Wait- is roid rage not from hemorrhoids??
Resident Egon

Cedar Springs was supposed to be a new start – a way to forget about my past. A way to forget about Sarah. I decided to move there a year after her disappearance. By that point, I had practically given up all hope of seeing her again outside of our wedding photos. I didn’t have a single idea what happened to her – whether she was kidnapped or finally just got sick of me and left – but I wasn’t angry. Hell, I wasn’t even sad. I was just… numb. So I picked up the pieces of my shattered life and moved far away from everything I once knew. It wasn’t hard. With my family long gone and friends slowly but surely distancing themselves,

Another Tie!
Alex Schmidt

Hello Quizzers,   So we have yet another tie. Maybe it's because everyone loves the way I format our tie breakers or just cause we have some really smart people we had yet another tie for the first place finishers!   So another Tuesday was upon us here in El Dorado Hills at Hop House and another night of super fun. We had so many people last week that we ran out of score sheets. Thankfully I have a background in Graphic Design and was able to make new sheets for tonight. And I decided to use Heath Ledger from the Dark Knight to make our Joker scary.   Every week we have huge crowds and this week was no different with 12 teams

Put Your Dome In My Teapot   A historical “Missed Connections,” round was all the rage tonight. Personal ad’s for old times historical figures are sure to make everyone laugh. The absurdity, the clumsy innuendo, what around indeed.  Jay’s here, seemed to appreciate it more than most. they got a perfect score on that round and took second place overall, thanks for showing up, Jay.   Just The Funky Bunch, took first place tonight, they really really know their music, even when the lyrics and vocalists are amateur youtube people.

Obama Thinks His Spotify List Straight Fire
OwenBallard

Obama might think his Spotify playlist is straight fire, but most of our teams at trivia would disagree. Urban Dictionary defines Straight Fire as, “when referring to an object, place, or event, straight fire means that it’s top notch, better than the rest, or hella wet”. I realize that many people might also need me to explain hella wet. Hella wet was explained to me by some high school kids in Austin Texas where I used to be a substitute teacher and they told me that it means “cool” or “good”. We had a fantastic time at SCOTTY’S PUB last night. Although there were not as many teams as the past few Tuesdays, we did

Back In My Day…
CLAY-TON, The Imposter

…this place was a field, owned by the prison!   Yes, dear Quizzers, once upon a time this whole area was farmland owned by the state prison. Eventually this land was sold in differing increments to developers. New Territory was built on some of this land back in the ‘90s, with TelFair following suit about a decade earlier.   I mention this because I’m native to this area. I remember when the intersection of 90 and Highway 6 was absolutely nothing, save for Hull Airport (as it was known at the time). Wal-Mart rolled in and opened its doors in the Spring of ’01, which sparked much further development of the area. I still recall

I Guess English Is a Foreign Language
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Not that I’m any mood to argue the point, but you guys are right. There ARE 900,000+ people in this country who speak English in their homes. So I guess we COULD have accepted it as an acceptable answer in this evening’s speed round. But by that logic, then any question I ask has a smartass answer that would be equally acceptable. For instance, if I were to ask you, “Who wrote and directed the film The Room?” you could argue that both a) Tommy Wieseau and b) NOT Stephen Spielberg are answers to that question. And while that may not go against the letter of the law, it certainly goes against the spirit of it. The Freshmaker

All Day Breakfast at McDonald's? I'm Lovin It!

