that they were just so fucking in love that they couldn’t stand to be more than ten inches from each other, even during the morning rush hour. However, I was horrified to find out that they were standing so close to each other because they were both reading the same book at the same time. When he turned the page, she actually said, “Hold on. I’m not finished yet.” I found this whole scene to be quite disgusting.
So last night, the Reign of Trivia Terror ended at Rock’s. Due to have 9 people, we had to split into two teams. On The Bears: Putting the Colts Down Like Barbaro were Gregerson, Chandler, Gregerson’s friend (Andy?), and Remus. On Get Over It, It Was a Fucking Horse were Christoff, the Brothers Weeser* (minus Greg, of course), Jessie, and me. GOIIWAFH got off to a very rough start in the first two rounds. Dick Van Dyke Show trivia questions are not cool. Despite the fact that we won the shot round (the shot this time actually featured the recognizable taste of alcohol) and pretty much kicked ass the rest of the way, it was not enough to overcome our blunders in the first two rounds. TBPTCDLB finished in second place, which now carries with it a prize of sorts. In Rock’s trivia past, only the first place team won something (25% off their bill). Now, the second place team gets to choose a category for a round of trivia for the next Tuesday in lieu of a general trivia round (it can’t be too specific of a category). Thus, next week one of the rounds will be Division 1-A college football nicknames. As it currently stands, there may be three to four of the 119 D-1A mascots that I do not know, and those teams all reside in the Sun Belt Conference. Die slow motherfuckers.
In other news, the Hoosiers just pulled off a big win beating #2 Wisconsin 71-66 in B-town. It's a great win, but I can't tell you how disappointed I am that the students rushed the court after the game. Act like you've been there. Apparently they did not read my opus on the proper rules of court rushing in college basketball.
