Now Can I Go Back To Being A "RIDE or Die" Kind of Bitch, TRAILHEAD?
The Radness That Is Brecken

This whole bullshit of STILL not having my car back from the shop is killing me, Trailheaders. First, I'm shitty at riding the bus. I'm getting better out of sheer necessity, but I'm not happy about it. Second, walking and biking are not exactly my forte. I trip over my own feet and walk in to walls, counters, and door frames when I'm sober. Imagine the damage I cause myself with a few drinks in me. Third, much like Andrew Luck (the highest paid NFL player of all time, if you didn't know), I choose to have a flip phone. No screen to break, no data plan to pay for, and I never have to worry about upgrading the thing. However, it

It's hard to be humble when you're so fucking smart... The Radness That Is Brecken has been a quiz mistress since Aug. 2007. Yeah, that's a long fucking time. It is said the only way to stop her is to kill her, and, really, good luck with that. When not belittling you on a mic, Brecken is busy hating people (see her neck tattoo), and really not caring about much... except GWD, Trailhead, her pets, and beer. She lives her life like the Arthur Balfour quote: "Nothing matters very much, and few things matter at all." Pet peeves include people that yawn without covering their mouth, those that say "WHAT?" instead of "Pardon?", and people that accuse Miss B of being a bad pet owner. That shit will get you punched in the mouth. Seriously. Ask anybody. Check out her other misadventures, writing or otherwise, at BreckenBaker.com. You know you want to, so stop being all douchy about it. And please remember: much like the Wu-Tang Clan, Brecken ain't nothing to fuck with. What Chilly Wig-Wam?

You Don't Win Friends with Jokers
David

It was a crowded field last night at Ciceros. 15 teams (a new record for this Quizmaster), gathered to do battle. Despite a little controversy over whether they jokered round 2 or not (maybe don't write times 2 on your answer sheet) You Don't Win Friends with Jokers took the win by just one point over Pub Quiz juggernaut Team Pancakes. Joey Triviani was a close third with 82 points. Best team name award goes to A Team Has No Name despite the fact it is no longer topical, so also props to Obgyn Kenobi.

New Quizzing Night, Same Great Quizmaster Flavor
LV Pirate King Mickey

So there was a change effective this week for Geeks Who Drink at the BEERHAUS, we moved to Wednesday nights due to a concert series on Tuesday nights in The Park. One of the regular teams got the memo, and good for them because GIRLFRIEND GIRLFRIEND finally got the crown. And only because I like to rain on their parade, can they really say they are the new champions if the normal reigning champs (who I call Team Prince) was not there to defend their crown? Who knows, that is for you to decide ::cough NOPE cough:: Due to the new night we did not field as many teams as we have gotten used to on Tuesdays. We started with 6, ended with 3 after round 6. That is all right,

“Name a 7 letter-long band name” “H-O-T C-H-I-C-K-S”
Jennifer

It was a close race last night with only a 10 point difference between 1st and last place. Returning from a hiatus (they all went to a Kanye concert) If we don't win best team name, we're all voting for Trump sadly won’t win best team name as they wanted to - “We do not negotiate with terrorists!” – they did, however, win 1st place. Another fun fact, they f-ed up their score sheet so they had to use a scrap piece of paper and joker on it. Their hand drawn “joker” was a spitting image of the Hamburger Helper buddy. Next in 2nd place was Make Love Not PéPé. PéPé

Here's a little speech I wrote about myself: And I come here as a daughter — raised on the South Side of Chicago by a father who was a blue-collar city worker and a mother who stayed at home with my brother and me. My mother's love has always been a sustaining force for our family, and one of my greatest joys is seeing her integrity, her compassion and her intelligence reflected in my own daughters. And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: like, you work hard for what you want in life;that your word is your bond; that you do what you say you're going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don't know them and even if you don't agree with them. And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values and to pass them onto the next generation, because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them.

Empty Balance

Yet another night of Quiz, yet another night where I was much better off hosting rather than playing. When the Quiz features a lot of stuff Millennials know you can rest assured that I would be of no value on your team because I am much too old for that type of stuff; for instance, in Round 2 alone (“Acrostic Universe”) I have honestly never even heard of Hot Chip and I can’t tell you anything about Chance the Rapper (or the featured Jamila Woods and Byron Cage) - I would have known the Pitbull song only because that song has been faintly audible everywhere on the fucking planet at all times for at least the past two years (give it a rest people,

I found myself reflecting on the recent actions of the one known as The Doctor. Realizing how many lives he had saved, how much good he had done, i decided that there was only one thing that I could do to measure up; I needed to travel back in time to the year 2014 and become a quizmaster to help increase the general useless knowledge of the population. So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

So much to celebrate at Spider House this week: quiz for a cause, my quizzavesary, and my birthday all coming this week. Thanks to all friends and quizzers that came out to enjoy all of the fun. Round one we talked about nicknames, though some of my favorites are hopefully to come at a later date, so many great nicknames out there to work with. Music round we had a round that was building to the number eight answer, also building my playlist. Heard some great arguments during the M or W round about Nickelodeon shows that I probably can't repeat in polite company. Round four was a tribute to Arnold Palmer, and I think I'll take a sip of his beverage as a tribute to the golf

Well folks, another hump day has come and gone, and along with it we celebrated the second Geeks Who Drink quiz EVER at Mother Bunch Brewing!  Turnout was solid yet again, with a lot of repeat quizzers from last week but plenty of new faces as well.  There were 13 teams in the running all night, but Pizza Snake pulled into an early lead and couldn’t be bested, ending up with a whopping 83 points for the win and taking home $25 for their next tab at Mother Bunch.

You Better Not Interrupt This Quiz!
Mikey DoDo

Another week, another butt victory. I might be sounding like a broken record for the last month or so but we are clearly in the middle of a golden age of butts. These butts cannot lie, for they have reached scores that mortal men rarely dream of. 91 points out of 96 is absurd, and cause for accusations of cheating if it weren't for the fact that I know these men and women, and they are of honorable stock.   I had feared that many teams who offer low-quality debate puns for team names but we had an outstanding winner for team name of the week with Sarah Palin Seems Quaint Now.

It was national drink a beer day during yesterday’s quiz, and fortunately enough one of the things we do best at Treff’s is celebrate national holiday’s. I had a blast emceeing last night’s quiz once again for 6 teams, and I must say that it was one of the most competitive that I’ve seen of yet. If you look at the final score, it might not look near as close as it was, but if you were in the chairs or barstools then you would have understood just how intense this quiz was.   We’ll start first by thanking everyone for participating in the quiz. Every time you guys and girls come back for another week, it makes everyone look better! First

I truly hope that you are chasing Kevan and Hardison way up in that big blue yonder, right now.  I really want to try and find a way to memorialize all of our Hotel Hotel furry and feathered friends somehow, like utilize one of the blank walls… or install some sort of name placard on the tables.

Reba the Cat is the cutest thing ever. You know that if you read this blog with any consistency. She always greets me when I come home wanting to be pet or carried around until she wants food which is usually about 10 seconds later.    She's also a little sneaky.   I came from quiz one night and heard her meowing but couldn't see her. My roommate had been in her room and Reba loves going in there every chance she gets since there aren't many chances. She was stealthy so my roommate didn't know she was in there. So Miss Fluffy Butt had been shut in her room but heard my voice when I got home and started meowing very
