Tonight I'm playing with Bill MADDOG, Marlo ZIGGY, Bill OH YA, Doug CRANKY, and Kimmo KAV . We've had a good game until now.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp...5000/5000...1st/10...in seven way tie with MADDOG, CRANKY, 
OnBeat...11500/14000...1st/10...OH YA wins round...I'm in lead with MADDOG.
Seven right and two wrong wasn't bad.
JukeBox...16692/20000...1st/10...I win round.
Triviaoke...23375/28000...1st/10...I win round.

So on to the Encore. The answers suggest a grunge band. Not a strong category for me. Well bring it on.

Encore Question:..."Temple Of The Dog" is a 1990 collaberation between members of Pearl Jam and ________



I don't know this although I think that it would be a fellow Seattle band. I remember reading about the Mother Love Bone connection with Pearl Jam. I remember Jeff LEAFAN (banned from this bar earlier in the year) joked "It's always Soundgarden". A non player had blurted out the wrong answer in the OnBeat round insisting on Shakira instead of Paulina Rubio as Mexican but did help us get a Johnny Winter album title. He was sure it was Soundgarden. MADDOG and ZIGGY were also sure so I'll go with them.

Correct Answer:...1. Soundgarden

[NTN Extra Fact:...The album tributed lead singer Andrew Wood who died of a heroin overdose.]

I'm right and hold on to win. I finish with 35063 points. I finish 8th on the Network Top 20 for all North America. The bar is 11th with a 31671 average. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting this week's points standard of 15000.

Here's how the rest of the bar did:
Player	preEncore	Final	Rank	NTN Top 100
ROCKET	23375		35063	   8	17
MADDOG	22006		33003	  20	56
ZIGGY	20397		30595	 717	91
METLCA	20014		30021	 891
OH YA	19780		29760	 997
COSMO	19238		28857	1244
LIZZY	19043		28565	1333
CRANKY	18749		28123	1467
KAV	15959		23953	2732	

Other games:...I start the evening with 2,299,700 P+ points.
9:30pm...Wipeout....8490/15000...1st/11 thanks to Marlo...1000+ points...I'm 1218th in NA...bar is 14th in North America with a 7854 average.

I was out in Mississauga in the early evening watching a game in the local soccer league.

Last week I wasn't out at all as I was watching the A-League soccer game Toronto Lynx beat Calgary Storm 4-2. The Playback message board never got the full Encore question and answers for last week but I heard the answer from Sean METLCA 38835 (10th on NTN Top 100) and Rob COSMO 35919 (31st on NTN Top 100) who helped the bar finish 21st with a 22167 average. Something like "Ron Sexsmith's colourfully titled album was released last year". Correct answer was "Blue Boy" as opposed to the other choices offered such as Green Dress etc. Although this artist is from Toronto I wouldn't have known this title back in June 2002. I'm typing this up in November 2002.
