    The atmosphere at the Lion & Crown in Allen was strangely low energy last night. The players seemed a little, well... lethargic. Maybe it was the soft spring winds with their soothing though temporary coolness before the expected hot, muggy summer heat sets in. Sometimes a change in the weather can put one into a state of complacency, where one just sits, sips their drink and fixates on nothing in particular. If such a thing were possible, I would almost say it was like people were "Turning to Stone"... Hey! With apologies to the Electric Light Orchestra...


    The pub house seats are empty now
    (Quizmaster just came in the door)
    The teams are picking at their food
    Turning, turning, turning
    A voice comes out my microphone
    (The echoes of my plight)
    Of everything that is alive in my quiz world

    You turn to stone when I am gone
    You turn to stone, turn to stone
    When you perkin' up?
    I must go on

    The general questions in Round One
    (Is fire that slowly stirred the brain)
    Took pen in hand to get it done
    Thinking, thinking, thinking
    Too many teams tried to X the box
    (For Double or Nothings)
    Laid down to get my final score
    In my quiz world

    You turn to stone when I am gone
    You turn to stone, turn to stone
    When you comin' up?
    I must go on
    Turn to stone when I am gone
    You turn to stone
    Yes you're turning to stone
    'Cause my quizin' is done
    If you're turning to stone
    I've been gone for too long
    And you can't carry on
    Yes you're turning, you're turning
    you're turning to stone

    The R.O.U.S. showed up again
    (Team Testa and the Hilltoppers)
    Stealth Texas, Ship It!, Blood, Bath & Beyond

    Thinking, thinking, through all that gin
    But three teams took it to the gate
    (Ninja Turtles reclaimed their throne)
    Men of Troy and Pickles on a Plate
    To my quiz world
    Turn to stone when I am gone
    You turn to stone

    Quizmaster Lou suggests you YouTube the song and sing along. That's all folks! Have a great week!
