No Superb Owls Were Killed During The Making Of This Quiz
Tygrr

Yes, barely the tiniest mention about Superb Owl or the Super Bowl in the entire quiz. Crap! Who is the Woo Guy anyway? Bruno Mars? Just three days after one of the biggest yearly TV events in the country (and maybe the world) and not a peep about Lady Gaga attempting to steal Effie Trinkett’s job. No accolades for Peyton Manning’s victory on what might have been his very last professional football game. No reference to Coldplay’s allegedly ultra-gay halftime extravaganza or Beyoncé’s questionable dance uniform. No questions about Cam Newton finally getting fed up and walking out on a press conference where a player from the opposing team was badmouthing

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once when I was 8), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. There's also another cat named Snow who is more interested in looking out the window; I guess he's looking for white walkers. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks). And it appears I really like parenthesis.

WE ARE AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE
Daniel Pool

18 TEAMS LAST NIGHT! WE HAD THAT BAR SUPER CROWDED AND SHIT GOT REAL.   Our two winning teams were also two of our most reliable regulars, Team Affirmative Action: Original Recipe and Rural Jurors III: Furious Squirrels. I'm loving the friendly rivalry we have developing between those two teams. Keep at it you two!   During Round 3 we discussed the differences between the American & English civil war. That was fun. During Round 6 we had a bunch of questions about geometry. That round proved to be kind of brutal for a lot of teams. I know I would've totally shit the bed on that one.   Anyways,

My god, the air! I think it's destroying my soul. I feel like garbage! I prefer the out of sight, out of mind variety of man's toll on the environment. I've got an air filter blasting into my face, but it's not enough!!! My god, what a quiz though! Totally makes the trek through this muck worth it. Although my reading comprehension skills seem to have taken a hit, y'alls quizzing skills haven't! Quizzed in my Pants Something Original gave those Arctic Circle Jerks a run for their money. But ultimately, their ejaculation came prematurely into their pantaloons and gave ACJ the win. I

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

Did we mention the cats?

Honestly, this is more information about your sex life than I need to know. As some of you may know  (and if you have been to quiz more than once you, that is you), I am a huge fan of Supernatural and attending the convention this weekend.  Actually, I volunteer and really need to be at the hotel in half an hour….  SO THIS RECAP IS SHORT. Earlier yesterday evening I told my mom she should start inviting her teacher friends to quiz.  She scoffed and said they were too busy grading papers on a school night to come out for beers.  I remember when I was subbing I would hear all sorts of teachers going out for drinks after work (work is hard!), and

Welcome to Geeks Who Dance, I'm Your Groove Master
The Bearded One

I know every one's a critic and most people are DJs, but I didn't expect my weird blends of underground and trap hip hop and indie rock last night would actually trigger a dance party for quizzers and even for those scared non-quizzin' fools. I'm guessing they were Broncos fans like the drunk guy who kept yelling during the first couple rounds (much like the quiz, moderation is fun for everyone), and that the rest of you were Panthers fans still reeling from the fact that Ted Ginn catches passes like he's Tommy Wiseau.Free

It's Like Going to School
Ben

Well I guess I’ll start by wishing everyone a happy lent. You know those six weeks in the spring when people give up anything they have ever found fun because it might be good for them? Yup one week down, and I’m glad to see that you guys either didn’t give up quiz or have already fallen off the wagon! Either way, good to see you guys tonight! I think tonight was a pretty educational edition of quiz. At any rate, we started off learning our ABC’s, got a history lesson about not one but two different civil wars, and by the end of the night we even got to do some math! Tonight we learned: diabetus guy has a name, all chaps are in fact assless, and Apple

Those Were The Wonder Years
The Deuce

I feel like every blog is me yelling at the keyboard about how you damn kids are so young with your Intendos and whatnot.  A whole table was like "What is the Wonder Years?",  It totally killed me. The only thing that made up for it was that the hot team leader verbally berated another member of the team for a few minutes for his stupidity.  I think I'm in love!!!  I even joined in hoping she could make him cry, it didn't happen, but it was awful close. Another great crowd and another great night at Capitol Garage.  Team Carlos' Last Stand decided to have 8 people on their team, they did a great job, for nothing.  I did

Hello everyone! Welcome to another post game blog from yours truly.  Starting out this week, we only had 4 teams make it to the finals. I'll attribute it to the cold, but no excuses, yall gotta come out! Damn global warming. Okay so back to the quiz and enough of my bitching, this week we saw the Whorelax take the W. A wild card team, but committed regulars! Thanks for coming out week after week guys! You da best. This week the audio round 7 got everyone! On a random side note, I'm really upset nobody got round ones Wu-Tang answer, but I guess that's just me. Thanks for coming out this week and I'll see you all next Wednesday!   Hand

