Bummed that I missed you guys last week. I was driving down I-95 in Maine when the drain plug in my oil tank fell out, spilling all my oil out of the car and seizing up my engine. It was pretty bad, but at least I got out of the state before an invisible dome could come down and trap me. Oh Maine, you make good beers, and you have a tree-to-human ratio of about 100,000,000 to one, but man some of your towns are still mired in the 1940s and are showing no chance of modernizing any time soon. When the tow truck came to pick me up, I more than half expected to see Red Green hop out with a roll of duct tape and some WD-40. Because as he likes to say, “If it moves when it shouldn’t, use duct tape. And if it doesn’t move when it should, use WD-40.”

This was somewhat relevant because we had a round last night on defunct countries and names. While Maine is not a defunct country, it did go by a different name once. Up until 1820, it was a part of Massachusetts, and if you are in a house built before that year, its owner will tell you that it was built in the Bay State. At that point, you’ll ask how the house was moved from Massachusetts to Maine, and then the owner will point out to you that Maine was once part of Massachusetts before it seceded.

History lesson aside, we had a quiz last night and there were 18 TEAMS! Thanks to each and every one of you guys for coming. The winning team was #Free Pistorious who apparently did not know how to spell the Blade Runner’s last name (there’s only one o). Speaking of spelling errors, the team of medical students misspelled Novocain. I hope none of them are planning on being anesthesiologists. The drug name is actually procaine, and the commercial name is Novocain, though it is often spelled with an e at the end when referred to in general terms. But they, and many other teams, spelled it novacaine. Good thing spelling didn’t count on that one.

In second place was Tweedle Dumb. Now I don’t know how they did last week, but I was glad to see them finally break through into the winner’s circle this time. They had been inching up in the standings as team leader Derwin mixed and matched his friends to optimize his chances of winning and it looks like he finally found the right combination. Keep it up!

One team prematurely ejokerated, using the joker on a 9-point round when had they saved it for their 15-point performance in round 8, we’d have had a tiebreaker for first. Another team lost their joker for playing with more than 6 people. They could have finished in second if they followed the rules. Anyways, thanks everyone for coming out. I really enjoy seeing all your faces. Come back next Tuesday for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz!

Jonathan (Jon Julio Anejo)

My name is Jonathan and I hail from West Roxbury.  I came over from a competing pub quiz company in the Boston area that was started in this very same neighborhood.  If you can guess who they are, message me with the correct answer to win nothing. You know who else comes from here?  The actress who played Dagny in Atlas Shrugged Part I but not Atlas Shrugged Part II.  I bet you'd love to know more fun facts about West Roxbury.

I grew up in a Suburban town South of Boston which now includes a large retail outpost for a company in Sweden that makes furniture. After high school I spent the next 12 years in Philadelphia where I paid a large amount of money for a college degree which I do not currently use.  Over 40 grand to lose my Boston accent.  I also hacked out a living in my post-college career bumming around the "Swamps of Jersey".  These days I tend bar at a Restaurant in Boston for a living.  And yes Mom and Dad, it's a way of making a living

As far as quizmastering goes, I can be found both in Boston and in Cambridge.  I run the show at Battery Park on Monday nights at 7:00pm as well as at The Phoenix Landing in Central Square on Wednesday nights at 7:30.  Stop by and say hi!

Filling in at the Hong Kong is always fun, and I'm always grateful that Ryan lets me do it when he needs a night off. Staff is awesome, the crowd is awesome and they have some killer beers here. Some of those beers were mentioned in tonight's brew-heavy round 4 which was very well performed.

Tonight was dominated (plagued?) by Ebolacoaster Tycoon who nailed round after round, earning no less than 7 points in a single round and kind of sliding off in round 8 with a score of 8 but the damage was certainly done. Sneaking into 2nd place due to a team size violation by We Can't Win Anyway was the runner-up prize winning Happy Birthday Amanda. All was not lost for We Can't Win as a member of the that team won this week's email bonus. Nicely done! 

I stuck around after the quiz to watch a little playoff baseball and chatted with an O's fan about his teams chances against the red hot Royals. He seemed hopeful but not too enthused. I also appreciate when depravity is peppered into the quiz. Ebola, dead people and the unabomber were all fair game. As always, its been fun. Hope to pop in here sometime again soon!

Hey, can we have crowds like last night every week? Oh man you guys were awesome. And there were so many of you. Every time I looked up there was another team grabbing an answer packet. Sixteen teams in all. Must be because the calendar has turned to October. For weeks, my friends and I have labeled October as the most amazing epic month of the year. A month so full of rage and awesomeness that we’ll be talking about it for years to come. And I get to spend four nights of it with you guys! So far my October has involved congratulations drinks, boozy brunch, drinking with friends in the rain, house dance party, holy crap that was a long meeting drinks, and a surprise field trip for 25 of my friends to a brewery. And that was just the first week. This weekend I’m camping in a very remote part of Maine where I’ll be attempting an orienteering challenge that goes from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. If I’m not at the Hong Kong next week for quiz, it’s probably because I got eaten by a bear.

Of our 16 teams last night we had to have a winner, and this week it was Pumpkin Spice Ebola, who so cleverly described probably the one pumpkin-flavored item not currently being sold at Trader Joe’s. (Seriously, they now have pumpkin toaster pastries—i.e., Pop Tarts.) Following them by just two points were the med school students Name That Sphincter! who fortunately got the pleurisy question right. Other notables included Jesus Sandals who made it up to third in the standings (inching up every week), the Wyld Stallyns who bested everyone else in the final round (though that dud in round 2 set them back by a lot), Seventh Heaven Second Base who went there, The Horny Rhinoceri for best Star Trek jacket, and It’s # Not Hashtag who need some grammar lessons.

Thanks to everyone who came to the quiz. No seriously, thank you. When I am lost and alone and cold in the Maine wilderness, I will use the sense of duty to bring you the best pub quiz as motivation to survive. Have great weeks and see you all next time!
