Until We Meet Again...
Mitchicus Mathematicus

We had an awesome night of quiz, and it was because of the people who came out to play. We had teams who played regularly, like Chooch and Fatmen + Lauren, as well as an old familiar face. Seriously, Brett, I haven't seen you at a quiz since 2 venues ago! It was great to see you resurrecting the team name of Fist Full of Bacon. Indeed, it was great to see all of you. If only my voice had shown up to this party. Quiz itself was a blast. We had a sudden lead change at the end, and a number of memorable moments in bad guesses and joke answers. In particular, I have to point out Life's a Mitch's round

Howdy, all. Mitch here. I'm an Arizona-grown U of A alum with a job teaching students that Math doesn't have to suck. I've been quizzing with friends for three years and have been loving it ever since. Now as a QM, I just need to work on the whole talking and blogging thing. 

I am a huge retro gamer. I should have won the Star Fox Weekend leather jacket as a kid, and I did win a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero. I'm sadly lacking in knowledge of all the "cool" games kids play these days, but I'm still down with the classics. I'm also a fan of bad movies and mozzarella cheesesticks. 

Other life accomplishments include being published in "Highlights" magazine, meeting Walter Jones the power ranger, beating Super Metroid in 80 minutes with 100% completion, and never going to Senior Prom.

Sweet, Sweet Rumble Points To The Victors!
JonGabso

Savvy quizzers know that when an avenue exists to possibly claim the altar of “greatest pub quiz team in the country”, you hit that avenue with sustained vigor. Bone-Thugs-N-Hermione know this, and they have had the pleasure of being the first Rumble entrants to visit one of my quizzes to vie for Rumble points, part of GWD’s annual nationwide contest awarding championship points to those teams who can win a bunch of quizzes at different bars on different nights. I can say it’s a dandy life to play all the pub quizzes you can, and now GWD is dearly rewarding those who do! If you agree, make sure you get your roving team a Rumble ID and get to rackin’

Knowing answers to silly questions is like, IN MY BLOOD MAAAAN.

You Should Really Check Out My Ringtone
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better ringtone than the one I have set up on my phone. But I can’t take all the credit. I stole it from Sterling Mallory Archer. And sweet Jeebus, is it catchy! So if you love catchy ringtones, or are simply a lover of mulatto butts, I recommend this tone for all your tone needs. But it wasn’t all black and white butts at tonight’s quiz! Tonight kicked off the latest edition of our Rumble in the Pub, in which one lucky team will win a fat $3,000 payday next month. Could it be you? If you build up enough

You Can Do It, Put Your Brain into It
AdamFedyski

  The title of this blog serves as a memorial to the song that Ice Cube never wrote. It could have been a school-age hit in the same way that “Conjunction Junction” captured the minds of my generation in grade school. Alas, Ice Cube’s version instead left us with such influential and groundbreaking lines as “You can try to smoke an ounce to this, While I pronounce this shit, Baby bounce them tits, Mama move them hips, Baby shake them cheeks, I got dick for days, You got ass for weeks”. So here’s pouring out a little Dimetapp for the educational song that never was. Tonight was the first Monday of Rumble in the Pub 2015

In Which I Talk About My Diet Plan... Oh No, What Have I Become?
Professor D

Again, a most excellent quiz at Abel’s North!   It’s not often that I feel like I can play both Stan Rogers AND Cascada in the same night, but today I was feeling it.   So there are several of the other quizmasters who started a bet online about who could lose a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time. Basically, I need to drop 4% of my body weight by the end of the month, which seems pretty do-able. That’s why tonight, I was drinking water.   I know. I was a little shocked, too. But this is what I do when I diet, I just cut out booze, flour, and sugar for a couple

the one with the banana flavored twinkies
Alley Cat

The great twinkie/pop tart debate struck again tonight. I, myself, am a huge s'mores pop tart fan. Never had a twinkie in my life. But what I learned tonight, is that I probably never will. As it turns out, the patrons of the Chesterfield are very familiar with the differences between Twinkies and Pop Tarts. One is obviously delicious and with a variety of tasty flavors and the other was recently taken off the shelves, never to see the light of day again. And apparently had an original banana flavored center. For anyone that knows me, bananas are my enemy. Banana intolerance over herrrrr! Several teams came out for the Rumble tonight.

