We are the Champions

Girls Rule. Boys Drool.

Brian and Zack thought they could defeat us. Little did they know that they had started an epic battle. And they were about to be obliterated.

Last October/November, we made a bet. Jessica vs. Zack. Erika vs. Brian. On facebook, there is this application for the show, The Office, and you can play a trivia game on it. Being that all four of us are pretty big fans of the show, we decided to hold a contest. The original bet was to break the top 500 trivia players by the end of the month. Erika and Jessica accomplished this in a week.

So the bet changed a little. And the stakes went up. Whoever was ranked the highest by Christmas would win and the loser would buy them McDonald's.

Jessica ended up being ranked #65 and Erika #67. Zack and Brian weren't even in the 60's.

The sad thing is, for all of November/December, the application had run out of questions for Jessica and Erika, and not for Brian and Zack.

And yet, we still won.

So they had to take us to McD's. But they didn't even until last week. It just goes to show who the real procrastinators are.

We had a great time. And we have the pictures to prove it.

And to illustrate this point about guys not being competitive and being losers, we have this quote from Andy Bernard:

"[holding in anger after losing contest] I am okay if I lose every single contest today. Honestly. Because I see these contests as an opportunity for me to demonstrate what a good sport I am. Mallard! [throws a rock at the duck]."

Good sports. Bah.

Being winners is where it's at. As you can tell by the look of sheer disappointment with himself in the pictures of Zack and Brian.

Maybe if they had better taste in sports teams, they would win more. Indians and Spartans - perennial losers.
