The 33rd annual Kings X Trivia Tournament was held May 19 at WPLJ in Walnut Creek. We still call it Kings X to honor the legendary home of Trivia and Fantasy Football in Oakland. The winning team was We Are Not Spartacas, who was captained by one of the great veterans Masters, Jim Buchanan. Jim’s team took the measure of the very impressive team Les Miserables Gangnam Style, captained by another great veteran, Mark Ryder. My team, Hunter Pence Underpants finished tied for last, which begs the question: What right do I have to write this stuff? Our moderator was another veteran, Darrell Garrison, who did his usual job of writing sharp, fair and interesting questions. I am sure Darrell will not mind if I share a few of them with you.
