Sorry – I had to taunt Joe one more time.
If you haven’t seen it already – check the post below for the FINAL results and Leaderboard.
Now, would you look at that. I helped to hasten the holiday. As I write this, we are buried in snow and mere days from the most wonderful time of the year. I hope everyone enjoyed this year’s edition of the Ho Ho Ho Throwdown. It’s more work than I ever realize it’s going to be (especially when you jump from 2 to 15 contestants) but I have a great time coming up with the questions and running the show, so it’s all worth it.
While Sean and I were tossing a few back at the British Beer Company we decided that next year, if we get started early enough, we can make the submission process a bit easier. So look for some high-tech wizardry for the 2009 edition.
Also – as I teased a few days ago – I’m planning on launching an Eighties Pop Culture themed trivia contest. Now, I know some will groan thinking the questions will all skew toward Balki and Punky Brewster – but remember this is the same decade that gave us Die Hard and Predator. I plan to hit all bases. The game will start Monday January 5th and run for 6 rounds – following the same structure we employed this time. I’ll post a reminder when we get closer.
As for this year’s contest, Sean won the big prize followed by Rob and then Matt in third place. I’ll mail Rob his prize (he’s in Ohio afterall) but will hand-deliver Sean and Matt their prizes the next time I see them. Don’t expect anything grand. Just a little pop-culture themed token to prove you won. Now, as for the rest of the world, I present a little celebratory video featuring our winners and their task master as one final treat.
