Whether it was blissful ignorance or deliberate escapism, the environment at last night's quiz hinted at zero signs that the country was entering a state of anger and bewilderment outside the walls of the warm and cheery Blue Star.

There are places to discuss those larger-world events, but these numble and self-centered blog musings probably aren't the best venue.

Instead, I'm just going to wish the quizzers a great Thanksgiving and take the opportunity to express my gratitude that I get to do this every single week.

Until next time, my friends.

Seriously - Is Colin Dead?

The quizzers that traditionally go by A Team Named Slickback decided to donate their valuable team name real estate this week to pose the quesion that has been on everybody's but realistically, at this point, nobody's minds: when will Quizmaster Emiretus Colin return to us?

At first it was going to be September. Then October. Then December. And now, finally, Colin has solidified plans to return to the United States in time for the holidays, and to Seattle in the first week of the new year.

At which point he and I will fight to the death on top of a zeppelin to see who gets the Blue Star moving forward. But more on that later.

Another packed house this week as a large dose of full-size teams filled up our beloved venue to test their wits. The Gronk Zone (another one of those groups of regulars that refuses to go by a consistent name, so I just mentally refer to them as "the guys") emerged victorious this week with a health lead over The Dome of Tubes, who came just one point ahead of Dr. Spaceman, who narrowly inched past Robots Drinking Tea in this weeks sudden death tiebreaker.

As my tenure as the Blue Star QM beings to sprint to a close (but hopefully not - I plan to kick that guy's ass), we march onto the holiday season, which is sure to have a lot of extra cheer and festivites injected into the quizzes.

Until next week!

We weren't exactly breaking fire code regulations, but oh boy, was it crowded at the Blue Star last night. Filled to the brim with 17 teams - 17 large teams, even.

I've said it before (or at least thought it before) and I'll say it again: the Blue Star is one of my favorite places in the world. From the deliciously dry cider they've recently added to their draft selection to the lamb meatball spaghetti special that I devoured last night, there is no place in town that rivals this fine establishment in the area of consumable comforts.

And it was quite a festive evening, filled with toothache-inducing songs and Michael Jordan endorsement commercials and even a poop-centric visual round that every single team got 100% correct - proving once and for all that the fine patrons of the Blue Star really know their shit.

After some of the recent additions to the roster of regulars dominated last week, some of the more established veterans returned to the top this week, which comes to show that it's really anyone's game.

As the days get shorter and the evenings crisper, I have a feeling that competition will only continue to get fiercer.

Until next week.
