Tonight I have a score of 22413 in a strange game where I'm helping a small group of friends against a larger group led by DAVETV. I've been feeding answers to TREV who holds the lead with 22660 ahead of MOLSON who's in Dave's group. I'm in third but just want 'our' group to win as I was cut out when Dave took his group to one of the restaurant's booths. Wow, playing 'AGAINST' DAVETV, what a nightmare. I hadn't won any of the rounds but this was a good score for me.

Question:...Which group won a Grammy in 1965 for the song 'Flowers On The Wall'?

Well no problem for me and a few others in the group. It was '5'. I made sure TREV had it and our group would win. Maybe asking what their names were would be tough, they're not really brothers.

Correct Answer:....5. Statler Brothers

I'm right and finish with 33619 points which is 3rd in this bar out of 11 players. TREV wins with 33990 and is 19th on the Top 20 network. He finishes 61st in North America, MOLSON is 62nd with 33923 and I'm 67th. The bar is 8th best in North America with a 33230 average. I earn 3000 Players Plus points for this game.

My Players Plus points have been finally transferred over to this bar. I'd lost track but I'm a Red Star with 576300 points. That's no great shakes in this bar but I only come out Saturday nights if at all.

The DAVETV group was formed at 9:30pm when he arrived and splitting off with about six others for a booth including MOLSON, KELLY, PHREDD and ENIGMA. My group had four of us ROCKET, Bill MADDOG, Trevor TREV and Jeff LEAFAN.

Well the Dave group won four games and my group won two. It was competitive but look at the glory we brought to the bar. On my way out I was seething but went over to the other booth to say goodnight and Dave shook my hand and said "It was nice seeing you again". I was instantly not mad at all! TREV and LEAFAN were really grateful for my earning them a win.

I expect to be at the Women's CONCACAF qualifying soccer tournament next week so there won't be a trivia report.
