Another Monday Funday for the folks who joined me last night at Stick+Stone! Twelve eager beaver teams blessed me with their presence, and in turn, they were #blessed with the presence of my SUPER FLY NEW KICKS. If you weren't there and want to see them, TOO DAMN BAD. Only the cool kids that actually give a hot damn and show up to my quiz get those perks. You know what else was perky? Team Biggest Richard in the Room! They faced STIFF competition in this undoubtedly HARD quiz. WOOD they CUM out on top?! Well, with an early Joker in the 2nd for 28 points, they sure were close. Speaking

Life of Brian aka Go To The Library
The Fortress

I’ve been told to watch to this movie. I’ve never seen it and I don’t know where to get it. So I was asking some questions on where I could find this. I did some thinking and I realized I could probably find this at the LIBRARY!   I’ve recently made a pact with myself to go to the library instead of running to Amazon every time I want to read a book. Because lots of books I don’t want to own, I just want to read once.   In a time when we are feeling that we are feeling that we are taxed for services we don’t need and sometimes don’t want, here is a great resource we’ve already PAID FOR! The library is

Yeah, well what can I say about myself...A LOT! 

But I won't. I'm just your regular quiz-mistressing chick on in the city. Sounds like a million dollar sitcom idea to me. 

Actually QM's are more of 250K reality show idea on MTV. My show would be akin to Jersey Shore, but no fist pumping or pregnant short people. 

...but back to me. I'm called The Fortress...no idea why though, so come out and see me in action and maybe we can come up with some ideas why together!

Smitty Werbenjagermanjenson... He Wasn't Number 1.
Selina

I dedicate this post title to Smitty Werbenjagermanjenson, who has historically done very well here and landed solidly in third tonight, despite his team name. Major props to Indy 500, who's fallen before and trounced the competition tonight! Sometimes it feels like the world specifically chooses to rain on Tuesdays to make the view out the window super gloomy. Pssh. Who cares, we've got quiz night in here and we're warm and dry. Hah!

There's a special kind of magic that happens when you stay up until 6am doing homework, and then go to work, and then go to quiz, and then close out a bar. That magic is sleepy contentment.   Holy shit, you guys. I got everything that I needed to get done, done. And it was so magical. Almost as magical as that damn unicorn frappuccino. I mean, I haven't tried it, but I've heard that people are into it, and for the love of god...   LET PEOPLE ENJOY THINGS.   I've been screaming this over the internet for a million years, and this week more than ever, but it is so, so, so,

Is is just me or are fantasy novels getting shittier and shittier?  I came across this description of a dystopian future and found it to be a little lacking in substance and believability.  I mean i know it's fantasy but come on...a president named Donny and a bunch of sell outs in a white house?  Let’s get real.  Anyway, you can let me know what your thoughts are.  I think it's by some up and coming writer named K.A.

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

Unicorn Frappuccino = glitter in your toilet
Katherine

  Im not sure if I was more impressed by the minds that turned The Expendables into a musical or the geeks ("Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually I didn't even notice." ) that knew that the Round 7 audio clip was supposed to be Sylvester Stallone singing a musical number from the above mentioned. Both were amazing. As was that run-on sentence. But seriously, how does one turn “The Expendables” into a musical?? Mind-blowing.   In other news, Starbucks Unicorn Frappucino’s make you poop glitter. It’s a fact.   Back to the quiz. "Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel

The Oilers eliminated the Sharks on EARTH DAY! Haha...
Sean-Oh

Well folks, it looks like a lot of people survived the craziness that was Davis' Picnic Day. Personally, I spent the day at home, comfortably avoiding the drunken mess of the local holiday and watching Stanley cup Hockey games. Sadly, the Boston Bruins were eliminated, but happily, so were the San Jose Sharks. Sooo, I guess it evens out. Besides, I still have the Anaheim (Mighty) Ducks to root for. Anyways, Onto some Quizzness. A solid showing this week. We had 6 teams fighting for the top spots, and we saw some great showings. However, a sad thing happened. After 3 straight weeks of consistently hitting 4th place, team "The Winners" unfortunately slipped, and missed their

Rose and Thistle always has the best team names, and tonight was no exception. Cunning Stunts had a lead most of the night, but Answer Pants finished strong with a near perfect final round where they used their joker. The Rural Jurors and Scooter Didn't Show rounded out the top 4.   Extra excitement, as we had a tie for second, decided in a thrilling tie-breaker! I love a tie-breaker. Just when everyone thinks they've quizzed all they could possibly quiz, we have more quiz!   So much of our quiz contained Arnold Schwarzenegger, with three out of eight movies in our

