WARNING: Terrifying Super Bowl Commercial Mascots Mentioned in Blog
C.M. Geesey

Once again we filled up our comfy little slice of bar heaven, and once again our regular teams were out for blood to stop the reign of our champions from last week, WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED THIS TIME!  No, you can’t force me to do it, I don’t wanna!  I saw the Super Bowl and was already cursed to witness the unholy amalgamation of creature and child.  So if I refuse to relive it by mentioned our champs’ new name, then I’m not obligated by any moral authority to change my mind.  So take that, PuppyDrunkyBaby! AAH, sonuvabitches!  How could you do that to us!?  We were finally to Wednesday, well past the attention span

Tina the Bold

Wow!  Sloan’s was busy tonight, and I think we rocked the casbah with both grace and laughter.  I had both Deme and Jesse up at the bar, waiting to pounce on an open table—their teams thanked them for it with great scores!  Thom decided to stay up at the bar; I decided to start with a Bulliet Rye Manhattan, up.  And thus the Quiz began. Kids, Kids, Kids… and Hail Peyton!  I live on the Mall, so my quiet Broncos fandom turned to mild fear a couple of times this week.  That being said, I do love the Broncos and am totally impressed with the joy they got to witness!  Also, rioting is NOT EVER APPROPRIATE after a sweet win by one’s

Cannes You, Cannes You Do The Cannes Cannes?
ChristopherRounsville

What is the next thing you’re excited about doing? I think that’s something everyone needs to have in mind. Always be doing something or going somewhere, staying motionless is the equivalent of going backwards, or at least that’s the perspective of everyone passing you. What am I doing right now? Well, I was planning on going to the Cannes Film Festival after I heard it’s held on a tropical island half full of half naked women, but since apparently that’s only for hoity toity, movie makers. I wonder if I could submit some of my old home videos cross cut with shots of time lapsed sun sets and call it a movie? So back-up plan? Well, since baseball

All Asses are Chapless
RyanSchofield

I'm so lucky to have such a loyal group of players at Scotland Yard Pub. Week after week I do something that makes myself look like a real idiot. For the most part this requires no effort whatsoever, sometimes I intentionally play into it. For all I know it's part of the reason people like coming out to the Yard on Wednesday night. This week might have been an all-timer. I was kinda half reading words on questions and half scoring answers. It must have been a while since I had to deal with this many teams. Apparently when I was re reading a question instead of asking if "All Chaps are Assless" I asked if "All Asses are Chapless".  At least this is what a player tweeted at me.

We had another awesome quiz last night, but that’s old news at this point. We always have the best damned quiz in Seattle on Wednesday nights at The Canterbury Ale House. It was pretty much the same awesome quiz we have every week… but with one slightly sad note. A staple of our Wednesday night quiz has been your waiter Bobby. He’s been at every quiz that I’ve hosted at The Canterbury, but this was his last week. After last night he is moving (across the country) to what will hopefully brighter pastures. So I bid farewell and best wishes to Bobby! You will be missed.   It seems only fitting then that out of 25 teams competing, Drinking

I Still Feel Like Pendejo Is Another Way of Saying Cowboy
Nick Danger

Oh man, y’all. Last night’s quiz started off already cranked to eleven but let me tell you, when round two hit? There was no containing the fury of the woo (wu?). Also, my quizzers apparently have some sort of hive mind bullshit going on. Several times throughout the night I noticed more than a couple teams put down not only the wrong answer, but the same wrong answer. Wavelengths, yo! Props to the smartasses who showed their work on round six, question four. I didn’t award any extra points for it, but do feel free to pat yourselves on the back. I feel like I always learn something new at these quizzes, and this one was no exception. I, for one, had no idea that Madonna had

Woooo woooo
CameronSullivan

It turns out I wasn't the only person being slowly driven mad by the sound of someone wooing incessantly at the Super Bowl. It was so annoying we did a whole round on it. The last question was a thinker with Protect Ya Neck by the Wu-Tang Clan not containing any woos.  Don't quiz on the electric fence notched another win last night on the back of a well-time joker in the music round and never looked back. Bern after winning and Igloo Jumpers finished 2nd and 3rd after a hard fought battle.  Most teams really knew their American and English Civil War history, though only a couple knew the story

It's The Little Things in Life
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 Thursday, 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. Right off the bat, Team We get to sit around in a chill bar that actually serves great food, including the special that I had last night: Chicken Sherry, which absolutely blew my mind. We have cats and loved ones to go home to, and maybe even quiz with. (Absolutely bring your cat to quiz, in other