Maybe it’s that I recently had a birthday, or maybe it’s just that it’s a natural progression of the aging process regardless of whether or not a milestone recently incremented. But lately, I find myself feeling more and more justified in my desired to yell at young’uns to get off my lawn. I want to tell them all about how in my day, things were different. But frankfurters didn’t cost a nickel – they cost $1.50, the same price they still do at Costco. In fact, now they come with a bottomless fountain soda instead of a can of Coke product. We didn’t walk uphill to and from school in the snow. But things were different. For one, the summer I

Nuclear penguins and other regular stuff
TheBeastMother

Alright, you apes, it was another Monday spent basking in the fun times and tacobistrosity of Marg's Taco Bistro. First place went to the Geri Hat Tricks, which you might think is a pun (geriatric, get it?) but actually denotes the fact that every single person on the team is named Geri, all of whom just arrived from a hockey game in which each of them scored three goals. Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. The music round brought up a bit of nostalgia when we had that Gin Blossoms song. The band's music was kind of bland, but their jangly tunes evoke fond memories for folks who grew up watching MTV in the mid-'90s. But their generally inoffensive musical stylings mask a story

Well I certainly feared for my life tonight.   I knew you guys would be upset when I told you that, for the time being, there would be no video rounds.  I know, I know!  You’re all very fond of the video rounds.  Unfortunately there is nothing to be done at this time.  We’ll just have to wait for the technical things to be fixed.     But that was just the start.  Little did I know how poorly everyone would react to the Historical Missed Connections round.  Not only are people not all that familiar

Jackie Chan is a Golden God
Patrique

Here it is folks:   Jackie Chan has climbed to the second spot in Forbes' Highest Paid Actors List after the magazine’s annual who’s who of wealthy thespians expanded to include those working outside the US movie industry. With earnings of $50 million (£32,000,000) last year alone, Chan is second only to Robert Downey

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.

Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.

He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit. 

Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.
RobinRyan

Buffalo is not the same as Bison.  The sentence Bison bison Bison bison bison bison Bison bison is just ludacris.  There are no buffalo native to the US.  The animal that humans almost drove to extinction is the Bison.  In fact their genus and species, is Bison bison.  How much more bison can you get? And speaking of other animals that the general public confuses and just gets wrong.  There are no possums native to the United States either.  We have Opossums, and yes, you say the 'O.'  Possums live in Australia and New Zealand and they are very different animals. Black panther?  Not a real thing.  It's either

Well friends, it's September and lucky for us our quiz is on a Tuesday night. I say that because Blake Street is about to get nuts for football and there should be zero Tuesday night conflicts! Love it!   In case you don't know, I also work at the Blake Street Tavern as an Expo/Host/Whatever they need and I spent the majority of my shift before switching to quizmastering making sure all of the sound was in tip top shape and it was! Quiz sounded great and with my new haircut it looked great too!   The highlight of the quiz for me, and probably everyone else, was listening to the always delightful clip from Dumb and Dumber where C Bass

I'm Blake Ritchen and I became a Quiz Master for the power. Nowhere else in my life can I tell people not to fuck with me so calmly or without chance of altercation. As a substitute teacher I'm supposed to stay away from words like that, though from the number of elementary students who've told me I look like the guy from The Hangover I'm going to assume they've heard that and worse. The power is intoxicating. I get to choose what music you listen to, what prize to award for the email bonus question (from the prizes given to me to award), and in which inflection I will read each question. I also get to drink for free, meet new people, tell jokes, yada, yada, I'm boring myself.
I have spent more and and more time recently with my new best friend, Netflix. If you dropped your Netflix plan over their failed summer business plans you're nuts. Why don't you just move to western Pakistan because the IRS was a week late on your tax return? Seriously, it's amazing and has made me much happier than any real person in my life ever could. I've prepared for the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead, a life in menial jobs with The Office and Party Down, and there's a movie where nun's get totally naked. Get a friend Netflix for the holidays or a birthday, or just give them your password so you don't have to spend another eight dollars a month.
I teach, I quiz, I master, I bait fish hooks when I visit my grandfather in Minnesota, I read but have recently just been waiting for the movie to come out, and I've lived in Denver my whole life. I also work at a sports bar and basically have the job of changing channels for people, an easy enough job most days but it has made the target of many a crazed sports fan who is unwilling to turn his head at all to watch his game. Still, I love it, and like I said at the start, I like having the power.
