Trivia Night Recap

Here is the brief recap of our second Skate Trivia Night, courtesy of Vans, Orchard, and Biddy Early's Pub. We'd like to thank everyone that came out, whether you participated or not, we appreciate you all trekking through the rain to nerd out and drink a little bit with us. Apple Tom and Matt Gannon's "93 'Til Infinity" Team were yet again the victors, taking home the top prize, but only by a mere one point. "Darkslide of the Moon" finished a close and honorable second, taking home a smaller prize, with less bragging rights. DAD Clothing provided the last place prize to Michael Chew and company, a gift bag featuring a Stone Cold Steve Austin piggy bank, a scratched and very used CKY DVD, and two sheets of Penny griptape. Honestly would have thrown the game had I known the Stone Cold piggy bank was up for grabs. Again, we appreciate every person that came out, all of our sponsors for providing the prizes/beer and of course, Biddy Early's Pub for being so down to host something like this, you guys are rad and we cannot thank you enough. We hope to see all you nerds again very soon!

SMLTalk Trivia Night

Alright, so last night we held the first SMLTalk Trivia Night. Thanks again to Orchard, Vans and PBR for hooking it up with the prizes, and to Erik Pickard (@edogpicky) for MCing and also for providing us with an incredible rendition of TK's quote from Baker 3. With that said, let's recap a few of the highlights. 1) Best name went to gratefuldad420@hotmail.com. Some runners up included: Chad Fernandez, SSBSTS, and Laid & Paid Bosses.

2) In case you wanted to listen to the song from Ryan Sublette's part again ;^)

3) Here's the visual round card, let's go over a few things.

SMLTalk-TriviaCard

    a) This is Tony Silva. This is Tony DaSilva.

    b) Pat Channita and Gideon Choi don't look anything alike. Come on people.

    c) VX Lee explaining that he recognized JB Gillet by the arm and the watch was incredible.

4) The forgotten Jamie Thomas part.

5) Shout out to 93 Til Infinity, the winning team, for pretty much smoking everybody, having multiple perfect rounds, and also being a team of 3, aka less than the maximum allowed. Really impressive/terrifying how much people know about skateboarding.

6) Jonjoe had one complaint, and that was that there wasn't enough Biebel. We didn't really have a response, so here's an insanely weird Biebel photo compilation to try and help make up for it.

Thanks again to everybody who was there, and to Rob Collins for taking photos, see you next time!
