I can never die.

Greetings All!

Kevin here.

Your resident substitute Quiz-Master.

I was happy enough to step in for the night to Quiz you all wonderful people at The Maple Leaf, even if I felt like I was sitting in Time-Out the entire night whilst sitting in the penalty box.

We had 10 teams battle it out for supremacy last night. 

But first.

Let's review.

It was troubling to grade round 3 tonight, as most of you all didn't know the difference between Marvel and DC.

Marvel is like ... way better, y'all! WAY BETTER! YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW!

The better of you got four points this round. Tsk Tsk.

You rocked current events though, so congrats on that. Way to pay attention to the actual world and not the one in the pages of a comic book.

... it doesn't make you better.

Close game tonight among the top teams.

But in the end:

Machine Shope Murder Squad placed second with 64 points.

And

The Quizmaster Said Fuck finished with 69 points.

 

It's true.

I did.

Many, many, ... many times.

Thanks for having me, Maple Leaf.

You were a great crowd, you were geeks, and you drank like it.

If you won I hope you celebrated mightily. 

As for myself, I decided to crack open a bottle of wine. -_-

Life will return to normal for you next week!

... I hope so.

Hello!

I started playing quiz with GWD at the Maple Leaf Pub. I heard they were in search of quizmasters and decided to audition. I am quite the social butterfly. so I figured: meet new people, free booze, and quiz. What more could a girl ask for?

By day, I am a middle school Industrial Technology Teacher- yes 12-14 year olds and power tools. I'm an Aggie (WHOOP!), a dog lover, and a scorpio. My favorite color is purple and one day I hope to venture to Costa Rica, Italy, and Australia. That's me in a nutshell.

Heyo! Well it is a bittersweet friday. I am having a fun filled weekend in Galveston starting at 3 o'clock today. However, I will be greeted Monday with 150 new 7th and 8th grade (mostly boys) children bright and early Monday morning. That's right, its already the beginning of school again. This will be my 9th year teaching! Damn, where does the time go? Thank goodness I have some great friends and faculty at my school to handle all my craziness. I am also going back to school this semester with the final goal of a doctorate, but first things first, I have to get a second bachelor's. Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment, or maybe I'm just super geeky and love learning. I prefer to think of it as 1 part the first and 3 parts the latter.

In Thursday's quiz we had rounds on recipes (suck it Paula Deen), Bands and their breakaways (super tough round btw), Alex Jones and Macho Man (Ohhhh yeeaaahhh!), the great Yo-Yo Ma (orgasmic for the ears), nasty chompers (remember, Chunk was the truffle shuffle kid), Wikileaks (Colbert Rocks!), and some movies of future Jedis (is that the correct plural for Jedi?). Throw in some Shakespeare, Rugby, and People's Choice for Random Knowledge, and we have a game folks (PS TSwift puts the cunt in country! 

The scores were super close all night! I think that was due to the general bombing of round 2 causing almost everyone to joker round 8. In the end, The Brunch Club regained their throne with BlackHawks are awesome close behind. A lot of Rumble points were gotten tonight. Also, in case you haven't heard, our next themed quiz is Seinfield so there's that.

Thanks for coming out!
See y'all next Thursday :)

So it's almost time for me to cry non-existent tears (I'm the least emotional female I know), I have to return to work on Monday :( I can honestly say I didn't do shit this summer. My students come back on the 25th so I'm gonna close out the summer with a bang with a music festival in Galveston the weekend before. I'm actually supposed to report tomorrow at 7 fucking 30 for a workshop but I'm just using one of my absence days because I want one last friday to sleep in. Enough about me; we had the Dallas Stars in the house tonight. They brought a big ass star that you could take a picture with and win free tickets if you tweeted/facebooked it. I'm not a Stars fan but I did it anyways in hope that I would win tickets to a game against one of my teams. I have 3 b-t-dubs. #1 Pittsburgh #2 Wild #3 Nlackhawks. Maybe in my next blog, I'll share with you all my reasoning behind these three.

Anyways, there was also a quiz tonight. We had rounds on Duh! (obvious answers), Jimmy Fallon remakes. Wall Street Lingo, the sad demise of Mr. Williams, Men in drag, cancelled shit, and some FABULOUS book reviews by Sparky Sweets, Ph.D. Throw in some phone etiquette, peninsulas, and one-eyed wonder weasels for Random Knowledge, and we have a game folks! 

It was super close in the end but Actually in 1st Place came out on top. Apparently, this was their first 1st place win so CONGRATS GUYS!!!! They must be going hard for the Rumble. The Soft High Fives were a super close second. I always want to say their name in a Fluttershy voice. It was a good night. 

PS: Can I note that we had 3 teams tie with 66 in 6th place... eeek!

Thanks for coming out!
See y'all next Thursday :)
