Trivia Q&A;: April 25

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
We had a much smaller crowd on this Monday night's special edition of Trivia Night than we had last Monday, as there were no sporting events involving Boston teams on Monday. 11 teams came in and took part in the night's festivities.
The scores were generally very good throughout the night. The team in first place never had more than a one point lead in any round. We had a tie going into IQ Trivia, and I thought the scores in that round might be a bit low, as I thought I made those questions a bit harder. But the scores were really good, and most teams got at least 3 of the 5 questions right.
But the team of My Futon Pulls Out But I Don't eeked out a one-point win, and each succeeding team going down to fourth place was one point behind the next. Congratulations on their first win after many weeks. The team of Happy Birthday Gillian finished second (and we gave them Best Team Name of the night in honor of longtime Trivia regular Gillian's birthday) and Screw John, He's Not Here finished third.
As of this writing, we don't know exactly which night Trivia will take place next week. The Celtics second round schedule has not been determined yet, and the Bruins are still fighting to get to their next round. I would guess Trivia Night will be either next Monday or Tuesday night. Please check back with this site during the week, and as soon as we can make a determination, it will be posted here.
