    Thursday night at the Lion & Crown in Allen turned out to be pretty raucous with the
    addition of some newbie teams. A rowdy bunch calling themselves We Thought We'd Do
    Karaoke occupied the table front and center keeping Quiz Master Lou on his toes the
    entire evening. They did pretty good, too, considering they came in fourth out of the
    eight teams that played. If they didn't get into the winner's circle they certainly
    won top prize for loudest laughter. Remember Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow's wild
    laugh as he cut through Romney Marsh? Times ten... X 10.

    Team Rockafeller won the day by pulling into the lead in Round Three with a well placed
    Double-or-Nothing and keeping it cultivated throughout. Street Smarts chased them all
    night threatening to overtake and earned a hot second while Pickles on a Plate slid into

    We had another great question set that bamboozled yet satisfied. The inspired Picture
    Round asking to identify famous folks whose names were also a beverage created quite a
    rush of imagination as teams struggled to pinpoint the historical portrait of famed
    Scotsman Rob Roy. The roster of drinks named after 17th century personalities grew in
    size just to get a valid guess in. (Quiz Master Lou never knew there was a Louis XII
    brand of cognac. Turns out there isn't. It's Louis XIII!) The most mirth came in the
    last round calling for teams to name 10 of Shakespeare's 12 tragedies. The dearth of
    drama majors among the various brain trusts became evident when the guess list included:

    Dante's Inferno
    Count of Monte Cristo
    Lion King
    Rocky VI and...

    Westside Story (although that is actually R&J dressed in fifties togs!)

    Have a great weekend everybody!