Hello, my darlings!We've successfully finished another competitive pub quiz. This week our second and third place teams were only one point apart! And if you missed it, you missed a good time.Let's take a stroll through the thoughts that crossed my QM brain as we covered everything from Nazi leadership to Harry Potter.- Among the other "g" words covered in round 1, we discussed Hermann Goering's role as the head of the Luftwaffe. Our very helpful writers must have anticipated some of us have trouble pronouncing things because they provided me with this guide: "LOOFT-vah-fuh"It reminded me of the German foreign exchange student I knew in high school.

Nothin' says lovin' than when the heat index feels like an oven. I've spent a good deal in time as of late. A great deal of time specifically because of record temperatures.

Whales Are Not FIsh
Corrina Briggs

I may have given a patron a warning about heckling tonight, but after talking with him after the quiz I have to say that I am on his side. In Round 4: Schools and Fish, the first question asked who was swallowed by a giant fish in the Bible. There was some push-back from a certain someone about that question and I have to agree with him that a whale is not a fish; Google defines a whale as a large marine mammal, not a fish. However, one thing I had to ask the quiz-goer was "But was anybody swallowed by anything else in the Bible?" After that, the question was deemed fair. Our players tonight endured a very difficult round all about garlic (since we know everyone is an expert),

The One With Pop-Tarts, Twinkies, and Garlic!
Quizmaster Kris

Here's some fun facts about Garlic that I googled for y'all. 1. Garlic is one of the oldest cultivated crops. It was fed to the builders of the Great Pyramid in Egypt in the belief that it gave them strength.2. During the reign of Tutankhamun, you could buy a healthy slave for 15lb of garlic.3. There is only one mention of garlic in the King James Bible, in the Book of Numbers 11:5.4. Garlic is mentioned 21 times in Bram Stoker's Dracula but only four times in all of Shakespeare.5. Garlic attracts leeches. They take 14.9 seconds to attach to a hand covered with garlic but 44.9 seconds to suck blood from a clean one.6. The city

Welcome to August, folks, and the dwindling days of summer.  I spent the past weekend in beautiful, tropical South Carolina.  Hit the beach for hours on end, ate my fill of oysters and shrimp 'n grits and key lime pie, and got completely devoured by insects.  I forgot what it was like.  I can hardly remember the last time I had a mosquito bite.  They go away right?  Maybe I'll just WebMD it.  I hope it's not malaria.    Anyway, this week's quiz marked the second straight appearance of Chicago's You're the Inspiration in round two of the quiz.  Many of our regular teams caught on, though a few teams still mistakenly

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

Crispix is the Best Cereal
RESII

Looking for an amazing cereal? One that doesn’t rot your teeth or is too sucrose after three bites? Then look no further than the answer to number seven in our visual round, Crispix.   Crispix boasts that it has rice on one side and wheat on the other, but never has either tasted so good. Crispix is the simple breakfast of the gods. I always enjoyed Crispix as a kid, but it wasn’t until my palette changed later in life against sugary cereals that I realised it bested Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, and other competitors as my favourite.   I could eat bowl after bowl of Crispix and not get sick of it. I know this,

RIP Cecil. Quiz 8.3
JMC

Today, a majority (aka two) teams mourned the passing of Cecil the Lion. Surprisingly, (or not), some teams had trouble with other current events that were ALSO in the news this week (see: Hilary v Jeb, Bernie v Trump, a blue outcome both ways). If there was anything our teams were experts on were Harry Potter and knock off brands. What a time to be alive.  If there has been anything I've learned about our teams was their passionate stance on 2006 MASTERPIECE (or abomination) High School Musical. In return, I've shared my love of kale. especially in salad form.
