It went a little something like this... Generally speaking, equilibrium was
fairly maintained in Round One. Round Two, you had to know your baseball hall-
of-famers. Round Three, the state got involved. Round Four went either way.
Round Five had everything but beans. Round Six had a ringer (clang, clang,
clang went the dolly! Ding, ding, ding... You get the picture.) while Round
Seven was almost Travolting.

You had to be there. Where? Lion & Crown in Allen, of course! Excellent
players. Excellent questions. Excellent food & drink (Quiz Master Lou partook
of the fish sans chips last night... Delicious!) and excellent gamesmanship!
Stealth Texas, partnered in an unholy alliance with the Hooligans (Stealthigans?),
grabbed the lead early and just kept building on it all the way to the finish.
Blood, Bath & Beyond, with some help from Ship It! and some out-of-town relations,
sewed up second place neatly. Drama came in the last round when the Ninja
Turtles beat out Beer Logic in a tie breaker for third. Quiz Master Lou
believes baby Ninja Turtle was the deciding factor (just as a baby stacked the
odds in Masaki Kobayashi's Samurai Rebellion [1967]. Don't believe me? Look
it up!

Things got weird in the Find-the-Connection round. Most likely due to Quiz
Master Lou's weirdness, as he attempted an improvised mash-up of Marathon Man
and The Graduate.
Mrs. Robinson: Is it safe?
Ben Braddock: Is what safe?
MR: Is it safe?
BB: What?
MR: (Gouges him with a dentist probe) Is it safe?
BB: Owww! Yes! It's safe! It's very safe!
MR: Is it safe? Is it really safe, Ben?
BB: Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to torture me?
MR: I'm very flattered. Do you want to be tortured, Ben?

Excellent players. Excellent questions. Excellent weirdness. Until next week!
