NTN Encore Question of August 5th, 2006.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.
Tonight I'm playing with two boards as ROCKET and LITBOX with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA, and Phil PLBAAB. I had to e-mail them to ask which bar they were going to be this week because I'd lost track. I arrived directly from watching the Caribana parade and have sunburn on my neck and arms from the elbows down.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp...ROCKET...5000/5000...1st/7...I co-won this round with METLCA. ..........LITBOX...5000/5000...1st/7. I only had to guess one and was right. OnBeat...ROCKET...11000/14000...3rd/7...METLCA wins round with 8 of 9. ..........LITBOX...11000/14000...3rd/7. 6 right and 3 wrong wasn't great but I hadn't been keeping up with music news this month. Sean says "Ford" as an answer of Taylor Hicks new endorsement deal but we thought he was saying '4'. I don't think I'd have got it anyway. JukeBox...ROCKET...14361/20000...4th/7...COSMO wins round. ...........LITBOX...14361/20000...4th/7. We'd played a JukeBox game earlier tonight which usually only comes up Friday night when I'm not here. Those questions seemed easy. This one had three of the six as really difficult and I have to wait for the last clue. Triviaoke...ROCKET...21807/28000...3rd/7...COSMO wins round. .........LITBOX...21784/28000...4th/7. A very good round for me as I don't take any -250s. I was happy to get to 20000 points before the Encore round. There'd also been a Triviaoke game earlier tonight.
Now the Encore answers come up. These songs I can match up with the artist so it must be more difficult thant that.
Encore Question:...L.A. is described as 'Nashville with a tan' on this 1990's song:
I don't know this. It's like they've squeezed in another Triviaoke question. Well not '5' and as I thought about it I didn't think it would be'4' neither. Someone suggested 'Give It Away'. Red Hot Chili Peppers are pretty popular with the quiz writers. I hadn't thought about it then but they'd already asked a much repeated question about them in the TuneUp round. Phil suggests 'Mr Jones'. Yeah I like that better now than the chorus of 'Give It Away' so I change my answer. What about '3'? Don't know the lyrics of that song except the title. So could be 2, 3, or 4.
Correct Answer:....3. Lullabye
[NTN Extra Fact:...The Shawn Mullins singlle makes references to Bob Seger and Sonny & Cher.]
I'm wrong stay at 4th as ROCKET. I finish 6554th in all North America. The bar is 1999th in North America. I earn 1500+ points for not making this week's standard of 18000 points. Sean wins. Only some guy playing as MOJO gets this right in our bar. [NTN.com listed the bar at 430th out of 1982].
Soccer season is still on so it may be another three or four weeks until I'm out again. Too bad about missing this week because the only time I would have missed otherwise this summer was The Eagles question. Rob says they got The Eagles questions right so that would have ran a perfect summer. The Top 20 bars all have averages over 30000 so they must have found this week's question really easy or the competition is getting better.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank ntn.com rank METLCA 23635 x 11818 6265 2259 COSMO 22453 x 11227 6452 2400 ROCKET 21807 x 10904 6554 2483 LITBOX 21784 x 10892 6558 2487 PLBAAB 20099 x 10050 6824 2770 MOJO 5211 7816 7530 3749 FLEUR 3519 x 1760 9443 7413 MADDOG 500 x 250 9999? 8751 [NTN.com listed 8956 players]
