This post is a tad late because we're still coming down from the high that anyone would experience upon winning—yes, that's right, winning—this past Friday night's Big Brothers Big Sisters Ultimate Trivia Challenge, held at the Erickson Alumni Center and emceed by Martin "Keep It Clean" Dunlap, of the downtown library.
Your team, Team Hexabomb, was once again ably led by Professors Lara Farina and Scott Crichlow (Political Science) who were joined by Professors Ballentine and Claycomb, along with Ann Claycomb (an MFA program alum, of course, who now knows everything that's worth knowing on account of her job in the Provost's office) and yours truly, who, it must be noted, knew that the "crease" is the area in front of the goaltender in hockey.
It was a close contest with alarming questions on many topics of supposedly "general knowledge," including units of measure, presidential history, famous dogs, and the periodic table, but we prevailed.
Our prize included the return of our entry fee and gift cards to DP Dough.
But the best part, besides the winning, was the discovery of A Very Good Chocolate Chip Cookie. This blogger at least is forever on the lookout for such a thing, and if anyone knows who is responsible for those cookies or what the secret ingredient is, do let me know.
