Tonight I'm not having a good game and was falling further behind The Regulars until winning the Triviaoke round. I was playing with two guys I hadn't seen in months Mike DBA and Bill ZEDMAN but they couldn't help me out in this game. Dave COITIS was here earlier in the night but he was suffering from jet lag so gave his board to Paul PJ at the end of the TuneUp round on his way out. Bill OH YA and Bill MADDOG (all these Bill's are different guys) and Paul PJ were out of earshot. At least my end of the bar was well lit.

Here's how my game so far:
TuneUp...3000/5000...12th/19 (in a 5 way tie)...LESTAT wins with 4500.
OnBeat...8250/14000...6th/19...VIKING, MOLSON, KELLY, TIGER, ELVIS win round and
hold lead with 11750. Game's over for me!  6 right, 3 wrong for me in this round.  
JukeBox...12588/20000...8th/19...MOLSON wins round.
Triviaoke...19564/28000...6th/19...I win the round...TIGER holds lead with 23606.

So the Encore answers are all American cities. Well I can't bookmark anything. Just have to wait for it...

Encore Question:...McFadden & Whitehead's "Sound Of ___________" is heard in hits like "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now".



Hey I know these two guys are songwriters because they've asked an Encore question about them before. I look up in my book not expecting to find them but there they are. Ok I've got it and spread the word to those folks in earshot. Kim MOLSON/VIKING was over but his team answered for him before I found the answer. I didn't know we were in a NTN tournament for best 3 of 4 Playback games this last month. Kim says I'll be getting a CD in a few weeks.

Correct Answer:...4 Philadelphia

[NTN extra fact:...Working for Gamble and Huff they wrote for The Intruders, The O'Jays, and The Blue Notes.]

Well that does it! It's actually the third time they've asked a variation of this question for the Encore final. November 15th, 1997 (wow exactly three years ago) and October 9th, 1999. There are so many thousands of questions they could ask!

I'm right and stay in 6th place. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting this week's 18000 point standard. I end the game with 29346 points, good for 865th in North America. The bar was 9th in North America with a 34428 average. Joe TIGER wins (name always displays as ENIGMA in the final totals).
