Shamrock and roll

March 16, 2011 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

Last night’s quiz in Gilligan’s was news-worthy for two reasons, neither of them brilliant.

I received my first serious complaint about the blog. A gent who hosted a quiz here a few weeks ago objected to the fact that I’d used his work, and (first) name, without his permission.  I offered to take down the post involved and he agreed.  So I have now done that.

Second, my great run of #winning is over.  It was a close run thing but my team, the topically named Shamrock, lost out by a single point to Outback, who scored a magnificent 99/110.  As you all know, I normally hate losing by a point but, after five weeks of being on winning teams, it didn’t feel so bad. 🙂

I think the quiz master also didn’t feel too bad about it – he voiced his relief that there was no need for a tie-breaker!
