I'm from Houston. I know, I know, you are already giggling and hurling jokes. Dallas/Houston rivalry aside, I'm an Astros, Texans (was an Oilers) fan. Which means I know what it means to be almost champions. In the past I've written in this space about dominant teams, the Dallas Cowboys of trivia here at World of Beer - Fort Worth, the 5-Hole. Now, don't get me wrong. I love each and every one of them. We would not have trivia here if it were not for their loyalty. But like every dynasty, you sometimes want to see them stumble, just a bit. Just a tiny, itty, bitty, bit and give those teams that you know want it bad the taste of victory. Because you know, once they taste the sweet nectar of a win, they will want more and more and will keep coming back until they get it. And that is what builds a rivalry and that is what makes this fun. Well, that and beer.
Congratulations to one of our regulars that did just that this week, Trumps Toupee, well done. Also congratulations to Love FrogKisser, you're right there. You are my Astros (sorry, had to say it).
Who will be the next dynasty? Tell me your team will be and I may must help you along by giving you a point.
Until next week.
