We came SO close to having a perfect My Trivia Live game hosted by Stacy last night…now if only we had a true home-ec “goddess” playing with us who would know how many tablespoons are in a cup…c’est la vie! Still good teamwork all around, though beer money eluded us. This time we had myself, Mike, Brad, John and Joel, we managed 70 points before the final question, which we missed on a virtual coin toss. Again, c’est la vie, que sera, sera! And the questions…
