The Four Pints did pretty well at the Vodafone quiz night tonight, considering we only decided to enter last minute and were the only people representing the Temps at the event. Comprising of Toby, Kieron, Richie and myself, along with “bottle of Fanta” Rayhan, we battled our way to a comfortable third place, netting a very reasonable £50 between us.
In fact we managed to answer more questions correctly than any other team, but were beaten due to the bonus questions in each round which were rather overvalued at 10 points each (the same amount as answering every question right in any given round). Nonetheless, we beat ponytailed rocker Ross who took the trouble to snarl at us before returning to his beer. We were touched. And Peter and Lisa’s team trailed last which earned them a rather embarassing bag of lemons. Still, add a little tequila and salt and they’d be well on their way to drowning their sorrows.
As for us, we were just out for a bit of fun really, and secretly hoping we didn’t embarrass ourselves too much since we were a comparatively young team. Given our success, however, I feel we may well look into entering more of these things. Oh, and it’s always nice to feel your wallet is actually heavier as you head home from a night of drinking…
