More teams! More players! That seems to be the trend here at Kilarney's on Tuesday nights. The cavernous hall was raucous with crowd noise as Quizmaster Lou held court for our sovereign, King Trivia. It was like a scene out of a Robin Hood movie, where the impoverished bandits of Sherwood Forest feast and fight after a successful raid, each team representing a character out of Howard Pyle's classic. (Or pick your film version. Some of you will have imprinted on Kevin Costner, some on Russell Crowe and some even on Disney. As for me, I'll always be in Errol Flynn's camp!)

The Poonswagglers (who won big after two successful Double-or-Nothings) outpaced everyone, finishing 14 points ahead of the next best score for a well deserved first place win. Given their penchant for food, drink and gusto, plus their canon-like knowledge of trivia, they would have to be our Friar Tuck this evening. Tequila Mockingbirds, who took second, with their quiet good charm and reserved demeanor, much like a medieval lute, would be naturally cast in the role of Will Scarlet. Rounding out Robin's trio of best buds, and completing the winner's circle with a third place victory, another alliance between IFFY! and Blood, Bath & Beyond (playing as BBB this time) would squarely assign them as Little John. (I'm certain they had the tallest man in the pub at their table, but don't mention type casting!)

I'll Google It!, in fourth place just outside the winner's circle, seems a fitting choice for King Richard the Lion Hearted, who, in the legend, was ever mentioned and referred to, but rarely present. The Divorcees, making a good showing, demure at the bar and looking well, represent the essence of Maid Marian. Enter our newcomers, the Allen Fairview Chamber Friends. A well appointed, good looking bunch of folks, they embodied the spirit of nobility. To them, we cast the role (and in no way does this cast aspersions of character, merely an actor's role) of Prince John. Like that ill fated king, who squandered the throne of England on his cronies while Richard was away at the Crusades, so too did AFCF gamble too many Double-or-Nothing's and fail (four times in a row!). Finally, the role of Sheriff of Nottingham goes to team Woosah. They tried to multitask, playing pool and trivia simultaneously from the game room, but couldn't manage either. Well, I don't personally know how their pool game went, but they dropped out of KTPQ after round three. There was a dropped drink and a broken glass in their area, much like the Sheriff's ill fated pursuit of Robin Hood. Lots of clamor but no results.

And who, do you ask, played our titular hero? Well, I think you can deduce by now, that role was immodestly played by yours truly! After all, there's a little bit of Quizmaster Lou in all of us. But since I am Quizmaster Lou... Most of it must be in me! Have a great week, everyone!
