August 12, 2015 Trivia Rankings

August 13, 2015

Wow. What a great night! 36 big teams started playing Tomato Jake’s trivia but only 33 finished. (So, no matter what your score, you at least did better than three teams that couldn’t stand the heat!)

Among the things we learned is that A-Rod did not play for Cleveland, silver is a transition metal and a back tattoo is neither accurate nor to scale.

Here are the rankings for the trivia action:

July 29 Trivia Rankings

July 29, 2015

I scream! You scream! We all scream for trivia!
