McCongahahghgy's Wisdom
A.

Pimlicans! Super close quiz. Much competition. Wow. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: things that Matthew Perry does not remember, Sesame Street parodies of songs (loved it), McCongnangngnaghy quote or “Lost” quote, double letter pairs in answers, Sticker Boy (?) interrupting movies, Chinese New Year stuff, Justin Timberlake movies, and finally: random knowledge. Have any of you been to Oxheart? I’m going to try it next week. I’m pretty excited. I really like all of you. Sorry for not doing my McConangygyghyg accent. It’s really pretty bad. Like I said up there, we had a really close quiz. Winners won by very slim

February has been off to a brilliant start amongst the teams here at Preservation Pub. The future is wide open and anything is more possible than ever this year. With some relocated teams, some returning beasts, and even a few new bloods ready to bring the heat, 2016 is shaping up to be a perfect storm in the arena of quizzing. Let's meet tonight's teams! The always resilient, never backing down, At Least We're Never Last! Refusing to give anything less than the best. The solo juggernaut of the night, Jellocroix, keeping pressure on those big teams with their collective thoughts. Triumverate, reminding us that three heads are

Cam Newton’s Super Bowel Movement
BJ, the lovable scamp

I had to start with a sports joke title, because there was a team with a perfect name for that. And because it is all over my Facebook so I now feel like a goddamned expert on United Statesian Football. More sports! Quiz sports! While Quizards of Oz dominated the night, there seemed to be a concerted effort by QoD and Drinking Team w/a Trivia Problem to keep Super Bowel Movement from being on top. In hindsight, not a bad idea, no one wants that above them. What if it fell? Gross. Tom, Crow & Gypsy made their wise-cracking presence known and finished in their

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

A Quick Stop at Patsy's!
Adrian

Monday night was my first visit to Patsy’s Cowgirl Café, and it rocked. It’s not often I’ve had the opportunity to be up on stage for competitions, and I treasured the opporunity. The staff and guests at Patsy’s gave me an absolutely warm welcome. Steven told me you folks were great, and he definitely was right! Also, a belly full of good beer, mozzarella sticks, and cow chips all made for a great night. Thanks to a combination of three great rounds and then five answer sheets full of silly graffiti, newcomer Papas Con Huevos

What the crap you guys?! Why has no one drawn a picture of me?! I found the picture drawn for sub Quizmaster Danual when I was cleaning my box last night, but there are no pictures for me!?

Super Stupor
Josh

Perhaps it was a Super Bowl hangover that was the cause for a more reserved pub quiz crowd on Monday night. But it was certainly as competitive as it always is, with 4 teams in the hunt for the Holy Grail of Dylan Murphy’s (a $50 bar tab) in the last round of play. A slightly larger audience may have viewed the defensive donnybrook that was Sunday’s championship tilt, but had America been watching the affairs of Dylan Murphy’s last night, they would have been treated to just as fierce a contest. (All right, I am being hyperbolic, but I am an English teacher). The Round recaps: The first series of questions tested the players’ knowledge of the late 1990s

Vincent's Dream
Shannon

Fairytale snowflakes spiraled anywhere but down outside of O'Henry's tonight as five teams drifted in on an icy wind and settled in for a cozy quiz.  The single representative of sERi!l K1LleR HanDwIT1n6 sat quietly at the corner of the bar and, a man on a solo mission, started it all off right with a solid round 1 and a quick bonus beer score. After that, though, there was no surpassing the power of the other, larger teams, and he ended up being in 5th place.   Deez Catz were four strong last night, and as cute as ever. I do wish I could overhear the things that make them all bubble over in giggles, sometimes. Alas,

5 teams came out to Gypsy Parlor last night! Round 1 kicked off the night with a round on things that happened between fall of ’96 and spring of 2000 due to Matthew Perry not remembering what happened during that time frame. Teams did well on this round! Round 2 featured an audio round with songs being covered by Sesame Street. Teams did really well on this round! Round 3 featured a 50/50 round on quotes from Lost vs quotes from Lincoln commercials. Teams did well on this round! After 3 rounds Bad News Beers took the lead followed by Quizlamic State in second and Freakin’ Ricans in third! Round 4 was a round on

Cold Temperatures Produce Girl Power
TJMcDonald

If you live within three hours of Iowa City you know how cold it is right now.* Too bad no one told the quiz takers as we had 14 teams show up to partake in a battle of wits. Unfortunately, I think the cold weather froze some brain cells based on the answers I read.   Before I get to the crazy answer I'd first like to give a shout out to the quiz writers at Geeks Who Drink. In round 8 I had to read this question out loud:What Haruki Murakami novel gets its name from a Beatles song about adultery? Apparently the writers felt no pronunciation guide was needed because Haruki Murakami is such a common American name only someone with the IQ of an avocado would not know

