MURICA
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

What does it mean to be an American? Is it all about freedom, liberty, justice, and the American way? As the most American holiday of the year approaches this Saturday, I ponder now to collect my thoughts on the value of my heritage to our great nation.   So often we Americans get caught up in beliefs and ideas of the Founding Fathers of this nation. It's always "What would the Founding Fathers have thought about this current social issue?" or "What would George Washington do if he were alive today?". These sorts of questions are irrelevant, because those guys are dead. There's no way of knowing what they would do if they were leading us in modern day America. I certainly

What do you put in these spaces? I'm a 26 year old Hoosier, still trying to survive in Texas. I like pizza, sleeping, having fun, breathing, and other things like that. I do not like socks/shoes, brussel sprouts, anything from Wisconsin, and people who are dicks to other people. I never grew out of my dinosaur phase.

Go Cubs.

“You’re All I’ve Got Tonight”
CLAY-TON, The Imposter

…is a popular hit record by The Cars, which I played from my iTunes library between R1 & R2 in the Quiz tonight in honor of the single couple who showed up to play. To make things interesting, I split them up into two teams to square off for the prizes on offer.   Not that the evening need help being interesting. There were some technical difficulties of the remote control system switching variety afoot, which led to a late start and a slightly abbreviated Quiz. I have to hand it to the staff at The House, who handled the issue like champs. After doing an “Unplugged” version of R1 standing beside the table shared by my teams, the crew had a PA speaker

A Random Assortment...
Andy

...of random thoughts inspired by this weeks quiz. Well, I guess if they were all inspired by the same quiz, does that imply that they are no longer random? A question for the philosophers. But I digest (pizza)! A pair of thoughts from this weeks round number 1 come to mind. The first was “wow, do you people waste time!” I’m as guilty as the next person about bitching and moaning about not having enough time in the day to get ‘er done. But I’ll tell you what, when fall rolls around and 1:59 am rolls back to 1:00 am the very next minute guess who’s ordering another Maker’s Mark Manhattan! This guy!

Showdown
TheHypnotoad

Another great night to hang out at the Warehouse Saloon, with late guest appearances by Nick and Chuck to the delight of all in attendance, and a Rangers win to boot! Round featuring "ingo", and I also think every word that ends with those four letters, along with a sweet Oingo Boingo reference. The audio round was punk covers and we unanimously decided that the cover of "My Heart Will Go On" is significantly better than the original. I'd like to express my appreciation for the Bambi line in the Before and After round three, dark with just the right amount of humor. I was not aware Rube Golderg was Born on July 4th, why do we not celebrate our nation's independence

Jeremy: Phew! Thanks again to everyone for coming out tonight. You said it was the hottest day so far? Not for long though...   Angela: Hottest day of the year so far. I'm super happy our quizzers chose to spend part of their evening with us!   Jeremy: Yes! It was a very fun crowd too. Had people from several states there - Texas and someone from South Carolina. Maybe it was North Carolina.   Angela: Yes, the Texas quizzers play GWD in San Antonio. Always fun to have out of town GWD quizzers!   Jeremy: Ahh nice.

Another beautiful night at the Old Chicago, where errbody knows your name. So things happened in the news this week, right? I mean gay marriage wasn't legalized...and there wasn't a controversy over the confederate flag...and healthcare wasn't upheld...but whatever. Something about Greece...and Greeks...and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Having a lisp would be unfortunate in Gweece.Peas and Thank You took second this week. Oh no!

Fourthy of July-ey
McFly

Hey there, all you Americanos. How excited is everyone for the Fourth of July coming up, along with our country's best women soccer players and their pursuit of another World Cup title? I mean, how could we ask for a better weekend? I am flying out to Ohio tomorrow to celebrate all of these wonderful things with my family. First, the fourth of July has never been a big deal for me, but as a teacher, it is one of those days where I can embrace a day off with everyone I love. I have learned to embrace July 4, because when I was younger, it was a very complicated holiday. I am a vegetarian and I didn't drink back when. So, from what I understood, meat and beer were the two reasons anyone whose

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well. You can find me at the 1up on Colfax periodically. I love playing GWD and being a Quiz Master.

