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!

When a team's name ends in a question mark, it's important to reflect that in your inflection.  Whoop There It Is is not the same as Whoop There It Is?  An important fact that needed to be remembered last night when announcing a team that tied for the most points, but unfortunatley had 7 players so couldn't win.  It's one of our 2 real rules, sorry I had to enforce it.

But I also realized how important inflection would be for other things last night, like during our music round called Let Me Show You My Organ.  You can tell someone you're an organ donor and nobody will think much of it.  But you change the inflection a bit and it's "I'm in 'organ' donor" and you're creepy as shit.

These are the things I think about when I'm tired and I don't want to be at work.

So last night was our last quiz of 2014 at Charlie Hooper's, but it was also a first in some ways.  It's the first quiz under the new management at Hooper's, who made the wise and proper decision to renew the Geeks Who Drink contract.  We plan on being at Charlie Hooper's for as long as possible; I can't imagine going through too many Wednesdays without it at this point.  I've hosted 70 quizzes at Charlie Hooper's, and I want to be there for at least 100, which will get us into August of 2015.  So, you're stuck with me for awhile.

We finished the year on a high note, with Hispanic at the Disco breaking the seal and getting their first win with 76 points.  Herman's Hermits and We've Got 99 Problems, And Trivia Is One finished tied at 74 so we got to see one final tiebreaker before signing off for the year.  In our first ever female vs female contest, Herman's Hermits was able to come out the winner.

And thanks to some awesome brainstorming after the night was through, I may have some improvements on the tiebreaker to introduce next year.  It'll probably end up with people TRYING to tie for 2nd.

Thanks again to everyone that made it out last night.  Great seeing  you, great to know we'll continue to see each other every week.

Have a wonderful Holiday season, a safe and Happy New Year, and I'll see all you wonderful people on January 7!

Last night we had to delay the start of our quiz about 30 minutes to wait for a basketball game to end so we could take over the audio for the whole bar.  We did this because we PACKED 21 teams into Charlie Hooper's last night for an incredible Quiz For a Cause event!  This time we were gathered together to support the Mid America Freedom Band and we did an amazing job.  In one night, we raised over $300 for them which is going to cover an entire season of music!  GREAT JOB, CHARLIE HOOPER'S!

And we're up go now 65 teams in the last 3 weeks of quizzing.  Things have never been livelier at Hooper's than they are right now!

Thanks to my awesome Scorekeeper for the night, Jen, we cruised right through this quiz in short order.  We may have started later than normal, but we ended at about the same time.  And it was a monstrously close quiz all the way to the end, *including* the tiebreaker being a nailbiter.

Herman's Hermits were the winners last night with 79 points, holding off Would and The Feathered Merkin's Hypnotic Twerkin' who finished with 78.  Would was able to take down the tiebreaker challenge by getting out a good whistle .

But, cliche though it may be, the real winners last night were obviously Mid America Freedom Band.  And their payday was made bigger when Herman's Hermits returned most of their cash prize to the charity, because that's how truly awesome they are.

Great time, everyone.  Can't wait to do it again.  Next week should be the last quiz of the year at Hooper's, so don't miss it!

Thanks again to everyone that made it out.  I can't tell you how much I love hosting quizzes at Charlie Hooper's, and I'm reminded of that every single week.

Two quizzes in a row now that we've had more teams than the red room can handle, so we're getting access to the whole bar's audio.  17 teams again!  LOVE IT!  With next week's Quiz For a Cause, I have no doubt we'll once again be taking up both sides of the bar.

If we do it again on 12/17, they're going to get me a full-time scorekeeper starting in January!  So, you know, KEEP IT UP!

ANYWHO...

As always, the quiz rocked last night.  Apparently we may have rocked too hard, because they kept turning down the volume in the bar which just made me have to turn myself up even louder.  For future reference, I need to let them know if my music is too loud just to come tell me, because I can turn that down.  But by turning EVERYTHING down, we make it hard for the quizzers to hear my beautiful voice.  That's just a crime.  I can't let that happen, I won't let that happen, and I can't let that won't happen.

We had a great representation of the regulars in the crowd, teams who are here just about every single week and have been for the now 18 months that I've been lucky enough to QM at Hooper's.  Teams like Beware the Bandersnatch, Lack of Institutional Support, Herman's Hermits, The Feathered Merkin and whatever it's doing that week, Hispanic at the Disco, and some other regulars that change their name frequently.

Among the most regular of teams is M as in Mancy.  Sometimes they play as Poontang Clan, but they'll always be M as in Mancy to me.  And when I say regular, I mean regular.  It's always a surprise to me when they're not there.  Always friendly.  Always drinking.  Always having fun.  Always competitive.  Always a pleasure to host.  Because of the overwhelming number of GREAT teams we have at Hooper's, they don't win often enough.  Maybe that makes me like them even more, because I *WANT* them to be rewarded for their undying loyalty to Hooper's and GWD, but mainly it's because they're awesome and also Mizzou fans.

And last night, they rocked the house.  One of 2 teams to get a perfect score in round 1.  One of three teams to score 13 or better in round 2.  One of 6 teams to get a perfect score in round 3.  One of 4 teams to score perfect in round 4.  One of three teams to score perfect in round 7.  One of two teams to score 13 in round 8.

It's not easy to score 82 points in one of our quizzes, and they did it.  It's not easy to beat Herman's Hermits, Beware the Bandersnatch, Lack of Institutional Support, and the others all in one night, but they did it.  It was a masterful performance, one that was well-earned and very well-deserved.

Congratulations, M as in Mancy!

Second place went to Herman's Hermits with 79 points.

Folks, don't forget we've got a Quiz for a Cause event next week!  This time we'll be raising money for Mid American Freedom Band.  Bring EVERYONE YOU KNOW and $5 to play the quiz.  $5 from each team will be going to the winning team for the night, so this is a great way to get some extra cash in your pockets before the holiday season is over!
