Tonight, I learned why it is important to know an alcohol consuming sports fan and invite them to King Trivia.  It pays off when the questions are mostly about sports and alcohol.  Two subjects my teachers always told me to not pay attention to in high school.  Little did Mrs. Duberstein know that I needed to study those topics in order to beat Mooch Ado About Nothing (AKA Westeros Baptist Church AKA the number one ranked team in league play!).  This team is notorious at Arsenal for their constant winning.  Tonight was a different story though.  I saw them struggling late in the 5th round when they failed to double down successfully with the connection round.  The common bond was classic cocktails and, I learned during this round, this number one team does not drink alcoholic beverages (is that how they are ranked number one?!).  They doubled down anyway since they were desperate for an instant 20 point boost.  That did not go in their favor, unfortunately.  They then proceeded to fail doubling down two more rounds to end the game.  They were definitely out of their element tonight, which is weird to see.  I guess that goes to show you that when it comes to bar trivia, it is helpful to have a variety of different lifestyles within your group.  I would now take this time to find an alcohol guzzling sports fan to join your ranks, Westeros Baptist Church.  Shouldn't be too hard to find in this crazy town.
