AAJA Trivia Bowl: ChicagoNow defends its title in OT thriller

For the second straight year, ChicagoNow captured the Asian American Journalists Association Trivia Bowl. There was a lot of drama as three teams -- ChicagoNow, Crain's and WBEZ -- were all tied at the end of regulation. The final tiebreaker question asked the teams to name as many second-most populous cities in each state as they could. I think they had five minutes to do this.

Turned out to not even be close, the CN team blew away the competition to win again after shocking the world in 2011. I couldn't be there to enjoy it so I had to settle for following tweets from CN blogger @LucyALloyd:

Thanks to AAJA for a wonderful event and congratulations to our champs for making everyone proud!
