First Loser

i have sad news to report.

Every season, around 1000 teams form to compete for the Atlanta trivia championship. Of those teams, 75 qualify for the tourney at the end. Team Keeferman usually finishes in the Top 10, but has never won it all. Tourney runners-up is the best we've managed -and that's not good enough.

Unfortunately, this past weekend, we just repeated that humility. Again, our team failed to live up to it's brainpower. We finished 2nd. This apology is directed first and foremost to my teammates, whom i let down. If only I'd known the lasT name of the Nick who performed "Hot Child In the City" in 1978...
