Riverdale: Could Pop Tate Be the Gargoyle King?

Image
OK, to tell you the truth, I'm still a little undecided about this whole Griffins and Gargoyles thing going on in this season of Riverdale. However, I am admittedly somewhat intrigued about who the Gargoyle King is. And, I have my own theory. I think it's Pop Tate (Alvin Sanders).


This theory is based on a couple of things:

First, we know G &G has been going on in Riverdale since at least the 1990s, when Riverdale's parents were the ones still in high school.

Second, if Jughead's (Cole Sprouse) theory about the Gargoyle King controlling everything that happens in Riverdale is correct, then that person needs to have some long-term connection to the city.

Assuming, of course, the current Gargoyle King isn't a copycat or some character that hasn't been introduced yet, the fact the game has been around since at least the 90s means the king must be older than the first set of high school students to play it. After all, someone had to create the game, distribute …

The Fundraiser Seems to Have Been Successful

I'm still waiting on final numbers but did hear the live and silent auctions at Saturday's fundraising banquet raised more than $10,000 for our local ice rink.

That doesn't include ticket sales, games, the raffle table or money we made whenever someone ordered a featured drink from the bar. Plus we had something like $1500 in cash donations prior to the event (though some of that was spent on things we needed). So, considering this was the first (and only) time I ran this event, I think it did relatively well.

Now to start working on my next project for the rink...
