Meet Me in the State of Lousiville
Sweet Adam

Wow does time go by fast or what? I was just thinking about how far away Geek Bowl is and it’s right around the corner. Austin and Albuquerque have been the haunts for these past couple of GBs but we’re back in our home state, ready to rock this joint. At DU’s arena nonetheless – what a treat. If you haven’t signed up, there is still time! Grab a team and take a stab at the $10,000 prize. Or just hang back, enjoy a few pints and enjoy the gong show we like to call Geek Bowl. And live Round 2s are quite the highlight. One of my favorite parts is in Austin a few Geek Bowls ago where we took advantage of the “live music capital of the world” (which

Across the assorted continuities of the universe, there have been various interpretations of Adam. One of Adam's most notable characteristics in any form was his adamant commitment to leadership by example, and avoidance of any hypocrisy in his command. Adam is a wise and essentially upbeat battlefield general.

Other minor details about Adam's personality and personal life — for example, his dislike of rap music ("Blaster Blues" and "Quest for Survival"), which set him at odds with some music-loving characters. Adam also enjoys televised sports, most notably softball which he even plays ("The Master Builder"), as well as setting up a basketball court outside the quiz. Though Adam's personality is like that of a human man age 40-50, he is not above watching afternoon soap operas.

I like gin and tonics.

They Finally Had A Roller Derby Question!!!!!!!!!!!
Stephanie

Good evening, happy Thursday, and welcome to another edition of Geeks Who Drink! It was a beautiful night for some quizzery, even though I was missing one of my regular teams. Hope they had a blast in Austin! We had a 50th birthday in the house, and a lot of new faces intermingled with my regulars so I was totally excited! So let's do it! My quizzers had no problem with Round 1, like duh, and the first audio round equaled a lot of jokers so apparently no one had any issues with the different rules. Good job! I gotta add that I was super pumped with my first ever ROLLER DERBY question on my quiz!! As a retired derby girl, that had me so stoked!!! Eeeek!! Ok, ok,

KevinSpaulding

We had ourselves a pre valentine's day Geeks who drink night at Adventure Brewing. Adventure was so nice that they whipped up 3 beers especially for Valentine's Day. The first, 50 shades of chocolate stout. The description certainly goes hand in hand with the name of the beer:  "Suddenly he grabs me, tipping me across the bar. With one smooth movement, he angles his body so my glass is resting on the coaster beside him. He plants his left forearm on the edge of the bar, holding me down so I cannot move … He places his hand on my cold glass, softly fondling me, stroking around and around the rim with his flat palm. And then his hand is no longer there …

The evening after…   Ash Wednesday is a day for reflection after a long period of over-indulgence. Ash Wednesday quiz is an excuse to go back to the bar for one more round to begin the slow descent into lent. It’s this very specific NOLA experience that we have every year here at Twelve Mile Limit, and I’m happy to report that at least 11 of our teams survived the carnival season to make it back for this week.   I’d like to pour one out this week in honor of the hard working bar staff that placed fifth this week.

Quiz Memory Lane
SuperMallory

I am in the lucky position of getting to deliver a round at our upcoming Geek Bowl event at Magnus Arena in Denver. HOLY CANNOLI. I have been asked for some fun facts about me, and one of them needs to be about being a quiz master. So, here we go, I think I will use this blog time to reminisce about some of my favorite times at quiz: On my very first day hosting quiz a girl at the bar thought my notes were a menu, grabbed them, at the same time knocking over a pitcher of beer I was drinking all over me and soaking me thoroughly I did my first night of hosting soaked in beer and still crushed. Once an entire group of soldiers came in for a quiz night… On a bachelor

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".

Gravitational Waves, How Do they TWERK?

Week 6   Greeting Quizzarinos,I'm about to have oral surgery done later today so let's make this a dedication to oral hygiene. I recently found  confirmation that having your wisdom teeth pulled is costly, could possible do more damage in the long term, and a scam. Now I know what you're thinking, I'm a Quizmaster not a Doctor.However, I'm also a Quizmaster who said No to painful and costly surgeries by greedy doctors's more than thrice times in my life.

