    Quizmaster Lou can always tell when the questions are too easy. The number of Double-or-Nothings goes up. Out of eleven teams, nine Double-or-Nothing'd in Round One. All but one got it. Five DoN'd in
    the Second Round. Six teams DoN'd in Round Three. Needless to say, there were some pretty high scores at the Lion & Crown last night. In the end, the Hilltoppers brought home the victory foliage with an
    86 point win. Tequila Mockingbirds squawked into second place with 83 and Stealth Texas furtively acquired an 82 point third place ranking.

    Quizmaster Lou apologizes to the Shredder Squad, whom he always mistakes for the Royal Flush gang. (Do you ever get that thing, where you mistakenly imprint an association incorrectly and can't seem to get it right?) Welcome to newbies Middleagers + 1 and (drum roll please), Flying Solo in the Mile High Club, who wins the evening's Dubious Honors Award for Creative Titling.

    Sometimes, Quizmaster Lou looks out at the audience and sees strange and interesting metaphors taking place. Sometimes, he sees King Trivia Pub Quiz as a vast castle under siege by hordes of medieval warriors. The questions are like boulders, launched from trebuchets, sent into the ranks of the assailants. The seige towers and scaling ladders of the combatants are the quiz pages, turned into
    the Quizmaster like flights of arrows. The competing teams are groups of knights, encamped around the walls of the castle. After a long day's hard fought battle, the weary soldiers gather to drink mead and
    feast upon whatever game animal is roasting on the spit of their campfire, the flickering flames illuminating their individual banners hung above their tents... And other times, Quizmaster Lou looks
    out... And doesn't see that.

    Tonight's parting shot comes to us from Marie Antoinette. On her way to the guillotine, she accidentally stepped on the toe of her executioner. Her last words: "Pardonnez-moi, Monsieur." In
    life, we cannot always win. Sometimes we lose and sometimes we lose big. The only control we have in life is the manner in which we do it. It may be better to be remembered as having gone out with a
    touch of civilized style and dignity than to indulge in our baser, courser emotions.
