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!

Last night's visual round was fantastic, and like many great rounds it seemed to be a perfect mix of challenging and doable.  1/3 of the teams got it perfect, 2/3 of the teams got above 50%, the bottem 1/3 struggled.  That's perfect.

But at the same time it was a missed opportunity, in my eyes.  We had you naming the artist who created the work of art that had been used on a band's album cover.  But the name of the round was NOT Anal Bum Cover.  And that's unfortunate.

If you don't understand that reference, #1 get off of my lawn.  #2, look up SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy.  The best recurring skit of SNL's last nearly 20 years (ever since the show lost Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, and the other brilliantly hilarious people from the early 90s).  And then get off of my lawn again.

What a great night, though.  We got everyone in out of the heat, the Royals had already won, Sporting was playing an exhibition game so it didn't matter they lost, and we didn't have a single seat open in the red room, and had a team playing from the annex as well.  And it was close, again, but not as close as last week.  Still, it all came down to the last round, as it should.

The Recently in Stuff round proved most of you are pretty well up on your current events, but we still only had 2 perfect scores from Lack of Institutional Support and Tax That Ass.  The music round was HUGE for some of you, with 15 points coming from Herman's Hermits.  The round where you had to name 8 of the top 10 highest paid actors in Hollywood just destroyed everyone.  M as in Mancy led the way with 6, but 13 out of 15 teams had half or less on this round.  Most had 3 or less.  The round where you had to answer Clippy the Paperclip's questions was pretty random, but Tax That Ass found it no trouble with another perfect score.

The round that should have been called Anal Bum Cover had 5 perfect scores, including Kiss Us, We're Irish and This Taint Fair.  The round on resolutions brought a perfect score from The Whiskey Sourers, who would then repeat that feat in the audio round naming the famous Mister.  Kiss Us, We're Irish led the way in the final round with 14 out of 16.

When it was all said and done, the top 5 teams were separated by a mere 6 points.  We haven't had a 2nd-place tie in a long time at Hooper's...that needs to happen again, I need to see another chugging contest.

1st Place - Herman's Hermits
2nd Place - Lack of Institutional Support

Pronouncing names of dinosaurs is difficult business, especially if you're not a paleontologist.  Spelling paleontologist is also hard, if you're not a strong speller.

But seriously, pronouncing dinosaurs isn't like pronouncing states.  We all really only learned a few of them, like Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and others that were in The Land Before Time.  It wasn't until Jurassic Park that any of us had heard of Velociraptors, Gallimiuses or Dilophosauruses.  And the Dilophosaurus depicted in Jurassic Park was not at all a Dilophosaurus.  They neither had a retractable neck frill, nor did they spit poison.  And I also have to call into question the "science" behind a poison that a dinosaur would spit that is aimed at the eyes (did this fictional Dilophosaurus also have the problem-solving intelligence of the Velociraptor so that it could understand what eyes are and why they're important?) and how would the poison ingest itself into your central nervous system to paralyze you if it was applied topically to your eyes?

I'm not trying to hate on Jurassic Park, because that movie rules in a way few other movies ever can.  But it just REALLY got that part wrong.  It made for a fun way for Newman to die, sure, but it would have been better if they'd just made up some dinosaur that didn't exist instead of completely changing the makeup of an existing one.  We now have a generation of people who think that's what the Dilophosaurus could do, and it's not true.  We also have a generation of people that believe the movie JFK is an accurate depiction of what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963, but that's a whole other issue.

So I'm not going to hold it against newbie Tracey for not knowing how to pronounce Apotosaurus right out of the gate.  We grew up calling this thing Brontosaurus, which is inaccurate as well, so honestly what do paleontologists really know?  Who gets to decide that this is uh-POT-o-SOR-us instead of AP-uh-to-SOR-us.

Emmanuel Lewis, that's who.

That joke was high brow.  Too high for Emmanuel Lewis to even see it.

On.  Fucking.  Fire.

Great night at Hooper's!  The closest quiz I've EVER seen!  When 9th place and 1st place are separated by a mere 4 points...to say every answer counts is an understatement.

1st Place - Shhh! The Plants Can Hear Us!
2nd Place - Smashed Her Cherry

Thanks for being there!  Can't wait to see you all again next week.

I need to trust ourselves better than I did last night, but a day after losing my #$&%ing car in long-term parking for 2.5 hours I've been having a confidence crisis.

So many people put Liam Neeson as an answer for question #1 in round 6 that it made me think maybe he, as well as Keira Knightley, had been in Phantom Menace, Love Actually, and Atonement.  It was going to throw me off a bit, but I wasn't going to let my teams lose points on my watch!  NO SIR!  And ultimately, GWD was proven correct.  Neeson wasn't in Atonement, and actually Neeson and Depp have never worked together other than in awards shows.

Like I always say, this quiz is fixed.  We have the correct answers, your answers need to match those.

And we had a sports round tonight!  We do not cater to our sports geeks near enough, and I think this round did a great job of finding the right niche because it gave non-sports fans a chance at the questions but still challenged the SportsCenter watchers as well.  Was a little surprised at how many have already forgotten Leon Lett, but at the same time he's not really worth remembering other than for the things he did wrong.  Like letting Don Beebe strip the ball from him at the 1-inch line.  Or trying to recover a blocked field goal for no discernable reason whatsoever.  Or a mountain of cocaine.

It was truly great to be back among my Charlie Hooper's friends.  I don't take many weeks off, but when I do, I don't really feel like I'm back at home until I get my Wednesday quiz in.  Best venue in the city, anyone who says otherwise is wrong.

Because this quiz is fixed.

And hot damn if we didn't ALSO have a question about fighting games last night!  I grew up on Street Fighter, Tekken and Soul Calibur.  If by grew up, of course, you mean "played from your teens to your mid twenties".  Same thing, right?  RIGHT?!

Very varied and awesome results last night in a great quiz, both challenging and fun.  We had a perfect score in Round 1 from Scott Loves Mangoritas, a perfect score in the music round from Finding Gary Busey, perfect scores in round 3 from Lack of Institutional Support and Scott Loves Mangoritas, perfect scores in round 4 from Finding Gary Busey and Not Car Ramrod, and perfect scores in round 7 from Finding Gary Busey and Not Car Ramrod.

AND...we had a tie for 1st at 83 points!  A great comeback by Lack of Institutional Support with the top score in round 8, 13, plus their joker to force the tie.  Finding Gary Busey had been riding high all night from their perfect round 2, but a tough round 8 cost them.  So we sent it to OT, and I had to dig way back into an old quiz because we've used these sudden death rounds at Hooper's already.  In the end, it was Lack of Institutional Support pulling out a 3-1 win in Penalty Kicks to take the win.

Thanks again everyone for an awesome night!  Great to see you all again, can't wait to do it all over next week.
