Action at the Lion & Crown in Allen, Texas included four (count ‘em!) new teams last night. Welcome to Team Testa, Team Ram Jam, the Kung Fu Pandas and the Dim Bulbs (who grow tall and dark!).
Suffice it to say it was a close edged competition with no less than four (count ‘em!) contestants tied for first place at the end of Round 4! But after all was said and done, Stealth Texas swooped in for the First Place honors while Pickles on a Plate and IFFY! took second and third respectively.
SPECIAL AMUSEMENT AWARDS: Every so often, when a team doesn’t know the answer, they throw in a non sequitur in desperation. Often they are hilarious. In honor of these improvised wits that go down with the ship, Quizmaster Lou spotlights the efforts of these defiant misfires!
Misidentified: Sheryl Sandberg is neither Chesty Larue nor Jenna Jameson. Mary Barra isn’t Alexis Texas, either.
Politically Incorrect: Round 7 provided some guesses at some countries you wouldn’t want to eat in and we won’t mention them here!
Self Deprecating: Quizmaster Lou calling Crochet “Croquet” and then finally figuring out why he never got the ball through the wicket with a hook and needle!
SPECIAL SMART AWARDS: Blood, Bath & Beyond deserves special mention for being the only team that knew what a syzygy was! (And I was the only one in the joint who thought it was an X-Files episode…)
Until next week, folks... I remain... Yours.
