Quiz Master Lou's Spotlight on the Teams! In an effort to give back to those who make it happen, Quiz Master Lou is going to shine a light on the people who play King Trivia Pub Quiz. An interview of sorts, I passed out a short questionnaire (5 questions) to each team to find out a little bit about them. Here are the results...

This week's spotlight is on: STEALTH TEXAS


Team Captain(If there is one): Matthew Hoyt

All Others (by specialty if applicable): Tito Labra

Et al...

How did your team get its name and what does it mean?
People have been calling me "Stealth" for years because I "fly under the radar".

What is your favorite (or top favorites) Round in the King Trivia Pub Quiz? (General Knowledge, Picture Round, Theme Round, Guess Who?, Find-the-Connection, Hand-Out or Round Seven) and why?
Find-the-Connection, because you can work forward and backward.

What was your most memorable moment during a King Trivia Pub Quiz?
Every night that Kito is here! (Kito is one of the premier bartenders at the Lion & Crown.)

What, if any, are the benefits of playing trivia games in pubs?
Beer and fun friends!

Is life pre-destined or do things just happen randomly? And; What changes would you like to see?
As Doc Brown says, "Life is what you make it!"

Bring back the Round Six Answer Sheet!

Quiz Master Lou's Wrap-up:

As I've stated before in a Recap from the past, Matt made his mark by building a quiz team from those who sat at the bar with him. This method has produced startling results over the past year, with Stealth Texas earning a number of wins and always placing near the top. Matt's easy going nature and friendly manor have drawn to him an irregular crew who act effectively as a kind of "flying platoon", who are able to plug gaps in the trivia battles they love to fight. Matt himself is a brainy guy with a wide range of interests from movies to pop culture. He is married with family and drinks, but never gets drunk. Matt also loves to play darts and I have had the personal pleasure of matching flights with him on many occasions. While Matt's crew is fluid, one of the regular irregulars is Tito, who is quite possibly one of the most fun people ever! He has an encyclopedic knowledge of sports and music. Together, they are a sort of Texas pub version of Holmes and Watson. Or maybe Kirk and Spock. Or more like Spock and Scotty.

An appropriate day to post this as Stealth Texas took first place (yet again!) last night. Binge Thinking got a well deserved second while Street Smarts duked it out with Shredder Squad to win third in an exciting Tie Breaker.

Until next week...
