Encore Question of December 2nd, 2000.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.
Tonight I'm playing with Bill MADDOG, and Paul ZUKEE and in the distance Paul PJ. We drop further and further behind The Regulars after each round. I did some better guessing in the TuneUp round than I have in a few months. I wanted to reach 20000 before the Encore round.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp....5000/5000...1st/12...ZUKEE and I win this round...six right, three wrong, same as recently. OnBeat...10250/14000...8th/12...The Regulars win, KELLY is in lead with 12250. JukeBox...14622/20000...8th/12...ELVIS wins round and has 17750. Triviaoke...19672/28000...8th/13...KELLY wins round and has 24769.
Now this question should be something about bands in the 1990s. Let me bookmark as much as I can without wasting time dictating the scores. Soundgarden ("It's always Soundgarden" is what Jeff LEAFAN would say before any choices would come up over the years), Bush, three bands start with an 'S', "What were the other bands". They can't remember. Ok...
Encore Question:...Dan Murphy is a guitarist for this popular rock band:
"I like Soundgarden" says Bill, "No it's not, I'm lookin' at it and it's not", I say. Flip to Bush, it's not them neither. Enough time for Sonic Youth...nope, not them! Running out of time. The Oasis guys I know them Gallagher Brothers and Bonehead(?) although they keep changing guys. "Soul Asylum" I say as Kim MOLSON/VIKING comes over from The Regulars with their answer.
Correct Answer:...5 Soul Asylum
I'm right and stay in 8th. I finish with 29508 which earns me 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting this week's 16000 standard. I'm 99th in North America so although I can be well behind at this bar playing against the best, still look good overall comparing scores with the network. The bar finishes 4th in North America with a 35773 average. Chris KELLY drives away with the win at 37153. Our Hall Of Fame board has been cleared so she becomes the first name on the board.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank KELLY 24769 37153 19 made the Network Top 20 but I didn't see where. ELVIS 24665 36997 20 JARVIS 23342 35013 38 OLE JR 23329 34993 39 MOLSON 23139 34709 40 VIKING 23110 34655 41 TIGER 23015 34523 42 ROCKET 19672 29508 99 ZUKEE 17505 26257 779 MADDOG 16534 24801 1290 PJ 13574 20361 2849 CRANKY 7272 10908 6169 PO 495 x 247 9913
