Thursday nights

My Thursday nights have become consumed by random facts, fierce competition, friends and beer. In other words: trivia night.

What started as a fun night out by many has transformed into dedication by few. There's about eight of us that show up at the Boathouse every Thursday night ready to search our brains for random and obscure things we learned years ago. I love it. The best part of the game is when someone has a funny story as to why he knows the answer or, better yet, has no idea how he knows the answer. It's actually surprising what you don't realize you know.

A few questions from tonight's game: {a few we knew and a few we didn't}
