Colin (Rainier)

Folks around these parts know me by a lot of names. Having grown up in Seattle I went by Cookie during my time playing baseball. Also had the nickname Nature Boy at summer camp, and in high school Spanish class I was Diablo. Along with my many names come many talents. I was the state pickleball champion two years in a row (2005-2006) and have a pretty mean drinking arm when it comes to bar games. Try your luck and challenge me to some pool if you feel lucky. Am a passionate world traveler with plenty of plans to keep moving along in the future. Currently enjoying life and laying it all on the line Monday night at the Blue Star Cafe & Pub.

 

 

 

 

Royal with Cheese

In what could be described as true to his acting spirit I read plenty of questions in my best John Travolta impersonation and as expected it was horrible. I mean the guy doesn’t even really have a distinct voice 90 percent of the time. So when you combine that with the fact that I, Quizmaster Colin, have zero training or skill at imprisoning a celebrity you got what you deserve Blue Star. A terrible Travolta reading questions at you. You deserve this for letting Gig Harbor win and I expect it to never happen again.

 1st A Team Named Slickback

The quiz itself was pretty solid of course. I didn’t butcher anything too badly which is surprising considering how bad Travolta was at reading names you’d have thought that would be the only part I could have gotten correct. Still it was such a beautiful day so why completely ruin it. We poked fun at Michael Bay right off the bat with round 1’s He Ruins Everything. Followed that up with some classic music questions and then threw a curveball at you when we asked you about Mike Judge the writer.

2nd  Total Eclipes of the Old Farts

This past Weekend we saw Chris turn a year older and I just wanted to take a moment and recognize just how cool this Kat is. People have been quoted saying things like “Chris Hemsworth is totally hot.” Or “Chris Evens was solid as Captain America.” and who can forget “Chris Rock is one of many talented comedians.” With words like those already spoken it seems egotistical to say anything else, but what can I say other than I am a quizmaster. Chris is a great guy and I am happy to count him as one of my quizzers. Be it the random nights I disappear while drinking with him or the late night Beth’s runs we hold in his honor. I look forward to many more evenings of mistakes, pleasant surprises, and broken Risk treaties.  Happy Birthday Chris!

3rd BOOBS [80085]

The evening is highlighted with the lunar eclipse which sadly wasn't really visible for us in Seattle due to cloud cover. Hopefully you were able to go onto NASA and watch the stream of it from their satellites as well as multiple viewing cameras around the nation. It was a real treat and looked amazing. I highly recommend you keep up to date on all the amazing things we are doing in space (This is going somewhere.) So remember to watch Cosmos if only for the amazing hate tweets that come after every episode.

I am a man of my word and right now my word is ‘Nuts’. We got destroyed by Quizmaster Russel this past month and it was because of the horde of quizzers that liked his hateful blogs. I tip my hat to him. He rallied his sheep to like his blog and reached an impressive 100+ likes. That is not only more than enough to beat us last month, but a company record. If you’re going to lose you should lose to the best. Quizmaster Russel has spun the wheel of punishment. Next week you will have the pleasure of hearing me read round 8 in the voice of Travolta. This is what you wrought Blue Star.

The new month means we now have a new competition. I will accept nothing less than victory from you my army of quizzers. That means you better like this blog and show up ready to win the quiz.  We are winning the quiz score battle so we have the dominating smarty pants teams. Keep at it and keep on keeping on my wonderful quizzers. Now on to the evening we all know and love. QUIZ NIGHT!

Plenty of teams and passion could be seen tonight as right behind the quizmaster you all saw University of Connecticut take down Kentucky in a pretty good game of basketball. Having grabbed the lead and never let go the Huskies earned the win and my congratulations. I would say I was able to pay close attention, but we all know that would be a lie. I was all about quiz so thankfully it was more than entertaining. Some of the highlights included

                Team name of the night goes to Selfie Away, Mr. President & 9th bride of zombie Mickey Rooney.

                Top Answer goes to Dammit Colin for writing the answer ‘This Round Is Nothing But A Headache Jerk’ for the entire round 7. Seems you guys didn’t know your former Cheers actors careers. Not my fault, but I thank your creative messaging system.

A lovely part of being the Blue Star Quizmaster is that I get to go out for drinks with the staff afterwards. This leads to some wonderful conversations and epic one liners. From memory here are a few classic after quiz gems.

                “I want your penis perpendicular.”

                “Angry Vagina is much better than Angry Cervix”

                “You should say something about placenta in the blog!”

                “Why does everything we talk about come back to penises?”

As you can see we talk about many things including current events, politics, and classy culture. Who are we kidding it is a total kids playground. I think we talked about ice cream trucks selling… drugs? Drugs? DRUGS! That is what they were also selling when they went around at midnight in Baltimore according to a reliable source. I wouldn’t know because that is a city with real dangerous parts and I am a coward.

