Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Ah yes, we have finally made it - football is back, everyone. Rejoice! But even more than that, fantasy football is back, and everyone knows at least one person who won’t shut the hell up about his lineup or how his team is doing. Oh, you drafted Peyton Manning and managed to pick up Knowshon Moreno on the waiver wire? CALL GOODELL, WE HAVE A NEW GM IN THE MAKING.

Like I did last year, I want to do something to bridge the gap between our sports-loving crowd with the broader “geek” demographic of our audience. How many times have you read/seen/played something and wished you could put all of your favorite characters in one medium? I’m pretty sure there’s at least one person out there who would have looooooved to see Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor paired up with a different companion (Martha? Rory/Amy?), or to see Heroes’ Sylar face off against the Green Arrow. 

Well, let me present to you the 2nd Annual Fantasy Fantasy Football Team - a team devised to give nerds the squee-inducing joy of seeing their beloved characters under one umbrella while keeping the strategy of making a squad that will effectively play a football game. Here are a few of the picks I would make:

Quarterback: The Doctor. He changes his appearance every now and then, and he’ll need to do so in order to adapt to each defense being thrown his way. What better leader of your team than the last remaining Time Lord?

Running Back: The Flash. Duh. Because speed.

Wide Receiver: Oberyn Martell. The Red Viper’s agility and grace is seen when he’s stretching the defense on a go route, separating himself from any defender for easy, deep catches. The only problem with him is he celebrates and taunts too often resulting in multiple penalty yards. He was about to beat the Mountains one time, had their backs to the goal line, and his bragging and jesting penalized his team 98 penalty yards. The Red Viper’s team was then crushed by a safety in their own end zone.

Defense: Gandalf the Grey. I know I made this same pick last year. But just like the Seahawks defense, nothing has changed. He’s still the best, and he simply will. not. let. you. pass.

————————————

There was a three-way tie going into our last two rounds tonight, and fortunately our teams did enough to separate themselves from each other as well as the rest of the quizzing masses. When the dust settled, Chick-Fil-Atio eked out the win by two points while People Who Look Like Things snagged the second place prize. Excelente!

————————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Clearly Beats By Ray is such a unique and creative team name because we had two teams - independently - pick that as their moniker. So I had to change one to Beats By Ray J. Sorry, Ray J. I know you didn’t do anything wrong.

- Crimson Tide is not the name of the Judy Blume book chronicling a 12-year old girl’s puberty tribulations.

- Bo Burnham is the new Dane Cook.

- Pretty sure the reason the US Postal Service is getting funding slashed is because a ton of politicians found out that the Postmaster General is the second highest-paid position in government.

Awesome Team Name Shout-Outs!:

- Fantasy Felonball

- Colonel Mustard in the Billiard Room with the Candlestick

- Shhhhh! I Like Butts

- People Who Look Like Things

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

It’s hard to venture onto any social media platform and not see a photo that has been processed by Instagram. The ubiquitous app takes our captured memories, throws a shader on top of it for artistic aesthetic, and makes everyone feel like Annie Leibovitz.

Some of you may be new to Instagram, and the bevy of filter options available may be a bit overwhelming. This is how I feel when I have to edit my own photos with the app. Allow me to clear up what a few of the filters means so you can effectively edit your photos for posterity’s sake:

Normal - Everyone just looks…normal. Ew. If you wanted the photos this way, why the hell are you even using Instagram?

Rise - Inspired by the third movie in the Dark Knight trilogy, this will insert the chant spoken by the pit prisoners behind any video you make with the app.

Willow - This black-and-white filter is said to be the only one that can accurately capture the essence of Willow Smith in every person photographed.

Earlybird - Using People-Recognition Analysis (PRA), the filter adds a worm to each person’s hand in the photo. Meant to be used for motivational photos.

Toaster - Burns your photo, makes your kitchen smell awful for three hours.

Nashville - Another filter utilizing PRA, this puts a cowboy hat on everyone in the picture, and straps a guitar to their back. You know, Crazy Horse-style.

1977 - Traps the subject of your photo in a time warp back to 1977. To be used against your enemies or people who are just really dying to get back to “groovier times.”

——————————

Holy smokes - in only their third quiz ever, Timon and Pumbaa Are Dead held onto the first place lead for the majority of the night and went home with the top prize. AND they were only comprised of TWO PEOPLE! Despite having more people to reference, Dogfart Blanket Bingo Boogaloo finished only two points behind to take home the silver medal*. Well done, everyone.

*There is no silver medal. Still just a gift card.

——————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- I was wrong; Boy George’s “The Crying Game” was NOT the song used in the Billy Madison scene where Steve Buscemi gets an apology from Billy. That song would be “Telephone Line” by Electric Light Orchestra.

- One group confused Riff-Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show with Filch from the Harry Potter movies. Thankfully they weren’t confusing him with the actual Riff-Raff who exists today.

- When I ask you to identify a specific group of Zion, the answer will not be “Jewish.” That’s, like, all of them.

- Evidently EVERYONE thought the motto of “Faster, higher, stronger” belonged to Daft Punk.

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Autumn is almost here, and it can only mean one thing - everyone is about to break out the flannel again. I couldn’t be happier as I feel like the natural choice for a fabric to drape over my body would be flannel ten times out of ten. GET OUT OF HERE, KASHMIR. No one wants your smoothness at the cost of large sums of money.

I even have flannel bedsheets. Because when I’ve gotten home from a long day at work and all I want to do is rest, I’ll remove the flannel shirt I wore all day to slip into AN ENTIRE BED MADE OF IT. Much warmth. Such magic.

It’s hard to pinpoint when I became so attached to flannel. Most would assume it’s when a beard sprouted from my face and/or when thick-frame eyeglasses became my preferred method of sight-adjustment. I think it’s been in my blood forever, and I just wised up to its magnificence at some point. Four Year Strong put it best - flannel is the color of my energy.

The flannel revolution is nigh! State fairs across the country will soon serve Flannel Cakes. People will start to eat healthier by making flannel salads and using flannel seeds in recipes, but they will cheat on said diet with a delicious plate of flan-nel pastry. We will have a new breath of fresh air in comedy when the Anchorman changes his name to Will Flannel and stars in eight buddy cop movies with Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson, duh).

I, for one, welcome our new flannel overlords.

——————————

Amputato planted themselves in the first place spot, and refused to relinquish the lead the entire night. Second and third place were separated only by a point (GASP!). One in College & One on the Way tried their damnedest to start building a new college fund with their winnings, but Turtles Fuck Real Noisy managed to slip past for the second place finish. Excelente!

——————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Put your hand in the air if you learned what “TNT” stands for from Richie Rich.

- The team Boys Night Out reminded me of the brilliance of Dave Chappelle’s “Dudes Night Out” sketch.

- M&M Minis are not listed on the current M&M’s website’s product page, so to those of you who told me, “But I’ve seen them in the store!” - it’s probably old, stale candy, and you should stay far, far away from it.

- King Arthur’s legendary sword Excalibur is not spelled “Ex-calibur”. It was his only sword. There were no others.
