There, I said it. I feel better now.
I am addicted to NTN trivia which, for those who do not know, is the trivia game you can play in some restaurants and bars where you compete against other locations. I am not alone in this addiction for E is also an addict, just not quite as addicted as I.
We found the games at a local restaurant just over a year ago and began playing on Friday nights when we had our date nights. We noticed that there was a tournament that took place every Tuesday night involving a game called Showdown. We began to suspect that there must be a group that played together at this location and that was confirmed one night when our waitress told us that they had finished the last tournament ranked fourth in their league. I began to salivate. I needed to meet these people. I needed to play in this tournament.
Why? Because I am extremely competitive. None of my friends will play Trivial Pursuit with me anymore. My brother is the only one who will dare and that's because he's as competitive as I am. We are the children of our father, who no one in their right mind wants to play Monopoly with.
E and I finally met a few members of the "team" and we've been hanging out with them just over a year now. We make national rankings pretty often and even had a perfect game of a game called Speed last week. Going into our game tonight we were ranked #42 overall of about 4500 locations in the US and Canada. On a good night there are about 10 of us who show up and spend several hours eating and sharing trivia answers together. It has been a great way for E and I to get to know new people in a city that neither of us is from. It has also been a great outlet for all that competitiveness that I have bottled up.
Yep, I'm a trivia geek and I'm danged proud of it. :-)
