16th July

Hey,do you want to take part in the inaugural sports quiz at The Crafty Pig?



Oh. Well thankfully there were some who did, including:



They managed to put up with me continually saying "tonight" and "this evening", as I'm used to working a lot later, and Stephen's Sparkly Nips staged an almighty final round charge to take the win by a single point on 35pts! They beat the HI-LOs, putting in a brave call to go higher than a 9, but had no idea about the What Year question. 20 bar tab for them, and 50 rollover for us next week!

They had mixed luck in the quiz. They scored zero in the Music Round, which was a surprisingly low-scoring round overall, but they nailed the Where Am I? question on the first clue, due to knowledge gleaned during a Robbie Williams concert! You never know when you'll learn something useful!  Very Happy

It was a Wimbledon-heavy quiz - so much so that I got confused between David and John Lloyd. Only one of them has made a fortune from childless swimming pools and non-sweaty exercise balls. I also sang about the men's singles trophy having a pineapple on its lid to the tune of a 90s chant about Jason Lee. Bit niche, even for a sports quiz.

Cheeky Chappies got off to a bad start:

    Which of these is the heaviest boxing division: flyweight, featherweight or bantamweight?




They claimed other folk were using their phones, but I could see everyone else, so I'm happy there was no need for 'search history drugs testing'  Razz

A woman stormed into the pub at one point and made me stop the quiz dead to announce that a red Polo was blocking her garage, and to rant at me about how she was going to report it to the police, as if any of it was my fault. Would say that I hope she got it moved, but I don't care to be honest.

The wordsearch featured earlier contained the surname of two World Snooker Championship winners. Two teams got very close to full marks, while another decided the new markets for the sport might be the way to go:



Everyone perked up when biscuits were mentioned, and Al Owry won them, along with a passable haul of other tat:



Only one of Stephen's Sparkly Nips agreed to the photo, and wanted me to point out explicitly that she is not Stephen:
