In my "teaser post" yesterday, I said I thought we were going to have some fun last night and my prediction was correct. We had nine teams made up of thirty-one players on hand, and among them were two entirely new squads, a team that used to play at Helen's occasionally, some teams that are becoming every other week players, and some stalwarts. After forty questions had been played in the first half, "Pray for Mojo," a team of four this week, had the lead with 1300 points, abetted by a stolen riot. The quartet of "Herding Cats," was in second place with 900 points, having pocketed a stolen riot and banked 250 points on a successful wager on the "Daily Double." The quartet of "Old People" was in third place with 800. "Hamma Thyme," a trio, the quintet of "Team Havin' Fun," and the duo of "Mork and Mindy" all shared fourht place with 750 points. Newcomers "Working for Tips," a team of four, made the turn with 650, having pocketed a stolen riot, but having its own riot stolen in turn. The trio of "We Just Wine" had 500 points and newcomers, "Team Integrity," a duo, finished the half with 400 points, having both a stolen riot and a lost riot.

The second half saw another forty questions played and just one less stolen riot. When the time for the final question arrived, "Herding Cats" had seized the lead with 3700 points, aided by a stolen riot in the last turn. "Pray for Mojo" had slipped to second place with 3600 points, despite having stolen another riot. "Old People " had clung to third place with 3300. Fourth place belonged to "Working for Tips" with 2950. In fifth place "Hamma Thyme" had 1950, having lost 1000 points on a next-to-last question unsuccessful wager on the half's "Daily Double," but aided by a stolen riot. Sixth place was shared by "Team Havin' Fun" and "Mork & Mindy" with 1350. And "Team Integrity" and "We Just Wine" checked in with 1100.

The category for the final question was "Ed Asner."
In what 1963 Elvis Presley movie...
-whose cast included Gig Young, Lola Albright, and Charles Bronson
-which was a remake of a 1937 movie starring Edward G. Robinson, Bette Davis, and Humphrey Bogart
-whose soundtrack was a six-ong EP that featured the #30 hit "King of the Whole Wide World"
...did Ed Asner make his feature film debut? (Answer below)

Here are some more questions from the game:

FQ-"Kid Galahad"

2. Shoshone
3. Mary Lou Retton
4. "Brave New World"
5. U.S. Military Academy at West Point
6. Jay-Z

Three of the nine teams answered the final question correctly, with "Herding Cats" closing out the win with a wager of 3601, to finish with 7301 points, claiming a cash prize of $74. "Hamma Thyme" wagered all 1950 successfully and ended up with 3900 points, good for second place and a $50 cash prize. Newcomers "Working for Tips" also had the correct answer, but chose to wager zero points, and ended up in third place.

Thanks for playing and we'll see you next Tuesday.
