    I think a good name would be:
    The Cyclone Fanatics

    Re: Cy's House of Trivia

    We'll be there again--but we probably won't be competing for the team title. Last year we were in the top 3 for the first 4 rounds, then the beer hit us and it was downhill. We were the j-holes that was standing up during the "musicals" round (Jeff Johnson was leading our efforts). I think the tables around us were po'd.

    Our team name again this year is Snowball's Chance.

    If I lived closer I think this would be a fun way to spend an afternoon.

    Re: Cy's House of Trivia

    Only 10 of the 80 total questions were about ISU athletics. The rest of it was general -- showtunes, famous firsts, music, movies, duos, around the house (helped to have women on your team for that one), etc.

    I'd absolutely love to do it with with some friends, but I just can't justify spending that much money. Maybe next year.

    Re: Cy's House of Trivia

    For $50 last year, you got:

    (1) T-shirt
    (2) FREE BEER (I heard they had other beverages, too)
    (3) Hot and cold snacks/appetizers
    (4) At least 2 Happy Joe's pizzas for each team

    And that's the stuff I can remember. Item #2 may be the reason for the cloudy memory.

    And the reason you already forgot what you typed in the first sentence, contradicting item #2.

    Re: Cy's House of Trivia

    The way I figured, the free beer more than pays the entry...

    To be fair, it IS almost 1:00 on a Monday. Isn't that just past Beer:30 for everyone?

    Re: Cy's House of Trivia

    I also hear that there are 45+ tables this year. I don't know who the 45 ISU "celebrities" will be, but if this event gets any bigger they'll be pulling my old Physics proffesor out of retirement.

    Re: Cy's House of Trivia

    I'd be going if it were any other night than the day of the Spring Game. I expect to be sleeping off the morning's drunkeness by that evening.