Death by Wooden Leg
Larry

So we quizzed last night. I liked it. It felt really good. Everything was super smooth. The whole thing flowed really well. We were missing some of our normal quizzers. Where were you guys? I know you didn’t it enjoy whatever you were doing as much as we enjoyed watching other last night. Yeah, the Broncos won. Cool. The Panthers lost. Boo. The half-time show, well, it sucked. I had to say Deez Nuts several times last night. You guys sounded like my students. I’m just waiting for a team to be 21. I called my kids out the other day for still using 21. It’s really old, guys Deez Nuts is even a bit old. Grow up. I still love

Larry jumped in a car and made the twenty-two hour, 1,456 mile trek across the United States with his dog and bikes in 2014 to the incredibly awesome state of Colorado. Larry teaches middle school by day and quizzes on the minds of the unwilling, and sometimes willing, folk by night. Enter the mind of Larry and you will discover totally pointless neurotic thoughts and arguments with himself that are usually centered around bikes, the fact that clowns and mimes are the most vile and terrifying things on this planet, dead American Gothic authors, fireworks and the cosmos.

Gravity: It's the Law!
Nightglow

So last night was my one-year Quizaversary! I've been asking silly-yet-thought-provoking questions for your contemplation and booze-soaked entertainment for a solid YEAR now! Y'all have been just incredible over the time I've been doing it, and I am beyond excited for the next year of quiz-related shenanigans! <nerd rant> So: Gravity. Today, it was announced that Graviational Waves have been detected for the very first time. Which is super-duper exciting! Gravity as we think about it is not a force, but the shape of the universe. Massive objects distort this shape like a boat displacing water. When very very big objects move through space, they make waves in the fabric of

Days Gone Bye
Adam Jarmon Brown

  The Walking Dead is back on Sunday. I love that freaking show. But, it’s not Sunday, it’s Wednesday. And tonight we have a quiz. Also, as an aside, Deadpool opens tomorrow night and I’ll be in awesome seats with a giant tub of popcorn. Honestly Deadpool is all I have on my mind today. Was even discussing my plans to see it with quizzers last night. So excited.  Annnnnnnnnnnnyway, tonight we had a quiz. Eight rounds of quiz filled goodness. We started with Two-Stepping the ABC’s. Every answer had alphabetical initials. Answer 1 AB, 2 CD etc etc. The bonus

All the answers had the initials going through the alphabet - 1st answer AB, 2nd answer CD, etc, ya know. Team Papa John's Greasy Pepperoni Kisses know us so well, they had the bonus answer Quiet Riot ready before I even asked the question. Beer for them (and pretty much for the majority of the quiz).Round 3 we had to identify

Seriously, It's Gross
Renerdssance Man

What is it with bar/restaurant industry people and fernet? Stuff is apparently an industry favorite and I cannot fathom why. It is just VILE. It doesn't "cleanse my palate," it makes it gross. I need a palate cleanser after my palate cleanser. A "digestif?" I prefer my digestion without gross liquids involved, thank you. So, of course, that's what my jerk friends (Fernet Me Not) buy a shot of for me and trainee QM (and soon to be JP supersub) Katie after round three. They know I hate it. They don't know Katie hates it, but she does. Anyway, I'm sure writing this will have the exact opposite effect than I want. …Yes, I did

Spaghettysburg
The Brennagade

Round Three last night was a 50-50 round on the American Civil War and English Civil War (of which there were several). At my middle school, 6th grade was spent learning about ancient civilizations, 7th grade was spent on American History, and 8th grade was spent learning about how the government worked plus whatever wasn’t covered in 7th grade. I’m assuming it was similar at most public middle schools across New York, but that was for sure how we did things. Anyways, to make learning about history less lame, they held a class trip every year, with 6th grade going to the Memorial Art Gallery, and the 8th

Playing the Odds
Sarah

When you play the odds, you bet on a sure thing. That is exactly what Jake From State Farm hoped would happen as the ONLY team to make it to Geeks Who Drink tonight! Not to totally bore me, the bar staff conglomerated together and created Team Chewy while the bartender cajoled some friendly patrons into being Puta, AKA Team Chad. Unfortunately for Jake From State Farm, their shot at winning the big kahuna of a gift card was thwarted. Well hell Linda, there is always next time.   Seriously though - what gives?

What do Guns N Roses and a Chrysler Sebring have in common?
Jack McFly: Private Eye

Both have really messed up axles (I swear to god, if someone points out the difference in spelling between the two, not only do you not get how puns work, but you can no longer be my friend). That’s right, despite shredding a ball joint and an axle mere hours before quiz time, Shannon (not surprisingly of team F*CK CHRYSLER SEBRINGS) still made it out. That’s dedication, friends. That gets you a beer. And a new car. But I’m only paying for one of those things. Meanwhile, full disclosure, I totally messed up Mark! Mark! Mark!’s score. In round 2, I graded their sheet “12” but only inputted a “2.”
