SO MANY TEAMS!!!
Chris

Hey thanks to everyone for coming out last night! You coulda been in line outside of a Target waiting for Star Wars toys, BUT YOU WENT WITH US! Speaking of, hey good luck everyone on getting that BB-8 remote control droid! I don't wanna brag, but I brought a 24 team night in on time all by my lonesome. No one else maybe cares, but I promise that it's a relatively big deal. Now I'm at home sick (drank only the hottest of toddies last night during the quiz but to no avail, sadly) watching season 5 of Community from the beginning because I've earned it goddamn it. Folks lionize the first three seasons, and rightfully so, but season 5 holds up for real. Abed doin Nic Cage is gonna be the peak

Round 1: Watching former athletes like David Feherty attempt humor is like a car wreck. Not watching a car wreck from afar, mind you, more like actually being in a life-threatening, extremely painful automobile accident where you begin to long for death’s sweet embrace. Round 2: I WAS RIGHT AFTER ALL! Tal Bachman is indeed the son of Guess Who/Bachman Turner Overdrive co-founder Randy Bachman. And then Avril

In 1992, a crack-addicted quizmaster one-man commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime he didn't commit. This man promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Anchorage, Alaska underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a quizmaster of fortune.

Hey there Iron Bear!   During tonight’s round 2, I made a casual joke about how the abundance of shitty early-2000’s pop-punk would have made my little sister happy, and that if any team managed a perfect 16 points in that round, I would give them my sister’s number, because they were clearly meant to be friends. Well, much to my surprise, Iron Bear regulars Gays of Thunder actually did pull off a perfect score in that round! I never did give out my sister’s number, but if you want it, guys, you might hit it off with her! Just be warned, she does live on a mountain in Colorado with her fella, and they’re both

Labors and Days
Nicknames are Hard

This day in history is full with neat patent stuff. In 1888, George Eastman was issued a landmark U.S. patent No. 388,850 for his box camera. On the same date, he registered the trademark name: Kodak. The Eastman Kodak company was formed 24 Apr 1888. This design was the first Kodak mass-produced camera, and brought photography to the mass market. As described in its advertising, the operation was simple: "Pull the String, Turn the Key, Press the Button." Now anyone could take pictures family, events, indoor and outdoor scenes, and vacations, without needing special skills. Only 22-ounces in weight, it required no tripod or table for support. It used a fixed-focus lens which was still

I mean honestly, the place is named after a woman who was so ugly if you looked at her you'd be turned to stone. Does that sound like the type of place you'd go to to find some side action? Also apparently my quiz goes have dirty minds because Suck me suck me eat me raw is about oysters you guys.  Anyways, Wednesdays quiz taught us some really fun things, like Volkswagen's slogan probably should be "Drivers Wasted" and that a barrel really is a unit of measurement. Yes I know I told you all it wasn't but then I was told that I was standing in a brewery and that they brewed beers by the barrel. Also its 42 gallons of oil to a barrel as well. Both

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.

There's an opposite side to "Those who can't do, teach."

That opposite side is, "Those who can do so well that they ruin it for everybody else by making them feel like there's no point in playing."

That's the way I am with quiz games.  I always get accused of cheating, and I always win the free drinks.

So, my new calling in life is to shepherd your weak, jiggly brains into the harsh light of knowledge - to every week pit the strong against the week, strengthening the herd, and ultimately deciding who is only a little bit not-as-smart-as-I-am.

That is not something you should ever say to a cop. Because they dont have to read those verbatim. Just hit the main points. Also if you ask someone if they're a cop, lets say some new guy you're buying the drugs from, and he says no im not a cop, that is not a green light to buy drugs. Cops dont have to tell you they are cops. Thats all Hollywood. We actually send police undercover sometimes. How would that be possible with that super stupid rule. Come on guys. You should know better.  So last night I made a joke about abortion AND suicide. None of you left. I'm thankful for that. Not only because those are controversial subjects, but also they weren't even like super

Last night my darling quizzers at Johnny O'Hagan's faced a particularly difficult quiz. None of our quizzes should be a breeze, of course, but this one really left some heads spinning.  Round 2 especially was a strong get for some of our teams composed entirely of Millennials, but other teams found themselves floundering. I don't have all of my numbers in front of me, but I have to speculate that it was among the generally lowest-scoring music rounds I've administered. I, however, am in that sweet age spot, so I think I'm going to make a work playlist inspired by last night's R2.  Despite that scuffle, and a similarly brutal Round

I wish I could make every song in my iTunes sound like an 8-bit Nintendo theme. Round 7 “Nintendo-ized” theme songs from favorite animated TV shows like Inspector Gadget, Captain Planet, and My Little Pony. SImply epic. In hindsight, I should’ve organized a Super Mario Bros party after the quiz, cause all I wanted to do was revisit my youth and rescue a snotty princess while shooting fireballs and smashing Goombas!  Ah well...   Apparently questions on top American military leaders is completely lost on Geeks in Santa Fe.

A new batch of fresh faces arrived, only to have their pub quiz dreams killed by regulars, who took all 3 prize positions. Shout out to Dave (whose name is not Dan) for coming in 4th place as a solo artist. Good job! You ALMOST beat those teams of many players. Next week's game will start on time and we will be all business... going quickly and efficiently so we conclude before the beginning of Pats vs Steelers. Ugh, which criminals do you root for in that game?  Haley Joel Osment got fat.

So we ended up with 18 teams last night! Holy crap! The good news is that you could all hear me perfectly, right? Haha ok maybe not.

Well, one of you guys got me sick. I'm kidding, of course. Actually, it was probably one of my filthy little seventh graders that got me sick. I'm pretty unhappy about that. I almost never call in sick to work, but I especially don't like calling in this early in the school year. It's a paranoia that if I use my sick days early, then I won't have any if I need them later in the year. Like all of a sudden this year I'll contract ebola or something in April. So, I started feeling terrible and took Tuesday off. Not wanting to blow any more sick days, I went in to work with a sore throat and sneezing up stuff that you don't want me to describe.  I came home, and found that my air conditioner

Good morning, quizzers! Quizmaster Hobert here, glad to be back with you after my week off. What did I do while I was away from the Pumping Company? Well, I guess I did nothing.
