We came in third place but the "Goonies" came in next to last! Or, it's all in how you look at it!

Putting a positive spin on a less than stellar performanceOur team played trivia last night just as we always do every Monday night. It's a regular social event that we we enjoy and we do quite well at it, and at the same time we all get to enjoy a night out!

Last night the crowd was a bit sparse, I presume due to all of the wet weather that we have been having. There's been quite a bit of flooding and more rain is on the way.

As it turns out, there were only three teams playing, so we were guaranteed at least third place. So we were in pretty good shape until the dreaded final question was asked: Name the four elected vice-presidents that ascended to the presidency but were never elected as president."

Needless to say, we stumbled on this question, and finished in third place out of three teams. But I'm always one to put a positive spin on everything, and so when asked how we did I said:

"Great! We came in third place but our arch-rivals The Goonies came in next to last!"

Another beautiful picture

So, who were the 4 VP's  - did you everfind out?  Don't make me Google this, please.

Could it be that the competitors who did not show up were in the closet watching Monday Night Football?

Richard, I clicked on the comments to see if there was anyone out there who knew the answer!  I got Gerald Ford.  I would have been no help to your team!

To All...

Here was my logic...Gerald Ford was not an elected vice-president, so he was not one of the four. Also, LBJ was elected after the Kennedy assassination, and Theodore Roosevelt was also elected after the McKinley assassination!

Also, Harry Truman was elected (Dewey defeats Truman) after the death of FDR. So he was out. I knew that Andrew Johnson who ascended after the Lincoln assassination was impeached, so he was definitely one of them. That's when it got harder!
