    Even though a deluge of rain threatened, the turnout was still pretty good at the Lion & Crown pub in Allen, TX last night.  It was also a night of firsts as three teams simultaneously and successfully Doubled-or-Nothing in Round One and tied for first place! 

    It was a horse race as Shredder Squad, Pickles on a Plate and The Misfits crowded out the rest for the One, Two and Three spots respectively until Ninja Turtles ambushed themselves into third place in Round Five with their own double or nothing win, reminding everyone why they are the 27th ranked team nationally…  Nevertheless, Shredder Squad prevailed for the evening by virtue of having the sole Disney maniac on their team! 

    New teams:  The Brewsual Suspects (great name, BTW!) managed to stay relevant while Too Drunk to Remember bailed early having forgotten they were playing. 

    Men of Troy was actually only a Man of Troy, playing solo for most of the evening until Priam and Hector showed up to lend a helping hand around midgame.  (I think Odysseus dropped them off on his way home…)  Showing the recklessness of an Achilles, their overuse of Double-or-Nothing betting razed their chances to the ground.  Too bad they didn’t have a Cassandra to help them out.  It probably wouldn’t have worked anyway.  (sigh) 

    Kudos to Blood, Bath & Beyond, Ship It! and Beer Logic whose usual, competitive gamesmanship kept everyone on their toes and the tone honorable. 

    As for me, Quizmaster Lou roundly tortured everyone with his Irish accent during the Theme Round, sounding like a cross between Barry Fitzgerald and Mrs. Doyle.  Cultural Appropriation?  You betcha’! 

    Until next week me bucko’s….
