Bags, Sharks, and 50 Cent
Dave

We had a record last night! 10 teams came out to Gypsy Parlor to show off their geek knowledge! 7 of the teams were brand spankin’ new. Let’s see how they fared against the pros. Round 1 started the night out with a round on bags. Teams did really well on this round! Round 2 featured a music round on sharks. Teams did well on this round too! Round 3 was a 50/50 round on 50. Congrats to Beef Ruckus for scoring a perfect round! At the end of 3 rounds Hateful 5 took the lead followed by The Brad Pitt Stains in second and Peanuts Envy in third! Round 4 is when things started getting tough with a round

Happy Birthday Fiddy!

Hey Geeks! How’s it hanging? If you weren’t at Northern Lights Lounge last night, you missed the debut of our brand new Trainee Travis! He’ll be rocking the mic at his own venue and putting me to shame soon enough. Here are some of our highlights from the big game... For a bonus round, I asked one member of each group how many times Fiddy Cent was shot, and learned that our bar patrons have very little understanding when it comes to the limits of the human body. We are not superheroes, we CANNOT be shot 43 times and still promote Vitamin Water.  For Round 4- Ich Bin Ein What

Yeesh, what an epic battle tonight’s John Harvard’s GWD quiz was! Our nine teams put on quite a show for this dilligent quizmaster, with an ending for the ages.   We “bag”un (groan) with a Round 1 where every answer contained the word “bag”. Following some so-so-to-ok performances in that round, the scoring quality was roughly the same in Round 2, an audio round of tunes with a shark theme for Shark Week. Yifu came from out of nowhere and aced the thing for 14 points, but like true rookies they didn’t joker it, and would depart the quiz a couple rounds later. How ominous for you to drop the mic on us in R2 and

Well we had another great night at the Forum with a packed house of 10 teams.  Thanks to all the staff and especially Jessica who helped me get the new audio up and running.  I love the new sound system and the spot up at the front of the bar to host quiz.  It makes the bonus rounds much easier because there's a lot more room at the front.     Team 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (do do doo do loodle do doo) scoring a 14 on the audio round and jumped out to an early lead.  We had one of the toughest visual round I've seen at quiz with the average score coming in at 3.7.  Round 8 also proved tough but provided

Beating the crap out of printers since 1999.
Cupcake

  So I have a dumb summer cold. Being sick during the summer is really lame and I think worse than being sick in the winter or fall. At least during the colder months it is normal to want to bundle up, watch movies, take naps and stay indoors. During the summer it’s already hot and the last thing I want to do is bundle up. Naps are still pretty great, but with the weather not currently being one million degrees, I actually WANT to be outside enjoying it, not inside feeling like my sinuses are filled with cotton. Bleh! Quiz was fun as per usual, but at times I felt like it was hard to talk and breath at the same time. Also the humidity is making me feel all clammy, which

   Actual text message conversation that happened between me and a Quizzer a couple hours before Quiz: "Hi, do you like drunk and sad (redacted)? Because I will see you at tonight's Quiz."

Angus Couldn't Fix a Steak!
Master Moose

It's great when all of the teams correctly answer a question, but for some reason I find extra delight in all of the teams answering a question incorrectly with the same wrong answer! This happened in the first round tonight when all of the teams guessed that the American version of UK's "dustman" must be a "bagman", even though I don't think I've ever heard anyone use the term (apparently a bagman is someone who transports bribe money to officials). It was just great seeing everyone on the same page!   At the end of the third round I asked a bonus question about how many times rapper 50 Cent had been shot in 2000.

Ich bin ein Kuddelmuddel
Extra Terresticle

Two weeks ago we had the 52nd anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s famous Ich bin ein Berliner speech. It was one of JFK’s most famous speeches where he emphatically assured the Germans of West Berlin that the Soviet Union would not be allowed to occupy the city. While the speech was historically significant, it gained notoriety for JFK’s attempt at declaring himself with the people of Berlin. In German, when describing someone (a male specifically) who is from a certain place, you usually add –er to the end of the word for that country (or city). So a resident of America would be an Amerikaner, and someone from Berlin would call themselves

There And Back Again...
The Crying Tygrr

So, I was gone again. You were, too. You can't blame this on Obama. He's a White Sox fan (I think I threw up a little in my mouth) and the reason you didn't see me last week was because of the Yankees. Ah, the big bad New York Yankees came to town and raised the average ticket prices at Minute Maid Park by about 20%. Then again, they probably also raised attendance at Minute Maid Park by 20%, too. I'm pretty sure big teams like the Yankees and Red Sox get a cut of our ticket sales just because they grace us with their presence.That sounded a little bitter. I promise: it wasn't meant to sound bitter.I mean, because I was there. Well, I

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), 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. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks).

I subbed for Mitch last night, but don't you worry -- next week, it'll be back to your regularly scheduled programming.   There were two questions related to Seinfeld.  TWO!  I'm a huge Seinfeld fan, so it's great to see the longevity of the show about nothing.  The show remains relevant today even though it's 20-something years later. In the last month, I've had someone steal my parking spot by pulling into a parallel parking space front-first while I was clearly backing into it.  A week later, a woman asked me to pass her some toilet paper under the stall because she was out.  Luckily I could spare a square.  And I've always had a giant

Yep, it’s shark week. That means everyone will be talkin’ about chompin’ on stuff and chum. Or just watching YouTube videos about sharks since they are too cheap to afford Discovery channel. Whatever, shark week is awesome, so go check out these bad boys.   Things we learned this week: - 50 Cent got shot way too many times. - Hall & Oats is awesome. - Currywurst sounds tasty. - Macgyver’s first name was Angus.

TheHypnotoad

Summer is in full swing in Austin, and that was evident by all the fun we had at Cain and Abel's last night. Had some out-of-towners join in and get a little of the Geeks experience. Round one featured "bag" as the theme, and I learned a new way to describe my chronic back pain, so we all learned something. Round two pointed out that I clearly don't by in to all the hype about Shark Week, even though some of those jams are the bomb. The 50/50 round was clearly the most popular of the night, with Cain and Abel's Bad Bitche$ logging a perfect score and a joker to honor good ol' Fiddy.

And did you know that the bridges to get to and from the island are a bajillion stories tall and are a natural laxative? And did you know that the fastest way to get to Niagara Falls from Rochester is to traverse said island? Now you know.   Anyway, back to my lightning story.   I was driving straight to quiz

Half in the Bag
John

I said the phrase "half in the bag" the other day (I was describing my then state of inebriation) and was met with blank stares and confused looks.  Does no one use the phrase "half in the bag"? Is it a mid-western expression? Is it only used by people over 30?  I thought it was pretty common, but I guess not.  Anyway, most of our quizzers were half in the bag last night and boy, was it fun. Round one was our "b-a-g" round, where all answers contained the letters b-a-g in that order.  Some pretty creative answers in this round.  Remind me to ask my Grandma how to play "Bagammon". It looked like The Third Worst Thing We've Ever Done

Close, but not Mandela
The Fortress

Nelson Mandela never went by any initials, just Nelson. Also he wasn’t even the president when Apartheid ended. Apartheid official ended on April 27, 1994. Nelson Mandela became president on May 10, 1994. So in conclusion, everyone who said the Apartheid ending president was F.W. Mandela; close but not Mandela. However I will give a shout out to Hot at Balls who admitted Nelson Mandela is the only South African president they know. I had to institute the half a point rule on round 5. It’s very rare that I have to do this, but sometimes things happen. Let me explain the half a point rule and then I’ll tell you why I needed it. The half a point rule
