smart probably isn't the right word
Remember those years during high school when you were a member of the school�s quiz bowl team (or maybe, like me, it was the Battle of the Brains team)? And then you went to college (or, before college but while live on the air, you failed to answer "aperture" to a question about video cameras when you were the guy everyone thought of as the next big time Hollywood filmmaker) and you realized you weren�t nearly as smart as you thought you were? And after college, instead of reading the new Stephen Hawking book, you opted for a daily intake of Page Six? You thought you�d never best your friends in a game of Trivial Pursuit again. Heck, you never thought you�d find yourself playing Trivial Pursuit again (except when you got really, really baked and wondered what it would be like to connect a dozen boards together and have a massive game of Trivial Pursuit that involved all the different versions from the past two decades).
I�m here to inform you that it�s okay to play Trivial Pursuit again. This year Santa Claus brought me the recently released Trivial Pursuit DVD Pop Culture Boardgame. I played against my family twice after Christmas and it was a blast. Everything I�ve been studying for the past ten years of my life has lead up to this point. All those "Questions for the Movie Answer Man" I consumed in my mid-twenties, all those shows I�ve recorded on my DVR during the last four months and all that money spent on the Entertainment Weekly subscriptions will come into play as I kick the asses of my friends in a serious game or two of Trivial Pursuit tonight. Let the trash talking begin!
