I've been telling myself for weeks that I need to start blogging about the actual quiz instead of myself and my views on an assortment of innane topics, so tonight is the night the (hopefully not temporary) change happens.

I picked a good quiz for it, too, as it turned out to be one of the highest-scoring and most competitive faceoffs we've had in weeks.

It was also a big night for redundancy (or to put it more positively: recurring themes). Spanning multiple questions/categories, Band of Brothers, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Time seemed to be omnipresent in tonight's quiz. 

Another recurring theme among team names tonight seemed to be individual names. Between I Miss Anthony, How Are You Late Annie??, and Lisa Is Killing it!, there seemed be a lot of backstory floating around that most of us weren't privvy to.

I'd like to think that Lisa, Annie, and Anthony are all involved in some kind of love triangle where (and bear with me here, I'm still piecing it all together) Anthony seems to have knocked up both Annie and Lisa ("how are you late" indeed) and subsequently bailed, leading Lisa to decide to go ahead and nip it in the bud (she's "killing it!")...with the assistance of Doc J. What a twist!

Most of the night seemed to belong Dr. Spaceman (the one who wanted nothing to do with all that drama) and A Team Named Slickback, but they both only made it as far as second place, where the former secured the runner-up title following not one but two sudden death tiebreaker questions.

The winning spot actually ended up going to Kilt Lifters, who skyrocketed up to the lead following a jokered 14-point Round 8 even after they initially secured a solid 13 points during the music round, opting instead to wait it out and see if they could do better. Now that's confidence.

Until next week!

Sportball is back!

I grew up up outside of Portland, which is one of America's few major cities that (aside from the Blazers) is mostly void of sports franchises on both the pro and college level. As a result, I never really got swept up in sportball fever until I went to college.

Now I love sportball, but I still identify with folks who don't. For me personally, it's not the actual athletics or the competition or even the heated rivalries that make it fun, but more so the energized atmosphere that has engulfed the entire city of Seattle. Yes, you could argue that I'm a bandwagon fan, but I'd like to think that my Seahawks fandom can actually be attributed to me graduating from college sportball to the NFL upon transitioning out of my academic years. I can't help if that happened to coincide with Seattle emerging as sportball's new juggernaut.

The rivalries are great, though. For me, it's not enough for the Hawks to win, but the entire starting line of the 49ers also has to sustain serious injuries to make me happy. I'll settle for just Kaepernick, though. Ideally, he'd be hospitalized long enough to the point where he'd lose his Beats by Dre sponsorship and we never have to see a commercial as stupid as that one ever again.

...I should really just stick to blogging about the quiz.

The top three tonight was filled with some of the usual suspects (which was also one of the evening's answers), with the top spot ultimately going to A Team Named Slickback, who also put up a hell of a good effort at this past weekend's Rumble in the Pub showdown despite only having one member representing the team.

Until next time!

In recent years, whenever I thought of Labor Day, I wouldn’t exactly associate it with relaxation. The weekend would consist of either an exhausting three-day musical festival or otherwise a rushed trip wherein only a single day didn’t include traveling.

This year I said “to hell with it!” and sold my Bumbershoot tickets last minute in favor of enjoying a proper staycation. Today especially was a great one, during which I was able to:

  1. Start the morning off with a game of racquetball.
  2. Go to a downtown pub and have a full Irish breakfast.
  3. Go check out the 99-cent blue tag Labor Day sale at a nearby Goodwill (one look at me and you can tell that this is where I buy most of my clothes).
  4. Watch a few episodes of Utopia.
  5. Put together a few rounds for future quizzes.
  6. Read the first volume of Brian K. Vaughan’s “Saga” and then immediately head to a comic book shop to buy the next two.
  7. Host.

As is the norm for Labor Day, the quiz was a quiet one tonight, with only about half a dozen teams duking it out. The evening ended up belonging to regulars (though not regularly named) Guardians of the Nethersphere with fellow regulars A Team Named Slickback as the runner-ups. Further props to both of these teams for qualifying for the big Final Rumble after a string of numerous victorious throughout the Rumble in the Pub.

Until next week.
