Yay, another Thursday and another night at quiz! Thanks to everyone for coming out tonight during these last few days of August. And of course, tonight we celebrated my birthday too. Try as y'all might, I was able to coherently finish quiz. Better luck on my next birthday, all you teams that kept sending me shots of whisky. The joke's on you! Even bad whisky is still good. It's whisky.   Tonight's winner was An Album Cover (or

Nah, Still Not A Big Oasis Fan
Michael Domangue

Did you know that Hulu has every episode of Quantum Leap available? I flirted with binge watching the show on Netflix when it became apparent that they were missing episodes. But now that Hulu has the whole shebang, nothing is going to stop me from finding out if the next leap is the leap home.   I mention this for two reasons. One, I have no desire to do much with my life besides binge watch and host pub quiz. And two, Quantum Leap was one of the answers to a round seven that I love deeply with all of my heart. The best show intros you see are the ones in which the entire concept of the show is spelled out with a lengthy voiceover and this week's Round Seven was a tribute

It was a blast from the past as Ramrod made their debut after a brief(loooong) hiatus. It was great seeing them return, albeit a little(lot) rusty. We had some great teams show up in battle for the weekly right to claim the Top Geek spot, but a pretty tough night kept scores at an all-time low. Regular teams like Bandersnatch, Ramrod, and Advanced Tactical Hipster couldn't keep up with some of the stiff competition.  We somehow ended up with a 3 way tie for second place, as None for Gretchen Weiners, I wish this microphone was a penis, and Master Debaters had

Fuckmaster Emeritus

Man, she was a hoot last night. A regular hootenanny: well, it's chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny. A good time. One for the ages. It rained earlier, so it was good and hot and humid and fecund and just dripping with nerdly nerdliness, like a jungle made almost entirely of funk. A funk jungle. So! We had ourselves a whole lot of newbies who stuck with it for the night and yukked it up and stuff, and our leaderboard was kind of all over the place as a result: crazy jokers and upsy-downsiness and just straight-up nerd mayhem. In the end, only one of our McCabe's newbies placed, River are Burning, with the ol' boring

It's a Wonderful Quiz
Thomas

The cooling winds of autumn are blowing through Scottsville this week. And with it they brought another great crowd in for our weekly Pub Quiz at the brewery. It was a night for the regulars, which was a change from all that hoopla with the marriage proposal last week (just kidding! That was amazing!). And speaking of regulars, Summer Squashed has proven themselves to be some serious up-and-comers, cleaning up in the last few quizzes. Team Grayson put up another good night, but just couldn't quite hang on and Winsome Beer for Dan, Blue Buckets, and Seven Islands

StephenDeLiberis

I will say this about the teams that come to Nighthawk Brewery, They need to turn off the fucking tv and read more books!!  The teams KICKED ass this week in the round where they had to name the TV show off the voice over intro.  The worse score, from the well read team, was 4 points with the next lowest  being 6.  I can't throw too many stones in my glass house though as.....I kind of did alright on that round too. WELL!! Freaking Cheerio Tam Tam has now won 4 weeks in a row.  CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE TAKE THEM DOWN?!?!?  And it's not like there isn't tuff competition either.  THEIR REIGN HAS TO END!.....right?!?! 7

Un-American Geeks Descend Upon Santa Fe
Mark

An entire round on Melissa’s & McCarthyism is a brilliant way to separate the idiots from the geniuses. Although many of you didn’t know the name of Melissa Etheridge’s biggest hit song, “Come To My Window” (where were you guys in 1994?), you did excellent at identifying our feuding musical artists in Round 2. Perhaps what would’ve been even more fun, is to play audio clips of what the battling musicians actually said about another. Who can forget Elton John eloquently calling Madonna a “fairground stripper”?    We had a contest for best team name and the winner was Third Nipple...Or Skin Tag?. They

Before MacFarlane, Rogen, And Green, There Was Just... SETH
Chris

One of the craziest things about the bible to me is how long people used to live. If you follow the good book literally (screw you, dinosaurs... amirite?!) Methuselah lived to be 969 and is the oldest dude ever in the bible, which is pretty much his only claim to fame, good-book speaking. I knew that little oddball factoid cuz I used to be into sharkin guys at my Sunday school with bible knowledge. OK, so 1) that must have SUCKED since way back when there was literally nothing to do. No Netflix, no Game Of Thrones, shit not even any good books to read, just the nearness of God to entertain you, and his

Hoo boy, some of those questions about atoms brought me back. I’ve spent so much of my life sitting in classrooms listening to explanations of what electrons are, and, specifically, where electrons are. They are not, as represented in the Plum Pudding model, scattered around inside the atom like raisins. They are… well, sort of everywhere at once and best represented by energy states rather than physical locations and it’s

First of all: ALL HAIL ANYA!!!! She is the latest to join our ranks of QuizMasters in Southern California….and as we all experienced first hand, she’s pretty great at it. I’d feel threatened for my job, but lucky for me she lives on the other side of the 10 (LA’s version of the Mason-Dixon Line that separates the North from the South….only in this case, the South doesn’t suck).

