Our trivia team’s secret weapon

I’m sitting in the Saucer working on my laptop right now. The waitresses are standing on ladders hanging Mardi Gras decorations.

Since I used to be a college faculty member, it is my pleasure to offer the following SAT prep question:

a) jump ropes
b) sweatsocks
c) nachos
d) tube tops

The correct answer is at the end of this post.

This is my first of two visits to the Saucer today, as I will be back tonight for Trivia Bowl. The Rapscallions continue to pile up victories, with something like 8 first-places in the past five months. People always ask me, “How do you guys do it? What’s the key to your success?”

Well, I’m going to give away our secret. We are fortunate enough to have a true Trivia Master on our team. Definitely one of the all-time greats. Here are a few pics of the master himself:

With a trivia stud like this on our team, we could probably win every week if we wanted to, but we feel it’s only fair to take it easy and give the other teams a chance.

If you think this post was a waste of bandwidth, wait ’til you see what I have in store for tomorrow.

The correct answer is d).
