1997 – “The T-Files”

It was one in the morning in early February in St. Cloud, Minnesota.  A small group of people assembled on the shores of Lake George, an over-sized pond in the middle of the city.  That year, Jolt Cola was a sponsor of the contest and one of the items the company provided were jock straps with the company’s logo on the cod piece.

Captain F. can be heard saying “The Trivia is out there” which is taken from The T-files audio theater production where he was tapped as the series announcer.
