Swimmers Head to Oregon to Cure Their Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Geoff (like Chaucer)

Wow.  Halfway through the year, and so many things have happened.  Where to start... I joined Geeks who Drink just a few months ago.  More recent happenings: We now have legal same-sex marriage in the US, a debt crisis in Greece, more war in the Middle East, and we already have had two named tropical storms in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean.  I can tell it's going to be a wild ride.   Kinda like tonight's quiz.  Baker Street Pub & Grill in Cypress was split evenly between quizzers and Women's World Cup fans, and some were wearing both hats interchangeably (myself included.  What?  I like soccer.)  Ten teams filled the

GEEKS.  I enjoy role-playing games, listening to music, and video games.  Reddit is my bread and butter.  I know a lot about a lot of things.

WHO.  Military veteran, computer expert.  Young at heart, sarcastic to a fault, and funny.  I hope.

DRINK.  I don't drink often, but when I do, it's usually a beer.  I drink shots on special occasions only.  I am known to sing karaoke at times.

I don't know about you, but I'm pooped.  That round of musical parodies really wiped me out, but I was able to push through round 8 without too much of a stink.  Alright, enough with the shitty puns.   Honestly, I had no idea what to expect at Hong Kong tonight. I've never hosted in Cambridge before! And of course, I was nervous for nothing, because the whole experience was fantastic.  Thank you all for being so welcoming,  for making a potentially tricky situation easy, and for going dead at the sports question after cheering on, "It's a poopy poop."  I'm sorry I crushed you with the Lamb Chop thing.   Next week it's back

Extra Second Means More Quiz!
TimGaydos

We had the opportunity to celebrate a momentous occasion together tonight.  Happy Leap Second!  We got a whole extra second of pub quiz tonight and I was happy to share the experience with you.  Or I would have, if I wasn’t the only person who had any idea what I was talking about.  Whatever, your loss.     Plenty of other things to celebrate.  Like my return from my leave of absence.  Yay me!  And also the packed house we had tonight.  Lots of teams to compete against, and a very close leaderboard that ended with a bang.   First, let’s take a look at what we learned tonight.   We

We had a real live one tonight—Not only was the venue popping, but I was coming through clear on the mic and we were able to keep things running pretty smoothly, with only the most basic of hiccups, aside from one little screw-up on my part I'll get to in a bit.  But we had a solid 8 teams, and they all kicked no small amount of ass, with just a narrow margin putting our top 3 in the lead.   I biffed at one point, though—Not knowing the first thing about how pro sports leagues are organized, I misinterpreted a question in Round 8, and when repeatedly asked for clarification I just ended up making things worse, such that no one got the right answer, at

Poop is funny.  Broadway is decent.  Broadway plus poop is decently funny.  Cheers to the group that put that one together. Tonight was another awesome night where we not only reached fire capacity for the quiz (yay!), but not all teams simply fit into the room (boo!).  We will always work to accommodate you If that ever happens, but if you ever can't squeeze in and don't want to sit right against the stage (or heck, even on stage if you have to), I strongly recommend checking out our ChuBurger quiz down the street on Saturday nights as well.  Same great beer, tasty burgers, more room to shit talk.

I'm Sorry That You Seem to Be Confused
Kavi Kardoshian

When Brandy and Monica's duet "The Boy is Mine" came out in 1998, I was 12 and in 6th grade. It was released just before summer, which makes a lot of sense, because I can remember a lot of idle time at my friend Katy's house spent listening to that song and arguing over which of us was Brandy and which of us was Monica. The two of us weren't fighting over any boys, and we were both at least partially white girls with very little sass to our names, but there it is. 12-year-olds will be 12-year-olds. I watched that video at Katy's house more times than I can count, and both of us always wanted to be Brandy.   I guess it's that Brandy was by far the more famous of the two

And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'd never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
Oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're breathing fire
Some nights you're carved in ice
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again

Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And I'l be there until the final act
I would do anything for love, and I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
Some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Maybe I'm lonely, that's all I'm qualified to be
That's just one and only, the one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you. So long, so long
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Will you raise me up? will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colourise my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Broke As Greece
PeteGilmore

Broke As Greece, just an innocent name which references the current banking crisis in a small south eastern European nation.  Broke Ass Grease, this now takes on an entirely different meaning.  It could mean that your ass grease is not currently in a fully functional state and you will be forced to cancel your post quiz plans.  It could mean that your Ass Grease is reckless with his funds.  It could be a remedy to ail an ill donkey.  It could refer to the sludge that gathers above your butt crack and behind your balls when you don't shower because you are depressed about not having any money.

