Map It Out
Quizmaster Mike

I used to be a pizza delivery driver in this city. Actually, only a block away from Bruno’s at Fresco Cafe. Outside of Geeks, it was the best job I’ve ever had. 90% of your time is just driving around listening to music. You only deal with your boss for the 3 minutes when you come back into the restaurant for an order and leave again. You only deal with customers for 3 minutes on the opposite side when you’re getting the money and handing them the pizza. The rest is driving. Two interesting things I learned from delivering food. One, i know what the inside of your house looks like. And yes, it’s very very weird. Most of the people ordering

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.

The Night That the Lights Went Out in Traverse
SuperDave

Mother Nature can be quite temperamental at times, and Sunday night was a wonderful example of her brute force.  Severe thunderstorms with tornado-force winds and hail ravaged the Grand Traverse area (with an actual twister touching down in nearby Glen Arbor), which uprooted massive trees with relative ease (as evidenced by the photographic evidence) and cut power to the majority of the area.  It is quite a finale for the last day of the Traverse City Film Festival, and undoubtedly ruined the weekend for visitors and tourists coming from afar.  But there was a beacon of refuge for the many seeking someplace dry following the storm, and that place was Kilkenny’s

I'm just your friendly neighborhood SuperDave, that's all. When I'm not enjoying a good pint of craft beer and memorizing seemingly useless nuggets of wisdom for trivia purposes, I can be found behind the mic at a Traverse City Roller Derby bout or a Traverse City Hounds Jr. A hockey game, cycling and camping through Northern Michigan, enjoying a Netfliz or Hulu binge (Adventure Time! C'mon, tell your friends!), or catching up on listening to a litany of podcast gold (Nerdist, Doug Loves Movies, Marek vs. Wyshynski, Short's Cast, Sound Opinions, et al). And I love tacos (almost as much as MY WIFE!)

We had a one point game last night! The game was close throughout the night, but Tickle me Sandusky beat out Team Awesome by a single point in the end. Real Eyes Realise Real Lies placed a very respectable fourth and was my favorite team name! I have a give away of my own right now. Just for reading my blog and being the first person to tell me at the next quiz, I'll buy you a drink! Just tell me that you saw it here :)

My Whole Life Has Been Post-9/11
Dr. Rex N.F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

If I were going to rank my top three birthdays it would, not necessarily in order of prefence, go like this:    Eleventh birthday. It was the first time in three years I hadn’t had a birthday party. My father and stepmother took me out to Chuck E. Cheese, we had a pizza and played Skee-Ball against each other. After dinner, we took a walk from where we lived in central Austin to the University of Texas campus, walked around the Texas Tower, and home. It was after ten at night when we headed back, the walk was probably a total of a little over two miles.

Doctor Nick: Thymelord

This will go down as my favorite summer of all time. I am sure that this bizarre weather has something to do with our inevitable atmospheric collapse and death, but at least we can look back at the summer of 2015 as one of the most pleasant and wet summers Salt Lake City has ever had in our lifetimes. And really, living in the now is the right way to live. Right? Going to a certain public place this morning has reminded me how much I want to ban cable news stations. We don’t need them. We don’t even need the shitty local news shows that make us more stupid each morning and evening. This is why I stopped listening and supporting NPR. I am better off the less “news”

Nick is one of the rare people who was born in Las Vegas long before it became Disneyland for degenerates. His growing discomfort for heat, and ongoing feud with some Canadian boy named Celine Dion led him to the land of Zion. Upon discovering this wasn't the same land of Zion mentioned in The Matrix, he decided to make the best of the situation and began hosting pub quizzes. 

His hobbies include drinking, eating, teaching children to swear, cooking, and being one of the last people on earth who thinks CDs are the only way to buy music. His turnoffs are walks on the beach, because that combines sun, sand, and countless bacterias growing in the moist heat. 

By day he looks at an endless supply of MBA student assignments and weeps for the future. His most recent inappropriate comment to a student was, "I could take your business proposal to run an armoury for Live-Action-Role-Players seriously if it wasn't for the 793 grammatical errors which impeded my giggling."

