Wow!  Great gamesmanship at the Lion & Crown this Thursday night as our pub filled up with returning regulars.  Resident teams The Ninja Turtles, IFFY!, Stealth Texas and Beer Logic were joined by our absent usuals Ship It!, Pickles on a Plate, Blood, Bath & Beyond and long time no see duo, The Bastard Barristers; Who, demonstrating their trivia prowess yet again, took Second Place!  Joining our happy bands were new comers, The Bookees, who audaciously grabbed Third Place honors.  First Place went to Stealth Texas again this week, though the battle for the lead looked like a horse race.

Beer Logic took the lead in round one, only to get tied with the Ninja Turtles in round two.  Round three saw Stealth Texas grab the lead and hold on to it until the end.  The second and third place battles were like the chariot race from Ben-Hur…  All over the track and colliding with each other! 

Resident champs, the Ninja Turtles, had two terrible turns of luck,  First, the Guess Who Round really threw them for a loop.  Virtually all the other teams guessed correctly on the first clue, but the NT’s guessed wrong, putting them almost ten points behind everyone else!  It was like that scene in the movie where the military commander asks for a volunteer for a dangerous mission and all the troops except for the one clueless guy, takes a step backward…  Ouch!  Then, to add insult to injury, on their one chance to win with a Double or Nothing on Round Seven, they got one answer wrong, thus blowing their ranking to last place!  Double ouch… 

Actually, there was one question in round seven that took the wind out of a lot sails.  Quiz Master Lou won’t say what it is, but those who were there will understand.  And so, it is with a wink and a nod to all those who failed the same question that I leave you with this song… 

When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more lies and no derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
