I'll take more than another riverful

Last night we won the pub quiz at O'Brien's, a victory all the sweeter since we beat out a team with both Brad Rutter and Jerome Vered. (In the Jeopardy Ultimate Tournament of Champions, Brad Rutter came first, Ken Jennings came second, and Jerome Vered came third. Brad Rutter has currently won more money on game shows than anyone else on planet Earth.)

According to O'Brien's rules, the leading team must win by more than one-half point to avoid a tie-breaker question. We won by three-quarters of a point. Brad and Jerome had to use some of their game show millions to pay their own bar tab! This marked the fifth consecutive week that Maribeth had been on the winning team.

Afterwards Maribeth and I went out for coffee with Jerome.

Brad had his publicist with him.

I'm sure Maribeth could win without any help from her friends, but I'm sorry Jerome uses such offensive terminology.

Jerome seems cool.

I miss O'Brien's. I'll be very happy when I can come back and be a retard rhinoceros again.

He sounds like a real charmer. Did Maribeth go home with him or you?