The picture of the night goes to A Team Named Slickback who had their cute mascot making it rain past winnings. I am looking forward to seeing you all next week so remember to like the blog and of course come ready to win!

Quizmaster Colin

PS Shout out to Alisha for being so amazing and likely the one who inspired the team name The Blue Star Likes to Dance.

Also shout out to Sam because he said it would be a good way to accumulate likes on this blog. Abeal deserves one as well I guess. Not really sure about Phillip since he had a whole round at quiz.

Alright, let’s get this underway with a true statement: my head hurts. It should come as no surprise that my head hurts considering how much I had to drink last night. In honor of surviving another year on this floating rock in space, I took to the bottle with my friends and family for a wonderful birthday quiz. It is because of that event that my head hurts. Now that we got the business end of the blog out of the way, we can get to the fun stuff.

I felt a lot of love from the crowd tonight and that is in no small part thanks to the amazing staff at the Blue Star and the truly delightful quizzers I have come to know and love in return. There were plenty of new and old faces alike (Am I one of the old faces now?) so when quiz got underway plenty of teams actually listened to me when I started to read the rules. That was a little awkward, but I was able to rally and get through it with few slipups.

Speaking of slipups did anyone notice how much I rocked the quiz? Besides the final team question in round 8 I nailed pronunciation across the board. Those that know my quiz usually can count on a comedic misspoken word here or there, but last night I must have learned to talk because I was on fire. With the way things are going so far, I think we can all agree this is going to be a great month for Blue Star Quiz.

Next up is the ever important rivalry our quiz has with the quiz at Gig Harbor. Quizmaster Russel and I have been exchanging blows back and forth as we continue to remind the other how inferior they are to the other. Here is a small taste of the slick burns I have been throwing down south: “Like the Romans and the Carthaginians I will salt the earth you now stand on so that when your body falls no life will spring from your corpse.” I was surprised he even hosted a quiz after he read that little ditty.

Well, the numbers are in and while Russel’s crew did a job on our scores we are well ahead of him in numbers of points total. He may have the highest winning score or even the highest average round 6, but what we, the Seattle Horde, have is the only points that matter and that is enough to put us in the lead.  Remember to like this blog if you want to make the beat down all the more bloody (We get a point for every like)

With all the fun and jubilation, it is not lost to me that Blue Star is losing a dear friend of mine. Last night was also the last night Brian will be able to regularly attend quiz. Apparently something called “school” requires his attention and between that and quiz he picked the first. We are all sad to see him go, but I am sure he will be back from time to time to remind us just how great he is. He is my friend, my countrymen, and of course has a great collection of shirts.

Another true delight at quiz is of course the amazing staff soldiering forward every quiz to bring you drinks and food all quiz long. You will be happy to know that not only was the quiz an adventure with them, but after quiz as well. Plenty more drinks were had (Sadly not from the legs) and I want to take this moment to say, from the bottom of my hung-over heart, I love you all and you make this quizmaster’s life completely and totally out of this world.

The staff was very successful in getting me birthday drunk. We shot some pool, had plenty of inappropriate laughs and moments, and I think other stuff happened but I was pretty far gone so you are going to have to ask them to fill in the blanks. What I do know is that they are all amazing beautiful gorgeous woman whom I am lucky to even know - let alone call friends. It is acceptable and even expected that all of you are jealous of me simple because I know the Magnificent Amy, Splendid Sarah, Vivacious Vance, Brilliant Hayley, and Breathtaking Alisha. They are the best. Moving on we come to the blog contest.

 Blog Essay

For those have haven’t seen the now infamous UNC student athlete final paper please treat yourself to a funny/sad minute and read this real life college essay about Rosa Parks. Some of the quizmasters have opted to make a little blog competition where we take it back to college for a little game I am calling “Dumb it Down for UNC” I have elected to take on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Here is my submission.

Abraham Lincoln: Behind The Booth

 

Abraham Lincoln is many other presidents’ favorite president. That makes him important to me and Obama. It was sad when the civil war happened and many Americans died. After it was finished Lincoln was very tired after speaking 2 people in Gettysburg. Other people were upset about the civil war because they lost and one poor sport was named John W. Booth. In the TV show Bones the character Seeley Booth is related to John Booth, but I don’t know if that is true. The killing happened at a theater where Lincoln was watching a play called Our American Cousin. I haven’t seen it. Booth took his gun out and shot Lincoln in the back. Lincoln died from a bullet wound. It was very sad. When Abraham Lincoln died he was no longer the president because Andrew Johnson was now president.

 

There you have it folks: the unabridged accounts of one of most famous moments in American History. Think it will earn me that A- I need to pass? I sure hope it does.

All things must come to an end and at this point the blog has reached that point. Thank you so much to everyone who came out for my birthday. You are all special in your own way so here are some birthday notes for people who came to my quiz.
