Hey Ken -- I saw your event at Town Hall Seattle last week. Don't tell anyone, but I think they might have stacked the deck a little in favor of the home team. I'm a contributor to Seattlest, and I've got a short recap up on the site.
I'm the guy who mentioned I write trivia questions for a local pub, so appreciated that chapter. Which I still do. I hadn't yet gotten to your Stevens Point trivia chapter, which hit very close to home for me because I went to Lawrence University, also in Wisconsin, and home to the Great Midwest Trivia Contest. Which, upon reading about UWSP, doesn't sound like quite the madhouse you experienced, but for a 1200-student school, we did what we could.
And you're right -- the question-song montage was the high point of the evening.
