Is trivia the tie that binds? Certainly, when one knows an answer but
cannot remember it, it can tie one into knots. But even though we indulge
this kind of stress, we consider ourselves luckier than those who couldn't
play because they were all tied up. Speaking of ties, we had two of them
last night at Kilarney's. One necessitated a tie-breaker for third place.
The other was for sixth place so they trusted in Allah, but tied up their
camel anyway. (Which makes no sense but Quiz Master Lou was desperate for
one last "tie" metaphor to tie it all together.) Uh, anyway...
Resident champs Tequila Mockingbird took home the gold with a 53 point win
while IFFY! conquered silver with 46 points. The aforementioned tie for
bronze was between Wossamata-U and a newbie team: Wait for it... Two Girls
and a Guy Walk into an Irish Pub! That's their team name. For real. They
made an amazing comeback in Round Six with a superlative Double-or-Nothing
that placed them within striking distance of the winner's circle; But, the
old school prevailed, winning the tie-breaker and the rest was a history
professor.
We thank the ever loyal Allcoballics, Poonswagglers, Seal Team 3 and of
course, our wait staff, the Barflies, who became too busy to finish but
are always too cool to lose. (?!?) (And a big welcome to new barman Rick,
who served with aplomb!)
Now, go out and have a great week, or go listen to the Allman Brothers'
tied to the Whipping Post!

Lessons from Kilarney's... Lamb is not mutton, but a chrysalis is a cocoon. Q-Tip may
be something you want to listen to, but not always something you want in your ear. When
reading "Norse gods" and "Greek words" closely together on the page, one might get confused
and end up thinking Norse words and Greek gods, thus completely driving one's path to an
answer that is completely wrong. When describing Peter Pan in clinical terms, he really
isn't a very nice fellow. When it's a fifty-fifty chance, such as The Blue and the Gray
vs North and South, Quiz Master Lou will get it wrong every time! And finally, Legos...
What more need be said?
These and some other anomalies made for an interesting King Trivia Pub Quiz last night, as
resident champs Tequila Mockingbird took home the gold, IFFY! got silver and the Allen
Fairview Chamber Friends got bronze (but didn't get 'bronzed', if you know what I mean).
And lovely mash up of questions too, from our quiz overlords out in the Californey
hinterlands.
A shout out to newbie team (duo actually) UBS, who took on the pros and held their own;
Whereas, Under 50 under performed, under played and under bailed after round two. Oh,
well. No biggie. And thanks to our faves Wossamatta-U, Poonswagglers and Niko and the
Barflies, keeping our glasses filled while keeping their hand in the game to boot!
That's all the news that's fit to print. Have a groovy ride all the way to Friday, peeps!

How the magnificent seven became the magnificent eight is Up the River without a Paddle...
That's the name of the newbie team that joined the ranks of the usual suspects last night at
Kilarney's. A big welcome back to Not Suitable For Work who dominated with numbers (I
counted eighteen people sitting at their table!) if not with scores, though they gave a
good run for their money. Seal Team 3, IFFY! and the Poonswagglers all kept the other
teams on their toes right through to the end, but it was Pickles on a Plate, Wossamatta-U
(who made an astounding bound into second place with a 6th round double-or-nothing!) and
Tequila Mockingbird who placed three, two and one respectively.

So, the magnificent 7 to 8 thing was how seven teams became eight, just to clarify. But
it played well from stage, anyway... Big kudos to our quiz writing staff who came up with
some pretty groovy (and suitably tough) question sets. Some queries were a little bit
country while others were just a little bit rock-n-roll. Enough to keep the smart and the
bold that smidgen of 'off-balance' to doubt the outcome. Like Magneto's helmet for example...
We got Flash Gordon and Loki. (Although Quiz Master Lou thought Maleficent's horns would
be more Loki's style.) And woe to the team that guessed Boba/Jango Fett's head bucket
belonged to Lando Calrissian. I mean, really?!? But the best answer was, in this Quiz
Master's opinion, question six from our theme round. Thoroughly Modern Millie making the
'Thor' connection was inspired! And two of our teams got it! Nice going all!

This week, I'd like to leave you all with one small opine on vandalism. The statue of the
Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park in London (which commemorates the RAF in WWII) was
splattered with paint last weekend. Such protestations are unjust, unreasonable and un-
civilized. It spells out barbarians at the gates. Never have so unenlightened, tried to
diminish the effort of so few, whom are owed so much by so many. With apologies to Mr.
Churchill.

Have a wonderful 'rest of your week'!

Oh, and a big thank you to John, who covered for me last week while I was sick. Nice job, John!
