Looking at the standings on a week-by-week basis, you would think that the Blue Star has a lot fewer regulars than it actually does.

Take Return of the Mac, for instance, who are no strangers to the Top 3, but begrudgingly refuse to settle down on a consistent name that would make it easier for me to identify them before the bitter end each week.

And then you have There's a Cumberbatch In My Dr. Strange, who also refuse to do so, but doing it in a gleeful rather than begrudging manner. Sure, their name is typically easier to identify due to the sci-fi/fantasy leanings, but its harder for me to write about their pub quiz character arcs when they keep rebranding themselves.

On the other hand, you have tonight's winners (and regular champions) A Team Named Slickback, who show up, quietly dominate, leave, and then return next week to do it over again. Rinse, lather, repeat.

Honorable mentions (for their regular names, not necessarily their performance this week) go to Dr. SpacemanBoobs, and Where's Melissa (somewhere between those three names is a story waiting to be told). 

What? I like structure. I'm just sayin'.

Until next week.

I'm feeling a tad bit under the weather, and when this happens, I usually turn to a rather unconventional pick-me-up: the Chinese food at the deli section of a Safeway.

Of all the childhood comforts that have lost their appeal in adulthood (including Warheads, Izzy's Pizza Buffet, and the second Power Rangers movie), the Shanghai Dinner combo at Safeway has somehow endured and is still my typical go-to lunch/dinner/breakfast-the-next-day feast for those sick days at home, from which I am writing this post.

That and ginger ale, which should only ever be consumed while ill and/or on a plane.

Until next week!

I blog about myself. I blog about the quiz. But you know what I almost never blog about? The quizzers themselves. At least in the level of detail that some of the regulars have come to deserve.

We'll start with a recent addition. Where's Melissa burst onto the Blue Star scene a few weeks ago when one of their recurring players drunkenly(?) approached and threatened me following some acute counter-heckling on my part. The same guy would come up and and apologize to me in a subsequent quiz (yeah, we're cool now, bro).

Since then, the team has been slowly inching their way up the standings as the weeks have gone by, putting in a third place finish tonight (and being delighted that there was a prize for that).

So I dug a little deeper. I asked who Melissa was.

Turns out, they had all met in one of those leagues (Softball? Dodgeball? One of those games played by athletic folk.) where Melissa turned out to be the one signed-up member who never showed. The reached out, they emailed, they called, an no answer. Melissa had vanished without a trace.

Somewhere out there, Melissa is blissfully aware that no less than six people are calling out to her, trying to sew together a friendship that was meant to be but never came to pass due to unknown cirumstances.

Thus, they named their team in honor of that never-ending mystery.

Ahead of them was A Team Named Slickback, putting in an impression solo second place finish, with newcomers Full Pints & Half Wits taking first place, with the top three teams all being separated by a single point.

We're back in full swing, the regulars are taking shape, and the competition is heating up.

Join us next week as a new chapter unfolds.
