Editor’s Note: This is a recap written by a rival team from 2013. Enjoy!

September 5, 2013 · 

 

 

Congrats again to one of our very near and dear team members who yesterday became a father to a brand new baby girl. He is out of commission for a bit, likely studying up on where the baby’s name has ranked historically in baby name popularity charts.

Anyway, it’s my pleasure to fill in as guest writer and I hope I cover all the bases. As previously posted, great night last night at Sporcle Live – Detroit at JT’s Pub and Grill. 128 points and two first place finishes, despite a few missteps along the way. We here at More Beer Less Pants strive for nothing less than perfection. On with the show:
