Break out your "Best of Europe" CD and get ready to crank up "The Final Countdown". Ladies and gentlemen (and readers of Plastic Hallway) IT IS ON. The long awaited showdown is almost here. We are now less than a week away from what very well might someday be known as the "Bleedin' at Keegan's." Okay so it ain't the Thriller in Manila. You try to find something that rhymes with Keegan's. Other than vegans that is.
Anyway, the important thing is that next week talk radio maven Hugh Hewitt is finally going to be forced to put his money where his mouth is. Hugh will lead an "all-star" team of trivia competitors into Keegan's Irish Pub to face off against the vaunted Fraters squad. Rumor has it that Michael Medved and James Lileks will be teaming up with Hugh (and answering 99% of the questions for him).
We don't have any of those fancy Ivy League-schooled, book learnin' types on our side, but we are proud to announce the addition of Michael J. Nelson to the Fraters trivia team. We may not have the intellectual fire power of Hugh's team, but we won't be lacking for wise cracking commentary come next Thursday. And we're much better looking.
Mark your calendars. Thursday August 26th commencing round about 9pm. Keegans Irish Pub in Nordeast Minneapolis. Folks you do not want to miss this one. It is goin' be huge.
