    QUIZ RECAP

    This quizmaster was a bit skeptical, I must admit, when Mike Pence None The Richer assistant manager Matt (with two "t"s) boldly declared that, "Tonight we begin our campaign to win the next King Trivia Tournament of Champions!"

    This statement of single-minded purpose came just before the start of this week's quiz at Golden Road Brewery in Glendale, and was driven, it seemed, by the perfect weather, the unique environment of Golden Road's side yard patio, and the recently announced final scores and winners from this year's TOC.

    Ah, the brash exuberance of youth! I thought to myself, chalking it up to possibly misguided confidence and potentially alcohol-infused certitude. But then I noticed team captain and chief executive Amy solemnly nodding her head in agreement, and I suspected that they had come "loaded for bear," as the old saying goes. (That's Matt - two "t"s - and Amy pictured there in photo #1)

    "But what about David?" I asked, referring to MPNTR's absent towel boy and locker room attendant. "Don't you think you're gonna need David?"

    "Double-Down David!?" Matt (two "t"s) huffed with surprise. "Nah! I mean, we like him and all, but he always wants to double down, and he's burned us a few times with unsuccessful doubles he talked us into. Besides, he's home sick tonight, so we're gonna do it ourselves!"

    And Amy just stood there quietly, with that icy don't-mess-with-me look on her face, nodding her head in agreement.

    And then they won! They WON! With a three-point margin!
    Get well soon, David!
