    Exciting stuff from the Lion & Crown in Allen last night! In most quizzes, usually one
    team (or a few) takes the lead and tries to stay out in front while the others play catch up.
    This was not the case in Thursday night's King Trivia Pub Quiz. Long-time-no-see-'em team
    the Bumble Bees kept pace with the pack for most of the night staying just on the outskirts
    of the winner's circle. Whether by design or a quirk of fate, this position made them a dark
    horse when it came to Round Seven where they pulled the most strategic Double-or-Nothing
    this quiz master has seen in a long time! Bzzzzzzt! "Sting!" Bumble Bees take first place
    out of seemingly nowhere with a 53 point win. Cue Rimsky-Korsakov, please.

    Rookie team Binge Thinking, with a little help from that I-Pooped-My-Pants guy, (sheesh, I
    really wish he'd change that name!) took second place with 51 points while another absentee
    team we haven't seen in a while, Shredder Squad, got third place honors with 49.

    Our Round Three Theme round's third question prompted Quiz Master Lou to do the scene
    from Twelve O'clock High, wherein Gregory Peck, as newly appointed commander of the 918th
    Bomber Group, the tough as nails General Savage, lays down the law to the underperforming
    bomber wing which has become known as a "hard luck" outfit. I paraphrase, but here goes...

    "I don't have any sympathy for this 'What are we fighting for?' jazz. We're in a shooting
    war. We've all got to fight and some of us have got to die. Stop making plans. Forget
    about going home. Consider yourselves already dead. The sooner you can get your mind around that fact, the easier
    it will be to do your job. But if you think you have some kind of special hide that has
    to be saved you won't make it in this outfit. Any man that disagrees with me can put
    his resignation on my desk!"

    Have a great weekend everybody!
