Trivia Q&A: September 17

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
We had 8 teams in for Trivia on Tuesday night, and a close race between three teams into the final rounds. BTW, the Q Train lightning round of "Member of Congress or Porn Star?" was a success, as the scores were pretty good. (I guess people know their politicians and adult film stars!) The team of 9/17-Happy Constitution Day! Happy Birthday Julie Goldberg! (which also won for Best Team Name) pulled out a close victory, with 45 points. They got 4 of 5 correct in the IQ Trivia round, to jump from second place to victory. Congratulations to Julie on the win, and on her birthday!
Second place ended in a tie between two of the best regular teams, DIMS and B Team, both with 43 points. We broke the tie with "What is the population of the nation of Spain as of 2019?" DIMS was closest to the answer (just over 47 million) and got second place, with B Team taking third.
