Braggin' Rights: I'm (Going To Be) On TV!

Yesterday I took a couple hours off work to film Braggin' Rights, a local sports trivia competition on Metro Sports. I didn't know what to expect.

It was a blast!

On television it looks like this. If you don't feel like clicking, there are two teams--a guest team (us) and "The Posse" (sports guys/ringers). The other team isn't present; we are taped at different times and locations.

After both teams are introduced, a question appears on the TV. They show us giving our answer, then the Posse gives it a try, then the correct answer is revealed. Each episode is ten questions long, and we taped four total episodes that will run on consecutive days (probably next month).

The actual taping simply consisted of us being asked all 40 questions in succession. The rest is editing.

We talked a lot of the questions out and came up with the right answer more often than not. In fact, we scored a more-than-respectable 34 out of 40. That may not be enough to unseat the Posse, but we definitely didn't embarass ourselves.

I'm really eager to see how this turns out.
