Another week, another sketchy question…
The question was: which state’s governor did Obama just name as head of Health and Human Services?
The trivia host alleges that the answer is the Kansas. But this blogger is an actual Kansan, and so I can tell you with some authority that there’s not much noteworthy about Kansas except basketball, and as of Monday’s Missouri/Kansas game, we don’t even have that anymore. So that fact that this flew under my radar seriously surprised me. And apparently it surprised all the major news sources as well. As of Tuesday, no one is reporting that Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius is anything more than one of several possible candidates. Much like our new president, it appears as if our MC could do more vetting. (UPDATE! A mere two weeks after our trivia MC announced it, it’s official–Kathleen Sebelius will finally be named to Health and Human Services today!)
Luckily, any frustration we had about the questions was quickly erased by the lovely 42 Below Vodka girls who gave us plenty of swag, including a t-shirt tiny enough to fit a small child.
But on to the important stuff! Here are the standings as of week 3.
1st Place: Backstreet Boyeez
2nd Place: Beer Makes Smart
3rd Place: Grant and Co.
