Every year, the competition for the Capital District’s trivia elite becomes more and more acute. And there are only two trophies worth winning for the bar and tavern trivia teams – the big bowl from February’s Trivia Bowl, and the summer classic “Silver Shaker” of Summer Bowl.
And today is the day for Summer Bowl, the sixth annual showcase of the immortals.
Over time, my Street Academy trivia team has evolved and grown and changed rosters and continued on a winning streak. In fact, not only is the Street Academy the defending champion in Summer Bowl, we’ve won three of the last five (and lost one of those two trophies in a tiebreaker).
The thing is… there are a couple dozen teams that want this championship. And they’re ready to take it.
And we’re ready to defend it.
And this afternoon, at 1pm at the Holiday Inn Express in Latham…
The competition begins once again.
Here are the teams for Summer Bowl VI….
- Street Academy (Summer Bowl Champions I, III, V)
- Tap This (Summer Bowl Champions II)
- Send It In Jerome (Summer Bowl Champions IV)