Hello Iron Bear! I don’t know about you, but I had a really great time tonight. The quiz was a slugfest, with a rare third sixteen-point round! Also, we tried something new with the music round tonight, giving you a 50/50 for the artist on each clip, which I thought was a fun twist. So how about that New Hampshire primary? I’m a little embarrassed for Hillary Clinton; the desperation of her campaign is getting more and more palpable with each passing day. They seem dead-set on touting her experience, which was the same tactic she used when competing with a then-little-known senator named Barack Obama. However, when she used that tactic against Obama,

"The Big Game"
Renerdssance Man

If you’re the NFL, why do you care about other companies using the phrase “Super Bowl” in their advertisements? I mean, I get that it’s trademarked—it’s your intellectual property—and you CAN stop people from using it, but why? Seems like a waste of time and money to fight something that is essentially free publicity. Just go after ads that degrade the value of the trademark: “Come to Uncle Jimmy’s Porn Shack and Euthanasia Emporium, where we’re having the Super Bowl of all sales this Sunday!” I suppose the league has to defend their trademark or risk losing it, but everyone is gonna say Super Bowl no matter what.

THANK YOU FOR SIGNING UP FOR "BROASTING" FACTS
Dark Lord of Quiz

"Broasting" is a trademarked method of pressure frying that was developed in the early 1950s. Broasting equipment is only available commercially and purchasers must follow specifications to be allowed to use the term "broasted." I bring this up for two reasons. One is that Johnny's Navajo Hogan offers Broasted Chicken on its menu and two is that, until Thursday evening, I was wholly unaware what "broasted" chicken was. But now I know, you guys...OH, THE KNOWLEDGE THAT

That's Not My Name ♫
Kelly the Bearcat

Do you ever have so many witty and clever things going through your head at one time that it’s hard to pick the right one? Yeah, me neither. I do, however, have a few somewhat witty and clever things to say. Being the last quiz before Valentine’s Day, I felt it appropriate that I took about 90% of the teams playing last night’s Quiz virginity. I feel like such a stud. Even more so because none of you all remembered my name. I’m like the epitome of a Quiz one-night stand. I felt dirty and oddly successful at the same time. I may have had to take a shower when I got home. Spunkmates took third with 56 points, Robots

Crack in the Smoothies
Bob with a J

There must have been something stronger than caffiene in the coffee, because the joint was jumping last night. And not in a bad, elbow-to-elbow, yell to talk to your neighbor kind of way. It was, dare I say, fun! And every time I got on the microphone, an eerie silence descended on the crowd, as if I was... some kind of god. Welp, that went to my head fast.With regards to our round seven - This Round May Contain Nudity - I realized that I never fulfilled my promise to strip for you during the round. I wouldn't want to disappoint you, so I went ahead and uploaded a (PG-13) strip routine to youtube. Hope you enjoy!

Jeremy and I were feeling frisky last night at Rapture, not that that's unusual. I hope everyone enjoyed our wittiest banter. I think we're going to try investing in some headset mics and working on some dance routines.  We learned a lot last night - especially some seriously deep introspection on the meaning of our lives...our souls. By that I mean dealing with wrapping our minds around Round 6. We also listened to way too much No Doubt. Way too much. One & 1/2 Brains did well for sticking around for half a quiz.

Duh! This Sounds Easy!
Stevie D

First, packed freaking house.  Stealing chairs from all corners around the bar just so people can sit.  The late comers had the best seats in the house, literally.  They sat in the Office chairs they had upstairs.  I think that had chair races at one point....not sure who won.....I guess everybody won with that little excursion. Next, Round one: Duh! This was a round that was supposed to be easy.  The obvious answer was usually the answer (Ohio river is between Kentucky and where..... for instance) Well, apparently nobody in the house got the memo. The average score was 4 on this round as it kicked their collecting

Civic Duty
Charles

Guess what I did this week?  Jury Duty is super boring.  I mean, maybe it could have been exciting, but I didn't get picked for nothing.  Yeah, sure, it happened to fall on my days off, but I'd really rather give the money back for the opportunity to sleep in.  I'd have loved the chance to get on a Grand Jury, I'd indict the shit out of everyone!  If the state won't give me the shot, I might have to go vigilante on this piece.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  Don't tell me that "Gyro" is pronounced "Hero" or some shit, you ever seen meat spin around on a Heroscope?   Round Two.
