    A new record for Quizmaster Lou, who had to wrangle twelve (12) teams at the Lion & Crown last night.  (I know some of you other Quizmasters have to handle that and more on a regular basis…  So now I have a greater appreciation for QM’s who work the big joints!)  Perhaps it was the holiday mood or the fact that during the lull between Christmas and New Year’s, most folks don’t have to get up for work/class in the morning; But whatever it was, the joint was packed! 

    Newbies Two Dollar Bill Y’all, Misfits and Bloomington got in on the action, along with some teams we haven’t seen in a while – Blood, Bath & Beyond, Pickles on a Plate, Rogue One and Royal Flush, who threatened to take first place but settled for second.  L&C regulars IFFY!, Beer Logic and Ship It! mixed it up while resident champs Ninja Turtles took third and Stealth Texas snuck in for a last minute win of first place. 

    And now, Quizmaster Lou shall pontificate…  That curious period between Christmas and New Year’s is indeed, an unusual time of the year.  It is a time of cheer and joy.  It is a time of sadness.  It is a time for reflection.  It is a time for gluttony and a time for restraint.  Maybe it’s just me, but I just got the feeling people are a tad more hopeful this holiday season.  Or maybe what I’m feeling is a giddy excitement about the uncertainty of the future.  It is times like this when I recall the teachings of my former master, Kwai Chang Caine, who once told me, “Is it not better to seek understanding of the future, than to wallow in the mistakes of the past?

    Happy Holidays, All!