When I Get That Feeling
ChrisPothoven

It's that time of year again. The long, grueling 7 months between the Super Bowl and the pre-season opener. It's the off-season. Now Sundays have to be for chores instead for beer and football. It also hurts that the game was such a dud, too. It's a good thing Carolina didn't win, because they'd still be stuck there trying to name an MVP. Manning sucked, Newton sucked even more, and no one even bothered trying to stop Ware and Von Miller from penetrating the offensive line, and then the quarterback. I'm pretty sure I saw some tea-bagging in there as well. I'll allow it. Lots of lead changes tonight. In fact, there was a different team in the lead during each scoring break. It

I enjoy long walks on the beach with my hound and an adult beverage at the end of the day.  And the middle.  Sometimes the start, too.  Know that Sundays are for football and smartassery and the first team to miss a Star Wars question will have hell to pay.  Quoth the Quiz Master, GO SEAHAWKS!

Super Bowl 50: Monkey...Pug..Baby?
Jeanette

Who could even imagine a day when we weren't excited about Super Bowl commercials, because all of them were easily accessible on the internet days before the big game? Well, that day has sadly come my friends, and I hate it very much. Not only was I sad to see the lame commercials, I thought I was tripping acid when that hybrid monster creature showed up on the screen. What was that an ad for? Was that a part of the 90's Say No To Drugs Campaign? Because if 17 year old Jeanette saw that commercial, she'd probably still be dope free since '83!   I don't care much for football, but I was excited for my buddies in the Rocky Mountains yesterday. Whoohoo go little

Welp. It's been what? 17 years since the last Super Bowl win for the Denver Broncos? It's honestly a little greedy to hope for or expect more victories in that timeframe considering the fact that there are 32 teams in the NFL. I'm personally not a sports guy, I'm one that would make some light hearted jokes about "sportsball" and whatnot, but I try to limit myself; it's not cool to try to bring other people down just because you don't share the same interests. I also always want the Broncos/Avalanche/etc to do well, I have hometown pride after all. I just never expect any of the Colorado teams to do well as the last few championship showings were not great. I'm looking at you, Denver Broncos

Who knows Lost!

Who knew that lost and a really shitty lincoln commercial could cause so much chaos among us?! That's exactly what happened last night and boy did it cause some chaos! I think this is month is a pretty good month for comic book nerds, were all finally getting the only version of deadpool that the fans have ever wanted ever since they horrifically butchered him in that wolverine movie! Do you guys remember that? Do you remember how they made a wolverine movie with deadpool and they decided somewhere along the lines to COMPLETELY GET RID OF HIS MOUTH! That makes sense, let's just cut out the one thing that makes this character completely unique and devastate

TEN teams at The Forum Puyallup tonight!! We had some long-lost returning players, some new-to-us-but-not-new-to-Geeks new folks, and, as EVER, the very best regulars!   We launched into round one with some great scores on things that happened during Matthew Perry’s period of memory loss. It Was Nice of Beyoncé and Bruno to Adopt the Partridge Family scored a perfect round!   Round two was KILLER!! All teams scored natural 10s or higher and ALL teams used their jokers! (I unintentionally helped out the scores by managing to corrupt the first three audio files… That’s a free 6 points to EVERYONE!) But still, It

Justin Timberlake, a modern day Dick Clark
JWarr

Justin Timberlake is in fact bringing sexy back in his academy-robbed film Alpha Dog.  For those of you who haven’t seen it, the premise is simple.  There’s a dog.  He’s in charge.  It’s kinda boss.  You get to see all his muscle bits.  But here are some things JT was in that maybe you don’t remember… He played the middle kid in Home Improvement! Oh wait, that was JTT… He wrote an episode of Grey’s Anatomy.  No, wait, he wrote a song that was in Grey’s Anatomy. He won X-Factor! Oh damn it, he just performed on X Factor.  And he didn’t make it to the next round.

GWD gets RAW
Cheems

For those that don't know, Red Papaya is conveniently located next to KeyArena. Because of our proximity to that venue, we get interesting crowds wandering in every now and then. From Beliebers to whatever fans of Bette Midler are called, to last night's WWE RAW fans. Now I used to be a huge pro wrasslin fan, but then I grew up. JK, I liked pro wrestling into adulthood but then their actors and storylines got too crazy and annoying. Once the Rock and Stone Cold left, there was no reason to continue. But people still love it, including the drunken trio that wandered in with blinking unicorn horn lights on their head. I guess RAW has embraced unicorns or the gay community,
