I'm Travis. Grammar nerd for a large corporation and rock 'n' roll enthusiast. 

I had a great time filling in for David at Charlie Hooper's last night! It's a great place to play and to host, always has been.


What did we learn from the game? "Feck you!" is a passable swear. Palindromes are much more exciting as whole phrases (nothing will ever touch "Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas). Jack Nicholson is in a Few Good Movies (see what I did there?). And Earthbound is one of the best video games that ever existed.


Congrats to Strawman Plan for coming in second with 79 points, and a bigger congrats to Wolf Cop's Feathered Merkin for coming in first with 87! In the end, we're all winners, right? Thanks to all for the great night!

When I'm not solving network/email problems in my real life, I'm likely spending time absorbing random facts from movies, TV shows, video games, songs, and sports.  Love all things KC, be it Royals, Chiefs, Sporting KC, Boulevard Beer, BBQ, whatever.

Mostly I love trivia, especially random trivia, which is what led me here.  As fun as it is to be a player, I find it even more fun to run the Quiz.  I'm like a younger, American, half-wit version of Alex Trebek that drinks and curses on the job.  And that's a really fun job!

I am a sentimental man.  I have a tendency to be a bit cheesy sometimes.  I cry at sad movies, and I cry at happy movies.  I can be a bit of a wuss when it comes to emotions, but I'm perfectly okay with that.

So allow me to tap into that side of me for a minute and thank all of you, my Charlie Hooper's quiz family, for being so great.  Sincerely, I mean it from the bottom of my heart:  I think you guys are all great people and I appreciate every one of you.  Thank you so much for the wonderful card you all gave me to congratulate me on my upcoming wedding.  Jihan and I had a great time reading everything everyone wrote, and she knows who all of you are by your team names anyway because she has to hear about you every week.

It put a huge smile on our faces, and it means a lot to me.  Thank you all.  You're great!

And a very special shoutout to my wedding twins, Amanda and John of Hispanic at the Disco who are getting married on the same day I am :-)  Small but awesome world!  Congratulations, you two!

Okay, that's enough of that!  There was a rockin' quiz this week at Hooper's and we did it with the help of our newb from Wichita, Koby!  I think Koby will do great down in Shocker country and he had the good fortune of getting to learn from THe Dave and the great crowd at Hooper's.

Round 1 started off with a round of Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred driving across the country.  The round of boo's and hisses when they got to St. Louis was fantastic.  Most of you got 8 for 8.

The music round, like some other rounds, focused on taxes and songs about taxes (and death).  Pretty strong overall, with Lack of Institutional Support and Plan Deez Nuts leading the way with 14 out of 16.

Round 3 didn't include Bon Jovi, but every answer was "Dead" or "Alive".  What other song did you all really expect me to play during that round?  Seriously!  If I *hadn't* played Dead or Alive, it wouldn't have been right.  Again, a large number of perfect scores in the round.

In round 4 Koby tested your knowledge of things related to prom.  Good ol' prom night.  It's a night that is both overrated and yet perfectly rated.  It sure is made out to be this magical night you'll never forget and yadda, and it's not exactly that, but at the same time I remember both of my prom nights very well so I'm glad I didn't miss them.  I guess it really is the perfect microcosm of high school.  Anyway, more perfect scores galore with three teams not missing any.

The visual round challenged you to identify states and match them with words that could come after that name.  Things like Washington Post, Texas Roadhouse, Indiana Jones, etc.  I have to say I don't get the reference for Georia Power or Pennsylvania Lottery.  And I'm not going to bother looking them up.  Six more perfect scores.

Round 6 was yet another round on things that are unpleasant and inevitable, taxes and death.  The quiz started to get a bit tougher in this round, as only Impeach the Feathered Merkin was able to score a perfect round.

The 2nd audio round had you naming the movie where someone in the movie gave an exposition of the plot.  Two more perfect scores in the round (a very high scoring night overall).

Then finally the random knowledge round, where we tested among other things your knowledge of international geography, Michael Jackson albums, presidential elections and what team is 6-13,000 for their all-time record.

And on this very high scoring night, the game ended with a 1 point margin of victory.

Congrats to Lack of Institutional Supprt for their win at 82 points!  Plan Deez Nuts was right behind them at 81.

And that's all I've got for you this week!

When I'm not solving network/email problems in my real life, I'm likely spending time absorbing random facts from movies, TV shows, video games, songs, and sports.  Love all things KC, be it Royals, Chiefs, Sporting KC, Boulevard Beer, BBQ, whatever.

Mostly I love trivia, especially random trivia, which is what led me here.  As fun as it is to be a player, I find it even more fun to run the Quiz.  I'm like a younger, American, half-wit version of Alex Trebek that drinks and curses on the job.  And that's a really fun job!

So said a member of our winning team last night after we blatantly insulted Fast and The Furious sequels, and their utter unnecessity.  Full disclosure, I haven't seen anything beyond the first one which he claims is the worst one.  But while I didn't write the question, I have to agree with the sentiment:  the sequels are utterly unnecessary.  So, I'm going to see a 90-ish minute movie with cars going fast, defying physics, being expertly driven by gritty, pretty people, all while narrowly escaping both the law and the even worse bad guys they're up against, set to a background of edgy techno or contrived hip hop.

Am I close?  I bet I'm close.  Oh, and then all of a sudden The Rock is there.

The Rock and Vin Diesel are interchangable, in my opinion.  I don't think any movie (outside of Saving Private Ryan and Guardians of the Galaxy) would in any way be noticeably changed if you swapped Vin Diesel and The Rock.  Vin could play the role in The Mummy movies.  Vin could play the role in Walking Tall or whatever that movie was.  The Rock would have made a great Riddick.  The Rock would have been awesome in Boiler Room.

And it's a missed opportunity that Vin Diesel wasn't an answer in tonight's R6 about Diesels, Weasels and Measles.  That's a missed opportunity.  But I guess it would have been utterly unnecessary.

So on the subject of our winning team, The Feathered Merkin for President, holy shit guys...nice job!  91 points is a masterpiece.  Yes, tonight was a 104-point quiz instead of the standard 96, but that's the equivalent of getting 84 on a normal night.  84 is usually enough to win, and 91 tonight certainly was.  You barely even needed to use your joker.  Most well done, Feathered Merkins.  And you got the last laugh by making me play Furious 7's main song as your victory lap.  Jerks.

The drama tonight was the contest for 2nd, but it also wasn't all that dramatic.  F. Scott Titzgerald was in 2nd at the first break, and remained there the entire night.  Their strength was shown in round 3, the Sooner or Later round about Hall of Famers in baseball, basketball and football.  They went for the 2 points, and only missed one.  14 points in that round is REALLY impressive, because some of those clues were rather obscure.  Not obscure enough for F. Scott Titzgerald!  79 points, 2nd place, well done.

They held off a late charge from both Beware the Bandersnatch and Herman's Hermits, two of Hooper's most regular and venerable teams, who finished with 77 and 74, respectively.

And that's all the quiz that's fit to print for this week!  Thanks again, everyone!  See you next week!
