More Like Penny Lame, Amirite?
Yurp!

I feel like the guy who named the “windshield” was pretty severely under representing what windshields do by calling them that.   “Windshield.” It sounds like some kind of decorative screen keeping the gentle coastal breeze from disturbing the fruity rum drinks of entitled white people at a beachside restaurant patio. It does not sound like an amazing piece of technological wizardry that allows you to pilot a car at high speeds on a highway without dying.   Ever been stuck behind a gravel truck on the highway? Or had some errant rock get spit backwards from the tire of a car in front of you and crack your windshield instead

That Time I Wore Themed Perfume Just for You!
AB Baby

Dear Iron Bear,Y'all stole my heart this week. Between the trash talking amongst teams every time I read the standings and the hilarious discussions of Daisy Chains, y'all had me in stitches all night!Top that off with a delicious cold beer and the only way I could have been happier is if I was any of y'alls type. ;) You teases.Our quiz this week was so much fun, but my favorite round was by far and away the video round. I love seeing familiar faces as itty bitty babies!For the Christian Bale movie, I would have preferred Newsies, but maybe that would have been too easy.I've also seen City Slickers an outrageous number of times but I forgot how gawky little Jake

Can You Use It in a Sentence or That Evening I Spent Listening to Drunks Cheering for Children Like They Were Football Stars
Jim

Beautiful beautiful evening up on the Pearl Street Mall. Nine teams came out to compete for the glory that is a $20 gift certificate to Old Chicago (or $10 for second). Peas of Ass (one of my regular groups who always maintain their Peas themed name) took a tragic fall from placement while Los Gauchos (showing up for their third week) finally placed at second. Big Black Hawks (yes Hawks, not c-...nevermind) took first place this week!   Here's what we learned this week:   Carmen Sandiego is important. Showed up twice in this week's quiz!   Pangram's are

Welcome To My Birthday Party!
hurls

Wow, you guys. What a birthday! I got a present from Sean and his female companion, and everyone was really sweet in wishing me Happy Birthday, we had a couple of team names dedicated to my birthday, and once quiz ended, you all burst into song, in singing me Happy Birthday To You. Was that planned? It was amazing!   I was asked a lot why I wasn't celebrating my birthday, and the answer is simple. A Thursday night birthday dinner wouldn't be nearly as well-attended as the in.gredients quiz! So I was happy to celebrate with all of you listening to my every word. A fantasy night!   We had lots of fun rounds, and lots

It's All Ben Done
The Dave

So we had a trainee, Ben, on Wednesday at Charlie Hooper's. We've had our fair share of noobs join us at Hooper's with varying levels of success, but I think I can safely say this was the best trainee we've seen here since some lovable scamp named Dave trained here in June of 2013.   Does that mean Ben is like 3 weeks away from becoming the new, full-time QM at Hooper's?   FUCK NO   This is my venue, damnit! Don't you forget it! Find your own venue to kick ass at!   In other news, I've never posted a blog this late before for a quiz. But to say it's been a rough week is an understatement.

When I'm not solving network/email problems in my real life, I'm likely spending time absorbing random facts from movies, TV shows, video games, songs, and sports.  Love all things KC, be it Royals, Chiefs, Sporting KC, Boulevard Beer, BBQ, whatever.

Mostly I love trivia, especially random trivia, which is what led me here.  As fun as it is to be a player, I find it even more fun to run the Quiz.  I'm like a younger, American, half-wit version of Alex Trebek that drinks and curses on the job.  And that's a really fun job!

Like Moths to a Flame
Josh

Welp, after being a quizmaster for almost exactly a year and half, I feel as though I’ve hit a major milestone that most QM’s meet way faster than I… I had my first bar creeper this past Thursday at Jagged Mountain!  What’s a bar creeper you might ask?  I’m happy to explain!  We’ve all seen ‘em, in fact, I’m willing to bet at some point, you might have even been one.  It’s THAT guy, who gets irritatingly drunk, makes awkward conversations with those around him, hits on (and fails miserably, I might at add) the wait staff, picks up YOUR beer and tries to drink to it… Yeah that guy.    So

Friends of a Feather Quiz Together
WadeLaFever

Well, it was time for this Quizmaster to spread his wings and fly, and in the angelic voice of R Kelly, "I believe I can soar."  The view wasn't terrible.  We laughed. We cried.  We drank and then laughed some more.  Hot Ducks, however, got the last laugh and finished in first place.  Here for Beer and Pea Suit didn't find it funny as they finished second and third respectively.  Round 3 was a little cra-cra, but when you skip a question, that's to be expected.  We all got through it and are better people because of it. I am amazed, week after week by the consistency of attendance,

Summer Camps are Scary
KatePayne

Who knew summer camps could be so mean? Team Elegant Felicia made bank this quiz when they were able to correctly surmise that Civil War camp is in fact a real thing (among many other startling camps). This quiz found old stalwarts I May Be Late But I Always Come, doing more than just coming, they came and they conquered. Happy Endings did not find such a happy ending in their midst, as they came in third... but hey they got to play and isn't that better than team My Goldfish Died who came in last and lost a pet. Either way, no doubt the tides may turn at any moment for these teams, for like the Civil War, the war
