In our Monday night trivia games, we’ve been successfully holding onto first place all season, though it’s looking like it will be a fight to keep our spot for the remaining seven weeks of the season. We are definitely not accustomed to being in this position! Usually we’re the ones on “the attack,” not playing defense… we’ve always been at our best playing like underdogs – like dark horse contenders – not as “that team that wins all the time.”
Which is why I’m really enjoying the “other” trivia nights so much (Wednesday and Thursday). We’re playing strictly for prize money and for a chance to see how we measure up against the best. It’s no fun for me to have to “defend” first place – I’m in this for the love of the chase for prizes and the pure love of the game.
Us not ending up in first for our Monday games won’t keep us out of semis…but we do want to “claim” this bar as a conquest!
