Hey there, My Sporting Life Bar Quiz Players! Another Saturday and another fun pub quiz at Sporting life Bar. As always, I hope you guys had fun. Some familiar faces were back after a few weeks away and some new teams joined us in the battle for gift certificates. Let’s get right to it: TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ: “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” Remember how I told you about the documentary about Ginger Baker, the drummer of the band Cream? Well, it’s called “Beware of Mr. Baker and here it is. He’s

I am a husband to Emliy and a father to Sadie. Two of the best things I've ever been able to say about myself. I'm a living, breathing IMDB. Pretty good with TV and music info too. When it comes to these things, I have impeccable taste, so I'm a snob about it; both film and music. I am a quizmaster with Geeks Who Drink. I host 3 pub quizzes per week. If you are ever in Vegas, you should come to one. They're fun and you can win stuff!

Tonight was a great quiz. I subbed for some nearby venues recently, and I must admit, I was longing for the home crowd at Left Coast. Also, another great mix of first-timers and regulars, and competitive teams arose from both groups. Brainfarts took their normal lead and held it throughout the quiz. There was a fierce back and forth competition for 2nd place. It was so close that there was a mere three points spread between 2nd and 5th place! Ultimately, The 3 Amigos were successful in sealing 2nd place, with Will Blunders Never Cease, Leaning Jowlers, and Suck It, Trebek! Following shortly

My geek-dom started at a young age with an (un)healthy fascination with Star Wars. That was the beginning of the end. In middle school, I was a member of the group of kids that actually played AD&D in the library during lunch. Current obsessions include Star Wars (still), Game of Thrones, John Williams and politics. I'm local to South Orange County: I grew up in San Clemente and now live in San Juan Capistrano with my wife (Erin) and son (Gavin). Where you can find me: Saturday- Left Coast Brewery at 7pm. Occasionally subbing other SoCal quizes. You might just get lucky.

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with capping things off. Because all of your answers had "cap" in them. Sometimes it's hard not to quote Finding Nemo.Then our music round was getting things started, since we were done capping things off. Just to be confusing.Our special format round was a 50/50 round on gingery things. The Doctor's never been a ginger, but that didn't come up in the round. By our fourth round, we reminisced about the halcyon first hundred days of our presidents pre-Trump. They accomplished so much stuff! And no nuclear war. :')The visual round was bad celebrity tattoos. That one did LOOK a little like

100 Days of Sob-i-tude
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to the blog! Tonight at Darcy’s, we reminded everyone that gingers do, indeed, have souls, we subtly shaded Trump and his ineffective first 100 days, and I was once again, through the quiz, recommended to listen to Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. Does anyone listen to it? Because I’ve had approximately 2346 people recommend it to me.   In the end, This Trivia Is Harder Than I Expected was victorious with a whopping 81 points. I guess it wasn’t THAT hard for them. Unlike someone I know....

Brian Brath

Quiz starts with some wonderful new old faces. It's always nice when you see people that you haven't seen in a while show their face! Thursday was one of those nights. Some regular faces at the bar came through to play quiz tonight. So I want to start by saying thanks for coming through and showing a QM some love. Lloyd missed out on the fun, but is excited to know Geeks will be here now! This quiz is all the way live.

You know that guy? Yea, that guy. I'm that guy. I'm that strange guy that's also funny, a bit dark, definitely dirty, and mostly nice. Mostly. Hailing from Los Angeles, but hardly the only place I call home, variety is a staple of my being. Most that know me would say I'm good for a favor and a caring ear, but not to be taken lightly. The Caribbean islander in me says that time is a fluid concept and running late is just a prelude to staying late. Some people have called me "That guy with the voice," but I'm more than just a voice. I'm also a semi-pretty face.

Quotes last night from Stephen Hawking's Dance Academy:   Steven: The action was explosive from the get go. The SHDA were off to a hot start but ultimately fell to Victorian Fart Garden.   Brooklyn: It requires you to have your smarts on tap.   Scott: Trivia was the highlight of my day. The hostess was absolutely spectacular. Lovely in every way. Would have appreciated more topics that I am personally familiar with.    I was so happy to see those guys again!

