Hashtag Hate Is Alive And Well
Mikey DoDo

Rumble in The Pub ends this week, and with it a chapter in NOLA's quiz history. This city had one team step up to the plate to represent us, and that team ran the ball as hard as it could.   #Biohazard can now make claim to be one of the best quiz teams in the entire Geeks Who Drink network. While the final scores won't be announced until next week it can be clearly stated that they've won the southern region in an outright rout. My only hope for the squad is that now that they've gone through the gauntlet, they can learn to take a step back and breath a little from now on.   #Biohazard's win streak has not gone unnoticed. Good Night Ninjas decided

I'm About To Eat A $20 Piece of Cheese
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

So, Friday night means board games with my friends.  I bring a badass cheeseboard and they let me drink their booze.  So, today when I was at the store, browsing the cheese section, the lady behind the counter said "anything specific you're looking for?" I told her I was trying to balance out some other cheeses I bought.  "But nothing boring.  I like the stanky stuff.  Even if I'm going to end up being the only one eating it."  So she pointed to this cheese in a box and said "it was napoleon's favorite cheese" and told me its kinda yeasty and to smell it and it smells of socks so I knew I'd love it.   Ya'll.  It was $20.  And for 2

Bringing You The Crazy For 5 Years And Counting
Gallifreak

Holy cow! I can't think of a weirder way to celebrate 5 years of hosting for Geeks Who Drink that with what went down last night. I'm gonna talk mostly about that with this blog so that those of you that didn't come out to celebrate with us will see just what exactly you missed! So, I held an online poll to see what crazy getup I was going to wear to my 5th anniversary quiz. Late this afternoon it was TIED. Equal votes for me in a luchador costume and for me to wear my Traxedo. So I did both. It just so happened that I had a lucha mask that matched the Traxedo and we were good to go. There were a lot of familiar faces at quiz. I'm going to call out three. Mitch,

The 8 Bit Friend Zone
David Mitchell

Tonight's round reminded us why it's important to watch the news, lots of neat stuff happening. Round two had us listening to singers whine about the friendzone they found themselves in, then we found out who knew their rights.   Round four was about the weird TV people who include Teddy Roosevelt, Tom Servo and Terri Schiavo. Round five showed us how all those child stars look like now, with round six being all about Wes Cravin (RIP!) and round seven playing some 8 bit versions of our favorite animated TV shows. Round eight as always filled out the quiz with random knowledge.

Quiz Is Not Over
WillSalerno

Stop not coming to quiz.   Rumors of our demise are greatly exaggerated. As usual, I hosted a mediocre quiz last night and, as usual, a bunch of new people showed up, recruited a regular, ate a rotisserie chicken, and won.   What else happened ... football starts next week ... I can't pronounce "Sharia" ... aaaand IDGAF.   I am going to go read that new Star Wars book. It is in continuity and I hear Wedge shows up.   Next week, let's fuck up some tacos?

You're Looking a Little Wes Craven Heavy There
Sweet Adam

Imagine a world where Tom Brady doesn’t ever hear about his deflated balls. Ha! That’s a joke! It doesn’t exist! Maybe in an alternate universe where people are kind and understanding and don’t need to manipulate equipment to adjust the outcome of a game we wouldn’t have to go down that road. Keep the Brady names coming. I hope he loses his first game and we get to ridicule him all season long. Lessee here. The ballet Rite of Spring (a little early in the calendar right now) caused a near-riot when it was released? News to me! Now we have to rely on VMAs and Twitter fights to get anyone worked up in this day and age. Lucky for you guys
[ ...more... ]

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.

Inflated Egos
Renerdssance Man

In a MASSIVE upset, I didn’t have a single Tom Brady-themed name at quiz last night. This absolutely baffles me. On a day that cries of “freedom!” and “due process!" echoed through the streets of Boston, the teams at the Blackstone Grill focused their laser-like wit on the Syrian refugee crisis and everyone’s favorite erstwhile Kentucky clerk (now with 100% more contempt of court!). Given how many iterations of “Tom Brady’s Deflated Balls” I’ve had as teams over the past 6 months, I figured at least one set of smartass would come with something. But alas. On the last

Angela: For a moment this morning, Reba figured out how to use the cardboard scratcher. Jeremy: Yay! Reba will someday figure it out and go nuts! So as you ate your salad last night at 21st, I thought of Dimitri Martin. Jeremy: His joke: Salads are exhausting. First you put all these things together to make it. Then you have to make a small salad on your fork. One piece of each thing. By the end you've made 17 salads. Jeremy: This is why I want Pizza today. I feel like pizza gives of itself. Salad just takes! =) Angela: lol...I love Dimitri Martin! And he's not wrong. Salad definitely takes some commitment. Veggies in general really. It takes so long just to

I've Been Waiting Years to Say This- I Shared My Burrito With a Stray Cat
Carlos

Aw heck yeah. He just took the steak and cheese parts, but I can't say I expected much other help from him in any other fashion. Other than Dog Alert partner. Killed it, Felix. What a great quiz we had, folks! I stayed pretty excited the whole time thanks to the little Peanut Gallery accompanying us for the first few rounds. Unfortunately they got discouraged from your mega brains and signed off halfway through, but I seriously do enjoy having somebody to (sporadically) talk to/at during quiz. It sounds super high-maintenance because there's a line you have to toe where I must cut you off and yell things into a mic and interrupt the conversation so it's not for everybody.

