As always, a wonderful time was had by all at the Lion & Crown in Allen last night. Eleven teams scrambled for admittance to the winner's circle. All were regulars or irregulars (we hadn't seen Guess-a-Lot in a while, and there they were!). The exception was a young couple who wandered over from their usual haunt, the sister pub, Lion & Crown in Addison. Interestingly, they had played King Trivia there, but never as a team before (or perhaps they had played as part of another team?). In any case, they named themselves We Couldn't Agree on a Team Name and registered as such. And while they reached no accord on a squad moniker, they certainly managed to get their quiz answers in line. This duo stole the lead with an early Double-or-Nothing and nearly took first place before getting knocked out in Round Six! Congratulations, WCAOATN!

THE WINNERS: Round Six separated the wheat from the chaff, as they say... Stealth Texas, under Matt and Tito's guidance, snuck into first place. Beer Logic won the tie breaker with Pickles on a Plate for second and third respectively. (It was the University of Chicago that caused the tie, so blame them!)

THE QUIZ: No one would have ever imagined that reading Anne of Green Gables might one day lead to answering a geography question about Prince Edward Island correctly, but it did! It was a little known legend that the mythical Huldufolk of Iceland were so named by Olaf the Red, when he awoke one night to find the enigmatic creatures in his backyard and he impulsively shouted, "Hey! Huldufolk are you?!?" Historians have firmly identified Deadwood as ground zero for foul language in the old west. Notre Dame, Brown and UCLA did not make the list, though many wanted them to.

Since it has been my lot to find,

At every parting of the road,

The helping hand of comrade kind,

To help me with my heavy load,

And since I have no gold to give,

And love alone must make amends,

My humble prayer is while I live,

G-d grant me worthy of my friends!


Have a great week, everyone!
