 T he only sure thing about Trivia Club, is that victory is never a sure thing! The answers might fall in your favor, but it's all about the when and the how... and if you're lucky... you might even get a Golden VHS for your mom (or so I'm told)!

It was another excellent holiday season for Lou Dawg's BBQ, in our second to last appearance for 2016, and after the first round we had a tie atop the standings! Not only was PETE! in the lead after Trivia Classic, but so were new comers Booze Clues! Four points behind them in third were the newest incarnation of the folks from Lt. Dance, Nucular Expresso! A single point behind them were nice haircut! (thank you!), with @TOpigeons (on instagram, so I was told) a half point behind them in fifth! Rounding out the field were I-H8-Yo-P-Ness returning, and with more attitude!

Game Show Games saw PETE! take the first TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, with some cagey guessing, while Nucular Expresso, I-H8, @TOpigeons, and nice haircut! (again, thank you!) also picked up some points! Survey Says then saw @TOpigeons pick up the TOP TEN, while nice haircut!, Nucular Expresso, and PETE! also picked up additional points! Finally, in the C-C-Combo Breakdown we saw a competitive but quiiick battle between the teams remaining that gave nice haircut!, Booze Clues and Nucular Expresso an extra point each, while @TOpigeons proved to be the surprise last team standing for SEVEN POINTS!

Suddenly in the lead, heading into round three, @TOpigeons picked up twenty points in Tri-Pardo! Booze Clues grabbed an additional five points, while Nucular Expresso were also bitten by the fifteen point question and earned fifteen points in total for their Tri-Pardo glory! Still in the lead, @TOpigeons wagered the least heading into the Finale as the field either hedged their bets (as in PETE!'s case) or went all in (as in Lt. Dance's MO)... and it was the rare for 2016 but always dangerous, total stumper of a Finale!

Which meant that @TOPIGEON won their FIRST GOLDEN VHS at Lou Dawgs BBQ! Congrats to the newcomers, and their pigeon commentary available on instagram, and enjoy White Christmas on VHS, Janet! For more on pigeons, be sure to check out an excellent episode of the Surprisingly Awesome podcast that might very well change your perspective on these much hated birds (spoiler: it was our fault the entire time, because of course it was)!

See you NEXT TUESDAY at Lou Dawgs for the LAST QUESTION! I can't promise we'll be playing a bunch of stuff by The Band, but I'll see what I can do. It'll be an end of the year celebration, a celebration of the good times past and plans for the future! Remember, it's not what you know... it's what you learn along the way!

Russel Harder hosts Trivia Club at Hitch (1216 Queen St East) every other MONDAY of the month, at Lou Dawg's near Ryerson (76 Gerrard St E) every TUESDAY, and Cardinal Rule (5 Roncesvalles Ave) every WEDNESDAY!
