Awesome and awesomeness was the atmosphere at the Lion & Crown last night as we head into
the Christmas holiday season. The stalwartness (if that is a word) cannot be underplayed
of our regular teams, who show up faithfully each Thursday for King Trivia Pub Quiz. That
being said, it is the newbies who pop up and throw themselves into the fun who also rate

A table of patrons who styled themselves Thomas Team played with great panache and
enthusiasm. The Street Smarts, three ladies of singular intellect and savvy, actually
held second place for three rounds running; And that, without the benefit of a registration
two point bonus! Finally, my personal fave were the chaps at the bar who adopted the
moniker Jonny Quest. Being men after Quiz Master Lou's own heart, we waxed jubilant on
the retro merits of the Quest cartoons, each professing their favorite episode. The jolly
fellow on crutches voted for The Invisible Monster, while his bearded companion chose
Turu the Terrible. Yours Truly opted for Terror Island. In the space of signing up a
new team, a common bond of fellowship was celebrated and joy was spread. It didn't
matter that they dropped out after Round Three to watch the game.

Ninja Turtles retained their resident champ status once again with a 58 point win. (I
think it's the baby!) Bar Guy and the rowdies won second while the Hooligans got third.
Highlights of the evening included Quiz Master Lou's incredulity at how many people knew
the answers to the Round Two Plush Pal toys; And, the appreciation he received for warbling
the first stanza of Viva Las Vegas in his best Elvis impression. Thanks, all.

Stay well, friends!
