Trivia Q&A;: January 31

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
We had another banner night of Trivia at Professor Thom's on Tuesday night: 24 teams in. (That makes 52 in the last two weeks. Wow.) Once again, there was nothing special going on in the bar. There were a Celtics and Bruins games going on, but neither was that special. (Both won however.) It was just a lot of folks who wanted to play Trivia, and I am grateful for that!
We had some good scores for Florida Trivia and Super Bowl Trivia. (Although I messed the question about the largest island in the Florida Keys. It is actually Key Largo. I had it as Key West, as I made a mistake in double-checking the question. Yes, the Mighty Quinn goofs up on occasion.) It was pretty close all night, but the team of Desmond Howard's Mother Probably Has a Different Last Name came from fifth place in the third round to have two excellent rounds in General Knowledge and IQ Trivia to win by two points, getting 45 in total. A nice win by Ivy League friends, who had not been at Trivia Night in many months.
Second place went to Gronk Dates Porn Stars Because He Doesn't Fit In The Average Woman with 43 points, and third place went to Beam Me Up, Newt with 37 points.
