Chuck the Writer and the Elbo Room Trivia Tournament - Week 9

Ah, it feels good to be back on top. My "Street Academy" one-man wrecking crew (with my wife along as my personal rooting section) is now back on top in the Elbo Room $2000 Trivia Tournament. By nailing such questions as "Which US President threw out the most Baseball Opening Day first pitches?" (Franklin D Roosevelt), and "What is the current name of the island formerly known as Formosa?" (Taiwan), that put me in the lead. Then I was able to nail the 20th question, on "America at War" - "During World War II, the White House allowed two dozen of what animal to wander the White House lawn?" (it was sheep), so I was able to pick up the five first-place points, and am now back as the #1 seed in the tournament.

Here's the standings, the top eight teams will get into the finals, they're currently listed in green:
  • STREET ACADEMY - 17 points
  • Mayhem - 14 points
  • Big Red Machine - 13 points
  • Woo Hoo a Go Go - 10 points
  • Brown Van Experience - 6
  • Tres Hombres - 5
  • Beer Addled Brains - 5
  • Stern Fans - 4
  • Liquor in the Front, Poker in the Rear - 3
  • Donna Martin Graduates - 3
  • 40 oz. Bounce 1
