An Argentinian rock star by the name of “Francis” solidified a win for the Jolly Jokers Wednesday night in what was the first Trivia Ninjas Team Trivia competition at Zaffiro’s Pizzeria and Bar in Waite Park.
The Jokers bagged a trivia hog and snarfed-up 500 points with a little divine help.
He was born Jorge Bergoglio. But like Cher, Madonna, Beyonce, Adele and Rihanna, he now goes by only one name. What is that single name?
The answer, of course: Francis. As in Pope Francis I. ( See what we did there?)
The final scores from last night:
1. Jolly Jokers — 5,292
2. Paddle Faster, I Think I Hear Banjos! — 4,667 (This is the Team That Changes Its Name Every Week)
3. The Browncoats — 4,625
4. Steel Curtain — 4,250
5. I Don’t Always Have Arguments in my Head, But When I Do, I Win! — 4,167 (Formerly the Family Guy Reference Team)
There was a scoring adjustment in favor of Paddle Faster after we announced the winners, so they picked up a few extra points to push them past The Browncoats. Sorry, Browncoats — but a great effort in a close contest!
If you want to get in on the fun, join us at 6:30 each Wednesday night at Zaffiro’s Pizzeria and Bar at the Marcus Theatres Parkwood 17 complex in Waite Park.
