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!

R1Q1, answer is Italy.

R4Q1, answer is Italy.

R8Q7, answer is Italy.

Whether that was planned or not, we'll never know.  But the fact is you've never needed to know more about Italy for a quiz.  Which, you know, I guess it was literally 3 things.  Three points doesn't always make a huge difference in quiz, but it doesn't hurt to get the points when you can get them.

Case in point, our good friends of The Feathered Merkin in their many forms.  Each week, The Feathered Merkin is doing something different, but they're always around.  The thing they hadn't been doing different is their spot in the standings.  Pretty consistent, really.  The Merkins usually can be found in the "really good night, but not quite good enough" spots of like 3rd-5th place.  At least twice they've tied for 2nd, losing at least one of them.  But tonight, when the final countdown was completed (sick reference, bro), we had a 1st time champion.

The Feathered Merkin:  In Smell-O-Scope Where Available, took an early lead and never let go.  They had to hold off a great performance from Herman's Hermits (as usual) and M as in Mancy (also not surprising) to claim the victory, but claim it they did.  And now that we've added winning teams theme music into the mix, we'll always remember hearing the sweet chords of Europe fire up to signify the victors.

1st Place - The Feathered Merkin:  In Smell-O-Scope, 84 points
2nd Place - Herman's Hermits, 80 points
3rd Place - M as in Mancy, 78 points

In the category of things that are more or less than 4 hours, this quiz comes in well into the under.  But if I don't hurry up and post this blog, the amount of hours it is late will be in the over.  Sorry to be brief, but last night was a blast as always!  Let's do it again as soon as possible!

And big thanks to Nebraska Brewing for the extra swag to give away last night, especially for the 3rd place prize.  I'd love it if we could make that a regular thing.

Treat yo' self to our first ever Parks & Rec theme quiz on February 28th at Green Room Burgers & Beer at 3:00pm. You can RSVP and find all the details on the event page (http://bit.ly/GWDParksRec).

Not many of you were able to come up with many of the movies that Spielberg directed between 2004-2008, but an even smaller set of that were the people who came up with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  It was like...2 teams, tops.

Count yourself unlucky if you remembered that movie because you've seen that movie.  I've not seen it, but from all accounts I would hate that movie about as much as I would hate watching someone cut off my foot.

Also among things from round 8 that basically nobody knew was that you lose about 1/8 of an ounce each time you fart.  One team got that one, and it might have been with a bit of help.  But I wonder if this is going to lead anyone to try a "Fart Your Way Thin!" diet.  It would have you eating a lot of beans, which are full of fiber, which is a great way to lose some weight on a diet by eating high fiber foods.  So maybe farting doesn't actually lose you any weight, it's just a byproduct of the high fiber diet weight loss.

Oh, bad science.  Do I know the difference?  I do not.

Yet another packed house and yet another 1-point game!  It's just the Charlie Hooper's way.

1st Place - Herman's Hermits with 80 points
2nd Place - Hot Boxcar Children with 79 points

Best team name of the night was Smirnoff ISIS.  THAT is a great example of a humorous and topical team name!  Thanks for the laugh, guys!

Nor was that Gerald Ford.  But, I guess we already know that.  You were there, you heard the answers.

LOTS of correct answers last night, as it ended up being a very high-scoring quiz.  Sixth place had 75 points, which is often good enough to win.  And it was only 7 points out of 1st, so it was a very close battle throughout the night.

Probably the biggest surprise to me was the fact that 0 out of 12 teams jokered the music round.  That's very much not normal, other than when it's just a brutal round.  But we had 4 teams with double digits last night, so it wasn't exactly a round on Ancient Egyptian Operas.  Still, with everyone saving that until the end of the night it made for a very interesting finish.

Lots of perfect scores last night, but wanted to give special attention to Hispanic at the Disco who had the only perfect score in Round 3 about Norse and Greek mythology.  They killed it in that around, and seemed VERY confident the entire way through it so obviously it was with good reason.  They also had the highest score in round 8, getting a magnificent 15 out of 16 in the round.  Unfortunately, all of that was still only good enough to draw them to a 3rd place tie with Die Hard With a Feathered Merkin at 78 points.

Shark of the Covenant, best team name of the night in my opinion, came in 2nd place last night with 81 points.  The stalwart duo of Herman's Hermits took an early lead and held on to it all night to win with 82 points.

Would love to chat more, but my brain is fried.  Have a great weekend, everyone!  See you next week!
