This week marked the thrilling return of my speaker system at full health!  For the last few weeks, your humble Quizmaster was limited to one speaker due to an equipment misfortune.  Thanks to my heroic audio engineer friend Greg (thanks dude!) and his practiced skill at wielding a soldering iron, my music and voice were once again able to echo to all corners of the Trivia Kingdom.

What with the exciting/provocative/educational/terrifying political spectacle that had taken place on television the night before this game, I endeavored to provide some levity for the Drinking Round while still maintaining contemporary relevance to said event.  And so: having assembled a list of every single character who appeared on the TV show "The West Wing" in a speaking role, I humbly asked the teams to name as many of these as they could.

Having just finished watching all 156 episodes myself in an embarrassingly short time, the score of this humble Quizmaster - should I have played - would have potentially been equally embarrassing.  The winning team however, who correctly named 28 characters for their win, displayed no shyness at all in their victory.  Indeed, after I called their triumph, a representative from the General Washingtons rushed up to my trivial tower, and thanked me for "finally asking something in [her] wheelhouse" (obviously I had no knowledge this would be the case) and then planted an unexpected kiss on my cheek.

It's good to be the King!
