Hi, I'm [YOUR NAME HERE]
Geoffrey

Well, well, well. How are things on this side of the world?   I got to step into Alex’s shoes for the night, and except for the fact we wear different sizes, everything went according to plan...   Everyone started off really strongly with Round 1. But #bumfights #soblessed did break into an early lead. Porn Dash and My Couch

Keep Your Chins Up, Both Of 'Em
Rachelbot

Yes, today was a little gloomy. Do you feel it, along with seemingly everyone else in Seattle? Even without the gray in the skies, it was still hump day, and NOT Friday, and thereby slower and gloomier. So I thought I’d form a list of all the great things we do have, so that we don’t forget what’s really important: and by that I mean quizzing, of course.   Last night we had a combination team name, based off of two of our stalwart winning teams: Texas Three-Skins. No doubt, a combination of Screw You, We’re From Texas (our winners last night), and Crocodile Three Skins. It sounds horrible, and wrong,

So I’m going to start with an important announcement: you will be getting a new Geeks Who Drink host (a.k.a quiz master) at Frog & Firkin!  I didn’t announce it during quiz yesterday as I didn’t know how long it’d take to find a replacement, but apparently the GWD regional managers are speedy and amazing.  And you’ll be in great hands with the new host, Lindsey.    Why am I leaving?  Well, I’ve recently landed a promotion at my day job, which would have made my GWD regular gig a little too challenging to manage.  Awesome news for me, and awesome news for you if you didn’t like me as the GWD

Welcome to Greeks Who Think
Mark, International Man of Intrigue

Welcome to this evening’s edition of Greeks Who Think. We had six teams face the sleet and ice this evening to give us some incredibly special answers. Let’s go ahead and run those down! In round one, You’re Watching It Wrong, we played Memento with a bunch of movies. For number two, our answer was True Life: I Stutter. Number five was the documentary of Matthew McConaughey’s Life Story. Number seven was the documentary of Clint Eastwood’s Life Story. In round two, This Day in Overplay, we proved that America can make any song number one. Question four is proof of that, being Good Vibrations by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. In round three, The Bard of

Double Overtime
Christopher

Holy sweet mother of biscuits!  Unlike the Superb Owl of a few days ago, last night's quiz was a white knuckle affair indeed.  One tiebreaker was simply not enough to contain us.  But I'm getting ahead of myself... Amid the din of New Hampshire primaries, and booze-fueled nonsense, we convened at Holiday Club to discuss Shakespeare, Saved by the Bell, botulism, and meetings - among other things.  And boy howdy, do you you kids know your Saved by the Bell.  Sort of. As a fan of the old Bard I was thrilled about round 3 delighted to see that a fair few of you were familiar with Love's Labours Lost and Timon of Athens.  Although

Asia Is the Poor Man's Toto Who Is the Poor Man's REO Speedwagon Who Is the Poor Man's Journey
Magical Michael

  So many things to talk about this week:   The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50. One million people converged on downtown Denver to celebrate. We could talk about that.   Or maybe we should focus on the victories of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in the New Hampshire primary. No?   Perhaps something more important is in order; something like: Saved by the Bell. More directly, how someone is building an exact replica of "The Max" in the greater Chicago area. You don't want to talk about that either?   Well shit.   Congratulations

A Singaporean/American Transplant Walks in to a Valentines Day Quiz

Man, what a lucky girl am I. First, I get all of your lovely mugs to be my quiz Valentines. Second, I get you to eat all of the cookies that I can’t possibly eat myself. Third, how cool was it that I got TWO special guests. First, my buddy Andrew came out just to partake in our quiz and THEN Matt Swett (that’s right, I get your name right when you show up,) made a surprise appearance all the way from Singapore on his way to Hawaii. I’m sure he was in town primarily for the quiz. Absolutely. No questions asked.   And, I do declare, that he brought his A game to that quiz because his team, I Left it in the Trump of my Carson, scored a whopping

Jessie Spano Has Nobody To Blame But Herself For Her Career
Your Best Friend Rachel

So waaaaay back when Valley View Mall was only the 20th worst mall ever, the cast of Saved By The Bell came and did a thing there. My BFF and I waited in line for several hours to meet and greet the cast of SBTB and get their autographs and leer and junk. Just about everyone was there except for Lark, I think. My BFF and I were STOKED as we got closer and closer to the front of the line. On a (probably not OSHA compliant) stage, sat Zach, Kelly, fucking SCREECH, AC Slater, and... wait a second... Where the hell did Jessie go? Come to find out she was busy throwing a tantrum off to the side about something or other. Screech

The Four Hogmen of the Apocalypse Ride Again
Nick Danger

Oh those wacky themed rounds! This week’s quiz brought with it a nice breath of fresh air. We got to learn that either Shakespeare was a hack or the writers of Saved By the Bell don’t get the credit they deserve because it’s surprisingly hard to tell their bodies of work apart. Also, thanks to this quiz I really, like, REALLY really wanna see the guy who paints all those epic metal album covers whip up a piece depicting the four horsemen on motorcycles now. Shit would be sick.   Throughout most of the quiz the competition was FIERCE. I’ve never seen such a large percentage of teams use their joker on the first round. Fun fact: in a hilarious

We're Brothers!
Tom Servo!

