Football Trivia: I drift back in time and I find my feet down on Mainstreet....

Thursday Night Football Trivia took place at Mainstreet Bar & Grill in Hopkins this evening. After having won it all two weeks ago and then finishing 2nd last week, I was geared up for another championship.

As usual, the written portion determined how players were seeded for the bracketed tournament. I scored 9 of 13 in the written Q&A, which was good for a #2 seed and a first round bye.

In the quarterfinals, I faced a guy who called himself the "Argonaut." This round is Family Feud style where the first person to buzz in obviously gets first crack at answering. It was best 2 out of 3. 

Question one: Who was the last person to hit a home run and score a touchdown in the same week. 

Brad (buzzing in first): Deion Sanders. Correct. 

1-0, Brad. 

Question two: Which NFL team holds the record for longest losing streak. 

Argonaut (buzzing in first): Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Correct. 

1-1 tie. 

Question three: Name one of the seven NFL teams which do not employ cheerleaders. 

Brad (buzzing in first; totally guessing): Atlanta Falcons? Incorrect. 
Argonaut: Cleveland Browns. Correct!

Argonaut wins, 2-1. He would go on to lose his semifinal matchup however. Regardless, I left Mainstreet feeling incredibly unfulfilled. 

On a side note, 17-time champion Brendan Byrne lost his semifinal match, so there have been three different winners the first three weeks. 

On to Liquor Lyle's next week where I will seek the distinction of being the first repeat winner in 2014.
