Sudden drama! That was the situation at the Lion & Crown Public House as we gathered for
our usual Thursday night soiree' of cheer, beer and trivia. Our first sudden drama took
place when Pickles on a Plate started off the evening with a first place lead in Round
One. Infrequent players the Footclan, who show up quarterly but usually win, grabbed the
lead and held it for rounds two through five. Then, sudden drama! Blood, Bath & Beyond
bled into the top spot on Round Six and ended with a 58 point win in for the final.
Smart Asses got second with 57 points while... Get this. Footclan duked it out with
Walker Texas Rangers over a 56 point tie, managing to win the tie breaker for third!
Quiz Master Lou enjoyed some dramatic buffalo wings, a couple of pints of dramatic
Guiness and a dramatic game of darts or two with Matt after the game was over. The
first game was dramatic, being tied all the way to the final two bullseyes. The second
game was, well... Perhaps histrionic is a better word. (QM Lou won!) Drama!
Perhaps all this drama is a good lead up to the Tournament of Champions? Some of my
local Texas teams are in the top percentile. Tequila Mockingbird and Stealth Texas
just to name a couple.
Kudos to the quiz writers who managed a great cross section of literature, history,
pop culture, sports and consumerism in the question sets this week. Very dramatic!
Have a terrific weekend, hopefully without all the drama...
