Maddy’s Trivia Recap – July 20, 2011

Couldn’t make it to trivia on Wednesday? Here’s what you missed. Slacker.

Mrs. Murdoch’s Pie and Pie in the BskyB jumped out to an early lead thanks to their knowledge of historical figures that met Bill and Ted. It was a whole new ballgame after Round 3’s picture round, with Birds of War and Better Off Debt ending up out front in a 70-point tie. But it was all Birds of War in the last round with a perfect run at sports team nicknames, edging out Mrs. Murdoch’s Pie to take  home the $50 prize.

Full results:

Three teams hit the century mark. Not too shabby.