Better Late Than Whatever
AlisonRudd

Ahoy! What is the difference between a borough and neighborhood you asked, angrily, as you got the bonus question right... Well, actually you got the bonus question correct after I spelled out 90-percent of it. I made it to G-A-R-M-E-N before you figured out I was spelling "garment". At the point I should've spelled out Garmin, so you could find yourself a clue!!! Oh, boom, slam... I just GPS knocked you into 2008! So, you thought Brooklyn was a neighborhood, no big deal. Like every quaint local neighborhood with 2.5 million people in it, Brooklyn just feels like a family. Don't get me wrong I'm not blaming you for putting an incorrect answer down in a speed

It’s So Drafty!
Amondeuz

Are you ready for some PUB QUIZ??? Some Thursday night, Geeks Who Drink, live at the Black Lotus Brewing Co., PUB QUIZ??? What if I were to throw in live coverage of the NFL Draft? Still ready? I’m not entirely sure, but I think “yes” is the preferred answered here. That’s right. We saw the Bears give up picks just to move up one spot from 3rd to 2nd just so they could get the maybe 3rd best QB available who they don’t even expect to start for another year or two. We saw the

  I had a great time subbing in at 6 Bears and a Goat for Kevin this week! It was a heckuva drive, but I am glad I went. The staff was incredibly nice (Joanna, Elle, Mark, Laura and I forgot both of the cute guys names which is really unlike me, sorry you, two!!) so thanks you guys! Joanna made me a coffee from the Keurig. Awwww. The crowd was rowdy and amazing. Corrected me when necessary, and I appreciate that!! The mic died but hey I just YELLED REALLY LOUDLY. And the fade in from the songs is so annoying. I need to figure out if it’s being caused by my laptop/winamp or if the house has a fade in that they

Why don't they throw Mario-themed birthday parties for 29 year-olds?
Francis

From Corvallis to Albany, Francis the Substitute Quizmaster (what a boring children’s book that would be) continues his journeys through Linn County, filling in wherever he’s called!  This week’s venue-in-need was Southpaw’s Perfect Pizza and Sports Pup in Northern Albany.  Usual quizmaster Kyle was off (saving whales? exploring the Amazon? windsurfing with John Kerry?), so I had the privilege of stepping in.   A little bit about the venue: if you don’t have baseball games playing on flatscreens in all your bathrooms, then you are not as sportsy as this sports pub.  The pizza was great too: crispy thin crust that managed to

Your Quizmaster is wicked sick, yo!
Major Tom

You've probably noticed that this Blog is a bit late. Here's the reason for that: I have been pretty sick this week. You probably didn't notice that at Quiz last night, because I'm so damn professional, but I felt like crap last night. It seems like the Black Death or whatever has been getting around quite a bit lately. Last week, I went to see my friends in Killswitch Engage play a concert in Phoenix. Half of the band was sick. I hung out with them a bit, and then I came home to teach my germ collections known as high school kids all week. A ton of them have been sick lately. From one source or another, I picked up some horrible illness. I did take one day off this week from the teaching

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Hooray for promotions, moving, and other things that determine progress. It's good to have conversations on people getting to better places, and helping others see that for themselves as well.   Yay things :)   We had a fun time over at Celtic Club as three teams joined up for rivalries, internet fame... And in reality free drinks. We covered rounds on things such as songs with an air of finality, a video round showing some interesting job interviews, and of course no night would be complete without our Random Knowledge round.   After we made it through all eight, here's how the statistical dust settled:

The Final Countdown
Nate Fincher

That’s it! Less than one week away we’ll be doing our first Star Wars themed quiz, right here at Shoryuken League. Will you Let The Wookiee Win, or will you walk out of there with cold hard cash? You’ve still got enough time to watch all the material again if you need to brush up. Our questions will cover the five, good theatrical Star Wars films and (pretty much) only those movies. That means you can expect a healthy dose of Episodes IV through VII and Rogue One and just a smattering of Extended Universe references. Since we’ve got our extra special trivia next week, we had a nice classic (and laid back) quiz, with no extra surprises…except the amount

I'm Losing It
PFS

Today was sonnet day in my middle school class and when it’s sonnet day you can pretty much be sure that it’s a day filled with complaints and exclamations of how little they want to do or think they can “do poetry”, as it was so eloquently put.  To ensure the masses that poetry is good and meaningful and helpful in our society and therefore important to them I offered to do today’s task with them...proof that it was possible.  Today was write a Shakespearean style sonnet, but not even a fully Shakespearean one though, I saved them and myself the hassle of iambic pentameter, so all it had to be was ababcdcdefefgg and 10

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

At least the Bachelorette won't get canceled. Or is that scripted ?
Johnna

I wasn't totally aware of the Writer's Strike until the visual round cued me in last night and now I'm a bit panicked. Do you remember the last one? SNL didn't air for months. Reality tv shows became king (...like The Celebrity Apprentice). Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was delayed. The Office and 30 Rock seasons were cut short. I mean, the comedy genius we missed out on! Let's give these people whatever they want, amirite? We need you, writers. Now more than ever. While you contemplate what you can do to keep the writers happy, let's go over the events of last night. We had 10 teams competing for the win and the champion that emerged was Public Teat.
