You Mean I Can Get Married Now?
Paddycake

And if anything from last night is to be carried over, apparently I'm going to marry a dick. But seriously... I am still trying to wrap my head around it. I never thought it would happen, to be honest. I love my home state of Texas, and I am definitely a Texas boy through and through (I spent the better part of my formative years in Louisiana, but I came home to Texas as soon as I could.) But I didn't think Texas would ever see marriage equality in my lifetime. Now that we have it I'm kinda dumbfounded.   As many of you know, I have had a partner for almost 20 years now, and while we aren't rushing out to the altar, It is comforting to know that option is available to

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

By Your Powers Combined...
Shannon

I entered a dramatically lit O.Henry's, ceiling hung with white balloons, and the smell of pizza and meatballs in the air. The Bear claimed the favorite table, in what was perhaps his first strategic move of the evening. This was it. Tonight was the tournament they'd all fought for a place in all month. Aside from a new team, Ladies and the Tramp, (who joined us in round two and and were gone before I could say goodbye,) our crowd was comprised of my darling familiar teams, and some new friends of theirs.    Blatter Control was back, having won their first and only game with us earlier in the month. Key members of Anally

Winning with Wendy!
Wendy

This was my first night as a solo Quiz Master, and I’ve got to say, I don’t think it could have gone any better for a first time.  I was so glad that Luan was there to provide moral support and light coaching. We started out with just 4 teams, but during the second round, we added a fifth.  By the time I finished with round two, I was cruising right along.  Round three was tough on everyone, with only the Flipping Birdies scoring more than 3 pts.  Speaking of Flipping Birdies, the gentleman half of this twosome flipped EVERYONE the bird (metaphorically of course) by winning EVERY BONUS QUESTION! I think he made his lady-friend pretty proud.

Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

Round 1 this evening featured questions which had both letters and numbers in their answers.  Instead of having the answer V8 twice, I feel there might have been a few missed opportunities in this round.  The first possible answer I thought of was UB40…you know you remember the song Red Red Wine…and you secretly (or not-so-secretly) love it.  You do.  I know you do.  I'll also bet that at least half of you reading this had no idea that UB40 is a bunch of white British guys.  Besides UB40, I also thought of WD40, the Galaxy

Karate Master Danual
The Danimal

Hello all!   I know it's not always a pleasant experience having to deal with a sub quiz master, and I know the only reason Jacob was gone is because I bested him in hand to hand combat is his on dojo. But the fact that all five teams stuck around all night long really made my heart sing! And let's be honest, MVP's is a damn rad venue. The perfect style of pub grub mixed with video games up the damn wazoo! Oh, and a set of regulars that are kind enough to guide me through the process of running a video round with minimal screw-ups. I couldn't have been luckier when landing a sub job. I hope you guys have minimal awful things to say about me when reporting

Thinking Back To The Beginning
BostonMcCown

There was a time before the cults started running things in the city. When most casters were still good people. Before the lot of them began drawing their power from the well of lost souls instead of the powers with in. They worked fast to dismantle everything. First, They Came For Our Flags, and without anyone to champion the selfless casters, the cult leaders were able to draw many who desired power without sacrifice into their ranks. The Gator Gangsta's were among the first to join up. Using animal souls at first, but quickly moved on to humans, usually death row inmates who were down for The Bumping Fuzzies rather than the

Getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, nothing really changed.

I still play video games, I play with more expensive toys now a days, but I still play. Between delivering knowledge in the Pub Quiz or delivering jokes on the bar stage, the most important thing is to play.

A Tale of Two Steves
Mitchicus Mathematicus

I have three friends named Steve, two of which have the same birthday and the other one is not terribly far off in the cosmic sense of the word. Fortunately, they are all in different circles of friends, so it never gets confusing. One is kind of famous here in town. I've known his girlfriend since middle school, and he's a good and outgoing guy. I've seen him play on Wednesdays. The other one with the same birthday is an Engineer who makes sure things don't fall apart. He usually plays on Thursdays, and sometimes Monday. The other Steve is in fact a QM, and does many things in his own, let's say special, way. Point being, we had a question on Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the

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.

Tonight was a good, good night!  I have so much fun hosting this venue.  Just can't beat the folks!  We had six super great and competitive teams tonight.  Every team was comprised at least partly of regulars.  That's pretty badass!   Round one was approved by Big Bird... so you know it was a good round.  As a matter of fact, it was a great round for teams Big Bird Flu and Rainbow Rebel Flag, who both scored perfect 8s.  There was a little controversy about the "increasingly-rare engine configuration" known as the V8.  Apparently it's not so rare and still in production.  I steered the concerned citizens to

More Bush Siblings Than We Care to Count
Chloe

Six reasons why the Twisted Pine quiz kids are aggressively cool human beings:   1) They draw dirty Hey Arnold doodles on their answer sheets.   2) They sing me Happy Birthday when I shamelessly announce that it’s my birthday. (Yes, I bribed them with beer. What’s your point?)   3) They know that Homer Simpson’s job title is “Safety Inspector for Sector 7G.”   4) They can sing along to the Skip-It jingle.   5) When asked to name George W.’s siblings their responses included: “Cinnamon” and “I had hoped there weren’t others.”   6)

Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

I missed you guys last week. I wish to God I could have been enjoying the evening with you. You guys are always great for a laugh or a harassment. You guys gave me plenty of it tonight. Nuclear, nucular? I don't even know how I'm saying it anymore. One way is correct, one way isn't. Personally, I'm going to go with they are now both correct due to GWB speaking it into the English language. The girl that played Annie? I got it right eventually and it wasn't even the girl from the new version. To be fair, I'll never be able to pronounce her name ever anyway.  While I was gone we had an amazing week. Gay Marriage was legalized by the Supreme Court, Animal Cruelty is now a crime

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I'm a geek who drinks. What does it mean to be a geek who drinks? I have random knowledge on things like music. I can quote Pulp Fiction like it's no one's business. On my GPS Darth Vader tells me where to go. That's the fun part. The bad part is I also drink. When I drink, I write blogs that have the word "fuck" in it a lot. I make up stories of things that happened in my mind. I also delete my own bio and really don't remember doing it. Thankfully though, I never sucked dick for coke. That was Bob Saget. 

The moral of the story, it's ok to be a geek who drinks, in fact I encourage it. I encourage you to come down to my venue on a Monday or a Tuesday and drink it out with me. I'll quiz you, you give me right answers, and don't be a dick and shout anything out.

We May Be Old, But At Least We Are Legally Allowed to Drink!
Nessa

Today we learned that Homer Simpson is a Nuclear Safety Inspector, kids today will never understand the awesomeness that was the Skip-It, and that Gilbert and Sullivan were vaguely racist. But now on the important stuff!   Sparkles came in second place, but put up a great fight. And honestly you guys had the best answers. I mean seriously, George H.W. and Barbra Bush’s other children are not Rose, Lavender, and Dick. As much as sincerely wish they were.

Nobody Cares About Neil Bush
NickMolinare

Well that's not entirely true, I am sure that Mamma Bush cares very much about her non-governor son.  Re to the cap, recap time. Round one was brought to you by all the letters and the numbers. Big Bird would have been all over this round, but he probably wouldn’t have known the soviet sub question either. Round 2 was a compilation round all songs that weren’t just by one artist. I asked you guys to give me just one of the artists, but we had a couple of teams that wanted to show off and give me all of the artists. No bonus points for those teams, but never the less I was impressed. Round three was a global super power round. I wanted the

So How Was Your DCM?
Mike Cabellon

Small world, right? A player from the team The Dorkest Timeline (nice goatee) moved into an apartment right down the street from my girlfriend's old place, and a few members of Lord Butts (nice butts) joined me at this past weekend's improv festivities. Wild. Also, as funny as Lord Butts is, we were blessed by the presence of Joey Fatone. Can't wait to see which member of N'Sync shows up next week. A toast to new friends!

G20, G8... I thought it was like a G6?
AdamFedyski

The difference between the three G’s in the title is that more Americans are familiar with the third one, which has no impact on anything except the level of success that a musical group called “Far East Movement” was able to achieve with thought provoking lyrics like “These sober girls around me, they be actin' like they drunk; They be actin' like they drunk, actin'-actin' like they drunk” The G-20, on the other hand, is an international forum for governments of twenty major economic countries that engage in high level conversations about international financial stability and governance.

Not the devil himself, exactly. Devil’s Daughter and their regular quiz crowd. We had a good night in the heat. Was everyone sweating their balls off, or was it just me? I’m gonna cross my fingers and hope it was everyone. Tonight there was fun to be had in the form of knowledge, and there were several people there to partake of that fun. Maybe some of you were just dragged into unknowingly, but hopefully you had fun anyway.   We had two lovely ladies that joined in with our biggest table of the night to break it into 2 teams.

Two years into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursdays. Other than trying to fry brains during pub quiz I spend my life snowboarding and frying my own brain studying science at the U. Not too shabby, eh? After moving around to a bunch of different places after high school and college (Portland, Cuba, Chile, NYC, SLC, DC) I'm back in these big beautiful mountains (I'm from here originally)!

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'. Not my real middle name, but it is a nickname that makes me turn my head when called. I promise not to laugh too hard when you say Africa is a country or something equally as outrageous.

Good quizzes pop up out of nowhere at Cain and Abel's, every week I think we're gonna be empty and then a battle royale arrives right before quiz, you guys are full of surprises. Round one was brought to you by the letters G, W, and D, and I don't think I've ever seen a round where two questions had the exact same answer...tricky. The audio round was full of collaborations, but I feel like Lady Marmalade is either a gimme or the hardest audio question EVER, there's like 40 people on that song. Round three was a timed round with the difference between G-20 and the G-8, is that just the globalized cool kids table? I'm a PC person, so the idea of an entire