Yes, a Round on Twins LAso one of the best team names I have ever gotten in quite some time. Let me begin with the Traditional... TEAM NAME(S) THAT I LOVED!! Anne Frank Hide and Seek Club. Crazy Quizzer Non-sense!! Where to begin???
[ ...more... ]

Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

Gawd I love that movie.

So what can I say about myself, Im an avid Transformers buff, Id say I have roughly 300+ pieces in my collection and it grows by the week.  I currently work full time for Star Trac Logistics which basically means I do the work of 3 guys while getting paid for 1 mans work.

I been Quizmaster since December of 2010ish and its only getting better, so when IM not scouring the toy shops or quizzing, or working for the Man.

So not only do i Love Transformers, I have and extensive collecting of 80's Movies as well as music.

I karaoke as much as possible and I don't want toot my own horn, but I got a set of pipes on me.

As far as my softer side, I do enjoy live theatre and try to perform as much as possible myself, whether it be in a musical or stage play, but I also try to do Improv.

Yes just like "Whose Line".

 

So let me sign off by saying this,

 I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Except this. 

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need...

And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need...

And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too.

I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
 The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair.

 And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.
[dog growls at him],
I don't need my dog.

The Primary Thing
Miles

I perpetrated a little injustice last night. It happens. A delegate from Little Giants had the correct answer to a bonus question written down, and they showed it to me, and I said to their faces that they were wrong. Do you know why? Because in addition to “Zack” they had written on their scratch paper “Dirty D.” Now in hindsight, it's pretty clear that they had merely begun to write “Dirty Dancing” down during a prior bonus question, but as they say, 'hindsight is dumb'. When I ask you for a character's name, and you show me Dirty D., I'm gonna think that you've got it into your head that Dirty D. was a dude on

Miles got a college degree in acting, and look at him now! He's deftly avoided the pitfalls of riches and fame, and is still keepin' it real. So very real.

You can see him many weekends playing in Fullerton's beloved Improv Shmimprov comedy group.

Periodically, you can catch his work as a long time member of Rogue Artists Ensemble, bringing you masks, and puppets, and god-only-knows what else.

He's also currently the merch guy for the groundbreaking art-rock outfit known as The Residents.

He does parties, bar mitzvahs, weddings and what-have-you. Just don't ask what he does at them.

The clue is a Double Dickel Rocks. The answer: a glass of Granacha from Castilla y Leon and a Kent Falls Juice Maker. On a  different note, I have to get something out of the way Godzingas. Godzingas, you knew this was coming. I love you Godzingas. I’m glad to see you all back as a team. You know I learned that you read the blog, but just to see your team name Godzingas, and when it shows up. Then you wouldn't let me take your Godzingas picture. Consider yourselves called out. No joke though, you guys are great, and I think you’re all nurses / doctors so, yeah, you’re better than me… Back to the blog. Hoo boy was Round

Remember That Time Zack Dressed In Drag To Try And Seduce Screech?
T-MO

Tuesday night is the time to be at Local Tap! You all impress me with your knowledge of Shakespeare and Saved By The Bell! Movie plots are a lot more interesting if you read them backwards. Apparently, the Supreme Geeks up at the Mothership feel that the auditory masterpiece "Africa" by Toto got a bit too much airplay back in 1983. I couldn't disagree more! Our runners-up were Last Week's Winners! And, they really were last week's winners!  Our champions were Danzig's Mesh Tanktop! I'll see you next week, my geeky friends! T-MO out!

You Da Real MVP
Bob with a J

Wait, no, I'm getting a note here that you're not, it's still Von Miller. Broncos are national champions, WOOOOOO! I'm guessing that Phantom Dabs and Newton's' First Law of Football are both Broncos fans, so not everyone was still at the parade downtown. The Lowry Beer Garden even got a visit from the drivers of Engine 18, though they didn't stay to quiz, what with the "sworn to protect citizens from deadly fires" and all. I guess it's a good excuse. But Denver fans can't

Bob has been playing Geeks Who Drink pub quizzes since 2010, and always thought quizmastering looked easy. He is in for a rude awakening.

Bob also once ripped an unopened can of coke in half with his bare hands. He would just like you to know that, in case Rule #2 comes into play.

That Old, Familiar Feeling
Genghis Rebhahn

 Ahh, the familiar smells of spilled beer, angst, and road salt. How I missed this. Bryan here, stepping in for the infinitely more intelligent Kelsey, who decided to head on down to Florida for vacation during our mini-blizzard! How's about you don't mind the extra 190lbs. suitcase that mysteriously showed up with your luggage and allegedly made noises when you kicked it? Some of us heathens want a vacation too, you know! Regardless, last night was a welcome return to the stage, with love and loss, gin and tonic, and the occasional taco.

Born and raised in the outskirts of the Armpit of the Midwest, otherwise known as Racine (or Raycilla, if you're hardcore), I found myself isolated from the depravity of city life.

That's not to say that I was sheltered: 

As the school nerd, I found myself the butt of many jokes. No matter, I was raised by Anti-Dad, the most negative superhero on the planet. Where there is hope, he would crush it. Where self-esteem reared it's shiny head, he would be there to kick it in the testicles. I'm practically an insult Navy SEAL.

Years upon years of cultivating caustic wit and enough Snapple facts to keep that company running for centuries, I found myself with nothing but a college education, a permanent five o'clock shadow, and the voice of a radio announcer.

Sounds like the perfect recipe for a Quizmaster.