The Angles of these Angels has Pujols all confused
Danielle

The Angles of these Angels has Pujols all confused   I believe it’s safe to say we did it big last night. With a fabulous turnout of 8 teams, I saw a lot of new faces. Newbies even took home the top prizes, which is always a fun turn of events.  The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers was a one man act who dominated the rest with his knowledgable pub quiz skills. He was quiet and sat in the back which I find to be a very good tactic. No one saw him coming, hell no one saw him most of the night. With the rowdy bunch that takes over this bar, they didn’t know his name or face until he took home the gold. Well played

Let's Go Fly a Quadrilateral Whose Four Sides Can Be Grouped Into Two Pairs of Equal-length Sides that are Adjacent to Each Other.
Brad

Last night's quiz was a real squeaker for our first and second place teams. Two Tsunami, bolstered by a perfect score in round two, watched their lead slowly evaporate over the next six rounds. That wasn't enough for Cheddar Bae Biscuits (didn't stop to talk about my appreciation for this reference), who came so very close to catching Tsunami. Despite having a higher score in half of the rounds, CBB finished one point behind. Great job, as almost alwaysm, Two Tsunami. Let's talk, Potsdammit! They're always close to finishing in the

My Spiritual Gift is Volume
Daniel

Thanks to everyone for being such good sports with the sound system getting all wonky last night. I am going to try to see if I can switch out some of the cables and see if that helps at all. My voice is a little shot today from shouting all night, but at least we were able to carry on the quiz and have an awesome night! As a reminder, quiz is now 7-9 PM!!! Sorry to Soggy Bottom Boys who didn’t get that memo, but well done coming in third place despite only playing the last few rounds. Another Democratic debate tonight. It’ll be interesting to see how Hilz reacts to Bern’s double digit destruction in New Hampshire this week. Mrs. Clinton barely

Colbert is the Col-best
Hoffstradamus

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a live taping of Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and it was just as magical as you’d imagine. I happened to be in NYC for a business conference, and noticed my hotel was two blocks down from the Ed Sullivan Theater where the show is taped. I made a reservation online for a ticket a couple weeks ahead of time, and planned to wait in line for a ticket to get in. And, boy, did I wait in line. I got to the theater around noon, and was the tenth person in line. However, tickets aren’t doled out until 2:00P, and it was raining like a som’bitch that day. I grabbed my poncho and waterproof

They're ALL "Lesser Kardashians"
Matt

Guys... Remember how awesome the 90's were? The only Kardashian anyone knew of was captivating the national audience on TV during the OJ Simpson trial, Full House was still in syndication, and gas was like $1.50 per gallon... Wait a minute... What year is it now, again? Round 3 gave us an opportunity to prove our national patriotism. We got to write "USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" as an answer like... 4 times! America is way better at Civil Warring than the 'Brits. We killed way more of our own people in our own Civil War, we debuted the most advanced weaponry for sufficiently killing our own people in our own Civil War, we had more major battles in our own Civil War...

I’m pretty sure that you think I’m more attractive than Alejandro since you didn’t say anything after I mentioned it (check plus). I’m pretty sure that you hate hearing your scores since you didn’t say anything after I mentioned it (check plus). Actually, now that I think about it, it’s considerably more likely that you’re all zombies. Whew…that cleared things up.   Say what? took the lead at the very end while Singles awareness club fell just short. Sanchez Sucio rounded out the top 3 and suck it won lots of books. It was

From Hops You Came, To Hops You Shall Return
Miss Linz (If You're Nerdy)

Something tells me that y’all either 1) had a HELL of a Mardi Gras on Tuesday (and maybe the entire weekend before?), or 2) are more religious than I gave you credit for and maybe gave up beer for Lent. If the latter is the case, I have one question for you – WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO YOURSELVES? Here’s a solution – just adopt the same attitude as In Dog Beers We’ve Only Had One. That way it’s like you’re not even drinking anything until you get to seven. It’s perfect! God won’t mind, I promise. Totally unrelated: did you guys see the amount of muscle that was sitting at There’s Always Money

Quizzes & Valentine's

Happy Valentine's Day from the Geeks Who Drink at Headshots Bar & Grill! And a special "I Love You" to my wife, whom I have been married to for four years as of this Valentine's Day! You're the best sweetheart!   A special thank you is also in order for the offspring of two of our quizzers, Keira! Keira brought materials with her to the quiz to make Valentines for her class at school. But you know who else got one? This guy! Thanks Keira!   14 teams and I had a lot of fun with this week's quiz. We reviewed our ABCs in Round 1, listened to some songs Ric Flair would be proud of in Round 2 and brushed up on our civil
