The competition at Kilarney's last night was extreme. The lead hopped around like a department
store duck on a hot plate. (I know. They used to do that...) Age & Treachery fared best with
the top score in Round 2, then in Round 5 and finally shooting to victory with a Double-or-Nothing
in Round 7. The lead was also held by Tequila Mockingbird in Round 3, Wassamatta-U in Round 4 and
IFFY!/Blood, Bath & Beyond Alliance in Round 6. So, quite a horse race.

Welcome to newbies Mozart, who came in just as the symphony started, began their movement impetuoso,
gained points prestissimo and finally finished forte with a second place tie, losing out to the
IFFY!/BBB alliance!

Brenda O'Malley was in the kitchen washing dishes, waiting for her husband Shamus to come home,
when she heard a knock at the door. There was Shamus' friend, Tim Finnegan, with a long face.
Brenda intuited immediately that something had happened to Shamus. Fearful and sad, Tim told
Brenda that Shamus had died in a freak accident at the Guiness brewery. After the expected
histrionic grief and wailing, Brenda managed to ask how it happened. Tim told her Shamus had
fallen in a vat of Stout and drowned. Through tears, Brenda muttered, "Did... Did he at least
go quickly?" Tim shook his head solemnly and replied, "No. I'm afraid not. He got out three
times to pee..."

Have a great week everybody!

At 7:02 pm, three tables and two guys at the bar were all that occupied Kilarney's in Fairview Center last night. Then, at 7:30pm, the joint miraculously swelled to ten tables and a full bar! Such is the effect of a King Trivia Pub Quiz at your local watering hole, even on a Tuesday with rain!

Lots of regulars filled the hall along with newbie team EZ ZZ's. The couple explained E and Z were their pair of beloved Basset hounds. I just love a good animal story. Another terrific question set from our quiz writers out west as well. Quiz Master Lou thought that the domestic pig question was too easy, but I think maybe Beijing Black and Tamworth might have thrown some doubt into some people's minds. (Actually, those names sound like some exotic pot one might obtain?)

Round Three's theme of frogs and toads was a real stumper for a lot of folks. QM Lou was surprised at how many teams knew about the company LeapFrog, but virtually no one got the Star Fox mechanic name of Slippy Toad. However, style points go to some hilarious guesses... Kermit Jones, Toad Eddie, Space Toad, Toadworth and Joe Toad. Team AFCF (Allen Fairview Chamber Friends) got style points practically every round after incorrectly identifying Anchorman's famous mutt as Walter Cronkite. Nearly everyone of their default guesses that night was Walter Cronkite. As a frog. As one of Hollywood's highest paid actresses. As their Guess Who Round choice (crossed out of course). Just to see if they could get a chuckle out of ole Quiz Master Lou. Uh, you guys do know that style points don't count, right?

As Kilarney's is an Irish pub in Texas, it is only fitting that QM Lou offer this classic jape...

A Texan walks into a pub in Ireland and says, "I hear you Irish are a bunch of hard drinkers. I'll give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back-to-back."

The room is quiet and no one takes up the Texan's offer. One man even leaves. Thirty minutes later the same gentleman who left shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. "Is your bet still good?" asks the Irishman.

The Texan says yes and asks the bartender to line up 10 pints of Guinness. Immediately the Irishman tears into all 10 of the pint glasses drinking them all back-to-back. The other pub patrons cheer as the Texan sits in amazement.

The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and says, "If ya don't mind me askin', where did you go for that half hour?"

The Irishman replies, "Oh...I went to the pub down the street to see if I could do it first".

Have a great week everybody!

The atmosphere at Kilarney's was a little on the sedate side last night. It may have been the
muggy weather; Or, it could have been the aftermath of the long Labor Day weekend or a combination
of both. Whatever the cause, only the faithful showed up and that means Quiz Master Lou was
playing to a seasoned and experienced crowd. This had the effect of streamlining game play to
minimum round time and shorthand guidance. Rules? Got it! Round format? Been there, done
that! It was like the weekly poker game you have at home with your buddies. Cozy. Friendly.
Relaxed. All we had to do was play the game.

The Quiz was pretty tough though. Some very hard questions. But that's a good thing. The only
possible shortcoming may have been that if Cate Blanchett is going to be the subject of a Guess
Who Round, it would be pertinent to at least mention in the two point clue that she played Galadriel
in the Lord of the Rings saga. Just sayin'...

Style points were awarded for those who couldn't remember the name of Abe Sapien from Hellboy. We
got Fish Boy, Blue Boy, Blue Devil and Aquaman. As Round Seven was MLB based and Kilarney's is an
Irish pub, it was only fitting that QM Lou tell an Irish joke about Baseball... Pat and Mike
were best friends who loved baseball. They loved it so much that they reasoned (whiskey reasoning)
that there must be baseball in Heaven. Promises were made and the first one to die would make
it a priority to report back to the survivor. As fate would have it, Pat passed away the very
next day! A few nights later, Mike awoke in the middle of the night by the appearance of Pat's
ghost! After overcoming the shock of seeing his late best friend, Mike asked, "Well, what's the
answer?" Pat's eerie voice spoke. "Well, I've got good news and bad news. We were right!
There's baseball in heaven! They've got a terrific team!" Mike was heartened but confused.
"What's the bad news, then?" To which Pat replied, "There's a game tomorrow night and you're

Have a great week everybody!
