Things are heating up on Thursday nights at the Lion & Crown in Watter's Creek! Thirteen teams
(hope no one's superstitious) crowded into the main room and dominated the bar area as well as
we all settled in for a fantastic round of King Trivia Pub Quiz!

Newbie team mentions:
Everybody Settle Down! - A family of three who placed well for first timers and whose name
gave Quizmaster Lou a chance for some schtick. You know, "Everybody settle down! No, that's
the name of the team..." Well, it plays better when you're there.
Dawg Pound - A couple who held their own against seasoned vets of the trivia wars.
Cheeky Monkee's - I spelled their name like the music group. They spelled it properly.
I'm Sorry I'm Late, but Tom Brady let the air out of my Tires - Who suggested I just shorten
their name to "I'm Sorry"... Well played, sir. Well played.

Congrats to Pickles on a Plate, who stole first from Stealth Texas in the last two rounds. ST
settled for second while Bar Guys just edged out Beer Logic for third. Another shout out to the
quiz writers for a splendid question set. The Round Six religious founders set was particularly
challenging and engaging. Also, the Round Seven TV Emmy nominees question yanked a lot of chains.

Pursuant to that, our parting shot comes from Groucho Marx: "I find television very educating.
Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book." Happy weekend
every body!
