KTPQ action at the Lion & Crown in Allen last night was... Well, actionable.
The Ninja Turtles calmly collected a first place position in round one by a
judicious Double-or-Nothing and proceeded to hang onto it all the way to the
end, where, unnecessarily doubling in the last round seven for an incredible
high score of 74! Twelve points above the second place position! Talk about
symmetry... Resident champs. With authority.

Beer Logic has been coming into its own as of late, capturing the second position
with solid 62 points. And Street Smarts advanced into third with 48 points.
Nice going all around. On the low end, local contenders Binge Thinking binged
their way into last place with reckless abandon by doubling in five out of seven
rounds. This put them even below an unregistered, newbie team calling themselves
S&M, who bailed out of the pub after round four. I guess they could dish it out,
but they couldn't take it, huh? Funnily enough, QM Lou had a couple of teams in
last year, all women incidentally; One took the same moniker of S&M while the other
fancied themselves the T&A's. Was sort of hoping they'd come back on the same night...

In the cosmic coinky dink department, we had an I.M. Pei question in the General
Knowledge round last night. Came home to discover the old fellow had passed away
at the ripe old age of 102. In other quiz news, QM Lou warns don't eat VooDoo
doughnuts or you'll go to hell. VooDoo? You do! Do what? Eat doughnuts!

That's all the news that fits! Until next week, I remain, loyally yours...
