Week 5 of League of Champions is over. Why is there a picture of Speed Racer? Is it because when I win the lottery I’m going to buy a working replica of the Mach 5, dress up like Speed Racer and have an Asian kid and a monkey ride around in my trunk and then pop out unexpectedly when I pull up to anywhere in the Plaza District? Actually it’s because Speed drove the Mach 5 and League of Champions Week 5 is over. See how it all ties in together? Either way, I’m a damn genius.
Couple things to remember.
• Follow us on Twitter @TLOTriviaNight for all the latest TLO Trivia News and standings. Also, you might get your picture posted on there. Because you’re a winner. That’s why.
• There’s still a lot of time left for you to get a team together and earn a spot in our $1,500 Champions Match. If you forgot how that works, we award points based where teams finish at trivia night. The higher your team places, the more points they earn. The top 14 teams are then invited to the Champions Match.
So without any further malarkey, here’s your week five recap from our TLO Trivia Night venues.
