  3. Dwight Yoakum
  4. Eddie Vedder
  5. Sheryl Crow

Tonight I'm in in 2nd place in a game where we in the bar decided to team together to get the bar a Top 20 Network Score. I have 21164 with all brains working together which none of us think are as good as some weeks. SARGON (who is Tom PHREDD playing as a visitor) has the lead. Everyone puts 50% on the line for the Encore Question. ENIGMA and JARVIS and me were the biggest help to the teams.

Question:...Which musician is an accomplished poet who has performed on spoken word tours since 1983?

The hardest part of this question was writing it all down in the 30 seconds. Henry Rollins was just mentioned in this week's underground papers as doing a standup comedy act but each year he seems to come through Toronto doing something like these poetry tours or acting in films or reforming his punk rock band Black Flag. The others seem to know this too.

Correct answer:....1. Henry Rollins

I'm right and stay at 2nd with 31746 points. That's good for 3000+ Players Plus points and a 635th finish in North America. SARGON wins with 31969 points and 570th in North America. The bar finishes 13th with a 30210 average. 8 of our 11 players were right on this question.
