Everyone was in the Christmas spirit at the Lion & Crown in Allen last night, happy to
drink, happy to play and just plain happy to be there! Packed to the gills, in addition
to eight of our regular teams, several tables of patrons decided to form six additional
newbie teams! The joint was loud and proud with monikers ranging from the socially
acceptable to the fringes of good taste. Dos XX's and Chaotic Unicorns actually registered
their teams while Dog Star didn't. (I guess they weren't Sirius...) Pard provided the
loud and the late comers USA provided the proud while I Pooped My Pants provided the requisite
amount of crudeness for a bar. (After their introduction, they were thereafter known as

Pickles on a Plate provided Quiz Master Lou with a Santa Cap, thus putting me in the role
jolly old Nicolas and inadvertently causing me to warble out a stanza of Blue Christmas
with the Smart Asses providing spontaneous back up. The Picture Round provided the most
mirth with some interesting wrong guesses... J.R. was mistaken for Maverick. The Doctor
Who Weeping Angel racked up the most wrong guesses, getting such interesting reckonings as
True Blood, Law & Order, Dare Devil and Reno 911. The team that couldn't remember the
title Breaking Bad got style points for offering Methland; And, for some strange reason,
Stranger Things got four presumptions of Sesame Street and one notion of Wheel of Fortune!

Speaking of stranger things, another first for QM Lou. Two tie breakers. The top two
scores of 51 points between Stealth Texas and the Ninja Turtles and the next two highest
scores of 48 points between IFFY! and Pickles on a Plate. Christmas drama! And to top
off a sublime evening, Quiz Master Lou threw a sublime dart game after the quiz with an
astonishing Cricket win of three darts in the Bullseye. (Two doubles and a single!)

I would just like to say thank you and a Merry Christmas to all the players of King
Trivia Pub Quiz, to all the patrons (Rob, Sandra, Derek, Kito, Niko) of King Trivia Pub
Quiz, to all the Quiz Masters (and Mistresses) of King Trivia Pub Quiz, and to all the
admin staff at King Trivia Pub Quiz... David and Sara and Josh and all the rest,
I wish you and yours the happiest of holiday seasons!
