I'd See That Show
BenGriep

I entered Big Daddy's last night just as the USWNT scored their first goal and the place erupted.  It was packed, but I waited until the US put a nail in Germany with that second goal to set up for the quiz.  I was not about to interrupt these soccer fans, but luckily the game ended just in time to start the quiz.   We had a few holdovers join us after the game, and one of those teams won the grand prize.  Congrats to Team Late for joining the game without knowing a GWD quiz was taking place beforehand.  Second place came down to a tie between two of our regular teams, Now, Iceman can be more than just Maverick's Wingman

It must be summer, I went to City Market and it was packed full of people I didn’t recognize. There is a lot more traffic in town also, so be careful out there. Some people in town don’t like the influx of Tourrons. I like when the out-of-towners get here. They have decided to spend some time in Gunnison, something we all share in common.  It’s great when some of them in Geeks Who Drink at Timbers. I’m always curious what brought them to town and if they are quizzers from another town. I talked to a guy who was from Austin, Texas and on his list of things to do was to buy legal pot.   I couldn’t tell if it was a hard quiz last night or

Luckily I knew what to expect filling in for Quiz Master Eric at Tarasco due to his excellent and comprehensive notes but what I didn’t know was how *cue Donald Trump impression* luxurious the setup would be. The sound system is top notch and the crowd was lively. All in all a fantastic night as five teams battled it out for Tuesday night Pub Quiz Supremacy. Kudos to my favorite team name of the night, the Swollen Plums, who just got off an Eastbound and Down binge watch before stopping by. The rambunctious group known as the Well Hungarians led for most of the night before they were cruelly usurped in the last round by Nacho

Hey you, how are you? Thanks for clicking my name. Very thoughtful of you.

So, let's see, what do you want to know? Hmm. I took a four month trip around the world last year and saw really cool cities like Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Amman, Budapest, Sofia and Reykjavik. I like beer a lot. I've been drinking nothing but Founders All Day IPA lately since they released the 15 pack for $16!

I also recently discovered the Professor Blastoff podcast and have become obsessed with it. So at any given time, I'm either listening to it or thinking about something funny that happened in one of the episodes. And yes, I can rap just using my body.

Gibson Bar Presents Ginuwine's "Pony Express!"
AdamSweeney

We were more than pumped up to unveil our very own United States Intercontinental Championship belt on the cusp of Independence Day, which honors the 1st place team each week. From now on the week's winning team will get to wear the belt and body slam any challenger. Okay, they don't actually get to do that. We are family friendly and do our own stunts. Don't try this at home, quizzers! So now the pressure is on you, quizzers. Do you really want to let down champions like Hulk Hogan, Randy "Macho Man' Savage, or The Rock down? Hell no, you don't. Granted, I don't know that they have ever won a pub quiz before but they have been in Oscar nominated films like Suburban Commando

Rumble in the Jungle in the Bar or something.
DaniIndovino

We had another close night at the Uptown Bulldog! Winners were determined in the 8th round, and it was a close contest, as usual.   Round One was full of letters and numbers, all Sesame Street style.  Mostly you rocked it out, though more of you need to watch bad Russian movies about submarines, no? But, really, I was just impressed that you all weren't thrown off by the repetition of an answer. Turns out V8 is popular all around, eh?   Round two was collaborative songs. And in the end, you did okay, but again, I was impressed. Way way way too many of you knew all of the artists in Lady Marmalade. Like way too many. You even got Maya,

Pablo Picasso is a jerk
StephanieHagadorn

It was hot and steamy Tuesday night at Craft Pride, but that didn’t stop the 15 teams that came out to play some rounds on Canada, parks, Michael Phelp’s illicit hobbies, some musical theatre and Picasso. Our first place team Not Russel Crowe, not unlike their namesake, came out swinging and had a pretty commanding lead for the night. While the fight for second got scrappy with Donald Trump’s Traditional Marriages beating out Sophie by 1 point for 2nd place. Things we learned this week:•  You can now play shizzle in scrabble. •  An overwhelming number of Canadians are tone deaf

Quizzers, what a night last night at the Indo. I enjoyed it immensely! It was another beautiful day out. I had just auditioned for the Rocky Horror Show in Salem. I had a good drink, and Sharon was handling a large about of the quiz for me, so I could sort of just sit back and chillax. Speaking of Chillax, I wonder if that made the Scrabble Words Dictionary. I look into it and post what I find on the FB page. Anyway quizzers, we wrapped the night with a near Pants off Dance off, had there been a challenge on the, and I guess there sort of was, and we had the power to instantly review the video I may have been hasty in my call. I feel one team started off strong and ended a little weak, and

Canada! Or, Err, Amurrica!