Jeremiah Was a BullFrog But He Wasn't the Title of That Song
Stephanie P

I work from home during the day, and today during a call with a coworker I half-witnessed a pretty solid car crash outside my window. Accidents happen pretty regularly here, as I live at the corner of a busy one-way street and a regular street, and it isn't always easy to see the oncoming one-way traffic. Or at least that's probably what happened to the Uber driver who smashed into another car this morning. The screeching tires and smashing metal were loud enough for my coworker to hear over the phone, and as I startle easily I may have shouted "Holy Canoli!" in her ear when the collision happened. Thankfully it looked like both drivers were unharmed, and the fire truck left almost as soon

I suck
Dustin

Well it happens to me like once a year. Although I try to do it more than that, I usually catch myself and actually remember to take team pictures. But last night...alas...it totally slipped my mind. Sorry everyone. I don't have those fun pictures of your smiling faces as you toast your beers at me or make the cheesetastic faces, or photobomb your neighbors. I didn't even realize i hadn't done that until I sat down to do this blog this afternoon. My bad everybody. So I'll try to make up for it with pictures of some of my favorite things from around our new house. So take a look off to your left and see things like:My favorite napping pillow-Our dog in her recliner that

You're Welcome.
Brydon

Howdy! Thanks to everyone: regulars, newcomers, and occasionalcomers for coming out tonight and enjoying a lovely evening. To be fair, it was classic Colorado "shitty spring" out there, but we need the moisture, so I think it was awesome. In fact, my only issue with the intermittent showers tonight is that I haven't gotten my rain barrels set up yet. My wife and I went to a workshop in Boulder (yeah I know, I know, I know) last weekend and we got hooked up with two former Coca-Cola syrup 30ish gallon barrels that have been "upcycled" (yup, that's a thing) into rain barrels. I got to validate the aspects of my socially-perceived masculinity

The Mystery of the Forgotten Joker
JenKiper

In order to win quiz, you’ve got to know stuff and , more specifically, the stuff we ask at quiz on the night you decided to leave your house. In addition to that, you’ve got to know when to use that joker. Double points are a big deal and wasting it on an 8 point round always makes me a little sad for those newbies and those who’ve not quite figured it all out yet. I mean, I tell them, every Monday, use it where it will get you the most points, but I guess sometimes that is an 8 point round and you’re probably not gonna get the most points anyway. But the bigger faux pas is when you tell you and your teammates agree to joker a high scoring round, maybe even

I Promise I've Seen This Before
Chris

Think back to a simpler time, before orange was the new black and black was a second term president doin' whatever he damn well pleases. More specifically 2014. One week after the biggest event of that year (43-8 right a bell?) I hosted the first quiz at Three Lions. My point is that in the over three years I've been hosting this quiz, I've seen a lot of things as well as noticed a few scoring patterns. Really you shouldn't be so surprised when I can predict where a team will end up and how close a race to place really is. It's because I've seen it before. It also helps that my day job is looking at numbers trying to identify any patterns and find any errors. The moral of the story is that

Georgia Represent

This week we had several members of the Athens Young Professionals Network classing up the joint at Trappeze/Highwire. Welcome, Young Professionals!   As the first round unfolded, and I realized we're the only venue in Georgia on Monday nights, so we had to hold it up for the whole state on Question 6. Luckily most of our teams knew at least one, if not both of the answers. (See, candidates - TV spending works!) However, only regular team Hot Girls Club Sandwich was the only team to ace the first round.   Round 2 was a good round for most

"Why is this night different from all other nights?"
Amanda Wilbourn

It was on this night that we learned that no one in 10 Sports Bar, apart from yours truly, has ever attended a Seder. Or, if they have, they weren't paying attention! Ignorance of Jewish feasts aside, it was another knowledge filled night of quizzing and drinking in Odessa. Team Han Solo joined us for the first time this week, but missing out on round 1 left them with little hope of edging out our quiz regulars Cosby/O'Reilly Power Hour and Ruff Pack. As usual, these two teams stayed head to head all night, leaving it up to round 8 for a clear winner to emerge. Ruff Pack, with

Our very first video round night! And more to come in the following weeks.   3 teams tonight back at it to see who is the quiz king/queen. Scott's Tots took another win tonight, but the Big Butt Babies closed the gap just a little bit more this time. Who knows, they may even win it next week at this pace?   We learned about spray paint, fictional character's impending doom, revisited some old newspaper comics, and interviewed with interviewing movies and tv shows doing interviews!   Team name of the night - The Violated Beaver.