Super Party Fun Time
Jules

Wow. There were a lot of people at The Glenn tonight. The beer was flying, the onion rings were frying, and we all had a freakin' awesome time. More fried food for all!!! And beer!   We learned a little about fish and the 90's and several states. I liked the P&R nod (no...this was not a question. Get your spoilers somewhere else, people) and round 7 was....special? Funny? Horrendous? I can't quite think of an adjective to describe it. But I'm sure there is one. And it was that.   Can we talk more about the food at The Glenn? Seriously....these plates all look delicious.

I'm so excited!!!!! We finished our month with a crowded bar and it was SUPER AWESOME!!! We had 16 teams tonight! I haven't had this many people and this much fun hosting a quiz in a long time. By the way, have I mentioned that I love a big crowd? I do really enjoy the slower pace and getting to hang out with you more on the quieter nights, but there's something about the chaos and adrenaline that comes with a big crowd that makes me so happy. Our scores were tight tonight, though not particularly high. The Picasso round was rough for most and the parodied music round wasn't as impressive as I would have hoped. However the tough questions separate the heroes from the legends and help

Born in 1981, male, 6'0", Aquarious, 3/4 German, 1/4 Norwegian, 100% AWESOME. Those are most important facts about me, or at least the most definite. Everything else is changeable, but I'll tell you a little bit about me at the moment. When I'm not being the coolest Quizmaster in the world, I spend my days delivering mail for the United States Postal Service. I'm a "power nerd" and Star Wars is my area of expertise. Though "power nerd" status does require me to somewhat regularly play Magic: The Gathering, D&D, and spend a minimum of 12 hours a week playing video games of some sort. My other hobbies include disc golfing, regular golfing, and texas hold 'em. I am also a biker! I ride a black 2013 Harley V-Rod Muscle that I've named Balerion, after a dragon in Game Of Thrones. My nerdiness even spills over into my tough biker side. If their is anything else you want to know, just ask. I'm an open book.

I started quizzing way back in 2009 in a little 'ol town called Austin, TX. After making the move to Houston, I became a regular quizzer at Little Woodrow's Rice Village on Tuesday nights. It's more fun to win when you're beating grad students and doctors. A year went by, and I grew into quite the quiz addict. It was time to up the ante. I needed to be closer to the quiz action. At the auditions, I fought other contestants to the death to achieve an unexpected, well-fought victory. I now host Monday and Tuesday evenings while drinking delicious beer to forget the things I did to get here.

Before my quiz life, I attended school in San Antonio, where I became an English major and a rabid Spurs fan. During the day I work as a private tutor and professional taco slinger. When not engaged in any of these wonderful occupations, you'll find me buried in a book somewhere or out and about with my Australian Shepherd, Jam. I can even be spotted playing quiz on a Wednesday or Thursday. I can't quit you, quiz.

Join me for all my hosting smart-assery at Neil's Bahr Monday nights in East Downtown or in Rice Village at Little Woodrow's on Tuesdays.

Darius is originally from New Jersey, so please keep that in mind when he talks about his love for 24-hour diners (garlic bread and chocolate pudding is a typical order). Some of his favorite things include dogs, zombies, and snickerdoodle cookies.

You can usually find him with a stout in his hand and scruff on his face. Darius likes to make YouTube videos and do theater things, too. Despite his super tough look, he's kind of a sweetheart and will most likely melt if you pay him a compliment. Keep paper towels handy.
