    The crowd at Killarney's huddled for warmth last night, as we embarked on our second King
    Trivia Pub Quiz for the month of February at that vaunted establishment. Winter is a
    strange time and as Ecclesiastes, Pete Seeger and the Byrds proclaim, To Everything, There
    is a Season. We laugh, we cry, we toast the dead and celebrate the newborn; And Quiz
    Master Lou looks at it all and thinks to himself, "Change is the only true constant in
    the universe..." So Turn! Turn! Turn! and face the strange... Ch, ch, ch, changes...
    (Thank you Mr. Bowie, as well.)

    Pickles on a Plate proved to be great with a stunning Double-or-Nothing in Round One and
    tenaciously keeping the lead through to game's end handing them a 46 point victory! Woo
    hoo! Tequila Mockingbird rebounded from a failed DoN and managed a comfortable 43 point
    second place position. Deadly Alliance (aka Blood, Bath & Beyond) two-stepped their way
    (as is their wont) into the winner's circle with 40 points. Nicely done, all. The old
    school, Wossa Matta-U, achieved fourthness while newbie team The Rookies effected fifthness!
    (How do you like that, Mr. Vernacular?!?) The Rookies did pretty good for a duo. Hope
    to see them back. The Junior League Ladie's Club, succumbing to pressure from their
    male colleagues, changed the name of their group to just Justice League, but succumbing
    to that other pressure, sufferaged (more like hemorrhaged) points with too many DoN's,
    thus doing justice to no one... Speaking of Doubling one's points away, newbie team,
    Lucky 13, finished last with the same stratagem. A word to the wise... 13 is only
    lucky if you're not a Mason.

    On the question set front, Stephen King's The Mist and Toho's King Ghidora gave teams
    the most trouble while Jon Favreau got mistaken for Vince Vaughn. (You naughty, clever
    quiz writers, you!) A hue and cry went up for more 80's era, MTV type music video stuff
    when most of the teams were clueless about Round Six's Match the Music Video to the Actor
    appearing in it motif, but all in all, a good time was had by all.

    QM Lou hopes y'all have a good time, too. See ya!