a music geek - used to be a DJ at my college radio station

a concert geek - live music rocks! (pun intended)

a live theatre geek - it's just a better value than the going to the cinema at this point

a musical theatre geek -more than an straight man rightfully should be

a political geek - it's a much better bloodsport than the MMA

a pop culture geek - grew up as a latch-key child, so TV was my babysitter

27 Teams Hate Jane Lynch
Chris

This weeks quiz featured a staggering 27 teams who came out to play, making this my biggest quiz ever. I didn't even have my trusty score keeper support this week, so it was a hell of a ride. I hope you all had as much fun as I did, and I hope I didn't test your patience too much. We had a lot of really touch questions, and a lot of really funny answers. One team decided not to put any answers down for one round and just wrote "Seriously?" This gave me a chuckle, but don't worry, most teams also hated Jane Lynch. At the end of the night we had a bunch of temas come really close to winning, but per usual my only Rumble in the Pub team ended up taking first place. That is team Nothing

Some people are pot of coffee by day bottle of wine by night type of people, times that by 3 and you've got me. Hey I'm Chris, part time Quiz Master who should never have been trusted with a microphone. 

In college I started my own pub quiz for college students because there was nothing else for them to do on a Tuesday night. 5 Years later I'm happy to return to hosting.

I live out in Acton, MA now with a silly dog named Bagel, and an asshole of a parrot named Jax. Just kidding, Jax is cool, he has the kind of integrity that the mere improbable lacks.  

I can never seem to get the hang of Thursdays. In my free time I read a lot, ride motorcycles, go running, and plot ways to become batman. I'm also big into board games and card games. 

Someday I hope that humanity will invent a printer that doesn't beg to be dragged out to an empty field and beaten to bits. We can only dream.

Are you ready for some football? Too bad. You get quiz.
Greg

Well, well, well...after four months (almost) without experiencing the sweet rush of hosting a night of GWD, it was time to reacquaint myself with the regulars on Lee Road. Round 1 was a nice reintroduction to the art of getting right answers early and often for most of the teams. Basically, if you didn't score 8 in this round, you were out of contention already. So, at this point, Sea Slug, Team BadankaDAMN, Dexter is our Dog, Hoboerotica, and Lau and Laura were done. Round 2 separated the podium places from the rest of the field. All of the top 3 jokered this round. Those who didn't were left to wonder what might have been. OK, maybe

Hey. I'm Greg, and I'm the former QM at Canton's Buzzbin on Wednesday nights. This is my first year doing the QM gig, but when I'm not running the quiz for that crowd, I disrupt the educational establishment by running quiz tournaments for middle and high school students around Ohio.

I live near Akron, and my wife and two stepdaughters are happy to let me out once a week if only to avoid talking to me about quiz-related things during that time. Outside of quiz, I like watching football -- all codes of it, from high school to Australian Rules, but to hell with the NFL -- and any other competitive activity that doesn't involve more than moderate physical activity. Board games and darts fit well into that category.

Quinoa Backache

That is what my computer wrote when it wrote the team name Quinoa Bukakke (I hope that’s the correct spelling, I normally would Google to check but… ).   Someone else said that a backache is what you get from a bukakke, I thought it was like carpal tunnel.  I did have some very high scores in the music round for the bands that a) knew who Mr. Bungle was or 2) that ICP made a song dissing Eminem.  It also helped to know a few other things but those were the ones that set you apart.  Something

THE DANCE-OFF IS OFF
LukeDarby

The best way to buy my love is through clever team names, and it's scientifically proven in my own peer-reviewed studies that the cleverest team names all involve either Pokemon or drag queens. Your goal should be to hit a sweet spot between the two. Now, this isn't the REASON that Squirtle Squad won, but it certainly didn't hurt either. It came down to sudden death between them and the Wet Bandits, and although there was some borderline violent cheering for a dance-off, rules are rules and questions about Ruth Badass Ginsburg are also important. What we learned: Xena: Warrior Princess needs a reboot. As

Hey DJ.
Twilight Sparkle

It was a good day yesterday. The sun was shining and it wasn't over 100 degrees. I count that as a Houston Win. Tonight we had 6 teams fight to the figurative death to win some free beer. As I approach my 1 year mark as a Quizmaster, I have learned people will do a lot of things to get free booze.   People also ask you to do weird things when they see you with a mic. Beyond the typical "Hey DJ, play this song" stuff, my favorite request was this: The House used to have a sand volleyball court in the parking lot. Every Thursday, these two teams would play there and then come in for drinks after. They tended to stay outside since they were sweaty and gross, but every now

Quiz from an Irish Restaurant

Boy, when I came into Johnny O'Hagan's and saw it packed shoulder-to-shoulder with bepoloshirted fellows and gals dressed up for date night, I almost had a heart attack-ack-ack-ack. Then an Angry Young Man informed me that a few doors down, Wrigley Field was hosting the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel. And every person in that bar was attending the concert. Luckily, I ain't too proud, so I skulked around near the door and spotted my regular quizzers as they came in, letting them know that we'd be starting closer to 8:20 to let the Bill Joel fans clear out. And lucky for me, seven teams stuck it out through the madness. I guess the night was still young. Let's just say... I went to exremes. Our
