What a night, what a quiz. The cool autumn weather led to a packed house and a highly competitive showdown between newcomers and veterans alike.

Quick recap:

The third place prize went to team that had undoubtedly the most dedicated quizzer in the bar: My Wife May Be in Labor. Ahead of them were regulary heavy-hitters A Team Named Slickback, with regulars-with-irregular-team-names The Lactokinetics taking the top spot.

PSA: Next week's quiz will likely have a delayed start in light of the 'Hawks playing some good ol' fashioned Monday Night Football. (Imaginary) bonus points to whichever team name has the best dig at the Washington Redskins (or, if you want to be PC about it, the Maryland Redskins).

See you all then!

The look of shock and anger from the quizzers as I read the name "Tinkerbell" during Round 8 was unrivaled. Mulan? Sure. But Tinkerbell? How could she possibly be considered a Disney Princess?

Well turns out that "Disney Princesses," like many of the seemingly-innocent things in life, is nothing but an offically licensed branding name that a boardroom of Disney marketing execs put together at the dawn of the millennium. They would later come to their senses and removed Tinkelbell from the official group, but not before letting her cement her place in product merchandising history as a member of the original line-up.

Things were just so much simpler and less commerical back when Disney was run by its crazy Anti-Semite founder.

Tonight's quiz consisted of yet another sudden death tiebreaker resulting in yet another additional sudden death tie-breaker that put Wu Tang for the Children ahead of It's Michelle for the third place prize. A Team Named Slickback took second place tonight, with a single-point lead putting Caleb's Team at the top.

Until next time!

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!