The mood was very festive at Fat Pete's last night, with teams playing the quiz and excitedly following the Women's World Cup game between Germany and the U.S.. When the U.S. triumphed over Germany, the crowd went wild!  Everyone got a good laugh out od the audio rounds, which were both silly parodies. Round 2 in honor of Canada Day was especially funny, especially since there was so much American patriotism in the air after the U.S. women's win.  Like the U.S. Women, a team of their supporters ultimately took home the prize. Germans Look Bad in Red won the quiz with a score of 74, closely inching out Why Leap Second

Sometimes the Questions Confuse Even the Master of the Quiz
John "Sisqo Was An Underappreciated Genius" Powell

  What’s up my geeks? How’s everyone doing? Great turnout last night here in the midst of the summer lull. Always a good time to see everyone and it’s always fun to somehow be unable to understand a question. Anyways, let’s recap.    In last place last night, which was actually a two way tie, we had Le Chatueas and Count Sackula. I feel like maybe if Count Sackula was real, he would certainly live in the magnificently appointed Le Chateau de Sackua. So this pairing actually makes perfect sense.

So my name is John. Here is a blurb about me:

 

  • I love movies. So much. And not just the ones with animated animals teaching me the true meaning of Christmas.
  • I'm a musician. I studied music at school and it's by far the thing that brings me the most joy. I have a job doing the music at a church here in C'ville that I love. I love music. And beer. 
  • If I could have any super power it would be photographic reflexes. Anything I watch, I can do a la Taskmaster.
  • If you ever want to buy me a beer, I like Vienna Lager and anything that doesn't taste like a lawnmower or too hoppy.
  • 15 minutes can save you 15% or more on car insurance
  • My favorite movie is Ghostbusters.
  • I prefer short walks on the beach to long ones. I just don't have time for all of that walking
  • I love to chat. If I'm busy and counting points, feel free to come say hi while I'm hosting! Let's be friends!

It’s a well known fact. Some people try to pick up girls and they get called assholes. But you know who this never happened to? That’s right. Pablo Picasso. You see, he could walk up and down his street and the girls just could not resist his stare. And so Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole. Not like you. Yes, especially you. You know who I mean.   Sorry, that turned into a Taylor Swift song at the end.

Last night’s quiz at Crossroads was one of my favorite quizzes of all time. Not because anything particularly special happened, but because I knew 99% of the teams and players who were there, and many of them are friends of mine, and none of them were douches.   Not only did Big Mama Maria return, but Multiple Scoregasms made a significant leap in score and placing! It must have been that perfect round 7 that really got things going. Y’all sure knew your old school toys and crap. I mean who could forget Skip-Its? I remember my pink one and trying to get the counter to lap itself, was it 999 or 9,999? O=I can’t recall,

Once upon a time there was a girl, whose only goal in life was to leave the great state of Texas. She dreamt and hoped and prayed and wished that she could escape and move to some big fancy city in the north. But dreaming and hoping and praying and wishing don't make things happen. Thank goodness the little girl was smart enough to figure that much out. So the little girl decided that the best course of action was to turn into a super nerd who was awesome at everything and somehow she finagled an escape plan to Boston, which is where she remains to this very day. And she doesn't dream or hope or pray or wish for things to just happen, she simply kicks ass and takes names, but is really, really nice about it and gets shit done. The end.

Forward to the Past
Worst Corey Ever

I missed you all last week! If you didn’t catch it, I wrote you a blog in tribute. You should go back and read it if you haven’t already. And by go back I mean in time. Like, go back in time and read it. Because I wrote it for you so you wouldn’t miss me… but then I was back at quiz tonight… so like, you wouldn’t miss me if you just saw me today, and the whole purpose of the blog is ruined. I’d say I’ll wait for you, but that’s kind of a strange premise, as waiting for someone to go back in time and then catch back up is… slightly improbable maybe? I’m not quite sure what the implications of such a feat would be, but suffice
[ ...more... ]

WARNING: The following is top secret. It will most certainly stay that way, as nobody is ever going to read it.

I know everything there is to know about me. Nobody knows more about me than I do, and most likely nobody ever will. If I were a pub quiz, you would fail.

I am a recovering midwesterner on my ninth step (seeking apologies from everyone who was responsible for my being in the midwest as long as i was). I'll soon be moving on to the tenth step, where I take inventory of how my own actions made such a thing possible.

I am a (mostly) proud BU Terrier (I say mostly because though our hockey team is good, I'd never say I'm proud of them) with a degree in business (the highest of the classical sciences). Though Quizmaster is what I would consider my "day job" I'm also a CPA in my free time. I know what you're thinking, and NO... I DON'T do taxes. Not all CPAs do taxes. I am one of those who does not.

I do not like eating animal. Nothing against the animals. And nothing for the animals. I just don't do it. Don't ask. Or do. I don't give a shit (see Nick Swardson, All Day, for proper accenting of that last sentence).

I am a fan of penguins, owls, sheep, and dragons. This is because I can draw them at a 3rd grade level. All of my other drawing skills are closer to the Pre-K level.

I am a gamer at heart. Talk to me about Final Fantasy or Zelda. Don't talk to me about Halo, COD, or any other FPS disasters. I'm a classic JRPG lover and will defend the genre to the end of the earth. May the various gods help you when you try to argue it with me. "But I can't see people's heads blow up when I kill them!" "You're an idiot. I win."

I am about 5' 10". I am VERY Caucasian (read pale... not my fault). I am a musician. I am well read in Sci-Fi. I am scrawny. I am mostly happy. I am the warrior. I am not your father's oldsmobile.

But mostly, I am. (I think.)
