I won, activate the balls!


So let me just begin by saying it was a lot closer than I thought it was going to be.  Our first matchup of Trivial Pursuit 90s' edition was hard fought and at the end of the day it came down to some lucky dice that helping me win.  That dear readers is as humble as this post is going to be, because frankly I won.

When Babe Ruth pointed past the outfield fence and hit his home run yeah it required some luck, but he was confident in his skill and backed up his boast with action.  I was confident in my mastery of the trivia of the 1990s' and I backed it up with a win.

Now I have to admit to a certain amount of hubris.  Nathan came on stronger than I anticipated, leading for much of the game.  I had expected him to do the worst out of everyone since he really has little interest in television or most of the popular cultural facts that make up a good game of Trivial Pursuit.  Nathan got all his pie pieces and so had as good a chance as anyone to win the game.

In fact everyone had their game pieces loaded with pies before I managed to put them out of their misery.  Now granted Ryan had help from his girlfriend Ashley during a part of the game, coincidently the spell of the game that he did best during, but I won't call that cheating though I will point out that if the game had been a Provincial Final Exam he'd have soooo been kicked out.

NathansnappleSpeaking of things we did in the 90s' I had a playlist on my iPod with tons of music from our formative decade, including some good tracks from the Cranberries (whom Aaron apparently has turned on since 1994), U2, the Smashing Pumpkins, Sloan, Oasis, Veruca Salt, Fionna Apple and others.  Ryan made fun of my selection of the Pet Shop Boys, but as anyone who knows Chris Sullivan can attest, they were a vital part of what we were listening to in our Walkmen back in high school.

Aaron supplied us with Snapple and Cool Ranch Doritios and Ryan snuck us beer in his backpack wrapped in t-shirts so his parents wouldn't find them and with the brief exception of the appearance of Ashley there were no girls to be seen.  We were so back in high school it's not even funny (just awesome).
