you didnt say the crew you said the other team so i assumed you were talking about the chiefs which do sell out every game. Seeing as it seems pretty unlikely any mls soccer team is selling out every game since the league is almost going under

the reason they sell out is columbus loves it soccer, and there stadium is a true soccer stadium and holds only 24,000 maybe less. some teams do well, and with adu they should do well for awhile

adu is just a short term fix as soon as he grows up he wont be anything special to non soccer fans i mean the u.s. had pele playing here and even that couldnt get soccer really going

so.. the KIng of the Hill episode was stupid..

matches are not one school v. one school per day...and the questions aren't mostly pop culture


but the studying was accurate..

i know Jimmy only knows all of Thornton WIlder's works because he has read them all

I wish there was more pop culture, and I doubt mike judge did in depth reseach into quiz bowl

Mike judge is great though.. except for King of the Hill.. Office Space and Beavis and Butthead do America were two hilarious films

Not every state has the same format. Kansas only has 20 tossups in a game, but in Florida that's just the first period!
Some smaller schools around compete in conference duals, namely those in the Clarence Cannon Conference (moderatorguy, back me up!)
I'll have to check Texas's SAA site to see if they actually sanction academic competition, and if not who does.

As for what I know of teams in Texas: Soccoro sucks (they were a farce at nationals) and the Kincaid School of Houston often makes top four.

There are also a few other good schools: St. John's from Houston, good on national level; Cistercian and Plano East, both very good on the state scene.
