Quiz Teams (and standings):
Srinivas/Swapnil/Varun (second place): Last long connect them got them a second place. Other than "tom" "katie" and "scientology", they didn't have preposterous answers :-)
Apurva/Shantanu/VarunA: A vociferous team which took a while to get off the blocks and were unlucky to lose a bunch of sitters due to rookie "answer blurting" and team positioning.
Ayan/Deepak/VarunG (and one more):
Gaurav/Harsha/Murali (third place): This week's top seed got them off to a blazing start, they were leading for almost two-thirds of the quiz, but a middle order collapse let other teams catch up with them.
Ayshwarya/Pranav/Vyas (and one more) (first place): Converted a slow start with some steady answers -- got lucky with a QM's favorite +4 question. But it didn't matter in the end, some good answers ("rolling stones gather moss" and "Augusta masters") and last-minute guesses (music questions) saw them through.
Nishtha/Pranjal/Vinay/Vikram: Gave some nice guesses, but were incorrect. Nice answer to the "tipu sultan" question -- they just went ballistic in answering that rocket question, ironic huh :-)
League Standings (after Quiz 2) are now in a Google spreadsheet at http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pad8OkPTEUANT0-QEnI_oTA
Next week, Gaurav and Harsha are co-organizing the quiz.
Ps. Loved the "CCA" question, brilliant find, Keshav!
