*Insert Innuendo Here*
Tenacious E

My best friend is visiting from Georgia tonight. I always get so excited when I get to show people what “trivia” should actually be. We spent the day at Elitch’s but luckily I didn’t lose my voice - even though I screamed at every coaster. I am so afraid of heights but I did it. I even rode the upside-down ones. Holy shit. We had a great quiz tonight. We kind of fell off at rounds 4 and 5 but gathered steam again after that. Here are our scores:   1st- Make America Plagiarize Again 2nd- Don’t Worry We’ll Fix Our Score In Post 3rd-

What the Flak!?
RobinRyan

Hey! A 50/50 round!  It's kind of a gimme, but really not.  Luckily nobody really flaked it up.  It would have been way harder if it was identify the quote from Melania or Michelle.  I was proud of myself for coming up with that joke during quiz so I had to use it again in the blog. So everyone knows how I flak up my words from time to time.  I challenge you to read 128 questions (two quizzes per weeks) without any mistakes.  Especially since I don't write the questions, so many of them are on topics I have literally no clues about.  Luckily many times the editors realize that we aren't perfect and help us out with pronunciation.  Tonight

Pick Flick!
Fabrian

I keep telling myself it could get hotter and I know it could, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck right now. Oh my God, does it suck right now. I’m thinking of putting cookies in my car one of these days and see what happens. I think they would cook, but would they be crispy? Probably not, slow cooked cookies seems weird when you consider a what slow cooked meat is like. Enough about cookies and meat- we had a fabulous night at Harpo’s. Many of you seemed to have a great time yourselves, which is really the point. Me having a good time is just nice, but then again I always have a good time.

Thanks, That Was Fun
Joey Joe Joe Jr. Shabadoo

Well that was a Helluva crowd we had last night. 17 teams. 17 teams.  SEVENTEEN TEAMS! Did you know we had 17 teams last night? That’s, officially, the largest number we’ve ever had at Geeks (I can’t confirm that - I’m too lazy to go back through three years of quizzes to double check. Let’s just say it is). I’m so glad Maura was there to help score. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her. But 17 teams is nuts. Did you all come out just because it was my last night?  Or did

This week’s winners: Trump University Alumni, forever debunking those nasty rumors about that institution being a scam.   Best team name of the week: Easily A Team Named Outback, because there’s no richer form of parody than that of team names specific to the Blue Star.   Best/worst guess of the week: I was tempted to give the team that guessed “Titan AE” instead of “Remember the Titans” a point just for presumably contributing to the box office gross of that underrated gem.   Homework from this week’s

It's a million degrees outside, but it was COLD AS ICE inside Ainsworth as we got ready with BRAND NEW SCORECARDS for another battle for the prize at the GWD Pubquiz. The back table saw The Divas (who for one round changed their names to the Dirty Dirtys). At the bar we had Jar Jar Drinks. And right up front in their usual seats we had Three's a Crowd. Let the games begin! Jar Jar Drinks ran away with the competition all night, with a stunning display in the 2nd round, using their joker to full advantage. The fight was for second place as The Divas and Three's A Crowd were neck and neck all night long.

Jim K

Some tough rounds tonight at the L.A. Fire Proof Door but our teams struggled through.  Once again our winner was WE GOT SCREWED with ARE YOU DONE WITH THAT? a close 2nd.  THAT ONE TEAM edged out DYNAMIC DUO for 3rd and DOOR WHORES once again had to stop playing to make sure that the rest of us were served with the finest in food and drink. We had a few players that were unfamiliar with BDSM (or so they claim) so after a brief description and several more drinks we had some very interesting answers for BDSM terms:  Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hamlet, The Tooth Fairy and Reindeer

...And I've Rocked Them All
DeweyNelson

Jon Bon Jovi, Asia, Foreigner and Billy Idol... There was a whole mess of '80s music in the quiz tonight, and it was great! Nothing makes a many happier than being brought back to his youth.  Or, if you were a baby in the '80s - your super youth! A man's past is more important than his future.  I don't know if that's true or only true to the man. Is it only because the has been seen that a man knows it's value. The past is time's version of the bird in the hand.  Do we all underestimate the value of our bushy future birds? I, myself, do know wish to be considered a future bush bird begotter.  And something tells me, I never will be.

I started my new job this week- it is everything a scientist could imagine!

I never really thought my degree(s) would get me anywhere, but this is a damn good start.   Tomorrow Caleb kicks off Treff's tomorrow night and he's gonna be the best! I'm so excited to see him do all these badass things and play along. Oh, and I finally get to meet Patrick, with whom I've exchanged a zillion e-mails. Swell guy.

Dinosaurs!
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

Dinosaurs! Dinosaurs are just awesome. Everybody goes through a dinosaur phase as a child, because of course children are going to get fascinated by gigantic scaly creatures that could crush you like an ant. What's not to like about the beasts that roamed Earth during the Mesozoic? You've got really tiny dinosaurs (Compsognathus), really huge dinosaurs (Diplodocus), awesome looking dinosaurs (Parasaurolophus), scary as hell dinosaurs (Spinosaurus), and so much more. I would eat up any books I could lay my hands on as a child that had anything to do with dinosaurs. This continued long past the time when it was socially acceptable to be a nerd about dinosaurs, and even into college I read a

Mangly Movie Titles, or Why Doesn't Anyone Love James Brown?
Troy

Good God. A clean, but violent, match tonight. A lot of teams got some tricky 80s hair band math questions right, we all had fun figuring out what Prince farted on, and a lot of us admit Tracy Flick and Hilary Clinton are pretty much the same person. After some protracted booing between me and Tie Fighters, they eventually won, even though they had no idea about one of the monuments. They still mostly suck at music, but still know how to win. And Then There Were Three narrowly gained second place, but I Love Lamp sneaked it away from them with a strong finish. The Fjords in the Bunghole won for funniest name, which

Another Monday night at 49th State Brewing Company and another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, AND another first for me as QM…two teams breaking the 90 point threshold! Playing almost perfectly all night long, Mollusk Mary brought home first place with a lofty 94 points, with Drunks Who Geek finishing only one point behind in second place with 93 points. Drunks led going in to round seven, but lost a point to Mollusk in rounds seven and eight to come up just a bit short. Finishing a distant, but respectable with 84 points, third was the power twosome We’re Not Sure, who may have been a third 90 point team if they had a third

Michelle Obadmamajamma
Patrique

Imagine a Trump Free Quiz!   We almost had it, folks! Round 1 was decidedly a Trump-free round on Current events. The only drumpf-reference was the actual reference to say it was free of him.   While we quizzed, Michelle Obama apparently pwned at the DNC. Her speech about her children had me very much inspired. So come on folks, do the damn thing!   Other Trump-free rounds we had last night included a 7 song F U music round, and a round on Cities and States! That one went to show me that most of you don't know a darn thing about Idaho.    We also had rounds on Movie Titles, Bartenders, and ump things!   In

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.

I Kick Out Jams On A Daily Basis
Cousin Chet

Kick out the Jams by MC5 is one of the greatest early punk songs. And yes, it counts as a punk song. Ask anybody. Well, most anybody. But yeah, it’s a punk song. And it fucking rocks. Especially the live version that got them in so much trouble. There was a live version that started with Wayne Kramer screaming “Kick out the jams, motherfuckers!” And this was in 1967. The record labels were not having that, believe you me. But they got it released and it was amazing. And thus the punk movement was born. I’m deeply disturbed by something right now. And that thing is Ghostbusters. No, don’t go directly to the comments section and yell at me. You see, we had
