    King Trivia Pub Quiz at the Lion & Crown in Allen last night offered its usual
    merriment, competitiveness and fellowship; But, it also gave us something extra.
    Street Smarts won first place! Congratulations to this team's recent addition
    to the L&C not too long ago who have, in their short time here, steadily grown
    in trivia knowledge. To boot, their victory was well won, coming out of no-
    where with a Round Six Double-or-Nothing that pushed them into the top position.
    They managed to cling to it through Round Seven with a two point lead. Well
    done Street Smarts!

    But the drama never ends at the L&C. The Ninja Turtles tied with Stealth Texas
    in a 57 point mash-up. Turtles ended up with the second place win on a tie
    breaker by guessing at the number of calories in a McDonald's Egg White Delight
    McMuffin. Both teams overshot but Turtles ended up closer. You never saw a
    sadder face on a third place winner. Cheer up, Matt!

    Another great question set from our Quiz writers as well. Rounds one and two
    were deceptively easy with a lot of DoN's being won, but the teams hit a col-
    lective wall in Round three. They all knew Casablanca and My Little Pony, but
    didn't have a clue about Afghanistan or the Friendship Paradox. Hmmm... Not
    enough geography-psychologists out there I guess. As for Round Seven... All
    Quiz Master Lou can say is, "There are lies, damned lies, and statistics!"
    (With apologies to Benjamin Disraeli, or Mark Twain, or whomever...)

    Have a great weekend everybody! Toodles!
