So far, so good with our new 2019 year. At least, that was the mood at the pub last night
as fifty-six souls divided into thirteen teams for King Trivia. Even the non players got
into the act when one lady approached the stage during the Guess Who Round and tentatively
leaned close to Quiz Master Lou to whisper her guess into his ear. Wrong guess, but right
Blood, Bath & Beyond (with an assist from Ship It!) astounded by taking top honors with
an incredible 65 point win, building their victory with two consecutive Double-or-Nothings
in rounds one and two. The Lion & Crown saw the return of the Ninja Turtles with clan and
baby; And, they returned to form with a 50 point second position.
Kudos to Scott's Tots, who brought their "A" game and held a mean third place all the way
through Round Five, only to get kicked back into a fourth place tie with Stealth Texas
allowing team I Pooped My Pants (IPMP) to snag the tertiary prize. Welcome back to the
Bastard Barristers, who brought along reinforcements. Also welcome back to the Shredder
Squad, who were happy to be there but chagrined to score so low. Unusual for them.
Best newbie team name goes to Ready Player Fun, who signed on and everything! Hooligans,
IFFY!, Beer Logic, Pickles on a Plate and Team First Date, thanks for all you do! Keep
the spirit going! QM Lou, signing off...
