Keyword: Excitement! Thursday's King Trivia Pub Quiz at the Lion & Crown in Allen last
night was all that. In the knowledge of trivia, Lady Luck's cousin is Sister Smart. And
like her cousin, she has a habit of moving around the room. This was evidenced by the
constantly shifting lead, as it passed from team to team. Newbies Live Buzzed or Die took
the top rank in round two, but lost it to Pickles on a Plate in round four. Round five
saw the Smart Asses move into first but they were knocked out in round six by Stealth
Texas, who in turn got overtaken by the Blood, Bath & Beyond/Ship It! Alliance in the
final round. Exciting enough for you?

As per usual, the questions were pretty good, too. Quiz Master Lou kept 'em guessing in
the General Knowledge with some creative swapping. Those who didn't know the Thursday FB
question made a pretty good alternate guess as to the name of the Austin Powers themed
club that opened in Glendale. Unable to recall the Electric Pussycat, Gold Members Only
was an informed theory.

The real bug bear was the Picture Round, matching famous people to their statues. It was
Freddie Mercury's sculpture that perplexed most folks: And, as customary, led to some
interesting if not downright amusing guesses. David Bowie, John Travolta and Jerry Lee
Lewis were all plausible, but it was team Walker Texas Ranger's reckoning that it was
Teddy Roosevelt that blew our minds! Quiz Master Lou's pressure cooker brain went into
sudden overdrive at that thought, hearing in his mind's ear, an unusual version of
Bohemian Rhapsody...

Is this San Juan Hill?
Is this reality?
Caught in a broadside,
No escape from artillery.

Jump on your horse,
Gallup to the top and seeeeeee...
I'm just a colonel, I'm not a resident,
Because I'm easy come, easy go, little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows I'll still be president...

With apologies to Queen.
