Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Mungo Jerry (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Skoda Fabia (pic round)

SO, it turned out last week that the Women’s World Cup did add to the numbers in the pub but not to the point where we had to cancel the quiz.

That’s kind of ideal.

If you come to the Percy tonight you’ll see the end of USA v Chile, in which the USA will pump goals past the South Americans like there’s no tomorrow and celebrating each and every one of them like the second coming.

Being a bad winner. Sometimes you just have to.

But let’s face it, you’re the same when you just keep getting answers right in the quiz.

We are built to celebrate. It’s natural.

Meanwhile, here is the music round cheat info which relates to the quiz at the Persevere tonight:

It’s Mungo Jerry.

I always though this song contained an air of menace.

They talk about drink driving, they talk about just getting out there and doing whatever you want.

They sing “We’re not bad people – but we do as we please“.

Can you feel the danger?

Anyway, enjoy the World Cup, enjoy the quizzes. I hope you win the quiz and I hope we all live forever.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday 9th June 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Tin Whistle (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The Pixies (music round)

Tonight, the quiz at the Persevere is competing with Scotland v England in the Women’s World Cup (kick-off 5pm).

And I’ll tell you: I have no idea how this is going to work out.

If this was the men’s world cup, the pub would be fairly busy.

If this was the men’s world cup and it was Scotland, the place would be stowed.

If this was the men’s world cup and it was Scotland v England, the Percy would be inaccessible due to bedlam and heavy drinking would have commenced more than two days ago. Some people would be in hospital. Pub security staff would be getting about fifty quid an hour. The chances of the quiz happening would be less than a fly’s chance of surviving being shagged by Gary Lineker.

But it’s the women’s world cup so this far less predictable. The Women’s World Cup ha a history of low interest from the public.

But then it is the first time Scotland have qualified for the women’s tournament, and it’s the first time Scotland have qualified for any World Cup tournament for over 20 years.

And there has been a bit more hype this time. And there’s a chance we could get it right up England who, as the BBC keep telling us, are far better than everyone else.

So you never know.

Anyway – my prediction is that the quiz WILL go ahead. Come and play.

Meanwhile, here’s the music round cheat answer for the Tolbooth Tavern tonight which is The Pixies:

Love the Pixies. They never really made a lot of videos. This is by a fan and it’s what you would call impressionistic. Good though.

Anyway, enjoy the World Cup, enjoy the quizzes. I hope you win the quiz and I hope Scotland get it right up the so-called Lionesses.

England are favourites but sometimes you have to dare to dream, as we say in Eurovision.

Scotland aint so bad.

See you at the quiz tonight.
