What a great evening at Killarney's! It was good to be back after a harrowing
adventure which prevented Quiz Master Lou from making it to his appointed rounds
last week. You see, there were these guys who kept mistaking me for someone
named George Kaplan. Turns out they were spies! And they thought that I was a
spy, too! And there was this crazy blonde who made a pass at me on a train and
then she turned out to be a spy! Well, one thing led to another and... And...
Actually, the battery in my truck had died. But it was a spy! Named George
Kaplan! And there was an Alfred Hicthcock question in Round One last night.
All in all, it was a fantastic question set. The Picture Round was especially
fun with a lot of Double-or-Nothing's going south because one had to get the correct
Back to the Future! Round Six was also tops with a great subject... Matching
the Old West Legend to it's Historic Figure. Quiz Master Lou, being one of the
old guys, remembers the Time-Life Old West Series commercials from TV and the
catch phrase that identified John Wesley Hardin. (Shoot, mam. Wish't Ida been
playin'.) I'm tipping my Stetson to our quiz writers.
The Poonswagglers, returning after a long absence, came back with style by making
a narrow, one point win for first place, pushing the deadly alliance of Blood,
Bath & Beyond/Ship It! into second with a 67 to 66 score! One Left in the Chamber
proved they could stand with the best of them without their fearless leader, Eric
by capturing the third position. It was also nice to have Niko and the Barflies
playing again and a shout out to the loyal regulars Seal Team 3 and WossaMatta-U.
Them's the words. Spread 'em around! See ya next week!
Dateline: August 27, 2019 - Killarney's at Fairview Center - Fairview, TX.
King Trivia Pub Quiz was in demand last night as twelve teams comingled to
compete comparatively in compact, contained cliques. On the team front, the
cleverly cognomen-ed conglomeration known as Not So Sexually Suggestive returned
for more fun, but didn't fair as well as last time. The questions just didn't
land in their wheelhouse so to speak. No matter. We like them anyway and hope
they will return. Even though they sat in Tequila Mockingbird's usual spot...
The team formerly known as Counter Culture have re-booted themselves (in Latin
no less!) as Ora et Labora et Repulsa, which loosely translated means either
"I hate religion and work" or something very naughty. Don't know. Can't say.
The deadly alliance of Blood, Bath & Beyond/Ship It! took first place while the
afore mentioned Tequila Mocking boids got second. Michael, the sole survivor of
the Dallas Boolers Club (he's the one that didn't go off to university to get
brain washed!) put together a flying platoon of barstool warmers and won third
We got another great question set as well. The toughest round was our #2 Picture
Round - Identify these fictional cows. Sorry guys. Texans don't name cows. We
eats 'em. Number six, one Chief Bogo from Zootopia got the best wrong answers:
Sgt. Ox (said 2 teams!)
Capt. Ox (he got a promotion)
Oh well. It was utterly disastrous. It behooves us to mooove on...
That's all the news that fits! Quiz Master Lou signing off!
Last night's King Trivia Pub Quiz was too easy! Quiz Master Lou did his best to
select tougher, alternate questions where he could, but those Double-or-Nothing's
just kept coming! On the plus side, the pop culture quotient was brought down to
a manageable proportion. The crowd at Killarney's was somewhat sedate. Whether
that had to do with the heat wave we've been having or that drowsy period at
summer's end before school begins is a toss up.
Welcome to newbie's Jersey Girls + Lil Bro and Not So Sexually Suggestive, who
finished fifth and seventh respectively. Not bad for first timers! Fare well
to the Dallas Boolers Club for a while as those boys head off to college. It is
hoped that there, they will learn to become men. Or women. Or transgender.
What ever they become, it is hoped they won't whine about losing a Double-or-
Nothing because they put down Mickey Mouse Characters instead of Disney characters
for the Round Five 'connection'. Oh the pain.
Tequila Mockingbird killed it with a 71 point first place win while the old school,
Wossa Matta-U, took a handy second. Ship It!/Blood, Bath & Beyond took third
place honors as they have been consistently doing for some time now. They seem
to be very comfortable in the winner's circle, even though they only sit in the
captain's chair occasionally.
Hats off to John from Beer Logic, who uncharacteristically showed up at this
venue and played solo. He provided the evening's best style points variation
on a theme answers by providing the following Matt Damon film titles. Enjoy!
Bourne: The Animated Series
Son of Bourne
Bourne Goes to College
Bourne Bjorn Borg
Bingo Bango Bongo Bourne
Bourne in the USA
That was some inspiration, John. I guess you got Bourne again on that round, eh?
