Lion & Crown. Allen, TX. Capacity: Packed! Mood: Boisterous. Quiz: Great!
Lots o' teams and lots o' enthusiasm as both regs and newbies gathered in an atmosphere
that can only be described as chaotic. Just getting to the pub was a challenge as an
automobile smash up on 75 at Legacy caused a traffic snarl that spilled out into the
surrounding roadways, clogging streets like plaque in a high cholesterol's arteries!
Quiz Master Lou narrowly avoided a heart attack as he drove his truck like 500mg of
Lipitor through veins of cars, whipping along the congested paths, blood pumping, aorta
racing, capillaries pounding! (Take that, Edward Bulwer-Lytton!)
All was well, though. Eleven teams competed with newbies Dog Whisperer's (very little
whispering from this group) and Lions and Crowns (when pressed for coming up with a team
name, go local!) joining in the camaraderie. It was quite a horse race too, with lots of
ties and lead displacement right up until the final round. In the end, Rockerfeller
won the day while Stealth Texas snagged second and Deadly Alliance (BB&B) took third.
Mirth and merriment from some intentionally wrong guesses of desperation. General Ben
Davis of the Tuskegee Airmen got pegged as Major Heartache and General Grievous in the
Picture Round. A lot of teams guessed that Mary Phelps Jacob (aka Caresse Crosby)
patented the girdle, pantyhose or garter belts back in 1914 rather than the bra, but
for a gal who owned a Whippet named Clytoris, QM Lou is guessing she had a bureau with
lots of stuff in it! Round Seven's name the top 10 countries with the highest GDP's
garnered style points to the team that put down "Wakanda Forever!!!"
Have a great weekend everyone!