How about those Seahawks?! Oh, I mean… HOW ABOUT THAT QUIZ in a different state than the team I just mentioned?! Oh whatever, guys; they're PNW locals. We can love the Seahawks in Portland, right? Whew, glad that's settled! And if you think otherwise, you're going to have to talk to my friends, team Legion of Boom. I give my sincerest apologies to winners Jesus Congoolius for mispronouncing Jesus. Turns out I should have been saying "Hey, Zeus!" instead of pronouncing it that other Jesus-y way. Let it be known at this very moment: I love phonetic guides to unique team names. Want me to say something

Friends call me Michael Bay because I love action and make a lot of sound effects with my mouth.

What do you think about the new format
ShadCampbell

How did everybody like the new format?  Tracie and I are thinking about continuing to split the hosting duties.  There are just some rounds that are better read by a woman and she can pronounce the medical terms, where I cannot.  We will ask around the bar next week.    We started out the night with Random Knowledge and listened to some songs about getting friend zoned.  In round 3 we got a 50/50 shot at some of our rights and freedoms.  And then we tried to guess the names of people that had a t and v in them.  Before we took the break we looked at pictures of child actors all grow’d up.  Tracie took over for the second half

You're Adults, You Can Handle It

Or so I decided, basically by myself. If you have to be 21 to get into a place, you can handle hearing a few swears now and again. Anywho, congratulations to Trivia Newton John for taking home the gold tonight, with honorary mention going to Nutt Butt Goes To The Vet, a name I am relieved to say I don't understand.   Favorite Team Name: I Don't Count. He's been here for a while, but I have to appreciate any team name that makes my life easier. (This is the bartender, who can't win stuff. But he likes to play along.) Favorite Wrong Answer: Most Teams, for suggesting

I thought I already wrote this stupid thing! Accursed internet!

 

Anywho, there's not much to say. I'm a complete trivia pub quiz nerd, but I don't have any pub quiz nerd friends, so being on the other side of things was a natural move for me. I also have decent public speaking experience from being on my high school debate team, so if you need a witty retort or some thick-as-molasses sarcasm, I'm your man.

 

I'm in school for engineering at the moment, so my schedule is pretty open at night. I mainly stay at Wilson and Washburn, but I'll probably pop up in other locations around the Omaha/Lincoln area.

Who the hell moved my vagina?

I took a page from Josh, and decided to keep up the Urban Dictionary theme this week.  By the way, I am standing in for Josh.  So! Apparently the "Stefani" is a new dance craze.  As UD describes it: A dance that is so spastic it can be compared to a kangaroo searching for its joey.  Often results in muscle or bone injury. Recently seen as the choice of dance for the Kardashian family. So it appears I have finally made it, like big time.  I mean, the Kardashian's think I am a big deal.  I couldn't find documentation of the actual dance moves themselves, but, I tried to get crazy while jamming to 8-bit Captain Planet and totally

Let's Give Some Others a Chance

With Horsedrawn Miscarriage taking the week off, it opened it up for the rest of the field to take a crack at 1st place. Those hopes would be short lived as This Shit Just Got Real walked through the door followed by That Ain't Gravy and from there on out it was a two team race. This Shit Just Got Real took the victory with 83 points meaning Gravy settled for second with 76 points.   Well I think we have officially beaten the Wes Craven nightmare categories now...it's done, let the man rest in piece.

It was First Thursday in downtown Boise, ID.  Everyone was geared up for a crazy night.  But the crazy night never got crazy.  In fact, it ended up being a pretty calm night.  It seemed like most every person in Boise was keeping their heads down until the massive BSU vs UW game less than 24 hours away.  This blog will end up being a mash up of last night’s quiz and tonight big game.  If you’re not from Idaho or Washington maybe you don’t know, so here’s the scoop.  Chris Peterson began coaching for Boise State in 2000.  He became the head coach in Dec. 2006.  Under his leadership the BSU Bronco’s won 5 conference

Twelve teams matched wits and beers at Declaration Brewing Thursday. The scoring was as tight as something else with tight scoring, with My Boss is a Raging Whore winning the night by a mere point. Quaalude Pudding Pops took a valiant second and two teams tied for third place: Nothing . . . Butt Pirates and Unprepared, so a ro-sham-bo tournament was held. DAMN YOU PAPER! YOU SHOULDN’T BE ABLE TO BEAT ANYTHING!   Tom Servo was one of the characters with a “T” and “V” in his name (round six).
