The bitter cold didn’t stop trivia enthusiasts from packing the house at the Black Swan Pub for the first Dan The Man Trivia show of 2010.
The competition was tight, as 8 teams are separated by just 12 points. The Dirty Dixies grabbed the lead, but the team is being challenged by Under the Radar, Chasin’ Trivia, and the Erotic Adventures of Hercules.
Under the Radar put on an impressive performance in the final round by acing all 10 questions and correctly answering the Hero or Zero question. The team bet 20 points on the Hero or Zero question and finished with the maximum 70 points for the round.
The Dirty Dixies and the Erotic Adventures of Hercules won the free rounds of beer.
And thanks to everyone who brought NUTS (Needless, Useless, Tasteless Stuff) to be regifted as trivia prizes.
Trivial tidbits from the night included:
- Before becoming a cast member on the TV show “The Office,” Phyllis Smith was a cheerleader with the NFL’s St. Louis Cardinals in the 1980s. Smith plays Phyllis Lapin on the show.
- Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburrgh offers a $7,000 annual scholarship for bagpipe majors. The scholarship also provides a kilt subsidy.
- The mascot for the University of California at Santa Cruz is the Banana Slug.
