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

A very fun night at Charlie Hooper's for the Seinfeld quiz! It's a great pleasure to host there, so much so that I spent my birthday doing it (thanks for the shot, Masters of Our Domain!). 


The attendance was very, very real and spectacular, we had to spill out into two rooms, and even attempted to move things to the patio as well. It's great to see so many Seinfeld-ians out. I consider myself a fan, but not as big as you all, apparently. The mere mention of certain words had many teams in stitches, while my impression of Kramer as Moviefone didn't get response from the crickets (Sidenote: There are no crickets at Charlie Hooper's).

 

The White Whales took home the gold with 89 points! Spongeworthy and Master of the House tied for second with 87 points. Thanks for all for coming out!

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!

Everyone that was at Hooper's last night should have had a blast.  I know I did, and I'm pretty sure everyone else did.  If you didn't, it's your own damn fault.  Go find a Bakkushan to follow around unti you feel better.

But last night had a lot of everything.  There was a lot of really funny/clever questions and answers, a very achievable music round which is always fun, even the round 7 audio round was very doable without being overly easy.  The 50/50 round destroyed a few teams, and round 8 was REALLY tough, but overall this was a magnificently constructed quiz.

And it was all highlighted by the fact that Finding Gary Busey, still not over their 1-point loss from last week, changed their name to Copying Off Bandersnatch.  They even sat next to Beware the Bandersnatch, though I think that was coincidence.  After our round 6 break, those two teams were tied.  That was awesomely poetic and very well-received.  I wanted to end it right there because seriously what are the chances?

Copying beat Beware by 2 in round 7, so I figured the magic was gone.  NOT SO FAST, MY FRIEND!  Beware came back to beat Copying by 2 in round 8, and the result was an overwhelmingly awesome tie.  Which resulted in this happeing:

We also had the TWO-TIME, TWO-TIME, TWO-TIME Kansas City Regional Quiz Champions in the house.  Would won last year's CowTown Challenge to become the first officially crowed top team in Kansas City, and followed it up by winning the Rumble in the Pub to retain the belt.  Love 'em, hate 'em, you have to respect them.  I gave them an officially unofficial theme song last night.  They went into round 8 last night with a 4-point lead.  Pretty obvious they're going to live up to the hype.

They lost by 2.

Seemingly out of nowhere, some new kids on the block came in last night, called themselves The Goods Are Odd, and quietly kept themselves in the game all night.  Then in round 8, they had a venue-best 12 points to run away with 1st place.  And they're gonna come back TONIGHT for the Seinfeld Quiz.  Remains to be seen if they can repeat, but they definitely turned some heads last night.

Lots of close, high scores last night.  Besides the Bandersnatch ties at 74 for 3rd place, there was also a tie for 5th at 73 between Herman's Hermits and the lovely ladies of Book Club Who Drinks.  Glad you guys were able to get a spot and play, hope you'll be back again soon!

And then of course M as in Mancy got the best possible score with 69.  Did you guys happen to see Wednesday's Jeopardy?  There was a category yesterday called "-Mancy Pants".  Made me laugh, and of course think of you guys.  I now want to call you guys M as in Mancy Pants.

COME ON BACK TO HOOPER'S TONIGHT!  We're gonna quiz all about Seinfeld!  7:30pm, details at http://www.geekswhodrink.com/seinfeld.  I will be there, though not hosting, because I'm going to play and I'm going to single-handedly win this thing (even though I can't win the money as an employee).  So you can win the money, but I'll win the shit-talking.

There was a larger amount of answers last night that were NFL teams than I think I've seen in the previous year combined.  Of course, 8 of them came in 1 round, but still.  11 total answers last night were NFL teams, and you didn't need to actually know anything about football to answer them.

This is how we give a nod to sports fans without making it impossible for those less enthralled by sports.

You needed to know geography, and you needed to know who had the newest stadiums, but you didn't need to know much else.  I mean, I guess knowing who the teams are would have been helpful.

What also was helpful last night was opera knowledge, but not a lot of you came up with that.  Last night the scoring wasn't as crazy high as the last few weeks, but it was no less competitive.  We narrowly missed having a 3-way tie for first with the top 3 teams finishing 73-72-71.

Beware the Bandersnatch ruled the night with perfect scores in rounds 1, 5 and 6.  They were able to hold off a late and impressive charge from Finding Gary Busey who had the highest score in round 8 with 13 points.  Herman's Hermits needed just a single correct answer more in round 8 to send the quiz to OT for the 2nd week in a row.

Herman's Hermits also had a perfect round 4, while M as in Mancy nailed a perfect round 7.

I'm at home sick today so I have to cut this one short.  Thanks for another great week, Hooper's!  See you next time!