Just a quick one this week, since e’rybody be on that vacation-type shit. While you’re erotically stuffing tubed meat and liquor into your sexy mouths, try not to blow off anything important with illegal fireworks this weekend. And by “important,” I mean your genitals. You can lose a digit or two and still be a relatively-normal person, but if you destroy your naughty bits, you’re fucked, and not in the good way ever again. Stay on your hustle, keep on your grind, bump some uglies while wrapped in an American flag (but not a Confederate flag, unless you’re a racist asshole), and I’ll see y’all next week.

Hey, Quizzers! It's almost America's birthday! Please have a fun and safe weekend! Someone from my hometown in Michigan died in a horrible fireworks accident last weekend, and it was someone my mom used to live next to & babysit. Super sad! So yeah, don't do that shit!   Moving on... Quiz was packed again this week! There were some new faces in the crowd- welcome, newbies! This week we talked about flamingos, listened to fucking horrible punk-ish covers, and centered our before or after round on the lovely Carly Simon. We talked about others who share America's birthday, attempted to spell some Greek names, and discussed the potato heaven that is Idaho. And

"Frankly, my dear, I don't quiz a damn."

BEST. NIGHT. EVER.   We sang happy birthday. We laughed. We cried. I had a chick pull up her dress and show me the scars on her thigh (Alright. There was no crying but it rhymed with thigh. Sort of.).   It was the first night where there was standing room only. Highest head count yet. 12 teams. Big teams. Loud teams. We had a birthday, Will, who was born on the 4th of July, celebrating his and our country’s birth along with the fact that he can watch that depressing Tom Cruise movie and get all the references (BT-dub, has anyone else heard that Tom might be quitting Scientology to spend more time with his daughter?

PREFACE WRITTEN AFTER THE FACT:  I really should have spent most of this space lauding God Save Miss America for being at least half Terrier (Go BU! Go BU! Sing her praises loud and true!), and shaming Ian for leaving early (with permission); but I just couldn't do it. Not tonight. Here's what you get instead....Ahh, it's good to be home. I've been doing a bit of subbing this week (and since it's summer, when everybody else goes on vacation, I'm sure there's more to come), but Hugh's will always feel like home.

I'm pretty sure I saw a chipmunk
Keith

So today was another quiztacular night at the Ingersoll Tap in the Moines, some teams did well, others not so well, while still other teams demonstrated silent racism in some of the answers they provided. As for me, I was really happy as I saw what I think was an infant chipmunk in the parking lot before the quiz started. Some days it's the littlest things that can salvage a day that would have been underwhelming otherwise. Also, I was criticized for saying "god damn" which a) is the lightest obscenity I use and 2) wasn't a product of my own prior pain no matter what the woman with Sangria mouth tried to ascribe to me. Is there any more insipid sentence in the world

You're So Vain, You have Patriotingo!
Big Daddy J

Wrong answers that make me chuckle are the best wrong answers. Which is why, in a round about words ending in “-ingo” the wrong answer in reference to the word Jingo truly brightened my night. I would like to lobby for Patriotingo to be entered into our lexicon for no other reason than it is far more descriptive and just plain silly.   Nine teams stuck it out for the long haul tonight at Angela's at the Crosswalk and it was good. Round 2 was our highest scoring round with two teams hitting 12, before jokering, and one

Before or After and No This Round Isn't About You

Tonight we had ten teams gather for a battle of wits and alcohol tolerance up at what I'm starting to believe is a five star restaurant in disguise but we'll talk about that another time. Everyone was off to good starts and at the last minute, Uncle U made an executive decision and added a bottle to third place winnings. It was an intense spelling competition in which neither team could spell medulla oblongata as a tie breaker but we found a way to settle. The bottle and third ranking went to A-1, who some people say had extra members floating as the night went on but we'll have better eyes next week. Second went to Turd Ferguson,