He's not a licensed therapist, but he's happy to take a look inside your head and solve your problems. Better yet, come out to a quiz and drink your troubles away.

Hello. When I feel awkward I like to talk about my cats. If you stick around long enough I will definitely start showing you pictures of my cats. However, I am feeling mildly confident right now so here are some fascinating tidbits about this QM:

I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you this is the most stable job I have ever had also, this is the longest I have ever held a job. It has been a challenge committing to the quiz but, it is one I do well with whiskey.

I enjoy watching copious amounts of television, muttering softly to myself and bowling. My day job is in the mental health field. I would like to adopt more cats. I am afraid of aliens and think human/ alien relations will never really jive. I have a degree in cultural anthropology. I am greatly looking forward to the impending apocalypse and hope you will enjoy my quiz. I suffer from a mild form of social anxiety and often fall victim to fear farts.

See you on Tuesday,

Andrea

"I told him not to tease those bees."
Thorny

Like most mammals, I prefer some things to be warm. Socks, hugs, Luke, and especially welcomes. And that's just what I received at my first official night quizzing at O'Possum's. What a great bunch of people! They really made me feel like I belonged, and I'm super grateful for that. Here's hoping we can build an awesome quizmaster-quizee relationship for years to come. The usual suspects were there in full force, along with some eager newcomers, (myself included!) ready for a quiz.  And what a quiz it was. We covered all sorts of ground, from politics to parasites, beers to bees, Poland to Poland again, and everything in between. Here are some things that we

Going Down in a Blaze of Glory

This weekend has been brought to you by binge eating and gluttony. Why do I say that? Because quite a few of us QMs including myself and Kavi have thrown money on the line to see if we can get fitter. Why am I doing this? Well, you've seen me on that stage. I want to look as hot as Kavi-kins does in those tights and the first step is slimming my Thunderous Thighs! I will definitely miss the grand entrance I can make when sprinting but the slimmer  ones will put me in some sexy pants that I will literally be able to can in. Confidence is everything, folks!

Killer Bees!!!!
Score-O-Matt-ic 9001 Series QUIZBOT

In the 80's, I was that kid who was afraid of most everything.  I'm surprised I never got beat up, but I managed to survive, somehow.  With Fireworks, I had to cover my ears to enjoy them.  Loud noises, in general.  The cannon at the circus scared the total shit out of me.  I didn't, and still don't, like sharp drops and anything that spins real fast.  That leaves most every ride out of the question at the amusement park.  I actually had to have the Tilt-a-Whirl stopped so I could get off once.  I still remember getting yelled out by the ride operator.  He's dead now.  Water slides were OK.  I could handle those.

Here's the best thing about The Shakespeare: it attracts a lot of British and Irish clientele who are very familiar with the concept of a Pub Quiz and are always incredibly enthusiastic, but have a lot of trouble with the quiz content because they aren't from here.       Tonight there was a team from Stratford-on-Avon in England (and the home of the bar's namesake!).

Great rounds tonight! Love round 6’s knot themes! Scouts make the best bondage masters? Now that is some kinky stuff. But, “boys weekends” aside, the sailor in me was excited to see nautical miles featured! And on a more serious note, I was a little concerned so many teams put the slipknot as the knot “everybody would know”… I certainly don’t know how to make a slipknot, is this really common knowledge?? yikes, hopefully not!

Tonight was yet another awesome night at the Lucky Dog. We had lots of new faces and some returning teams. The six teams to grace us with their presence were: Table, Alpha Beta Wasted, I Came for the Beer, Sandy Vaginas, It's Short But Skinny, and This Team is Lazy. It was yet another hot night in the inviting, cold bar. As a Scrabble fan, Round One's Triple Word Score category was awesome to read. My personal favorite was “a type of businessperson, or one of 10,000 certain maniacs” being Merchant. Because the night belongs to lovers; because the night belongs to us. Rock it, Natalie Merchant.
