NTN Encore Question of March 21st, 2009.
Played at The Squire & Firkin in Etobicoke, Ontario.

Headliner:...AEROSMITH over Girl Groups and Michael Jackson

Encore Question:...This song by Emimem samples a 1973 Aerosmith song:

Tonight I'm playing with two boards as ROCKET and LITBOX with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA and Phil PLBAAB.

Here's how my game went and my comments:
TuneUp...ROCKET...4500/5000...1st/8...our five boards win this round.
.............LITBOX...4500/5000...1st/8.  
The LineUp...ROCKET...13500/15000...1st/8...our five win round.
...........LITBOX...13500/15000...1st/8...nine right and one wrong is our best so far.
Triviaoke...ROCKET...18948/25000...2nd/8...COSMO wins wins round and has 20852.
..........LITBOX...18938/25000...3rd/8...I take two -250s this round even with help. 
Opening Act...ROCKET...22948/35000...2nd/8...COSMO wins round and has 27602.
................LITBOX...22937/35000...3rd/8.
The number key round.  I know how to play but I just don't do well in it this week.  I get three wrong 
for -250 each about 3 for +250 when I get to change my answer with a second run through the
answers.
Headliner...ROCKET...40698/?????...1st/8...my two boards win this round.
............LITBOX...40687/?????...2nd/8...All ten questions are about Aerosmith.
I chose to 'study' Aerosmith this week when I heard about the choice of three posibilities from a tip
to look at the Buzztime web site.  I figured there'd be too much to study on Girl Groups and I know
enough to get by on Michael Jackson.  I wrote down the names of the guys in the band, what year 
they left and rejoined the band and their replacements' names while they were gone, and what 
instrument they played because there was a week year's ago when in TuneUp round they asked for 
the bass player and I didn't know from their choice of two.  This week they asked for the drummer's 
name!  We got the first question wrong then I rattled off nine in a row which helped in the bonus point
accumulation.  Just like bowling with getting all your strikes in a row!  There was a question about
who was the oldest member of the band and it would have been so easy to write that down earlier
today but I didn't then guessed Steven Tyler as his face looked the most weather-beaten.  Phil
said he wasn't sure when he called out Tom Hamilton.  Their getting it wrong meant I ended about
6000 ahead of them when they had to start again for bonus points.  I sure needed Phil's help for 
matching songs with albums.

Now the Encore betting comes up. Well 50% as usual. One more Aerosmith question.

Answers:

  1. Body Of A Venus
  2. Walk This Way
  3. Sing For A Moment
  4. My Name Is
  5. Shake Your Booty

I dictate the possible answers and stop at the third one. That's it. That's Eminem changing up the words to "Dream On". I've heard that song enough on video shows and that I own the Eminem albums that it's on. Just couldn't have got the answer any other way unless I'd hear the song. Everybody in? I've 'sang' a line or so from the song to convince them.

Correct Answer:....3. Sing For A Moment

[NTN Extra Fact:...Sing For A Moment samples "Dream On" from Aerosmith's self titled debut album.]

I'm right and win as ROCKET with 61047. I finish 8th on the Network Top 20 for all North America. The bar is 6th in North America with a 54033 average...I earn 3000+ points for making this week's standard which I miss seeing at the beginning of the game.
(ntn.com keeps us at 6th out of 1896 bars).
